Does BPCW have an Unstoppable Effect?

I know that BPCW has the counter stun deal whenever he has an armor effect up. That's not what I'm referring to.

Instead, I was doing the boss in the 4th wing of the challenge event, using my 5* Hypy, and I nailed him with a SP2 that triggered a stun. I know that stuns from specials don't trigger BPCW's counter, so I went in and hit him with a combo, and knowing that standard AI with no masteries would be stunned long enough to do either a second combo, or a heavy, I elected to do a heavy to try to build a few fury stacks.

Instead, I watched what looked like the Unstoppable buff trigger rapidly on BPCW, and he launched into me mid heavy. I checked his node buffs, didn't see anything, and I wasn't aware that the standard BPCW had such a thing.

So what caused this?

    Doh, so it is! I've never used a heavy on him before, due the nature of parries to setup the heavy against him being dangerous, so I guess I never encountered that before. And since Hypy's heavy is a flurry of punches, that explains why I saw the buff flash about 3 or 4 times.

    Silly me!

    Well, lessons learned, and I'll keep that in mind next runs and just combo his face off.
