Please Help me explain this WarZone mystery

OP Monitor Meds

Hello Waypointers, near the beginning of WarZone matches on Escape from ARC I like to try to steal the enemy's 2:00 Ranger commander in the tunnel. I'm normally relatively successful at it, but just now I had something strange happen. The elite seemed to be immune to a backsmack for the first time. Did they update that recently?

Any explanation?

I don't quit. Ever. But I almost rage quit when I died.

I notice sometimes a force wall appears between the Elite spawn and my vehicle.
IDK. It looks like you kinda lunged under his arm or something?

I wonder what triggers it.

I don't think I missed. You can even hear the melee crunch noise. I can't be unbiased though. I did it the way I do every game.
Well it is a stronger elite so a backsmack wouldnt kill the ranger commander right?
That's a neat trick sneaking up on them before they spawn.

It kills him dead every time. The soldier commanders too. And the stealth Elites on stormbreak. That's why the enemy Spartan was there. To backsmack him.
I have had the same issue with the elite that spawns near your homebase on ARC..
Probably wasn't fully loaded into the area. So you hit a hitbox on his side, rather than back.

I didn't say you missed him, I said you might have missed his back.
I have had this happen before, not sure why.
Im jealous of that magnum skin though.

I'm glad I picked up the hcs pack while it was out.
