In the first gif, I am holding the Attack button(F) with the Slingshot to attack. However my character goes to the idle state before shooting a new target which causes the shooting speed to reset.
In the second gif, I am clicking a new entity right after I shoot, which retains my shooting speed because my character does not go to the idle state.
Wouldn't it be nicer to make sure the character doesn't go to the idle state while using the slingshot after it chooses a new target? It makes it very annoying to take down hordes of mobs when your slingshot shooting speed resets when you need to attack a new target while holding the attack button, and would just be a really nice improvement in QoL for Walter.
1. Equip Slingshot
2. Hold F button on hordes, and notice after one mob dies and your character chooses to attack another one, the shooting speed resets as you go to the idle state first
3. Attack again but with the mouse, and click a new mob/entity right after you shoot, This retains your fast shooting speed.
