    How can I predict the direction and arc of an Arcane Sentry?

    When fighting "Arcane Enchanted" enemies, I notice the little ball of energy a few seconds before it starts to fire. When it fires, it appears to fire energy in a line that travels through a 360 degree arc, and then it despawns.

    However, the direction it starts in matters - I can be standing right next to one for several seconds after it starts to arc, so long as I'm not directly in the line of fire. I might even be able to stand there for longer, if I'm on the side where it will hit last.

    Is there any way to determine which way the sentry will fire when it starts firing? Does it always travel in the same direction? (ie, clockwise or counter clockwise?)

I haven't tried it myself, but I can only theorize that it does what it says it does: When hit, enemy starts running in the opposite direction of the player for X seconds, after which it regains its desire to fight again. Doesn't this just prolong what could otherwise be a much quicker fight? Additionally, these enchanted weapons

  • In the original X-Com you could basically point your weapon any direction and fire it. You could shoot buildings, vegetation, and even your own men. If you had a strong enough weapon you could shoot through a wall and create an entry into a structure where there wasn't one before. You could also fire in the direction of enemies that you couldn't necessarily see, but which other squad members could see. The only weapon I've had so far that is free target is the rocket launcher. I'm sorely missing the ability to fire at will. I notice that plasma and laser weapons will destroy walls and cover
