Summary0002801: AI play "weapon" bark when shot by arrow
DescriptionI was watching a friend play a mission tonight, and he was sniping at an AI from the top of a wall. The AI couldn't see him, and every time he got shot by an arrow, he kept saying, "What's a weapon doing around here?" It sounded ridiculous.

I've heard AI react to arrows with weapon barks while being shot at, but I thought it was because I was set to notarget. Apparently not.

This is quite goofy and immersion breaking when it happens.
TagsNo tags attached.

I think that AI who are being shot at should not make ANY barks about other stimulus. If you're taking fire from an unknown sniper, you're not going to be commenting about weapons, or missing items, or even a body. You're going to be looking for who is shooting at you and/or taking cover.

Perhaps some kind of timer could track how long it's been since an AI was hurt?

Remove the projectile_result for an arrow that isn’t going to stick into the AI (not allowed when he’s alive). This was sending a “suspicious” stim to nearby AI.

Raise the AI’s alert level. This was being done by the projectile_result stim, but that was the wrong way to do it. Now that the correct way is being used (it was already there, but wasn’t being used for arrows), the AI has a good chance of turning toward the player and starting his search halfway to the player.

The alert level is set so that all other alerts other than spotting an enemy will be ignored until the alert level comes down. Audio alerts weren’t following this rule, but they are now.
