There have been reports about Pete reviving in weird circunstances. I’ve noticed this myself today.
The enemy Pete had a stun&focus gun. I taunted Pete with Doc round 1 and rushed him twice with Aarav, no regular attack on Pete before however. Pete barely survived and used his rush when my move was done.
I see two possible bugs here. The focus triggering on a rush attack and then that the weapon focus overrides the taunt, which was applied beforehand.
