Luke OHKO With Heavy Strike

So earlier I was playing HvV on Jawa Refuge. I picked Luke, and ran over to the one area with the cave on the left and the cliffside on the right. I saw the Emperor, ran toward him, and used Heavy Strike. it looked like the attack got stuck in him, sending sparks everywhere and reducing his health to 0 instantly. Sadly I don't have a video of it, but I found one of someone doing the same thing to Vader. https://youtube.com/watch?v=jIxGx0ZOLMA

Has this happened to anyone else?

    Heavy strike doesn't deal one big blow to an enemy, it delivers several weaker blows to an enemy (i know it's a weaker attack than the regular swing cause i hit a stormtrooper with one blow with the HVY strike and it didn't kill him)

    Ok, but is it supposed to insta-kill heroes like that?

    I'm not too sure, but i know Vader can get rid of half of Luke's health with it, out depends on well you can use it, some accuracy is needed to deal a huge blow, I'm pretty sure you used it on someone that was on low health

    No, it was at the beginning of the match. Palps was at full health.

    Not so sure about that then, i don't fight the Emperor as much with Luke or vice versa, maybe you just got really lucky to get a 100% accurate heavy strike attack

    That's probably what happened. Just seems odd it's possible to OHKO heroes with a certain attack.

  • Interesting, it looks like when you are aiming at hero you keep dealing damage. Same goes for Dengar's Hurricane Strike
  • In the ice caves, I had Luke and rushed at Dengar and Greedo who were up at a corner shooting at Han and Leia.

    I came up from behind and landed a heavy strike point blank on both and dropped them both about 50%. To do better than that must be a bug.
