I've been equipping my rookies with the Arc Thrower. They can't hit the broad side of a barn as it is. At least the Arc Thrower is about an 80% hit ratio.
I gave my whole team one. Cornered one of them shard guys in a ship and bum rushed him. Once you have Titan armor and chitin plating you can take 2-3 shots without a problem.
