Hello 3rdID, I have been playing with the 3rdID for a little over 2 months. After completing many squad drills and operations, I still believe there is a lack of training in how to defuse and identify an IED. There have been many of times where we have been in the middle of a mission and the only thing that has stopped my fireteam/squad is an IED that no one knew about. I think that having trained and qualified people to deal with situations that call for an EOD expert.

Just throw rocks at it lol.

No but I think that’s something we can look into. This is something that’s going to be seen a lot in the coming missions and such.

Personally, I have always looked drills as more than hoping in and shooting something. Maybe instead of shooting something, other skills should be worked on so all are familiar such as the with the best way to approach and disarm IED's.
