You know me Renim, you know that I am a somewhat capable escort player, and as weird as it may sound, the OP has a point.

Under normal circumstances, the attacked player has a time window of about 1 second to react to the incoming stun.

Under certain circumstances (I don't wanna get into details), the time window to react is ZERO. The stun gets applied on you before the BOP decloaks and get targetable itself. I have frapsed and watched these attack runs in slow motion. In a nutshell, right now BOPS are capable of stunning while they are cloaked. Listening to audio clues will not help. "Staying alert" will not help.
