Higher Attack Speed will increase the speed of all attack animations and increases the charge speed of Charged Nano-Bomb, however, it does not affect the duration nor the tickrate of Flamethrower.
Artificer's other abilities cannot be activated in the duration of Flamethrower, however, sprinting will cancel the attack instantly.
