Fighting solo is tricky. But you'll learn and with time you'll be able to look at the map and know where friendlies will be. Pressing o will bring up the social menu and give you a list of outfit members online. On the left will be a squad option. There are always public squads to join but leadership is normally only to set waypoints but when learning something is better than nothing. You can filter the list to only show squads with outfit members in (the official organised squad's normally called pcg-1).
Alternatively, if there is only a few online try asking in outfit chat (/o) if anyone wants to roll in a tank or lib. Again, a squad of two-three is hard at times but with voice chat it can be great fun.
