Then we will fight in the shade!

Area firing in the general direction of contacts is often enough to get suppression and cause casualties.

This doesn't mean you need LOS to the target either. If a target is 100 to 120m away and your LOS is well short of this you still have excellent results simply shooting in that direction even if you are 70m short of your actual target.

Your hail of bullets travel a lot further than you eyes can see.

Clearing a forest is extremely ammunition intensive and you will take casualties.

Yep, I do that, hm, not often, but frequently. I would not call the results excellent, but normally the stray fire convinces the pixel troops to keep their heads down.

Results in CM1 were much better. ;)

Hehehe, you are right. There’s a very thin line in between. But I think you know what I mean.🤔

There is a famous satirical syllogism that ends, "...boredom will ensue seldom more often than frequently." I always loved that one.
