Would having Freedom perk affect the duration of that knock down?

This is a common thing. You can basically swap weapons while being knockdowned and it instantly breaks the CC and you can stand up and run right away.

So this is actually not the Freedom perk, its the known bug to swap weapons to escape knockdowns instantly. Easy to apply with a rapier and such.


Yep, there’s a post with about 7 videos of people doing it in arenas consistently. Definitely an exploit of existing systems.
