Talk:Thermal Shok Launcher
Glitchy TSL Behaviour in CE
From time-to-time I've noticed that if an alien armed with a TSL makes a reaction shot it will often fire as if it were auto-fire ie: 3 shots. The weird thing is that only the 1st shot appears to be a shok bomb, the other two have the same appearance and firing sound, but thier explosion anim. and sounds are from the 'small' explosives like GC HE rounds. They also seem to do no damage at all.
I've seen this oddness many times from aliens with TSLs, but never from my troops. Its not really a serious thing as it doesn't make any real difference to how things play out, but its definatley a 'WTF?' moment.

- By any chance, was the alien reaction shot taken at a range of 3 or less? -- Zaimoni 11:58, 4 May 2008 (CDT)
- Nay. The range was more like 15-ish, almost a whole screen. It was at the 1st stage of an Artefact Site from an Aquatard camping in the 'exit' room if that helps any... Tifi 13:21, 6 May 2008 (PDT)
