Shock Rifle 2; A COMPLETELY different weapon

Just found this weapon and after using the basic version I was happy, until when I had no choice but to fight an elite group that had hunted me down and wanted to take some pot shots at it I found out the 2 variant HAS NO CHARGE, despite it's tooltip.

Does this mean that ALL 2 variant weapons can be expected to act like completely different weapons in some fashion or form?

    seems that way, I found what i want to say was a beam 2 and it had a charge time, the beam 1 definitely does NOT.

    Yeah I have found that Beam 2 has a warm up time like the gatling guns. However it looks INSANELY cool, so I don't mind :)

    The Scattergun 2 also fires a full charge instantly, instead of having to charge up. Pretty powerful.

    The Pulse Laser 2 is just crazy, damage to hull and shield is extraordinary, but the weapon functions the same as the Pulse Laser 1.

    So far from my expierience they always behave rather diffrent. Have yet to find a plasma or gatling mark 2 though.

    Plasma 2 is shorter range, slower firing, but MUCH higher damage (literally 200+/sec shield damage).

    I believe the weapon names are currently placeholders, so it's best to assume any "[weapon name] 2" will be completely different from the original one.
