shooting games never have dps.. u die in less than a second u can't even calculate (fail at analogies)
in that situation, assuming the assassin took about...5 seconds to kill the mage, the assassin's dps is:
2000/5=400dps

if the shooting game's damage system is not based on numbers, then it can't be numerically calculated in terms of dps
if each shot does a numerical amount of damage, then yes dps can be calculated
