The Hipfire attachment is an animation modifier. Buying this Attachment changes the firing animation to a new one.
Instead of your avatar firing the M249 normally, your avatar now positions the weapon at their hip while firing.
Using this animation improves your stability, which allows for you to fire with accuracy as if you were ADS'ing. In turn, the range of the M249 is shortened and ADS itself is disabled entirely.
Even with the success of the M249, there were complaints about how unstable the gun could be at times. So R-Brain Hardwork decided to offer courses on how to properly wield the M249. For a fee, of course.
- Before buying Rebel Pose, you should aim to get Hipfire first.
- Compared to the former, the latter has a function.
- If you plan on using the M249 for its range, despite the low accuracy, this is not the Attachment for you.
- You cannot ADS at all while you have this equipped.
- This is recommended on close quarter maps as it significantly improves accuracy.
- Since you have an accuracy bonus, try aiming for headshots which will conserve ammunition and result in quicker kills.
- Hipfire Accuracy increased from 20 to 30.
- Accuracy increased from 0 to 20.
- Hipfire Accuracy decreased from 30 to 20.
- Spread changed to 0.
- This is one of the first two attachments, for the M249, to change an animation.
- However, this is the first animation to have an impact on performance.
- Rebel Pose, while also an animation, is purely only for cosmetic purposes.
- This is the second attachment to have a negative effect, with the first being the K5 Silencer.
- The replacing animation shares similarities to how a player would hold and fire a Minigun.
- The Shotty 12 uses this animation as its idle animation.
- However, it does not effect its stats in any way, as the Shotty 12 does not have sights to begin with nor is there any accuracy boost.
