Hit and Run: shoot without getting shot back
« on: June 01, 2010, 01:23:28 am »
Considering the lack of save during combat and your early inital weakness bad accuracy, the high accuracy of the aliens and that being shot is a very bad thing

i found the best tactic early on with my snipers and long range weapons is to shoot and not get shot back
I do this by hiding behind a building, rock or other solid defence step out, kneel  fire a snap shot preferbly at an alien not looking at me
( aimed shot take too much tv)
stand up and duck back into cover

while i could stay out and fired mutiple snap shot or 1 aimed shot if i miss i'm open to being shot

although the success of this tactic will depend on the Reaction fire of the alien and having something to hide behind

you can call this tactic cowardly but the aliens outnumber me 10,000 to 1 and the battlefields are littered with bones of 'brave' men

Not cowardly at all. This is generally the most used tactic of the aliens (especially if you just blindly advance towards them).

It's either this or reaction fire advancing, generally. Nothing wrong with either.

Reaction fire advancing? Is that like lea frogging with reaction points?
