When im playing alot of the time in random squads i dont have many people talking unless its a team work squad. Anyway, usally when im playing in these squads when there using smgs, sometimes rifles, squad mates run out of ammo. Alot of the time there sticking around in a group and in urban areas covering me. It irritates me that when im advancing and my squad mates run out of ammo i have no idea they have so all of a sudden im not covered. My sudjestion is that maybe when somebody runs out of ammo for a weapon there could be a automatic voice yelling "Im out of ammo!" or somthing like that. It would help in squads that dont communicate much. (really i think people should learn to use smgs in 3-5 round bursts instead of using 20 rounds in 1 go) :P
Great idea, I'd be hunting for enemy "out of ammo" yells and constantly making them no yell any more.
Also, voice actors limitations.
It would be quite pointless to have a voice command like that, partly because it gives you away, but mostly because it is exceedingly rare to run out of ammo in situations where your teammates would hear it. Think about it, you can only realisticly run out of ammo when sneaking about or hidden (best done alone). In normal combat, you're either tripping over ammo crates or being riddled with bullets every 30secs.

Maybe a voluntary voice command?
The M1 Garand made a loud 'ping' sound when it ran out of bullets, and I heard stories about soldiers who would throw their empty magazines on the ground to make a fake ping. The enemy would think the American is out of ammo, and break cover in order to shoot him, only to be shot in return. Perhaps this could be a form of that?
I do enjoy being sneaky in FH. That anti-basecamp mod annoyed me sometimes because it limited my sneaking area.
i was thinking of a automatic voice command. In BF2 when ever you run completly out of ammo you hear that terrifying empty magizine "click" when your out of ammo. i was thinking you could replace that wiith somebody yelling "im out of ammo!" It may seem like a waste of time but it would help when your in squads that dont communicate. Also i actually do run out of ammo often seeing as i have a trigger finger :P plus i survive alot of things. :P
I didn't make it!
Automatic Command.. Yes
Voluntary Command.. No.. Why? People will spam it.. alot.. and thats stupid.
