Oh I figured it was pretty well known as I found it pretty easy and thought it was kind of neat.   That's why you saw me standing at the hull just switching my tools rapidly eventhough the hull was up in like 2 seconds

That is not well known. I'll check it out today to see if it saves time. Good job finding that :)

Hah! In my defense, my engineering career amounts to ~1/3 my time at the helm. But good find, and we shall see if it indeed works. A salute regardless.

I just noticed the Salute thingy; what does that do? It says I have 7 salutes

Sounds like a bug more than a vet trick, lol. Now i need to try that...

Yep, definitely a bug. Good find though Phoebe. I wonder how long it's been like that...

All those times I came one hit away from rebuilding the hull, just to see it blow up...

I  just investigated the "skip cooldown" bug, because, well, that would be bad.  But as far as I can tell, you cannot actually use it to rebuild faster.

What you're seeing is solely a bug with the animation client-side.  The time between rebuild hits is independently checked on the server, and that check is not affected by this.  In fact, if you watch closely while doing this and are actually doing it fast enough to beat the animation, you'll see that the rebuild meter doesn't actually fill in response to the extra hit.

I'm guessing this was on a Squid? It really does only take about 3 seconds (4 hits) to rebuild the Squid's armor with the Shifting Spanner.

So our engineers hasn't been holding this a secret to us? good to hear

You can use this trick to buff and fix. Switching between buffing hammer and anything else.

This makes it so you hit as soon as you can on both timers.

Oh and I played with TheEnd again, My favorite new gunner.

Agreed about the rebuild trick. Tried it today and while it felt faster, it didn't actually make a difference.

And Phoebe was on a Pyramidion, actually.

Yeah I gave it a shot as well, it felt maybe a tiny bit faster but that was probably just in my head. As so many things seem to be.

Shout out to Deadpoet (I'm pretty sure that's his name  ??? ), an ace gunner.

Flew with my fellow Duck Captain Smollett yesterday. We spent a whole bunch of matches on his Squid, which really gave me a boost in terms of buffing achievements. I went from needing over 100 buffs to 0. I also got to practice my Sebi-style Squid engineering. Only two more achievements for level 9 engineer.
