  1. Squad benefits from a higher clock rate.
  2. Expect Squad v7 (2023) to take up at least 6 GB of free RAM.
  3. Squad supports Nvidia DLSS (for Nvidia GPUs only) and AMD FSR2 (for all GPU brands). If you are going for a low-end GPU, at least consider one that supports these scaling methods.
  4. Squad 7.0.1 (2023) actually takes up 78.2 GB.

Community recommendations[ | ]

  • Audio output: If you want to hear where sounds are coming from, don't use simple stereo or mono speakers. The best choice is a pair of headphones (either a giant headset or cheap tiny earbuds will do), with spatial sound enabled on your Windows computer. You can use Windows Sonic for Headphones (comes for free with Windows), though Dolby Atmos for Headphones ($10 in the Windows Store) allegedly works better. Some headphones also come with their own 5.1/7.1 emulation software; those will work too.[2]

"Squad SDK" System Requirements[ | ]

With lots and lots of content in the Squad SDK already, it is recommended to have at least 16 GB of RAM on your system to work with the Squad SDK. Even with 16 GB of RAM, the lower your specs the slower the SDK will take to load.

If you're interested in contributing to Squad (create models, maps, ...), you can download the Squad SDK for free via the Epic Games-launcher.

For further information on system requirements and how to install the Squad SDK, see the Squad SDK page.

Remarks on Linux and Mac[ | ]

Linux and Mac operating systems are not supported at the moment.

  • The game engine powering Squad, Unreal Engine 4, supports Linux and Mac.
  • The Easy Anti-Cheat system used by Squad supports Linux, but not Mac.

Hence, it might be possible that these two platforms will be supported in the future.
