Why are marines Automatically Shooting?

The problem here is that the detection level doesn’t rise for the Marine and still he will start shooting randomly. So, your detection level is basically broken here.

Most of the players found out that when you have Synth in the squad, then the player will just ignore the detection level and start shooting.

It is a bug in the game and has been here for quite some while. Whenever you are escorting a synth the Marine will start shooting everything in the sight.

Other times, the issue is not with the Synth and basically something completely different. The root cause of this issue is still unknown but you can give your luck a try by going through the following things.
