A hold fire button would be great to have.
When you click the unit you can click on the weapons to stop specific weapons or all the weapons firing. I tend todo this on recon that can make a mess of themselves by trying to take on too many things when they are meant to be hidden
Yeah but there was a thread about this - the problem is to get your units to hold fire by the activation/de-activation method there are two major
1. You have to go through each squad individually and disable every weapon in each of them. Fiddly, time-consuming and ineffective given by the time you're done doing one or two squads, the other 3 have probably fired a salvo off. A hold-fire button would allow one to toggle all fire off for an entire group of selected squads of units.
2. Disabling the weapons currently resets their aim and reload. For ambushes, people have voiced the wish to be able to instruct/allow their units to load and steady their aim on target and hold fire until a certain range before giving the order to open fire. As it stands, your units have to re-load and re-aim their weapons from scratch when you re-enable them, which is less-than-practical for ambushes.
