"This tactic is important for 2 reasons. 1. Aliens get a free move when they are seen and if the alien moves into view of a soldier that has already been put on overwatch they cannot use that turn to fire."

I am quite sure I have seen my soldier set already on overwatch shooting aliens spot by another soldier, in aliens' extra turn. Can someone else confirm this, please?

This is true. The issue is with multiple soldiers on overwatch might all waste it on the same unit instead of each shooting at a different target. Mavoc 14:37, 15 October 2012 (EDT)
That only happens when you have a Sniper with the Squad Sight perk on Overwatch. He'll essentially fire at any alien that your soldiers see as long as he has a clear line of target. Hobbes 15:49, 15 October 2012 (EDT)
Firing on overwatch against off-turn movement even without squadsight is definitely possible, as is multiple units shooting at one movement. --(name here) 12:41, 16 November 2012 (EST)
