We’ve all been there. Stuck in a squad with a squad leader who doesn’t issue orders. Maybe the squad leader doesn’t know about orders? Or maybe they just don’t care? But they should care because issuing and following orders is one of the easiest ways to rack-up some big points, benefiting the entire squad. If you’re not using orders, you’re missing out on a lot of easy points.

Plus, any squad who fully utilizes the order system has a very good chance of earning the Ace Squad ribbon at the end of the round, worth 500 points.
