Is there a way in godot to get the mouse cursor velocity/ movement speed?
I know we can detect if the mouse is moving - but can we detect how fast it is moving??

Maybe the getmousespeed( ) function could help you. In the documentation, it says:

Returns the mouse speed for the last time the cursor was moved, and this until the next frame where the mouse moves. This means that even if the mouse is not moving, this function will still return the value of the last motion.

Here is also some discussion about how it works, that might interest you.
