Since I little while I am noticing some AI issues when playing a custom mission in AO.
The first issue is that when I let my men overwatch a position (sniper rifles) some or all of them choose to use the side arm and try to take out enemes with a pistol from 500 meter range...while they have a sniper rifle for long range shots. It can't be right that the AI prefers to use a pistol when they carry a long range rifle or any other rifle.
The second issue is that the team mates sometimes become unresponsive to my commands after they switched to the side arm when proned. Well they do listen, but they can not move. I found out by switching to the AI units that they were holding the side arm. When I use the weapon switch drop down I saw the side arm as selectable while he was already holding the side arm in his hands. After manually switching all the weapons of the AI to rifles (dropdown correctly displayed) they could move again and were acting on my commands again. In the mission I was playing I had to switch to my AI units every 10 minutes and fix the side arm issue so that they could move again.
Anyone else experienced these problems? If yes, has the bug been reported yet?
