    If you're using a sloshing machine, remember that it's not exactly a blaster. It has an arc you can abuse.

    If you're about to attack someone that isn't ready, you can arc your first shot slightly up so that it has a longer distance to travel. Both the first and second shot will arrive at about the same time; it's impossible to react to.
    Now, obviously, please don't run around trying to get 1 frame kills every time like a l33t MLG pr0. The point is that as long as you angle your first shot, you can go from hitting a person to killing them a lot faster than normal.

    This is obviously a super rough diagram, but the angles don't matter much. The hitboxes on sloshing machine are so big that it's pretty easy to land the first hit. You don't even have to angle very high a get a benefit from it. As long as the first shot is higher than the second, you're increasing your burst damage.

    You can start literally anywhere inside direct hit range, although 1 frame kills start from about splattershot range. That's just around half a line closer than regular direct hit range. To top it off, you can totally backpedal after you fire the first shot so it's like you were at max range the whole time.

    EDIT:
    Here's what I'm talking about in motion:


    Obviously nothing gamebreaking, but it's a nice tool to prevent people from from reacting to you. Especially given how common baller and splashdown are getting.

    Someone recorded a clip for me, here's what it looks like in motion:

    With some practice you can strafe around and combo the moving dummies all day.

    This is very useful information.

    Very frustrating to deal with in game, but very useful. :p
