This irritates me immensely about team-based games where the rest of your team are computer controlled (and stupid)
I’m playing Fallout 3. When I encounter an enemy the FIRST THING MY NPC HELPER Paladin Steel (I think that’s her name) does, is move into my line of sight with the enemy. THEN she charges at the enemy and tries her very best to die.
Even if I strafe wildly to bring the enemy into view again, SHE STRAFES IN THE SAME DIRECTION to remain right in the effing way. Grrrr!
Edit: Though to be fair to Fallout III specifically - you can tell your NPC to change tactics, which I have just done (Switch from melee to ranged weapons)
Let’s see how that pans out.
