Few things that I'd like FE to have that SQUAD has:
To me the idea of FOBS and RALLY POINTS is great, it's just all one ever asked for to have in this sort of squad-shooter game. Even though Squad doesn't have any vehicles added yet. This is actually even better as you can truly experience infantry fight on a 2km map. Thanks to the RALLY POINT and FOB system which is indispensible part of the game, you really have to think twice as a Squad Leader how you're going to push towards the objective and where to set up a a rally.
There's no easy way round of silly driving towards an objective and capping it. You really have to work hard to even get there, to slowly gain a foothold at an objective need to approach slowly by setting up rally points and just slowly moving up with your squad ever so closer.
Few important things to note: FOBS can be placed only every 400m from another FOB and need 3 men from your squad to do so.
Rally points can be set up anywhere but every 2 minutes and need 2 men from your squad nearby.
Rally points are automatically destroyed by the enemy being nearby.
Fobs are harder to destroy but for every enemy near it, it increases 10 seconds delay for your respawn on it. It is very crucial to work so that the enemy has a time & chance to kill enemy and cap that fob.
The recoil of your gun doesn't go up ridiculously high in the sky between stance & crouch position which I liked. But at the same time not too steady so that you can't continue fire with long bursts on long range too effectively like in RO2.
It is done just right imo.
Another thing I like - upon going to iron sights it doesn't zoom your screen, it only zooms in extra view when you press shift and still it's only for about 5 seconds (which is how long keeping the breath takes). After you exhale you can't just press shift and hold it for another 5 seconds, you actually have to wait a while which is great - it doesn't make the player abuse the zoom feature as much as in RO2. AND THERE IS NO STUPID EXTRA ZOOM UPON ANOTHER ZOOM THAT IS IN RO2. There's only 1 zoom and not very excessive which enables for long-lasting firefights rather than stupid picking everyone off head-shot sniping fest aka RO2.
You basically run with your squad on a full continent terrain and due to being able to set up a rally point which you can spawn on, you can get into contact with the enemy practically anywhere which is what I've always wanted.
I've seen situations we had to fall back because our previous objective has been under attack, or our FOB.
I love the high visibility distance where it stretches as far as eye can see on the map, the firefigts can be as far as 500m away on a 3km map.
Really do hope FE doesn't resort to those small-vision, low-distance maps that RO2 is usually known for and that it promotes extreme cod run'n'gun gameplay.
One of the great things about it is that you don't just run to an objective and fight an enemy. After with my squad establishing a fob (forward operating base) and securing an objective, our squad pushed up to take another objective from the enemy, but what happened was halfway to the bridge, some of our squads ran straight into two squads of enemy soldiers, and it was just a very intense firefight.
So that by setting up rally points in Squad is what it makes this whole unpredictibility on the battlefield accomplished, as you and your Squad can actually be taken by surprised or clashed with the enemy anywhere on the massive terrain battlefield. And despite a massive terrain there are actually many really intense close-combat fights in towns or compounds.
Another thing, in SQUAD it doesn't show kills on the scoreboard until the end of the round.
Would love FE to be just like SQUAD but the only difference it being set in ww2.
And must not forget of course, if DH can still pull off its old engine and have these it'd be awesome too.
