Recon Class Can Set Spawn Points In Battlefield 3

Posted on August 26, 2011 AT 07:04am

Battlefield 3 has made some changes to the way spawning works, for instance instead of being able to spawn off any member of the squad you can now only spawn on the squad leader.

Dice mentioned that they would be developing a new addition to the spawning system to help players who couldn’t get into a squad or if the squad leader wasn’t on the Battlefield, however they never mentioned what this addition would be.

Dice’s Gameplay Designer, Gustav Halling may have revealed this new addition via twitter;

“…play as recon and put out a radio beacon to spawn on…..Free choice for everyone!”

It appears that this radio beacon will act as a portable spawn point that can be put down by the Recon class and will allow the whole squad to spawn on it as opposed to going all the way back to base.
