Hi guys. i am wondering if you guys know any Overwatch squad names?? If you do please post below.

Thanks Bam

Well, as far as I've noticed, there are no squad designations in HL2, maybe because I'm dumb :) However, I've heard CP squads being addressed to as "X-Ray", so this leads to speculation that they're using NATO phonetic alphabet. X-Ray 988.01 16:15, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
I've never made anything out in-game but I'm pretty sure Overwatch squads use designations as I remember reading some in the script files of the game once, maybe I'll look into it again. --MattyDienhoff 20:20, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Update: I just got around to checking through the file, this is what I found in "/scripts/sentences.txt" in the CP section:

// unit names, remembered by speaker  (duplicated for metropolice and overwatch)
V_MYNAMEP0 defender 
V_MYNAMEP1 hero 
V_MYNAMEP2 jury 
V_MYNAMEP3 king 
V_MYNAMEP4 line 
V_MYNAMEP5 patrol 
V_MYNAMEP6 quick 
V_MYNAMEP7 roller 
V_MYNAMEP8 stick 
V_MYNAMEP10 union 
V_MYNAMEP11 victor 
V_MYNAMEP12 xray 
V_MYNAMEP13 yellow 
V_MYNAMEP14 vice

Unit numbers are also mentioned in the file, so it seems each squad of CP officers is named, and each member of that squad is referred to with a number, presumably with 1 as the leader. This was in the CP section of the file. Overwatch squads seem to use a different naming structure which I haven't been able to make sense of. Possibly, each squad is named, and each soldier within that squad is also named, but I'm not sure. Here's that part of the file for anyone who may be interested. --MattyDienhoff 07:48, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
