So I just started playing XCOM 2 recently (I'm still on the Gatecrasher mission, no spoilers please!) But I've noticed a really annoying "feature" where I click on the "fire" icon and my solider immediately fires on one of the visible enemies - without giving me the chance to select my target, if multiple targets are visible.
So far it hasn't screwed me, as my men have always ended up shooting the target I intended to shoot at anyway, but it scares me to think they might one day shoot the wrong guy. (I did get screwed by a grenade throw though - my soldier ended up throwing the grenade off into the weeds without giving me a chance to position the blast radius over the enemies I actually wanted to hit.)
I haven't had much luck finding information on this "feature" or how to disable it online, although I did find this Reddit thread, which at least suggests it's a feature rather than a bug. I gather that there's a keyboard shortcut (by pressing "1" twice) that will do this for the enemy with the best chance of being hit. But this happens when I click (once) on the fire icon with the mouse (maybe it's registering two clicks really fast, by mistake?)
Does anybody have any information about this "quick shot" feature, or how to stop it from triggering? I'm okay with solutions that disable the feature entirely as well as those that would stop it from happening on mouse-clicks alone. I like taking my time to choose who I'll shoot at. =)
For the time being I'm training myself to use the number keys to select actions, as it's easier to ensure only one keypress that way. This may very well end up being a solution in itself, but I'm accustomed to using the mouse from XCOM: EU/EW, and I'd like to continue doing it that way.
PS: I'm not a "modder" by any means, but I'm comfortable enough with computers and such that I'm also willing to hear ideas that involve editing .ini files and such, if anyone knows a way to accomplish this goal by playing with those settings. Not my favourite solution, but acceptable for this purpose.
