I do it also. But, it reduces the chances of really crazy "critical" hits. Also, some characters are so good at dodging and soaking that it's really hard to hit them with 3-4 hits.

I figured I can still roll for NPCs, but if many NPCs attack one target I just play it like the drone "Swarm" software, I roll once, and add one die for every other NPC that shoot at the same target. That way I can have varient in the rolls, but I also eliminate few NPC turns at the same time.
