I thought I read that this only applies to Portectrons in the game, but a couple of times after killing NPCs they'll fall and randomly launch into the air a good ways flying in one direction. So far this has happened to me at with the Drifter at Dickerson Tabernacle Chapel and an Enclave Soldier wearing Tesla Armor I wanted outside of Dukov's Place. Never did find the soldier.
