They'd have to work differently than a regular gun.
For instance: Difficult to track targets with. Firing the beam weapon freezes the turret (so it can't track) and/or draws enough energy to nerf the ship's maneuvering ability.
Also, the damage ramps up as you paint the target so this would be a weapon that will only hit capital ships.
That's a lot of workarounds to let it remain powerful...
