How To Organize Your Team
A common way to Organize a team is to have a Squad Leader, Fire Team Leaders, and Riflemen. Here
is an example of how a 9 man team might be Organized: A Squad Leader, 2 Fire Team Leaders, and 6
Riflemen. Each Fire Team leader would have 3 Rifleman
The Squad Leader
Your squad leader should have a lot of experience and knowledge. The squad leader’s objective is to
lead his team to victory. The squad leader will be constantly in contact with his two fire team leaders.
Because he must communicate with his fire team leaders so often, it’s a good idea for the squad leader
and the fire team leaders to have radios.
The Fire Team Leader
This is how things usually go. The squad leader will give the fire team leader a command and then
the fire team leader will direct the men in his charge to complete the command he received. You will
hardly ever see a fire team get split up. They are a unified team who’s goal is to fullfill the orders of
their squad leader. Fire team leaders also need airsoft experience and knowledge, but not as much as
the squad leader.
If it is your first time joining a team or you are new to airsoft, you are for sure going to be a rifleman.
Even if you have been playing airsoft for a very long time, you may still be a rifleman. It is the
rifleman’s job to listen and obey his squad leader and fire team leader. To be a good rifleman, you need
to be able to take commands and criticism from your leaders because they will likely know a lot more
about airsoft then you.
Without an Organized airsoft team, your chances of winning a game are severely hindered. But with a
team that is unified, you will be able dominate at airsoft.
