The Commo Rose (also known as "radial menu") is a feature in the Insurgency series that allows teammates to spot enemies and to communicate with one another without the need for a microphone.
In Insurgency, the Commo Rose can be brought up by pressing thekey, by default. The Squad Leader and Squad Members have different commo roses that vary in function.
The August 22, 2014 update "added anti-spam measures against radial commands."
The Squad Leader's commo rose is able to send out commands and set specific objectives as places to either attack or defend. "Watch Area" and "Move" will issue directional commands for a general area over voice and through the chat, and will also show the exact direction as an arrow on the compass.
A Squad Member's commo rose is designed to be used to respond to orders from the Squad Leader and also to communicate with other members of the squad to coordinate attacks.
- Floating markers(Enemy spotted, Move to, etc) were replaced in the Embassy update to Compass markers.
