Suppression?
« on: June 06, 2018, 08:49:18 pm »
I noticed the UFOpaedia article for machine guns states that "They are quite heavy though and have limited use other than suppressive fire". As far as I know there is no such thing as suppressive fire even in OXCE+, so this feels a bit like misinformation. Perhaps this line should simply read "They are quite heavy though and have limited use".

That said though, I wonder what  suppressive fire in X-COM would look like? I'm thinking maybe a TU reduction for every projectile that passes within 1 tile of a unit, or maybe a penalty to Reactions for the turn, but without player feedback it doesn't seem too useful.

Some time ago I developed some potential suppressing mechanics for idle fun. I even made a thread.

Please continue any discussion there, to avoid thread duplication. ;) Hence I'm locking this one. (Please message me if you want it unlocked.)
