comment Enemies are Exploding on my Soldiers
On missing my guess (purely from a game mechanics theory point of view, I have no idea about this game) is that if a soldier is on the blast radius (ie half in and half out) it might make a roll to determine whether it hits or not. Its the only thing I can think of.

comment How do I get weapon mods?
I was just thinking I'd recently grabbed oceania and not seen this! :) Thanks for the tips. Will have to go pick up vulture at my earliest opportunity.

I suspect the downvoter won't be back to read this comment but I'm curious as to why...

comment How can I keep XCOM 2 loading in the background?
I don't run in windowed mode (at least I dont' think so - I haven't changed from default) but I find that if I tab out to read email and such like then often when I come back it will be giving me the press button to continue suggesting it finished loading while not having focus. Might be different if running full screen than windowed. It may also be that mission briefing pausing doesn't mean loading is paused so worth running some experiments (eg tab out and leave it for 10 minutes or more and see if it does in fact finish).

comment Can turrets really be hacked permanently?
I ran into exactly this last night. I thought I'd seen something saying turrets were infinite duration but thought maybe I'd imagined it when they started shooting at me again. Thanks for the detailed answer!

comment What experimental grenades and ammo types are available?
Cool. Cheers. Not sure what I think of that. I'm surprised that once you've developed one you don't get the option to choose that specific one. Seems strange that if you've got an acid already that you can't just say "do the same thing again, I want more of those".

comment What experimental grenades and ammo types are available?
Ah. So I developed experimental grenade and got an acid grenade - I assumed that experimental grenade = gas grenade. Does that mean each time I develop it I'll get a different grenade or will it just choose one randomly (so I might get another acid)?

comment Weapon class and character subclass choices
Not sure why this was closed. It seems a very precise easily answerable question...

comment Can you spot enemies in Star Wars: Battlefront
Not sure about the downvoters but it might be worth explaining what you mean by "spotting". I think you probably mean being able to ID an enemy such that others on your team can know where they are too but its not explained.

comment Why are bosses called 'bosses'?
For reference the dnd wiki page says "dnd is notable for being the first interactive game to feature what would later be referred to as bosses" implying that this was definitely not the origin of the term "boss" to refer to bosses. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dnd_(video_game) and thus this isn't actually a valid answer to why they are called that.

Yeah, I'd noticed that and so feared that would be the case. :( I was just hoping there was something else out there but it looks like this is the best I'll get. :(

comment What is the benefit of using V.A.T.S.?
I'm surprised that you haven't included "Aim assist" since that seems like the primary reason to use VATS to me. I have a friend who just doesn't do FPS. Its actually quite funny watching her try to unload an entire clip trying to kill a radroach and failing. She could not really play the game without VATS doing most of the shooting for her. I appreciate your comment on having not included things covered in answers but I think this really needs that one at least. The points you have covered seem really to be bonuses rather than the core reason for it.

comment How many permanent SPECIAL points are available in Fallout 4?
Why level 44? If you need 42 level ups wouldn't that point to level 43? Or can you only start getting stat points when you reach level 3?

comment Destiny expansions 1 and 2 and taken king
This is a bit misleading because the codes actual download a very small file and not the expansion itself. The base game contains all the necessary data and all you need is an appropriate licence. On my xb1 the two downloads for the expansions were about 10 meg each.

comment How do I get the Crota and Oryx masks?
@Iszi: consider though that if there is a one in a million chance of you not having got either of those two masks (number totally made up) then that means that one in every million destiny players is going to have that problem. Sure, it might be improbable but with the number of players it is likely that somebody has the problem and it is equally likely to be you than anybody else. The thing with RNG is that if you only have a sample size of 1 then you can't say much. I have I think five masks and one of them is oryx so a sample size of two immediately changes the perception.
