|For the melee weapon in Fallout 76, see Bear Arm.|
“Your bear-like arms help you bear bigger arms.”
This perk reduces the weight of heavy weapons.
|1||Heavy Guns weigh 30% less.||0016AF72|
|2||Heavy Guns weigh 60% less.||0016AF73|
|3||Heavy Guns weigh 90% less.||0032016E|
|Heavy Guns weigh 90% less.||00479B22|
This perk modifies the following weapons, as well as their unique variants:
- Due to the fact that Bear Arms only affects the weapons themselves, and heavy weapon ammo is usually also heavy, it might be beneficial to take one of the ammo-weight-reducing perks: Bandolier for "Ballistic" ammo, Batteries Included for "Energy" ammo, and/or Ordnance Express for "Explosive" ammo.
- Prior to patch 184.108.40.206, the M79 grenade launcher and the auto grenade launchers did not benefit from this perk.
- Fallout 76 patch 220.127.116.11 - Items: "Weapons: The M79 Grenade Launcher and the Auto Grenade Launcher are now classified as heavy weapons, and correctly benefit from all heavy weapons perks except Heavy Gunner, as they benefit from Demolitions Expert instead."
