@S.BAZ:

You can fire much faster if you hold your controller that way and mash using your forearm muscles rather than just a finger/thumb tapping. Takahashi Meijin did it this way to achieve his legendary "16shot" speed

voted YES  yes

now i have another question -- do you ever use both A and B buttons alternating, to fire faster?

@S.BAZ:

Thanks smiley

I do this in some games, but in Star Soldier it is rather unpractical, since you have to make short breaks between alternating key presses or the game won't register all the shots, so to fire faster, you need to find a certain "rhythm" for alternating the buttons. For Star Soldier, I'd rather stick with mashing wink
