Damage per second (a.k.a. DPS for short), is a measure of how much damage a given weapon does per second.

## Disclaimer

These DPS formulas don't account for a pawn's shooting skills.

It's just a calculation of raw, total output damage (on a single target).

## Calculation

The DPS of weapons on the weapons page have been calculated using the following formula:

### Maximum DPS

This is the maximum potential damage, ignoring accuracy.

Max DPS = (Damage × Burst Count) ÷ ((Cooldown + Warmup + (Burst Ticks × (Burst Count - 1))) ÷ 60 ticks per second )

### Real DPS

This is the realistic damage output of just the weapon itself with accuracy factored in. Doesn't account for colonist skill.

Real DPS = Max DPS × Average Accuracy

Numbers are rounded to two decimal places for readability.
