Ok, after playing a bit of counterstrike a mate and I get into a heated debate about bipods and if they affect recoil. He says that bipods would reduce recoil due to the vibrations going into the ground, citing that shooting from the hip is less accurate than using a bipod. I’m saying that physics in my limited understanding of newton goes that each action has an equal and opposite reaction. So with the bullet getting fired the opposite reaction goes into the shoulder having nothing to do with the barrel and thus the bipod if deployed.
Anybody want to settle this?
