Might be too late for a reply...

What does "speed" mean on your list? Is that the time between shots? The time it takes for a character to be out of cover before firing? Something affecting initiative? It doesn't seem to be rate of fire, since you listed that separately.

I'm mostly asking because I saw the Assault Rifle listed as "Medium speed" despite having a full automatic mode, compared to a "High speed" pistol.

Also, what's the practical difference between "semi" and "burst" fire?

Is there a practical difference to the "special" mode or is it the same as "single shot" for heavy weaponry?

Speed is a character attribute that affects initiative and delay. Weapons with Medium or Slow speed designation will have a speed penalty.
In practice burst fire will have one attack more than semi.
The only difference between single shot and special is the actions they unlock. Otherwise you would snipe with a rocket launcher.
