Weapon attachments are any accessories or devices that attach to a firearm in order to add, improve or modify the weapon's functionality or performance.

Sights and Optics
- The rifle seems to be based on its real life counterpart Steyr Scout Rifle, and is referenced as such in the files. The Steyr Scout notably has a functional bipod built into the body, however this is not functional in-game.
- The Pioneer was previously shown as a work-in-progress on Feb 16, 2016.
- The Pioneer was previously found in the files to be chambered in .308 Winchester, but was changed to 5.56mm at some point during patch 0.61. Additionally the rifle was previously found in the files to have green furniture, whereas the final weapon is in black.
- The two map-specific variations of the base weapon feature small metal decorations with either a Chernarussian coat of arms or Livonian police emblem engraved. The base model has smooth decorations. These are also not featured on the real life counterpart of the rifle.
