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:

I think spotters are unnecessary to require, as they are on almost every venue here. It really chaps my ass to have to have one, especially cause I run with a squad anyway but do not exactly have a crew.

Plus, being anti-social tends to mean no one wants to follow me around the field all day waiting for me to shoot people; probably true for sociable people too.

But, certainly eyes and direct intel is a great thing to have, but I do not think it needs to be done by a dedicated man.
We really need to start demanding that they let qualified players carry a sniper rifle without wasting another player's day.
It is made of pure evil! Shoot the baby first.

Anyway, I realised who really needs spotters: Machine Gunners. I have met but one who knew how to handle his MG properly and use it for the good of his crew, not the funny feeling in his pants. How can he even go prone like that?
