And you don't really know WTF that actually means. One thing that many new players do not understand is how the mechanics of the Squad Leader work, even though the system itself is pretty basic. Being a Squad Leader can offer your squadmates and yourself HUGE bonuses to the XP you earn in a match, but ONLY if you use your ability. If you do not use it, you are literally wasting Experience Points for everyone and nobody likes that. Essentially, your function is all based on the 'Q' button. When you target an area with your Reticule/Aiming Dot and hold 'Q', the point will be marked on the Map and your squadmates will see an Indicator showing where you have ordered your squad to go. Should you target a Capture Point and hold 'Q', that point will be marked and your character will order the squad to attack/defend it. This area that you have marked essentially creates a "Bonus XP" aura for the area you have marked. All kills and other sundry actions done within this area will now earn Bonus XP for your squadmates, AND give you XP as your squad is following your orders. As an alternative, you can mark YOURSELF as a moving aura by hitting the buttons V, 3, 1 in order. This calls a Rally Point on yourself so your squad can converge on you, and the XP aura will move with you. This way you have a moving Bonus XP aura that goes with you, encouraging your squadmates to stick by your side. Being the squad leader gives you the ability to coordinate with your squadmates without ever actually having to type anything out or speak via the Voice Chat. It is HIGHLY useful, especially if you're the anti-social type. So if you find yourself as the Squad Leader, test out that 'Q' button and you'll see that Bonus XP just start rolling in. Good luck out there, and may Da WAAAAAGH! be with you!
