Well, his is second hand information as I did not see it happen myself, but
from what I understand it only had to bounce back a few feet in the
situation that happened at Crusades ...

The blunt had struck on the breastplate of someone standing in the front of
a shield wall, and had bounced back the 3 feet or so to hit the other line.
