Both the 2 by 2 cover and the gladiator formations are used for moving from one point to another safely and both require at least 4 people.

First of all we have 2 by 2 cover formation which is slower than the Gladiator formation but it is safer. in the 2 by 2 cover formation 2 men from the squad move from one position about 10 feet while the other 2 cover them and then the 2 that just moved turn around and cover the other 2 while they mover to the first 2's position and then the first 2 move again while the others cover them and then the other 2 come while the first to cover them and so on until you get to your position.

Second we have the gladiator formation which requires less cover than the 2 by 2 but is much faster, in the gladiator formation you hav one person watching the north, one watching the south, one watching the west and one watching the east and your sqaud moves from one position to another in an ordely fashion while going the same speed and facing the direction that you are assigned even if it it means walking backwards and trusting your commrade thats watching the north. this tactic is used very often by special forces and if you ever watch the movie black hawk down u will see the delta force guys using this tactic. it is often used when their isnt much cover and your in a hostile and unmarked area without much intil and an enemy could come from any direction

If u ever here the 501 clan say to use these tactics u now know how to use them they are often used only when there is an overwhelming enemy force and not many left on your team.

Use these tactice to your advantage and message me or reply with comments or questions.

Pastor, if you wanted it added, why didnt you? And if you copy and paste onto your site, give credit. Also, the cover formation is commonly shortened to leapfrogging. Its extremely useful even if not for all the time, its great when going towards a door that is likely defended. Youll hear me on the mic saying cover this area, which is essentialy the same thing, but instead suppressing fire. Ill add a forum to that measure now.
