"Cheating" is how Cryptic creates "challenge". Their game engine doesn't have a very complex AI, so they come up with these cheats for their boss fights to make encounters more exciting.

Unfortunately, this makes death/failure come entirely random rather than players making mistakes. You could do everything right and still get 1 shot.
