The Geth Plasma Shotgun consumes 2 ammunition each charged shot. How much more damage does it deal compared to a normal shot?

This is probably testable in the Target Range unless it does too much damage per bullet – Ben Brocka Apr 4 '12 at 19:28
definitely too much damage per bullet – l I Apr 4 '12 at 21:24
Yeah, a normal shot from the GPS kills any of the targets. :3 – Aceofgods Apr 5 '12 at 5:36

I believe it does double damage. The idea behind the charged attack is for Corner-Rushing. You get ready to turn a corner on an enemy, and you charge the gun before you run in so you can finish them quickly without getting hurt so you can claim the cover in a firefight.

Uncharged shots deal damage equal to 45% of a fully charged shot.
In other words charged shots deal 222.(2)% the damage of an uncharged shot.
