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:

IMO, airsoft doesn't really have a need for one. Although, I like working with another sniper in a two man sniper team. As long as he actually knows what he is doing. I was in the Infantry and was the DM, and I prefer working with an ex-infantrymen. Or someone who is serious about being a true sniper. (Knowing you dont HAVE to shoot just because you see an enemy.)
