- Sometimes AI won't shoot when you use this command. It can be fixed by placing selectWeapon command before it.

- In OFP v1.96, when a man class unit is given this command, he will aim up in the air before firing his weapon. This makes it rather useless if you want to make him shoot a target. It does work with vehicles, when the vehicle is first given a doWatch or doTarget command.

- In ArmA v1.02, this command is not working with weapons in the secondary turrets (like "DSHKM" in T-72)

To place a satchel (pipebomb) the syntax is:
OFP: unitname Fire ["put", "pipebomb"]
ArmA: unitname Fire ["pipebombmuzzle", "pipebombmuzzle", "pipebomb"];
The triggering is done via a "TOUCHOFF" action.

- In Arma 2, AI will automatically shoot straight up. Command seems to be broken.

- Command is broken - confirmed. Use action "USEWEAPON" instead.
Place a game logic in the editor. Name it MyGameLogic.
Use this code to make unit1 fire his primaryweapon:
MyGameLogic action ["useWeapon", primaryWeapon unit1, unit1, 0];

- Command works just fine in A2/OA. Make sure to execute it on local AI.

- If it did work at one time, it does no longer. The AI (or player) is forced to look upwards or reacts to a massive recoil force before getting his shot off.

- Command did not work with ACR 1.62. Use fireAtTarget instead.

In Arma 3 in order for AI to place Claymore, for example, it is necessary to execute 3 statements - an animation, weapon select and the actual fire command. Animation is most likely for forcing unit to leave rest state, weapon select and fire kinda both go together anyway:
_unit playActionNow "PutDown"; _unit selectWeapon "DirectionalMineRemoteMuzzle"; _unit fire [ "DirectionalMineRemoteMuzzle", "DirectionalMineRemoteMuzzle", "ClaymoreDirectionalMine_Remote_Mag" ];

In Arma 3, as of version 1.76, examples 2 and 3 in the section above for smoke grenades are no longer working.
As a workaround (throwing green smoke grenades for example), you can use:
[_soldier, "SmokeShellGreenMuzzle"] call BIS_fnc_fire;
