On firearms, bipods are commonly used to provide a forward rest and reduce motion. Bipods permit operators to easily rest a weapon on objects, like the ground or a wall, reducing their fatigue and increasing accuracy and stability. Bipods can be of fixed or adjustable length. Some can be tilted and also have their tilting point close to the barrel’s central axis, allowing the weapon to tilt left and right. Once deployed, these provide a more stable shooting position and help control recoil.
It takes one action to deploy a bipod and set the weapon up. Once in position the bipod provides a +1 Shooting bonus. If the hero moves, this benefit is negated and he will have to spend another action to redeploy the bipod.
