There is all sorts of gamesmanship associated with it though โ€“ where movement is one at a time, it was common to walk a squad of troops past the enemy, in the hope he would op-fire at them so you could then rush him with something else.

Yes, that is what I dislike about that sort of game mechanism: You fire at someone and they then get a free run through your arc of fire because you fired…

Yeah…

Your arc of fire hasn’t just suddenly disappeared because you fired a few rounds and you’re not going to suddenly stop firing and not shoot at close range because you already had a shot at them at long range.
