Counterpoke with armoured DB2 at all times.
From the quick testing I did it seems like one or two frames faster if you can do them almost frame perfect from jumping off the ground.I tried getting them out as fast and low to the ground as possible but after recovery it doesn‘t feel much faster as when you just regulary bf1. The particle itself is a little bit faster though at least it feels like it
It's a super minor difference tho for how hard they are to do. The projectile is just so small you have to do them so low to the ground
