In the salamander boss fight, in between the fire phase and the ice phase, and after recovering from being stunned, the salamander takes a second or so to fade from the fire form to the ice form. If Edgar hits it with a flaming arrow during this transformation, it only takes one hit for the salamander to be stunned again.

However, the graphic used for the salamander will still be this half-way-between-fire-and-ice form; it won't use the proper graphic for being stunned - but the behaviour will be as though it is stunned. The salamander then goes onto the acid-spitting behaviour phase - but the graphic will still be the blend of fire and ice.

    More info about how to recreate this bug: it depends on what the location of the fire salamander was when it received its last blow from an ice cube before becoming stunned.

    If the fire salamander was at either side of the battle area when it was stunned - for example, the sideways fire spitting attack, then the salamander rises up from the stunned position, and transforms into the ice form where it is - and the battle continues as normal.

    However, if the fire salamander was in the upper middle area - for example, for the ceiling burn attack - and Edgar delivers the last blow by throwing an ice cube from as high as he can jump from the platform beside the stalactite, then the salamander will fall to the middle of the battle area when stunned. Once the stun phase has finished, the salamander will move up, then sideways, and back down again, before starting to transform into the ice form. It's at this point that it's possible to stun the salamander again with only one hit.
