I totally just got outplayed by the hecu soldiers. see screenshot below:

Basically, I was camping in that garage and waiting for the soldiers to come in so I can feed them my m3 shotgun. Took out 2 guys and then these two other guys, they both rushed into the garage together and one of them ran behind me and I tried to shoot him but I didn't manage to kill him. So then he, without stopping to shoot at me, ran back out of the garage for some reason. Then I noticed a grenade on the floor that the other guy dropped while I was distracted.

All in all, it really depends on the map design to bring out the 'intelligence' of these guys. Even though everyone knows that these guys are supposed to be really smart (like in FEAR) these maps and most mods dont provide for it. Just check out these shots below:

The glock is too OP, and these guys simply don't work too well at long range

(One monsterclip is all it would have taken to prevent this catastrophe)

It is rather appalling how many maps potentially look great but are ruined because people slap in monsters with no additional setup. Run-n-gun shooters or cover shooters depend entirely on the AI keeping the repetitive gameplay interesting.

What mod is that on the last screenshot?

black guard or black security, I think. It's a pretty long one

But clearly the hands are white. False advertising.

I don't recognize the maps from the last 2 screenshots. But the first one is c2a5... Was it b? All I know it's the one right after the cliffside area.
