Underneath this value is the recharge time of the weapon (Note that the recharge time can be reduced by certain buffs, such as the MACO set's 2-piece bonus). Adding the "maximum" firing time to the recharge time will give you the total time taken for one complete weapon activation cycle sequence.
Each weapon can proc individually (once per activation sequence) and ignores the effects of other weapons, regardless of the source. Meaning that if 3 people are firing 3 phaser weapons each at a single target, that's 9 separate chances to be hit with the Subsystem Offline proc, per activation cycle.
The same mechanics are true of all such weapon procs.
Now Borticus was talking about Phasers, but the only weapon types that work differently to this are Antiprotons (since their bonus is a flat Crit Severity buff) and Disruptors (since the debuff is implemented as a power on your enemy it can't stack from multiple sources, but it can be
from multiple sources)
Cheers for that, very useful indeed.
