Gold-rank-icon.png POV (Point of View) Camera

The POV camera shows the point of view from an individual unit.

When the POV camera is first enabled with nothing selected it will:

  • auto select and track commander for players
  • auto select and track all commanders for always spectators

The POV camera uses tracking groups to switch to another unit if the current unit dies.
