Shooting out of LOS against tracking info
« on: August 31, 2014, 20:01 »

When I find a power up that shows me where all the enemies are on the map, can/should that lessen the "shooting out of the LOS" penalty somehow?

Nope, the penalty stays in effect (same for Intuition2). Justified by the fact that you don't see the enemies, you just know where they are.

I know it stays in effect, I was just making the suggestion that it not (or be lessened somehow).  I know what kind of enemy I'm aiming at - even if I can't *see* it, I'd think I would have a better chance to hit it when I know *exactly* where it is... especially when it doesn't know about me yet and (theoretically) isn't actively trying to avoid my fire.  I'm just amazed (and a little frustrated, to be honest) at how often I seem to miss when firing at a known/mapped enemy just *one square* outside my line of sight.
