Damage per Second
Damage per second (a.k.a. DPS for short) is a measure of how much damage a given weapon does per second.
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).
The DPS of weapons on the weapons page have been calculated using the following formula:
This is the maximum potential damage, ignoring accuracy.
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
Charge rifle real DPS = 13.24 × 58.8% = 7.79
Numbers are rounded to two decimal places for readability.
