Rapid Fire Weapon is an engineer modification that can be applied to weapons. It increases a weapon's rate of fire and decreases its reload time, but this comes at the cost of increased jitter and reduced damage per shot.

It is available in 5 grades. Note the variations in values for certain types of weapons in the tables below, primarily Burst Lasers.

Availability

The rapid fire modification can be applied to the following weapons by certain engineers up to the maximum specified grade:
