Hey, i got the arma 3 alpha and im trying to use the bipod in some of the weapons but i still didn't get how i use the Bipod? i searched for controls in-game and topics in forums for how to use the bipod in arma 3 and i didn't find anything about it.

So can someone help me how i can use the bipod?

You can't. At least, not yet.

Probably have to install ACE for cool things like this.

Arma 1 had weapons with bipods that couldn't be used, like in A2. Sadly.

When ACE3 comes out for Arma3 then you can use shift + space :)

It's an alpha - Guess what - Not everything is functional! It's not stupid, you're just being unreasonably impatient.

It'll be in A3 for sure. They just cant be that numb at BIS when they provide actually bi-pod models and implement no use for them :D And I heard that even some dev's are very interested in having this little feature, so we would just have to wait out a biiiiiiiiit more guys ;)

Can the same be said of previous titles with bipods? ;) Yeah I remember Dwarden saying something of the like, but I also remember some Devs passing it off saying it's not a needed feature.

Since a tonne of mods have implemented it, then it would sure be lazy of BIS if they do not.

Considering even Bf3 lets you use a bipod i think it would be foolish not to have that feature in Arma 3.

Wow, some of you guys actually think the bipod will serve a purpose other than purely aesthetical (is that a word)? I'm talking to you guys who've been around since at least ArmA 2. We know BIS by now. They aren't going to add something like that in because it's not important enough. Now, I'd be willing to believe that bipods would serve a purpose if BIS had made bottom rail attachments customizable (your grenade launchers and foregrips). But they didn't do that. Don't hold out hope for this feature. And, yeah, as Viper said, don't compare ArmA 3 to BF3 or even think that Arma 3 is supposed to be BF3. Don't even play the game as a substitute for BF3. Not the same genre, not the same type of game, and if you're expecting BF3 you'll be disappointed.

No one is expecting a substitute for BF3. BF4 (and all DLCs) is right around the corner for that.
The point is, why an "arcade" shooter have such basic feature that doesn't quite fit the gun'n'run gameplay there, while a milsim with focus in infantry doesn't have it.

MGs have a huge impact in squad tactics, both on defense and offense, and right now they are kind of useless because you need to go prone (aka all grass in your face) to use MGs in the right way.

I don't expect full pivot thing or dedicated animations for deployed weapons, but totally ignoring will not cut this time.
BI had some tricks unannounced for the Alpha (minor things, like the holographic sight that have been asked for so long) who knows what is comming.

play ro2 then get back to us. bipods are absolutely essential for accurate crouched shots behind solid cover. real life firefights do not involve spray and praying at the enemy. every shot counts and stability matters.

also, as an aside, aesthetics are hugely important as well.

It's actually pretty funny watching the fanboys freak the heck out when you mention any other game that's not a Mil-sim in comparison to arma.

I'm going to start doing it more just for lols.
