  • How many people are playing Squad?

    I see that Squad is on sale again on Steam for 35% off - $25.99. I'm thinking of getting it - how many people are playing it? Is there enough folks out there that a newbie could join in?

    Hey Takker,

    That is a great question! Not sure how many people actively play at the moment, but it is quite a lot. I recommend buying the game while on sale and trying it out, rather than paying full price for it later. So, sorry if this response is too late. It is in my opinion an absolutely fun game to play! If you like communication and winning because of team work (or losing for a lack of it) then this game is for you. The game isn't arcadish/lone wolf like COD, or full milsim like Arma, but finds that fine balance between the two. As for the newbie thing - Each and every one of us were newbies to Squad once, though some have the advantage of being Project Reality veterans, which Squad is more or less modeled after. New players are always welcome in the server, and we actually like being the first to get a crack at training new players because we get to show them the right way to play. I hope you buy the game, and I hope to see you in the server!

      Yes there are definitely enough populated servers that you could play anytime.
      And yes, new players are very welcome. there are quite a few TG squad leaders that will hold your hand as you learn how to play.

        Newbies are always welcome in my squads. Bring a willingness to learn, ask questions and some good running boots.

          The learning curve isn't very steep, and most of the squad leaders and players I've played with have been very welcoming and helpful to newbies. Certainly, any squad led by a TG member would be a great place to learn.

            Thank you both for the invites. I was on the TG server last night with some fellow pubs (TG squads were full) and all of my squad mates were helpful and supportive. I'll be back on this week and see if I can join up.
