30303 - Electro laser works wierd

If you shot with Eltro Laser something for no effect, and then you shot same target with lethal weapon (like plasma riffle) the target instead of getting killed - getting stunned.
Another thing about Electro Laser, it is very very low effective. Practically unusable.

This is not a bug. Something's HP dropped below it's stun level with the hit from the lethal weapon.

Ah thanks. But still, it's a little bit strange. I mean I never stuned anything with lethal weapons. Only if the target was hit by Electrolaser before.

I believe it was one of the UFO:After... games by Altar. But think of the health bar as fully green. You shoot it with a stunning weapon, it takes off a small bit of health, but adds grey, so your now @ say 50% grey, 40green 10red. 90% total health, but 50% stun. You then shoot with the lethal, taking off 45% health. The stun amount doesn't change. But now total health is 45%. And the bar is now solely gray and red. And that's how you brought the current health below the stun level, causing the stun.
