More takiban in the houses would help. With this 1.60 I saw a takiban take cover in a house.
Maybe it is my military training, but standoff firepower from high ground is the only thing I do.
I think the issue maybe the game itself. When ever you shoot at a squad/group of AI they just automatically start making their way toward you. Then you just keep picking them off as they get closer. The game has always been this way. So when I roll up to a town I take a couple of shots at group to start them coming at me. Take them out and then start with the next group. So on and so on.
