Naturalness arguments for weak-scale supersymmetry favour supersymmetric partners of the third generation quarks with masses close to those of their Standard Model counterparts. Real and virtual production of third generation squarks via decay of a gluino can be significant if the mass of the gluino does not exceed the TeV scale. Top or bottom squarks with masses less than a few hundred GeV can also give rise to direct pair production rates at the LHC that can be observed in the 8 TeV data sample recorded by the ATLAS detector. Moreover, many supersymmetric models feature neutralinos, charginos and even sleptons with masses less than a few hundred GeV so that they can be observed in the available data sample. The talk presents recent ATLAS results from searches for direct stop and sbottom pair production as well as pair production of charginos, neutralinos and sleptons.
