Callsigns are typically short (most are one or two syllables) and not easily confused for radio terminology; for example, Roger would not be used, nor would anything with the word “fire” or any letter from the signal alphabet. Common ways callsigns are received:
- as part of a team motif: Thor, Freya, and Odin; Deuce, Queen, Jack, and Ace
- according to role: A sniper might be Deadeye or Archer, a stealth operative Ghost or Shadow, a heavy weapons specialist Bruiser, Mama Bear, or Hammer
- by comrades, as nicknames in the real world: A risk-taker called Wildcard, a character of few words known as Monk, a Brit called Bulldog, a relatively young member called Acorn
A list of examples follows.
|Ace||All Day||All In||Android||Angel||Arcade||Archer||Athena||Atlas||Axle|
|Big Daddy||Big Momma||Bishop||Black Widow||Blitz||Blowtorch||Bonus||Bonzai||Boomer||Brick|
