In their either overheated or basic state, Obsidian Axe and Obsidian Machete allow for endless stunlocking of enemies. Obsidian Spear does not share this behaviour.
You just need to keep swinging with the weapon at the enemy and they will be locked in "staggered" animation with each swing.
This exploit removes any challenge from fighting Sealnado or any other single threatening enemy, as you can walk up to them and start attacking with Obsidian tool with impunity.
This exploit was present even before the "Wilbur vs. Volcano" update, but now with even more ways to obtain and craft Obsidian tools it may become more visible to other players.
High durability of Obsidian Tools adds another pain factor to this exploit.
Version: "Wilbur vs. Volcano" update, cannot find the build version.
Verified both on console-spawned and legit targets.

This issue has been fixed in either a future version or updated in a previous version.
