Aim of this Wiki Project[edit | edit source]

Update the entire Squad Wiki to the current version v15 of Squad.

Updates to the CAF DLC is address here WP - CAF.

See all Release Versions.

Workflow[edit | edit source]

  1. If you find changelog line that do no have any effect on the wiki, move it from section #Not yet finished to section #No Wiki Change Necessary. Ideally, we do this clean-up process first to then focus on actual work for the wiki.
  2. From section #Not yet finished, pick a changelog line you want to work on. Update the wiki according to the changelog. Maybe more than one page will be affected by one changelog line - so you have to know the wiki pages to find all the places that might need updating. If unsure, ask Usgu. some suggestions where changelogs should go on the wiki have been added. Also, apply some thought how and where to best include the new information on the wiki.
  3. When you are done, move the changelog line to section #Already finished. Please also list the wiki pages you have updated for this changelog - this makes it easier for other editors to see what you have done.

Changelog[edit | edit source]

Not yet finished[edit | edit source]

Systems[edit | edit source]

  • Added an Infantry Tutorial orientated at teaching new players the basic ropes of Squad.
  • Added an Interface Tutorial that teaches the Deployment interface in a first-time event capacity.

Vehicle Gameplay[edit | edit source]

  • Added the BMP-2 Infantry Fighting Vehicle. This is a second-generation Russian IFV, succeeding the BMP-1 from the 1980s. The BMP-2 has a 3-man crew and can hold up to 7 passengers. It is armed with a 30mm auto-cannon firing AP or HE ammunition at a blistering 550 rounds per minute. It comes with a turret-mounted Konkurs ATGM for dealing with heavily armored threats. Additionally, it has a standard PKT 7.62mm coaxial machine gun and smoke grenade launchers for smokescreening.
  • Added the BMP-1 ZU-23 Anti-Air Variant. This variant basically replaces the turret on the BMP-1 with an external, manually operated ZU-23 Anti-Air Autocannon.
  • Made vehicle radial menu accessible even if the vehicle is not claimed by your squad or you’re not a crewman if the vehicle is on your team.
  • Enabled all unarmored vehicles (technicals, trucks etc) to receive indirect (AoE splash) fragmentation damage.


Deployables Gameplay[edit | edit source]

  • FOB Radios will disable spawning on HAB’s if the Radio has been damaged and its health has fallen below 75%.

User Interface[edit | edit source]

  • Re-Added Spawn Confirmation. This should reduce the chances of accidentally spawning in when you are trying to see the wait timers for each spawn location.
  • Added a global notification for when objectives are either met or lost. (E.g. Flag neutralizations, captures, cache objective destroyed, etc.)
  • Added a dynamic list of vehicles that are on the currently played map layer. The list is accessible as a button next to the map legends.
  • Added a Favorites filter in the Server Browser.
  • Added British Army, Insurgent, Russian Army, and Irregular Militia victory jingle.
  • Added 10 second delay before incap player can use Medic Callout button and increased the Medic Callout interval from every 5 seconds to every 30 seconds.
  • Improved the look of the Vehicle Repair Tooltip. If you have a Vehicle Repair Toolkit, the tooltip allows you to see how badly each individual component is damaged similar to the HUD when in a vehicle driver seat.
  • Grouped kit role request into its own sub-menu in the Vehicle Interaction Radial Menu.
  • Reordered Role variants to have Ironsight variants first, then Red-Dots then Optics.
  • Changed label on the Deployment Menu for Team Selection to “Teams / Game Mode Info”.
  • Changed magazine image to show up as grey as opposed to jet black when empty for visibility when in vehicles.

Maps[edit | edit source]

  • Substantially improved performance on Kohat Toi River Valley, Tallil Outskirts, and Gorodok maps. Other maps, including Skorpo and Yehorivka, are being optimized and will continue to receive improvements in upcoming releases.
  • Visually updated Gorodok and Yehorivka.
  • Improved collisions on Tallil’s residential buildings and improved performance.
  • Updated foliage and landscape on Gorodok for improved, blended appearance.
  • Fools Road lighting & foliage updated.
  • Fixed Sumari staging zones to prevent players from jumping over. Don’t be AWOL, squaddie.
  • Changed collision on traffic signs so they don’t stop vehicles anymore.
  • Kohat, Tallil, and Gorodok received substantial optimizations and some visual improvements to increase performance and to bring the visual quality of our maps up to our standards. This includes new assets replacing old ones, as well as some different methods being used on our landscapes.

Known Issues[edit | edit source]

  • ATGMs projectile desync for other players that are not gunner, however, what the gunner sees should be the true synced projectile.
  • Certain effects do not blend with fog on some layers.

Known Issues

  • Occasionally the landscape renderer will not load correctly resulting in black foliage on a map. A fix is being investigated.
  • Client crash on map switch.

  • Occasionally a player will not spawn at Rally Point when numerous players are spawning in at the same time.
  • Occasionally client crashes in various circumstances: we’re still looking into the crash reports. Detailed crash reports help us fix this and we appreciate those that have filled out and sent crash reports.

  • Occasionally Self-bandaging fails. Actively investigating the cause.
