The vast majority of bullets fired never hit their target. Instead, most fire is intended to keep the enemy's heads down, to prevent them from firing back. Suppressive fire is a small arms tactics in which a fire element, often consisting of soldiers with automatic weapons, lay down a blanket of fire on an enemy position, with the intent of preventing them from moving or returning fire.

Units firing at suppressed or pinned targets will only deal 60% of their normal damage values, unless they possess the accurate trait.
