    It is like the time freezes when you use a sp3. You don't take bleed damage, for instance.

    No dude, when time's up, no effect can affect u in any way, u can't regen or take bleed dmg or limbo dmg or power sting dmg -_-

    If you used your sp3 in the last second, it was in this last second that power sting triggered. You just saw it after because of the animation.

    If i used sp3 in the last sec, time still goes on bud, and u can try it if u don't believe me, so when it reaches 0 all effects stop working, and i tried it dozen times when I got power sting...

    Typically, when using a special with Power Sting, it kills you even before the special is used. It still triggers the second you use the special 3, but you get the bonus of using the attack because of the way it is designed. It killed you when you used it, you just didn't see it until after.

    To clarify for o.p.:

    1. Power sting triggers before the actual special attack (you might be getting confused with the way recoil works)
    2. If anything the fact that you got that sp3 in and that extra damage, that is where the bug is, not the fact you got power stung but the fact you were still able to get the sp3 in.

    wrong. Power sting triggers before sp1 and sp2, but after sp3. However, the damage for the sp3 and the resulting power sting I guess both register immediately when you use them... you're just then watching the animation play out.

    LMFAO guess I still was not clear enough. You are agreeing with me so thanks!

    When a match in aw or aw is timed out and it hits 0.00 there is still a second the match carries on. That is why power sting got you. The same will happen if u pause the match and the runner will go to 0 then your pause screen will go away and you have a split second you can react. The match does not really end until u see the words time out
  • Match does not end until a few seconds after 0:00. This is to compensate for the few seconds it takes when the match starts when characters are not within reach of each other. It also is to punish those that try to timeout the game, forcing to play for a few seconds after 0:00 when you can get hit by a special 3, take debuff damage, etc.

    No. Your damage is aplied before the power sting damage. If you managed to kill YJ with your sp3, you would be safe.

    Everyone has kind of already answered this, but just to reiterate.

    What's happening is sting always goes off before the special. Because you use a special 3 you don't see that damage applied until after the animation, but it is already present.

    Having the timer run out no longer matters because the only way to stop sting from killing you is to have YJ actually die from you sp3 because the sting was already applied.

    It works this way on every special, it's just less obvious with an sp3 because it has to run through the whole animation first.

    There's nothing abnormal about the way that it's working. It just happened before the timer ran out because it technically triggered at the very beginning of your sp3.
