Enemies with pistols almost never shoot at me[message #348321] Mon, 16 January 2017 22:45 Go to next message

I'm starting a new game in 1.13 on Experienced, with almost all of the "new" systems but mostly default settings. (I'm using unstable, but I think the stable version behaves similarly).

So far in all of my fights (with pistols), I've set up and started shooting at maximum pistol range, and the enemy doesn't do much of anything in response. They all get into maximum pistol range, and repeatedly stand up, run around a bit, and crouch. They only rarely come into closer range, and when they do, they do so one by one (though, when they do, they'll stand and shoot and can be quite dangerous, if exposed).

I think that what they should do is either:
1) Circle around and use cover to approach, as a group (I do see individuals flanking a bit, but they never get close enough to fire on me)
2) Rush me all at once (this is rather brave of them, but they're all dying as it is anyways)
3) Settle into positions and snipe back at me in great numbers

I know I might be asking too much of some recruits and specialists, but as it is they're literally just dying.

Do others have this same experience? Is it something I can change with ini tweaks, or perhaps a bug with one of the new systems?

I can update that this was only the case for the first three or so fights (Drassen airport and patrols on the way). As soon as harder enemies started appearing, they were more aggressive with pistols -- still cautious but not passive. But some recruits in those fights, and most green militia, are still passive.

Another update: turns out the reason my militia wasn't doing anything was because they had no weapons! I equipped them all in Drassen Airport but then reassigned them to other sectors. It looks like they actually leave their equipment behind when they relocate, which I didn't expect. I will have to stock equipment in each sector separately.
