Waste not triggering payback

Why should payback be triggered by waste not when the rush wasn’t aimed at payback character? I was using christa in raids and survival road and wanted to know if she could safely kill negan with waste not by hitting the toon adjacent to him and she cant and the hit ended up killing 3 teammates. Her rush says 1 enemy and payback says "if hit by a rush or active skill " and it’s her specialist skill doing the damage therefore i think payback shouldn’t be triggered…thoughts?

Working as designed. There have been several threads questioning this since Negan came out.

That’s stupid tho cause as payback details:“rush or active skill” and collateral damage and waste not are specialist skills. It shouldn’t matter if it’s tied to an ar it’s damage done as a result of the specialist skill

This has been covered. The waste not damage triggers payback if it’s from a rush since it’s created by the rush. Waste not doesn’t trigger payback if it’s damage from a normal attack.

Even worse is when Christa does not kill the targeted toon but Negans payback is triggered. Seen this happen to many times. There is so much broken and bugged combat. But hey 5* weapons will help right? Please just fix what’s broke and stop trying to improve what ain’t.
