How are you all still wrong about red insta kill!?!?

we found this out months ago, you can shoot as much as you want; you must not get touched or hit by a zomB during a normal insta kill. THAT is how you get it.

It is easy enough to test, also, no proof that jugg is stackable.

And perma Jugg stays after round 15 but only for thatgame, after you get past 15 you will lose it NEXT GAME but you still keep it for the remainder of that game. Unless there is some other unknown way to lose it.

perma jugg downs you on the 6th hit and is lost if downed after round 15 or next game after round 15

He is correct on both RedInsta and NoobNog... NoobNog does stack, and you always lose it at the start of 15...
