Damage per Second
(Redirected from DPS)Jump to navigation Jump to search
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.
Max DPS = (Damage × Burst Shot Count) ÷ (Ranged Cooldown (ticks) + Warm-up (ticks) + (Burst Time (ticks) * (Burst Count - 1)) × 60
Charge rifle max DPS = (15 × 3) ÷ (120 ticks + 60 ticks + 12 ticks × (3 - 1)) × 60 = 13.24
