As many know, the hale has an explosion bug. If you're knocked back while in the explosion animation, you can move before you explode.
Who thinks that this should be patched? Is it really that unbalanced that it has to be patched?
Yes, I'm aware it's a bug, but then again, if it doesn't make the game unbalanced, then honestly it's not that big a problem.
Just made this post to see the sentiment about this bug.

(Upvote if you think this should be patched, and downvote if you don't really care/think it shouldn't be patched)

As I say every time this issue comes up, if you're going to prevent Saxtron from detonating while airborne, you have to get rid of that horrendous end lag on the explosion animation. It's ridiculous that a hale can get punished by multiple backstabs, gardens, and potentially a huntsman stun lock just for using their rage.

lag? can you go into more detail? does the explosion cause lag?

You can also jump and press m1 to activate the explosion and since you are airborne the taunt animation gets ignored and the boss can just walk near players so they have no chance to escape the radius, it's frustating at most, players are unlikely to escape cuz they are
stunned, it would be gamebreaking if you couldn't survive by breaking line of sight and pray that the boss don't come close.
And there is another bug, if you activate the rage before the round ends the sentry buster sound keeps playing and the rage doesn't get cancelled, so you basically give the next person who chooses Robo-Hale free rage at the start of a round with no downside. If the next boss isn't Robo-Hale then nothing happens.
