Affected weapons

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, the M79 grenade launcher and the auto grenade launchers did not benefit from this perk.[1]
