How do I constantly shoot, non-stop

Recommended Posts

You probably don't want to do that, as many weapons have heat that builds up and which eventually requires we weapon to stop for a time to cool off.   Its better to have different groups of weapons to alternate between (plasma, missiles, rails, etc) so that you can fire just the ones you need in the situation.

If you are tired of holding down the mouse button, get (or make) some auto-firing turrets.  Though they traditionally lose DPS when they autofire, there is a mod to disable that "feature" of the game.

use turrets that dont have the battery draw, overheat or burst trait.

this will limit your options for weapon type though.

Without limiting your options, you can pay special attention to how many servos are used in turrets that have battery/overheat traits.  They modify the fire rate and if you lower the fire rate, the length of time the turret can fire before it must cool down increases.  I usually opt for turrets with lower fire rate that can fire several times as long as they need for cooldown.  ^^ 

EDIT:  Reduce the servos too much and eventually it'll lower your DPS, but you have a lot of flexibility for long periods of sustained fire before your DPS drops.

I forgot to mention that servos CAN affect DPS.

Also check your Game Options menu from the main menu (not in-game paused menu) and activate the detailed weapon tooltips if it's not there already. The effects of Overheating as well as battery usage for the applicable weapons when adding Servos and the like are much more apparent
