Exactly. Blunt Trauma Injury is based on the amount of damage stopped by flexible armor. If you have DR 2 rigid and the rest is flexible, then at most, you'll be stopping (damage-2) with flexible armor.

Hmm, doesn't he get shot in the forehead and pass out in one movie? That might be Knockdown but it requires a Shock penalty and that means injury... Poetic license sucks:)
Yeah, but that was a magic^H^H^H^H^Hadamantium bullet, so it got to do whatever it wanted.
