Spotters: useful or not?

Does anybody work with spotters for spotting targets and security or is there any need for them? Even if you don't work with one, what do you think on the subject? Im thinking that for a spotter to be useful at security he would need an AEG to lay down cover fire to allow for escape and evasion. However other than that the spotter can't do much because the sound of the electric AEG would give the team away. Also it makes concealed hides and stalking harder because there is two in the team. However having a second set of eyes could stop the team from accidently
coming right up on an enemy position the team didn't know was there. Please post a reply.:shrug:

Spotters at MILSIM games are a great help, where you have been given an objective or a target. However, in normal skirmishes spotters are unnecessary in my opinion. I like to have a friend with an AEG staying with me though to provide support when encountering multiple enemies who are shooting at me though, but he doesn't act as a spotter.

People communicating well over the radio is good enough for me!
I agree with Reaper's post. Working with another sniper can be really effective.
Haha Dulas, if you train him now by the time he's old enough he will be a fantastic spotter!
