I was running a quick Exterminate on Saturn to check out the lighting changes and hopefully play with some ziplines, when I got smacked by a Powerfist I didn't notice.. To my suprise, I got a Viral proc. I proceeded to find another powerfist and found the same result. Since when is this a thing?

yes, Powerfists can apply Viral Status.

have been able to for... a year or more.

it's really surprising the first time, because you get complacent and have relegated to assuming that Enemy is useless.

but hah! he tricks you.

Wait...powerfists can actually hit you?!

It's a slightly more common occurrence if you use sniper rifles or anything that requires prolonged zooming. It doesn't help matters that Powerfists rarely make noise (ambient or verbal), so they tend to sneak up on you.

 

It gets really bad past a certain level (30-ish?), they can and will one-shot you.

A year? Geez. I've been playing since U12, I'm suprised this is the first time it's happened to me.
