Keep in mind that a lot of what you're seeing is super early in the game's release on console, so I don't exactly have everything figured out to my liking at that point.
That being said, I've been doing another playthrough when I can't record, and I've figured out some stuff that might help me in the recorded sessions.
(even if RNG likes to screw me with misses at 90% and give itself crit kills with no apparent flank)
The only problem I have with Overwatch traps is that usually I can work myself into better positions for hit and flank crits if I use one person to piss off a pod while the rest of the squad still has actions.
Also, if I can help it, once I get a medic Specialist, you'll never see me use a Medkit. 4 GREMLIN charges are much better than 2 Medkits at close range.
