Hmmm, it appears that this stormtrooper is shooting another one in the back:

I thought they weren't supposed to do that?:D

i think it's just be the angle of the shot

more likely i'd think its taking into consideration kyle's movement and shooting where he's going to be, but the angle of the camera shot makes it look like he's shooting he other in the back


on the other hand, maybe the leader thinks that particular troop has been rowdy lately and that he needs to be taught a lesson ;)

It really is hard to tell where he is aiming his blaster. Looks to me like he is shooting to the others left, where Kyle looks to be moving to.

It's just an accurate representation of stormtrooper marksmanship, that's all. :)

"Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise..." Hah! :D

The Stormtroopers have pretty good aim considering they hold their blasters by their waist.

Nope, if you look more closely that closeup, you can see a glimpse of red blaster bolt(just between helmet and shoulder pad), but looks like it will pass on the right side(from our point of view) of that Stormtrooper's pelvis. So, only Stormtroopers can be so precise... after all. :trooper:

Maybe he is shooting a fly or a bug off the guy in front of him eh?

Or maybe it is on "easy" difficulty level and the AI isn't as good?

you also have to consider that those stormtroopers are moving, and kyle is moving, and they're all focused on one thing, killing kyle...and a stormtrooper could have a perfect shot, and one of his comrades dodges Kyle's saber, and by doing so, gets shot.

like gunner said, Friendly Fire happens..

between members of the same squad, i guess that shooting each other in the back isn't that clever... but they are in a confined space... so accidents happen.

maybe they are US military stormtroopers... ;)

on the other hand... i hope you CAN get enemies to shoot each other... half the fun in doom and quake was maneuvering the enemies into a full on battle with each other, while I just laughed... :D

Ok, let us move this picture to a 2d picture right here. X=stormtrooper O= officer, and K= Kyle

Think of it like that. He is shooting at where he WAS, not where he is.
