A simple prefab that can be used just as that, or as an MG position like so:

Someone needs to hack the Bipod off the MG34 and MG42 for this.

take a look at the reference picture, the bipod is still on the MG42, but it looks :kitty: :kitty: somehow
actualy it can be used by the .30cal, too.. so u would have to hack it off there, too.

nice work btw, its something new iīve never seen before. does it have one simple hitbox and/or is it completly bulletproof, so it works like a sandbag?

We used a different tripod on the .30 Cal


Yeah but with the bipod it's look gay :x

you could stick it in or around a spawn and stick a p_mg42 on it with an axis player model behind it holding the p_mg42 and use it as an anti-spawn camping gun, instead of sticking a black stick in a wall.

well, thats right, but dod doesnt make a difference between .30calsīs and MG42īs.
this laffette works just like a sandbag, u could even deploy a BAR or an FG42 on it. i didnt talk about real life.

I think Snake_Eyezī idea is really good, worth a try.

I was pointing out it'd be inaccurate to do so.

Hit boxes all depend on how complicated mappers make the clipping around it. In *theory* you can make it fairly intricate. Thats an idea I've never thought of snake eyes, excellent idea. As for bars, 30cals, fg42's etc being able to use it, in real life you can deploy a bipod on what ever you want....just think of it as an object to drop your bipod onto :)

Great idea, it's nice to see something differant pop up every now and then. I always wanted to use this thing on ye ol' Seg3 map. But that one had an mg42 already attached to it.
