Stabilizing Property[edit]

A weapon with the stabilizing property is far too heavy or otherwise intensive to use casually, requiring some form of stabilization (whether by setting up a bipod or assuming a specific stance) in order to effectively attack with.

In order to attack with a stabilizing weapon, it must first be set up as, which can be done as an action and lasts until you move more than 5 ft. on a single round. If you can make multiple attacks on your Attack action, you can forgo one or more attacks to set up the weapon. If this weapon uses ammunition, it must be reloaded as an action. A stabilizing melee weapon can not be used if your movement speed is 0.
