What is the Fastest way to issue orders to away teams

Recommended Posts

Before starting this topic I did search the board for this question/answer. I read thru the thread but the thread's final answer seems tedious and perhaps there is a better way, so feel free to burn me but I would prefer the experienced answer.

I put myself and 4 marines into the transporter.

We beam down planetside. Thru the TOM menu I cannot issue them orders unless I go to TACOPS and tell each one to escort me first. Is there a faster way to acocmplish this?

I put myself into the same AWAY team as 4 other marines and we deployed from the shuttle. I was suprised that being on the same away team did not have me able to issue them orders until I used TACOPS again. TOM said I could not until I did the escort steps again.

(I am also pretty sure that even though I was in the SC1 away team, deploying the away team did not take me also outside the shuttle, I had to manually exit myself...perhaps therein lies the issue?)

Now I would really like to get a SC1 max team of 12 together and go into hostile territoty. Surely I am missing a step that would make it so the second we touch ground I could deploy the away team and issue orders to my troops?? Please tell me I am a dope and missed something simple

I am particularly green at the ground operations side of things, but I believe the SC changed some of the formerly MP-only gestures to signals that would convey your orders to your troops when in FP mode with them. Check out the appendix materials on this one. I could be way wrong on this one. I think you may be able to issues orders to groups of units with the PLV, as well.

These are the things I'd look into until someone that knows a lot more about ground-pounding gives you a better answer.

I'm looking for Single player game advice.

Basically wondering if there is a way that when I deploy the away team, that 1: I am deployed with them at the same time, and 2: I can start issuing orders at that time without targeting them 1 by 1 or adding them to the PLV, seems like there is something I am missing.

If its not in the manual and not in the VCF, that should give your answer. As in, no, you can't do it. Why do you expect someone else to do the work (of reading those resources) for you?
