2.) CSV doesn't castrate your power levels and reduce your weapons to the status of nerf guns. FAW does.
Lowering the duration is how I think it should be addressed: flip it so that CSV is more of a burst damage against multiple targets. Currently, I feel that it impinges too much into how Fire At Will works, and is just one of the factors rendering beam weapons rather redundant against cannons.
