Charge Time is a weapon stat that is exclusive to Fusion Rifles and Combat Bows (Draw Time, rather than Charge Time, is used for Combat Bows). It is proportional to the weapon's Impact value, meaning that a higher Charge Time will always be paired with higher Impact. Similarly, a lower Charge Time will yield a higher Rounds Per Minute value, and vice-versa.
Internally, the Charge Time of a given Year 2 (Linear) Fusion Rifle and the Draw Time of a given Combat Bow are determined by the weapon's current Charge Time Rating. A low Charge Time Rating forces a long Charge/Draw Time while a high Charge Time Rating forces a short Charge/Draw Time.
Fusion Rifles have their Charge Times determined primarily by their archetype. However, the two Weapon Perks Liquid Coils and Accelerated Coils --- which change Charge Time Rating by, respectively, -10 and +10 --- can rarely cause Fusion Rifles of different archetypes to end up with the same Charge Time, a feat which is not possible for other weapon types.
