# 1 DPS Confusion
03-21-2013, 10:18 PM
I'm a little confused about DPS (Damage Per Second)

It looks like it should be straight forward, but then I see things like:
Phaser Dual Cannons (Mk whatever) 122.9 Phaser Damage (163.9 DPS)
Plasma Dual Heavey Cannons (Mk whatever) 241.5 Plasma Damage (161 DPS)

The phaser deals less phaser damage, but slightly higher DPS
The Plasma Cannons deal significantly higher Plasma Damage but slightly lower (DPS)

I don't understand this. It seems to me the Plasma Cannon should deal considerably higher (DPS).

I obviously am not understanding something here. Can someone please explain?
