Damage rate

User:193.60.163.171 changed

"Due to its high damage rate (three times that of the chaingun)"

to

"Due to its high damage rate (A third faster than that of the chaingun)"

with the edit summary (Three times faster? I don't think so).

Chaingun: 525.0 bullets/minute × 10 hp/bullet = 5250 hp/minute.

Plasma gun: 700.0 cells/minute × 22.5 hp/cell = 15750 hp/minute.

This kind of calculation doesn't really have four-digit precision because of the finite size of m_random.c, but still, how is that not a factor of 3?    Ryan W 18:28, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Page name

> The plasma gun (also known as the plasma rifle in the game manuals, help screen and code comments)

If everything official calls it the plasma rifle, should we just rename the article? Fraggle (talk) 19:45, 22 March 2020 (CDT)
