The following situation can be seen in the demo missions:
- AI spots a target
- AI reveal target as infantry treat
- AI engages and kills threat
- AI switches to combat behavior
- AI turns 360° to move into a (known?) cover
When an AI switches to combat behavior, it should evaluate the situation first
to be able to judge what is best in the situation.
This normally means to fire back into the direction of the (known/last) threat,
at least for a second or two, then decided to either:
- push on (continue in the same direction)
- lay down/crouch (to be able to return fire)
- move into cover
Right now it seems a 100% decision to immediately move into cover.
In most cases this means moving backwards.
- Run the attached demo missions in the editor
- Watch the AI engage and kill the first threat
- Notice that after killing the first threat and now being in danger mode it turns backwards / his back to the direction the enemy came from with potential more incoming from there

"This normally means to fire back into the direction of the (known/last) threat, at least for a second or two..."
This scares me. I remember when we proposed that AI should be much faster in running into cover and not standing still and looking around while fired at. I am afraid of complications that could raise from this request.
However I definitely agree that this is a problem:
"Notice that after killing the first threat and now being in danger mode it turns backwards / his back to the direction the enemy came from with potential more incoming from there"
