Shall we say that its certain, known, players that do it. Well known to me anyway. its deff something out of the ordinary as there is no charging sound while the ball warms up.
well, it you must insist on this line of inquiry…
here’s two thoughts i just had (my fastorb is normal like yours).
to yo-yo, i use gg-primary/crowbar/gg/secondary = mouse1/B/mouse4/mouse2
to fastorb, i use ar-secondary/gg/primary = mouse2/mouse4/mouse1
ive never tried this, but what if i used fastorb ar-secondary/crowbar/gg/primary? in theory that shouldn’t really work. for yo-yoing, the addition of crowbar (or any other weapon switch in the correct sequence) is to cancel the timer on the gg. so it shouldnt canel the time required for an orb to charge. but with this game, who knows?
the other thought is use of the flashlight. which ive also never tried. i dont even have a bind for flashlight anymore. but cant the flashlight be used to silence the magnum? not sure if its done manually or requires a script. but im pretty certain its out there. i think there was even a thread on this site awhile back suggesting the “silent orb”. maybe the fast fastorb you’re experiencing isnt really all that much faster to initiate… maybe its just silenced while it charges and all you hear is the discharge?
