Shooting from elevation with cover

There seem to be a lot of issues with sidestepping cover while taking a shot, but in particular I notice it in any situation where I’m in cover shooting down from an elevated position. My soldiers just don’t seem smart enough to stand up or sidestep to attack their target - instead they actually shoot their own cover!
This behavior is endlessly repeatable.

I do hope that this isn’t the intended mechanic.

Yeah I’ve noticed that soldiers seemingly randomly decide to side-step cover. If they CAN do it, they SHOULD. Super annoying when they don’t or won’t.

And sometimes they literally blow thier cover! And you’re exposed to a live and pissed-off alien…
