The AI's not the brightest of opponents - my guess is it uses a Monte Carlo method, which is known to lead to the AI missing 'obvious' things like that (but then good AI is one of the hardest problems to solve in computer games).
Actually, the part of my plan with the two shotgunners in the bottom left rooms was the first part I figured out, and I only happened upon that possible AI plan about a minute before I primed. It wasn't exactly an obvious counter.
That's why I put 'obvious' in 's like that!
I meant things that are obvious in hindsight (which we humans are actually pretty good at figuring out, if we spend some time thinking about it, but AI struggles with).
