Sometimes after your character dies, you can cause your currently equipped weapon to fire off during the death animation . Where it shoots is completely random, and depends on the direction the gun is pointing as you fall. This effect is most notable if you have a rocket launcher or assault rifle equipped. Yo also have a greater chance of it happening if your death animation lasts longer (such as from being blown up and flying through the air due to a grenade or other explosive). While you do not get any benefits from this happening, it is pretty satisfying to kill your attacker after you die. Note: This also works the other way. Sometimes NPCs will shoot you after Niko kills them. It is pretty rare, but it can happen.
