    I recently discovered a new tech I feel has some competitive viability involving the use of a sub weapon. This tech involves the beacon sub and attempting to use it in mid air. Because the beacon cannot be placed anywhere within that space it will push you to the ground instead hence the name fast falling. I've provided a video of me performing this for reference.

    I honestly don't see any difference. Do stage recon and test it on Moray or Flounder Heights. Also compare a normal fall versus a fast fall with beakon.

    I can't believe I wasted 5 minutes. ;-;

    (also I did multiple cuts, basically this does nothing. there is no increase in speed. its pretty much the same thing as mashing squid form in ink.)

    tldr; OP didn't find anything, this does nothing. you probably already knew that. and if you didn't well now you know.

    About as effective as using the Rainmaker's Shield to wavedash off the map.
