    The thought being that, well, if you KILL an opposing soldier, he or she can be left on the ground till cessation of the firefight. You've nullified one soldier.

    If, instead, you wound said soldier, it will take at least one and probably more soldiers to clear the injured soldier. So by wounding, you've nullified more than one soldier.

    Cold calculus, but that's how it works.
