Hi, this is Robert Stewart, with hill13.com.
The next thing we’re going to talk about is a squad on the move, and how you should move,
and that is the wedge formation. What the wedge formation does for you is it increases
the number of available shooting lanes you have at any one time, and hopefully it prevents
you from walking like ducks into an ambush where you’re on a straight line, and therefore,
much easier to be picked off. When we look at the board, what you see here is a green
squad. Here are our team members here, and their direction of travel is in this direction.
Their objective is over here somewhere. If you’ll notice the way they’re moving, they’re
in a, they form a triangle. This wedge; this is our point man here. He’s always on the
front end, and he’s always moving to and checking to see what’s going on out here. His two supporting
team members have different shooting lanes at almost any moment, compared to the point
man. What this allows is it gives you a greater range of firepower, a number of extra ways
to support one another. Perhaps there’s a player here that’s firing on your position.
Rather than being in a straight line, and having only really one effective field of
fire or shooting lane, you have two different positions from which you can shut him down.
The key here is that as you’re moving across the field is to try to maintain a strong sense
of where your, your, your squad members are at in relation to you, and try to always remember
to try to keep looking forward, and looking left and right for new shooting lanes as they
