As I have observed it, if you have 2 targets you stay above 125, if you have 3 you start dipping below 100 on some hits, and if you have 4 you start running low power.
But damage against 2-3 targets seems to be much better. So when you start dipping into low power of course the beams do less damage because beams need power. So keep to 2-3 targets and you burn them up, fire at a whole lot of targets and power goes through the floor and takes damage with it.
Maybe its bugged, I dunno, but it seems to be working like I would expect it to. It always felt weirdly artificial to me before.
