How is shooting objects that are out of sight to make your survivors stop shooting (even though the enemy is in range) an exploit?
If you do it in a fire fight over the whole map and you shoot at buildings, because a defender got suppression invulnerability its obviously fine.
If you do it to avoid taking more damage from defenders and to mess with the targeting AI it seems problematic to me.
Cant really go into detail here since I dont want to describe exploits pubilicly, but will PM you ingame with some thoughts on it.
This thread should mainly focus on manual reloading and that comment was just a side note....so please keep comments on that
