It appears that the very initial star that hits from right click is faster than that of the left click. Is this true?

    Something to keep in mind is that the fire rate (so not the projectile speed) was different at one stage. The right click fired faster and I still think that is the case.

This guy says he tested the projectile speeds and states the shurikens are thrown at 50 m/s - which implies both shuriken throws are done at the same speed.

More information obtained. Someone made a google sheets detailing many aspects of the game, one of them being projectile speeds.

He lists Genji's shurikens (so assuming both fires tested) at 47 m/s. Assuming both tested and they are the same because he lists alt fires for other heroes such as roadhog.

This is the original thread it came from, but the sheet was trashed, so the linked one is a recovered version.

  • Found projectile speed facts and removed dps information. He also talks about how the speed vs distance works with regards to moving enemies and hitboxes but I won't write that in.

    Removed the downvote since you're answering the question now. I don't think there's actually much evidence that he checked for separate speeds, though.
