I believe it means "follow my lead".

My question is out of a movie call "The white house down", which tells a hero saves the U.S. president's life from an emergency.A dialogue in this movie makes me confused.
A man said: " Diamond formation, stay low, stay close, shoot first, got it? on me."
I just can't understand the wording "on me", Is it a too Spoken English expression and the man in the moive
omit sth in his saying? Just want to know "what on that man"
Thanks a lot!
Possibly — or 'on my command'.

stay low, stay close, shoot first......
Does it mean if you want to shoot the aim accuratily, please follow my instruction?
No. They are multiple orders given in quick succession, because of the danger.
"stay low" = "Do not stand up, because you will get shot".
"stay close" = "Do not disperse, or we will lose contact with each other and you will make yourself an easy target".
"shoot first" = "Don't let them shoot you, shoot them first".
(BrE first language speaker.)
You sometimes hear "shoot first, ask questions later."
