There's a couple reasons. Why waste that much battery power
incernating a single person, when a low setting can still guarentee a
kill but give you enough charge for another five shots. Another
possibility is windup. Perhaps it takes a few seconds for the emitter
to charge to full for the heavy shots, whereas it can cycle faster on
a lower setting.
