This is one of the several veteran factors that control the bonuses given by VeteranAbilities and EliteAbilities. VeteranROF alters the ROF of the Primary and Secondary, and (in case of EliteAbilities=ROF) Elite weapons of units that benefit from the ROF promotional bonus. Contrary to popular belief, these bonuses do not stack, meaning that a ROF elite bonus will not further modify the rate of fire of a unit with a ROF veteran bonus.

In Tiberian Sun and Firestorm

VeteranROF acts as a divisor to ROF:

[New ROF] = ROF / (1.0 + VeteranROF)

Example: if the weapon's ROF is 30, then it would be decreased to 25 (assuming VeteranROF=0.2).

30 / (1.0 + 0.2) = 25

In Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge

Like most of the other veteran factors, VeteranROF has been simplified; it is now a straight multiplier to ROF.

Example: if the weapon's ROF is 20, then it would be decreased to 12 (assuming VeteranROF=0.6).

20 * 0.6 = 12.

Note: Since ROF is really the delay between shots, smaller numbers yield faster firing. Values of VeteranROF greater than 1.0 actually decrease the firing rate of the unit.

VeteranROF has no effect if the weapon uses a sonic wave or has an attached particle system.
