Squad Wiki

This is a list of all playable factions available in Squad. Most factions in-game are based on real-world armed forces; while a select few are either an amalgamation (such as Middle Eastern Alliance) or a generic representation of real-world para-military groups (such as Insurgents and Irregular Militia).

Playable factions determine the available Weapons and Vehicles to that team in a game of Squad. Some factions also determine the types of Maps they deploy on; e.g., Middle Eastern Alliance and Insurgents are most commonly seen on Middle Eastern and South Asian maps.
