all ships have the ability to keep two weapons firing continuously without running low on weapon energy (low weapon energy = each shot does less damage) ...

the design they have in mind (probably) is that you fire a salvo with all your weapons.. two are autofiring, your weapon energy goes down the drain and recharges..
when its back up again, you fire all weapons again.
fighting like that, you do more damage than if all your weapons were firing all the time, but doing only 10-20 damage.

still.. if people want a piece of rope to hang themselves with, go right ahead

fake-edit: there are also fittings you can use to have a sustainable weapon energy whilst firing all weapons. so there's a reason to allow it for that reason too.
