Bots able to evade while stunned. Bug, or intentional? [Under Investigation]

I am getting tired of losing large chunks of health in AM from this strange mechanic. Essentially, it often happens when I use Bludgeon against Barricade. One of my attacks stuns him, so I charge in to do some damage while he's incapacitated. I then see an 'evade' message, and he proceeds to counter-attack me. When he 'evades' he breaks the stun, regardless of how long was left on the stun timer, essentially turning my advantage into a disadvantage.

It seems counter-intuitive that a bot is able to 'evade' while stunned, and this has affected me numerous times.

Maybe someone from Kabam can comment as to whether this is a bug, or is working as intended? If it is a bug, can it please be added to the known bug list?

Thank you.

    I've been noticing a slightly different situation, but very similar. For the past few days I've been noticing it occur more often as I charge into to hit the opposing bot, and actually watch fists or blades pass through the bot, not once, but often a couple times with no effect, to then have the opponent bot use a special against me.

    There almost seems to be a delay in the activation of the special that the bot doesn't do anything and my swings go right through them with no effect. I notice this most often when fighting against VM1 Prime and Barricade.
  • Well that is odd. Have you only seen this in Alliance Missions? If not, can you tell us where else, who were you using , and who were you facing?

    We'll have the team investigate the situation, but don't add anything to the known bugs list until we can confirm that it is indeed happening and start to work on it.

    I hardly attack Barricade when he has is evade buff on. Only attack him when he does not have his evade buff on.

    I've seen this loads of times with all bots that have evade skills in all segments of the game.

    For instance I never fire ranged attacks at Arcee when she's stunned because it instantly ends the stun

    It's weird that evade should override stun, but it definitely does in all instances

    (By "all instances" I mean, it's not just a quirk of two particular bots. Obviously evade doesn't proc 100% of the time, and it needs to proc to prematurely end the stun, but I've had it happen in loads of different combinations of bots in arena, raid and story fights including on bots who only have evasion due to a mod like NBM. Not usually in AM because I'm too cautious to trust stun in AM)

    agree. i've seen this many times before when the AI bot is charging forward.. it will render your range skill useless (like 2-3 shots all missing the AI). And the enemy is not even swiping left or right just straight charging at you!

    To add to the issue, yesterday I had bumblebee evade out of Drift's special #2 during a Raid. The first hit with Drifts blade hit, and then bumblebee evaded out of the second swing some how? He jumps out of punch combos all the time but I fail to see how he should be able to do that in a special?

    I've had this happen to me. Not just in AM missions though. I get the Stun message and without ANY stunning, they just backstep or sidestep--yes, actual movement not just the word Evade popping up.
