i could think of a smoke type that protects from psi attacks but also lowers reaction, strength and stuff
this sort of smoke could appear if you use IC ammo on some farm tile or in flats during a terror mission :)

It's about the Iron Rule #2: Always end your movement in cover. If there is no cover, create it.

But truth be told, I only use smoke grenades when the mission is tough... and use them heavily in the most difficult ones. Too bad they don't protect from Psi :)

In situations where, for example, a unit is in the line of fire of an enemy without enough time units to move to cover (pretty much guaranteeing he's going to get fired upon), you can toss smoke and it will more than likely save your soldier's life.
