I would like to know why people seem to go round harping on about auto shooting things or not auto shooting things. Does it make a difference which you choose, except for TUs and acc?

Also, is there a reason for auto shots, they are more TUs for less Acc? :wacko:

ok now..this is how i did it back in the day... if a damn alien is right in front of you... and you got the TUs, go Auto...obviously that would give a pretty damn good chance to get in a pretty damn good hits in...

other than that reason, i did it on the rifles if i was in a jam...i got prety damn lucky a lot of the times....so its really personal preference to use it or not...

Look at it this way: fire one snapshot with, say 30% hit chance, or fire three autoshots with, say 20% hit chance. with the first you have 30% chance to hit, but with the second you have three times 20% chance to hit, which totals out as more (at a cost of more TU's and ammo)

So what is the point? Snap shots (and very occassionally aimed shots) are SO much better?!

you havent read what we typed....

lets say we got an alien right in front of me...

soldier : 50 TUS
equipped: standard rifle
DMG:25
Alien HP with no armor: 100
aimed shot: 30 tus 90% acc 1 ammo
snap shot cost: 15 60% acc 1 ammo
auto shot: 20 20% acc 3 ammo

aimed x 1= 30 TUs = 25 dmg ALIEN= 75 HP (gonna be hurting and rdy to kill you)
snap x 3= 45 TUs = 75 dmg ALIEN= 25 HP (gonna be hurting more but rdy to kill you nonetheless)
auto x 2= 40 TUs = 150 dmg ALIEN= DEAD (if they all hit of course which i dont see why they wouldnt)

this is a pretty damn crappy table but i hope you get the point..

You said it yourself, snap shots take LESS Tus and are MORE accurate. I cannot see a point in them!

But, last time I counted, he still had 10 fingers!

...Ohhh.... :blink:
Posted Image Haha! I'm now the Supreme Commander of X-COM. Time to kiss Earth goodbye.

My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.
