I've had several experiences when Bloodwing has given me a second wind (or just damaged enemies) if he was thrown/in-fight before I was crippled. I'm sure it was Bloodwing, happened multiple times on single player, using no elemental weapons, no explosive barrels near and I have even been revived by it while I was still unable to shoot. It's not a timing glitch. I've been killed from behind with a Bloodwing that's been following me for a few seconds already, then turned around to have the bloodwing kill them.
This is happening on the xbox360. Can anyone else confirm this form me? Nothing else on the wiki seems to mention this and several articles (Action skills, crippled, this one) do not seem to mention this unique feature of Bloodwing. I don't want to add it to articles if it's just a weird fluke of my disk/system. Ilovefuzzykittens 07:24, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
It is possible to get a second wind from Bloodwing, I just did like 10 minutes ago. It's very valuable when you have points in Bird of Prey and/or Out For Blood. 08:18, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
- Bloodwing will stop attacking as soon as you go down. It will only grant you a second wind if it has already locked on an enemy and has begun its attack run.18.104.22.168 14:45, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
--- Ah, I see. So would it be worth adding then, at least the part about Bloodwing not being cancelled if it is during an attack run? Bird of Prey+Swift Strike can be quite an impressive way to aid second winds if timed well. Ilovefuzzykittens 14:56, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
--- Nevermind that last post I've made. I've tested it out a few times by deploying the bird and looking at the sky (to prevent triggering an attack run) while I got shot to death by 1 bandit from behind. After the bleed out timer started, I turned around and bloodwing attacked for a second wind. It's pretty clear that bloodwing is not be cancelled by being crippled, so I'll add it to the articles.

This is exactly the behaviour I have experienced, I just didn't want to set up an experiment to disprove 22.214.171.124.13:18, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
