====Burst Lasers====
βˆ’
Burst lasers are quite a step up from the basic laser. While they are a good choice against systems on the enemy ship, they are especially well-suited for penetrating shields due to the large number of projectiles they fire. While the Mark III may not seem significantly superior to the Mark II based simply on its damage per second (DPS), the salvo size is much more important when dealing with shields, which recharge in the time between volleys. The Burst Laser Mark III fires a volley of five shots, a force which is unstoppable by all but the most resilient shields.  However, the Mark II is more efficient, with 1.5 shots per power unit, compared to the Mark III's 1.25 shots per power unit and the Mark I with just 1 shot per power unit.  This, combined with its higher speed, means two Mark IIs can dish out six shots in 12 seconds compared to the Mark III's five shots per 19 seconds, for the same power cost, leading to almost double the DPS.  The Mark III's advantage is that it only takes a single weapon slot, but the Mark II is widely considered one of the best weapons in the game.
