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 am the only sniper who actually tries to be concealed so a spotter usually isn't an option for me. If I am scouting then I wouldn't be using a spotter anyway. If I am moving to take out specific targets then would want to use a spotter because we would be better prepared for anything that might happen.
If one of the rambo wannabes ever had enough willpower not to run around screaming shooting at nothing then trust me I would have trained one long ago.
Nerf I would hope all fields have MEDs (minimum engagement distance). If yours doesn't then stop going to that field. Also, make an into post.
We really need to start demanding that they let qualified players carry a sniper rifle without wasting another player's day.
If we did that I'd be the only one with a sniper rifle at my field.
