How would I go about emitting something directly in front of me?

In my game I have the player character 4 blocks tall and 3 wide, and a projectile that is 3 blocks tall and 1 wide. Whenever I emit the projectile it spawns 2 tiles away, defeating the purpose of the attack being a counter to a enemy close up. How would I get it to emit immediately in front of the character? In case it is relevant, the projectile is set to a rectangle in shape and the character is a polygon. I also have a 1x1 tile projectile that does spawn immediately in front, with the same settings in the emitter as the one I’m having troubles with.
