I prefer to split roles in squad and equip my CRC guys with teammates to do long-range fighting for them. Instead of wasting TU trying to snipe someone with pistol it's more viable to try and close range in my opinion.

Yeah, I mainly employ plasma blasters late game as reaction fire based protection for my snipers and riflemen. 8 TU's for a ball fire mode in reaction will take most things down with ease if they make a move on anyone.

Once encased plasma becomes plentiful, I use assault rifles for almost everyone, including CRC. For CRC (and even at longer ranges) I use smoke before firing, in groups of at least two. One throws smoke, the other fires = no reaction fire received.

I have plasma blades as a backup, but almost never have to use them.

I use laser rifles even late game as a training weapon. New recruits get a laser rifle because of its great accuracy, and once they are more experienced, they are granted an assault rifle. This serves another, more sinister purpose: I can see at first glance who are less experienced and therefore more expendable.
