Can you be one punch killed by a speicialist melee attack?

As above really. There are a couple of players on PC that keep doing this to me lately, it's really annoying since I'm playing as a heavy and have been at full health everytime.

So is this normal, a bug or cheating?

    It’s the “Stealth Star Card” It increases your melee damage.
    Max it can go is 125 so heavies requires 2 hits at full health.
    What does DX in my name stand for?

    Above 200 damage? seems excessive from a sniper.
  • I've also experienced what seemed like a single melee death. Bubble boy runs up while I'm shooting his shield and I go from 150 to 0 in one hit.

    Yeah, this is it’s own animal now, and it’s pretty fun. Bubble boy versus vanguard or heavy. Rolling, punching, shooting, impact grenade. Other day, I was about to take out the heavy with the final blowout after this type of fracas, then he throws the impact grenade point blank. Kills us both. A worthy death.

    No, but melee attacks string together rather quickly and seem to be affected by latency more than most abilities. Therefore you can get hit 2-3 times before your screen shows the first tick of damage.

    That explains things... Thanks.
  • Again... I have posted that this makes no sense. I have Epic Brawler cards on all class and a specialist melee will still take me down in a fist fight at full health. Useless card to use and upgrade? I am starting to think so.
  • im pretty sure the most they hit for is 125 dmg HOWEVER i believe if you hit from behind it does more because i 1 shot kids when melee'ing them from behind.

    Brawler simply gives health on melee kills.

    It's quite hard to roll when you are being killed by the first punch.

    i know right, think some people dont read the cards close enough...

    and before they buffed specialist HP they could use a fist fight even with the stealth card
