    Squad themes

      I love the new idea of squads and designing your own little attack pattern. Given the fact that they can be given specific roles with names it brings to question guys, what have you done with your squad in terms of themes. Mine squad theme was based around Band of brothers so I named my squad members after some real heroes.

       

      Squad-mate 1 (Captain **** Winters) - Winters- Assault

      Squad-mate 2 (Shifty Powers) - Shifty- Sniper/Marksman

      Squad-mate 3 (Bill Guarnere) - Guarnere- Sub Machine Gunner

      Squad-mate 4 (Babe Heffron) - Babe- Heavy Machine Gun

       

      I still need to finish up but any ideas will help

          Mines are all named after characters from The Simpsons, incuding Dr Nick. It's all a bit of fun after all

            I also like the whole squads concept, one of the things IW definitely got right with this CoD. I'm a big Hunter S. Thompson fan so mine are all named after characters from HST's books. (My gamer tag is RaoulNuke a la Raoul Duke from Fear & Loathing).

             

            My guys are:

             

            Raoul Duke: All around set up. A knife only class, a couple SMG set-ups, an assault class, marksman class, and a sniper class

             

            Paul Kemp (from Rum Diary): This is my stealth squad member. Silenced weapons, stealthy perks, etc.

             

            Dr. Thompson: Just unlocked this guy, thinking about making him a long range squad member: ARs, Marksmans, Snipers.

             

            Once I unlock more members I'm thinking about making it:

             

            1) All around setup: smgs, ars, snipers, shottys, everything in one member

            2) knife only variations

            3) smg/run&gun setup

            4) stealth setup: ars and smgs

            5) assault variations maybe a couple marksman rifles

             

            Then ill probably do a couple by game mode: dom squad member, hardcore member, blitz member, so on

                I think I've decided to continue with my Band of Brothers Squad to finish I'm adding another sub machine gunner (Malarkey) and possibly adding a female member now im notsexist by far I just don't seem it to be practical after reading this article. If anyone is up for a squad v squad add my gamertag (LuisJTM)http://www.reddit.com/r/Military/comments/1rcfte/female_raf_recruits_get_100000_ compensation_each/

                    This is going to be argumentative: I don't understand what a current day headline has to do with your using a WWII squad naming theme. And yes, you are being sexist by saying you don't want a female name because women today are making a fuss.

                     

                    Women were in resistance cells throughout Europe during WWII. Current events doesn't change how ballsy people were in WWII.

                        I dun goofed on that one i suppose. I only meant that in the terms when women back in WWII women WERE ballsy and now they are just complaining. What i meant was i would keep my squad WWII instead of changing it to a more modern Squad theme, my bad guys.

                      Mine was named for some of the old alliance for the Northmen in the Game of Thrones- geeks out there might get it.  Asha Greyjoy was my girlie because she is a tough mother$%@&%$, Greatjon, Stark (not sure which), Bolton just because he is a cruel sick bastard, Lord Beric and a couple of other colorful characters.  Hated the game but had fun with the Squad stuff.

                              My first squad memeber is basically a sniper so I've named him after Zer0 from BL2.  I'll be picking a favourite character from a particular game that matches their style.
