Gears of war 4 interesting trick

Explosive weapons can heal the heavy if you combine a level 6 last stand and thick skin. I shot the boom directly at my feet on normal difficulty surrounded by juvies at low health and it actually healed me

Cue the suicide start hate.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this isn’t actually a new trick. It became known shortly after Last Stand was added.

It’s also not fool proof. Sometimes you’ll take full explosive damage, other times you won’t take any or get healed.

Oh haha

As said above, this is known.

But it’s definitely not a recommended tactic, unless you don’t value your own existence too fondly.
