I've been having a huge main crisis recently and after my most recent tournament I finally decided to make the switch to Samus. However, as I've been trying to learn her missile tech, I'm having some questions and difficulties, mainly with dropping through a platform and shooting a missile. Do you find it easier/is there a better way between flicking down on the control stick and then inputting the missile vs. rolling the control stick in a quarter circle forwards?

Also, as a quick side question, is it technically faster to do FH FF missiles or SH non-FF missiles? SH FF missiles are too hard for me.

Sorry no one's responded in so long :/

For dropping through a platform and missiling, you have plenty of time to do it, so either method should work. I usually explicitly input down -> side, but it's essentially the same as a quarter circle motion.

iirc fullhop fastfall missiles are slightly faster if you fastfall as early as possible (at the peak of your jump).
