yes and no. the bops will attack a target if you have clicked on the attack command button and i've noticed them firing disruptors and photon torpedos. however there still seems to be a bug where if you click on the recall button and then the attack button they won't attack. if you stick to using just the attack command button you should be fine.
I've been complaining about this since the summer when they got broken and there is still no fix to them. They are pretty much still broken... I'm not really considering half broken or slightly less broken than they were before as a fix.
