Insurgents is the name of a semi-fictional playable faction in Squad. This faction was the first generic insurgent faction to be featured in Squad. They are featured on Middle-Eastern and Southern Asian style theaters against conventional factions.

History[edit | edit source]

Tired of constant invasions and occupations, these warriors have decided to take up arms and defend their homelands against the tyranny of outsiders. Having spent hundreds of years in conflict with outside nations with little equipment or minimal funding, this highly trained group of fighters grew extremely skilled in the art of guerrilla warfare. Despite an outdated arsenal, the Insurgents use a variety of Soviet equipment, as well as western weaponry to combat their enemies. The Insurgents will continue to fight until all foreigners have been driven from their homelands, just as they have done for centuries.

Flag[edit | edit source]

In the Insurgent flag, a yellow diagonal stripe line equally splits up the red and black backgrounds. An AKM is shown in full white in the canton.

In Game Equipment[edit | edit source]

Insurgent forces use predominantly Soviet weapons. Unlike the Russian Ground Forces (RGF), the Insurgents employ the usage of mostly older weapons, from the mid 1940's to 1980s, as they lack the logistics to access more modern military weaponry. To identify an insurgent, look for their tunban clothing.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In early stages (pre-alpha) of the game, this faction was named the Taliban, a real-life radical Islamic political movement and recognized-terrorist group that is currently waging war against the country of Afghanistan. It was renamed the Insurgents later on in the game.
  • The history behind the Insurgents is inspired after many factions in the Middle East and Southern Asia, angered at the domestic interference caused by foreign nations such as the United States and referring it to "imperialism", and would fight them to preserve their culture of what life was like before.

Planned changes[edit | edit source]

  • Current player models are placeholders, and will be replaced with more generic models.[1]
