What started as a Project Reality mod for Battlefield 2 ended up as its own game after 6 years: Squad. The game was developed by the Canadian studio Offworld Industries. It is a realistic tactical first-person shooter, which is set in today’s modern times.

How can I find my SQUAD-server ingame?

In SQUAD there are two different server browsers. Here we explain the difference and how your server is visible in the different browsers.

Server browser

In order to display your server in this list, it is necessary to obtain a license key from the game developer. You have to apply for one here: https://master.joinsquad.com/serverlicense

As soon as your server application has been accepted, you can enter the licence key in the basic settings, save it and restart the server. Your server will now be displayed in the normal server browser. 

ImportantPlease make sure that you have at least two layers in the map selection


If you do not want to apply or your application for a license key was rejected, your server can still be displayed in the custom browser. 

ImportantPlease make sure that you have at least two layers in the map selection. If there are no players on your server, you must also select the filter “Show empty Servers”
