Overwatch shot triggers on mind control

Post by LordYanaek » Mon May 15, 2017 4:56 pm

A sectoid mind controlled one of my soldiers while another one was on overwatch and the overwatching soldier immediately fired on the mind controlled one even thought this one didn't move or shoot (it just became mind controlled). I suppose it's not how it should work as the mind controlled soldier didn't get to act, it all occurred during the same alien turn in direct sequence.
No save unfortunately as i wanted to play that campaign with Ironman and i was too surprised to alt-f4 before my own turn :( I never saw this before. If it occurs again i'll try to have a save (unless it's working as intended).

Both were rookies so no special perk.

does the soldier has covering fire? It might be due to bad triggers for new covering fire.

No, as i said both the mind-controlled soldier and the overwatching soldier were rookies. It was actually my first post Gatecrasher mission so they had no overwatch perk or PCS at all.

I've been unable to reproduce this on a fresh gatecrasher where i consoled out every enemy and waited for the sectoid to mind control me so not sure what strange combination of events caused this. I'll make sure not to use Ironman so i can have saves in case something strange occurs again :?
