What qualifies you for it and what does it do?

i don't think the squad leader spawning system is in the game, atleast for the beta... you can actively spawn on squad members.

I believe I heard that feature was removed (I could be wrong?).

I am curious as well to what benefits and "how" one becomes Squad Leader. It almost seems to reward it as one is kicking but and taking names.

I managed to get chosen for it lastnight but I couldnt find where it did anything.

Yeah I have had it pop up on my screen a few times saying I am the squad leader but I didn't see anything different on my screen as to what comes along with it. I don't know how I got chosen either?

maybe theres something special that you can call in or something

in the end game you can call uav's and artillery strikes as a squad leader, and your squad can only spawn on you, This is what they said a couple of days ago.. havn't seen anything in the beta yet, prollly cut out of it too.

I've been squad leader a bunch of times and I haven't seen any advantages of being one...it seems what they said about the perks of S.L. have been removed in the beta.

hate to break it to you guys but  im not that great of a player (first BF game ) and  i tend to get squad leader a few times a game ( when i was playing  i thought it was a same kind of thing  like deathstreaks were in COD )

Squad Leader is a good way to rack up a few points by instructing your squad to attack/defend the COMM stations. I was seeing 20 scores popping up all the time when I was SL.

Artillery strikes were last seen in 2006′s Battlefield 2142, where the Commander could call in an artillery strike anywhere on the map. Since there’s no Commander in Battlefield 3, DICE has instead trickled down many of the Commander features to the regular soldier: the UAV is now available to everyone (if UAV stations return), and there will be an unlockable UAV for the Engineer class.

Not only that, according to DICE’s Karl-Magnus Troedsson at the recent Eurogamer Expo, squad leader will have the ability to call in artillery strikes. This is in addition to the unlockable mortar strike, which is available to everyone playing the Engineer class.

While we were disappointed with the lack of a Commander in Battlefield 3, it’s good to see DICE keep many of the assets and spread them out to the squad level.

So it sounds like it will be a squad leader function now
