Star Wars Battlefront Wiki

Squad Commands is a feature that is present in Star Wars: Battlefront and Star Wars: Battlefront II. It allows the player to tell NPC teammates basic commands.

The default key in Battlefront II is F4 while highlighting a friendly unit

Commands (Battlefront II)[]

The Squad Commands in SWBFII are dependent on your Rank. Generals can command up to four NPCs, whereas a Private can only command one at a time. This ability seems reduced to a maximum of two in online multiplayer.

  • Get In - Any nearby NPC gets into player's current vehicle.
  • Get Out - NPC leaves vehicle almost instantly. May need to be repeated when driving a gunship to avoid the ally crashing the vehicle on the hangar walls.
  • Follow Me - Gets highlighted NPC to follow the player until death. They will stop following if the player enters a vehicle if there is no open position for the NPC to board.
  • Move Out - Instructs following NPC to leave the player's side.


  • Spread Out - The NPCs that are following the player will stop following or stop defending an assigned area.
  • Follow - The highlighted NPC will follow the player.
  • Defend - The nearby NPCs will try to defend the location.
  • At Ease - The nearby NPCs will revert to their usual AI planning.
  • Get In - A nearby NPC will enter the player's vehicle.
  • Get Out - The NPC(s) inside the vehicle will leave the player's vehicle.


  • When playing Hero Assault on Mos Eisley, the player will be discouraged by their team announcer (Imperial voice, regardless of team) when asking allies to follow them, but the command will work.
  • This also happens when the player tries to command allies when playing as the Hero unit in the regular modes, resulting in the NPCs ignoring the follow order, though theywill still automatically follow the hero if they’re carrying the flag.
