Nope. It's a passive change to Missile Blast to make it unique from PT Missile Blast.

You can not compete with the other dps classes in top end ranked wz. Trying to do so is an automatic fail. But if from what I've seen so far you can boost overall productivity by about 5-10% if you use your Kolto Missile at the right times. Is that enough to make Merc dps competitive with other dps classes? No. But it is a boost.
dps is not burst

pvper's, stop interchanging these two terms. pvp is about burst - how much damage you can put out in as short a time as possible or how fast can you do xxx amount of damage

when dps is used in a discussion it's about sustainability, which is a pve discussion.
