Stupid sniper ai suiciding?

Post#1 » Wed May 24, 2017 7:01 am

I have been experimenting with using sharpshooters instead of heavies as my main damage dealers, but sometimes they break off from behind my screen and charge into the base and die.

It says that they prefer attacking heroes, does a deka count as a hero? It seems to be happening when there is an active deka in another part of the base.

Snipers prefer any moving target.

They go after dekas even when they are sitting still I think.

And anything that pops out of the SC.

They also don't have skins like the heavies :)

True, but i dont have all the heavy skins yet like yall do.

Also, red trashcans work much better on sharpshooters since they get to stay far enough behind the lines that turrets dont slaughter them all.

This game is easy and quick to play on a phone, but the "fire and forget" ai makes me miss age of empires, or c&c, or maybe trying out empire at war...

they go after dekas and any infantry (IDT/LAAT traps, SC troops)
but will ignore any mechs (i.e. not prioritise them over buildings)

therefore with snipers loadouts you have to lure and dispatch dekas first and also nuke LAAT/IDT units as son as they spawn.
