Please tone down the flash on the projected shield crouch!

The shield projection flash is WAY too bright.
The shield I have (in the video) is one of the best shields I have, but to my disappointment, it has the projected shield crouch attached to it. While sliding around (I like to slide a lot, especially with increased slide speed artifacts), after a few minutes, I get a headache and my eyes hurt like hell! Please tone down the flash of the shield projection!
Or at the very least, eliminate the shield projection while sliding.

Or, if you plan on keeping the obnoxious flash as one of the downsides to having these shields, you should rename them with surnames like “headlights to your face” or “epilepsy teabagger”.
The stats on that shield are fantastic, it’s just unplayable for me to use any such shield unless I unbind my crouch key.
