Since when do brutes have an IK?

Never had that happen before. When the hell did bioware put that in?

And what triggers it, sometimes I can just beat a brute down even on gold with Krogan.

Always had it.

From what I've heard, Brutes/Banshees/Atlas mechs can only do their insta-gib after their melee attacks. Since Brutes normally just charge, they rarely get the chance to do their fatality.

theyve always had it, but its starting to look like Bioware made all of the IK's for each big boss happen a little more frequently as of late.

Never had it happen before tonight, never seen it happen before except once when it was so buggy that it didn't kill anyone who was grabbed and seemed to go away the next day. Never saw it again, thought it was disabled.

Its still not as bad as the Banshees "Hover ten feet into the Banshees hand" IK attack.

Yeah, Brutes and Atlas' have Insta-kill moves but they're used so rarely there is very little risk of actually being hit by them. (It does happen, but not very often)

Yeah, I've had it happen to me several times in the same game as a Human Vanguard, just bad luck. Since after a while I tend to forget that these enemies have insta-kills and neglect my dodge cancelling, only to get hit by them and rage when it happens. >.>

Yeah, I've been on the receiving end of that. Now I normally try to run away when they're teleporting. The last time it happened was in the LZ on Wave 11 in Giant. With about 10 seconds on the clock, she came around the corner, and was near the door to the small room. So I ran past her and was at the ammo box when I see myself get pulled back and into her arms. Partial Extractions for everyone! :P
