Damage per second

Damage per second, often abbreviated to DPS, is a weapon statistic commonly used to compare different arms.

Usually only the shield-damaging statistics are considered, as objects in the X-Universe typically have considerably more shielding than hull strength. It requires calculation from other given weapon statistics, namely the damage per shot and ROF, and does not account for the weapon's accuracy (or lack of).
