Ghost Recon Wildlands Tips and Tricks

Ghost Recon Wildlands is out and gamers are flooding into the land of Bolivia to try and take down the infamous Santa Blanca cartel, headed by the merciless El Sueño. It’s a dangerous land out there, filled with UNIDAD soldiers, replete with all manner of guns and vehicles, so we thought we’d give you a helping hand and deliver a few of our own Ghost Recon Wildlands Tips and Tricks.

Use Your Drone

Ghost Recon Wildlands is all about using your tools to better attack the enemy. One of these pieces of equipment is the drone. This little device can be released whenever you want, and acts as a second pair of eyes – your literal eyes in the sky!

When attacking an enemy position, release your drone and have a look around. It will automatically spot enemies for you, saving you the trouble of walking around an entire compound. Be careful, because some locations have jammers that prevent the operation of the drone, you’ll need to take these out first before you can use your trusty aerial tech!

Command Your AI Teammates

While Ghost Recon Wildlands is best played with friends, any solo players out there should take full advantage of the AI teammates. These burly men aren’t just there to look mean, they can be commanded to assist you in combat.

Your teammates can be told to fire on position, hold a location, and even regroup. Using these commands during a combat situation will greatly improve your chances of defeating your enemy.

Don’t forget there is a large faction of rebels fighting the cartel in Bolivia, and they are there to help you! The rebels can support your efforts by dropping off vehicles of increasing strength and can even mortar a designated area.

Play With Friends

One of the best tips for playing Ghost Recon Wildlands is to play with friends. The cooperative nature of Ghost Recon Wildlands lends itself to an exhilarating experience. There’s nothing more enjoyable than sneaking into a heavily defended compound with your best friends in an attempt to claim some of the best weapons in the game.

Communicate with Your Friends!

Ghost Recon Wildlands Tips and Tricks Communicate

Arguably the most important tip to remember when playing Ghost Recon Wildlands, especially on Extreme difficulty, is to communicate with your friends. While coordinating with your best buds to execute the baddest tactical strike of all time is certainly exhilarating, it’s when you fail miserably in the attempt and the roasting starts —that’s when the real magic happens.

Listen to Your Surroundings

Ghost Recon Wildlands Tips and Tricks Listen to Your Surroundings

Though communication is key, you should also remember to listen your surroundings. As we mentioned in our article, 5 Reasons You’ll Love Ghost Recon Wildlands, the audio design is superb. Take some time out from killing cartel drug lords to listen to the environment.

The Turtle Beach Elite Pro with the Tactical Audio Controller is one such headset combo that will be able to deliver to your ears the crisp audio cues needed to judge your surroundings. This precision is thanks to the cutting-edge audio technology of DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound and Superhuman Hearing.

This audio precision is extremely important in games like Ghost Recon Wildlands, especially when infiltrating a location that has a jammer, preventing you from gaining early information about enemy locations. With the Elite Pro and TAC, you’ll be able to pinpoint the location of enemy soldiers before you even see them!

Use Stealth

Ghost Recon Wildlands Tips and Tricks Stealth

Ghost Recon Wildlands is about a team of Ghosts infiltrating a narc-state in Bolivia. A Ghost is inherently stealthy, and so you should always attempt to stay low and out of sight wherever possible. By utilizing silent strategies, you will be able to better infiltrate enemy positions and collect important items, such as weapons and data.

Be sure to stick to the shadows and always search for the path of least resistance into an enemy encampment. By reducing the enemy encounters, you will increase your chances of success. Whenever you approach a compound, look for points that could offer valuable protection, such as walls, crates, cars and buildings. These objects also double as handy places to hide behind to avoid unwanted eyes.

Unlock Weapons

Ghost Recon Tips and Tricks Weapon Crates

Finally, the very best tip for Ghost Recon Wildlands is to spend time unlocking weapons. There are dozens of weapons to unlock in Ghost Recon Wildlands and each of them sound and feel amazing. By tracking down extra assault rifles, sniper rifles, shotguns, and pistols, you’ll increase your lethality and customize your character to match your desired playstyle. Each province has a variety of weapons you can unlock, so take your time searching the ARMERIA buildings for weapon crates to increase your arsenal.

Ghost Recon Wildlands is another phenomenal release by Ubisoft, offering gamers an immersive open-world experience full of intense combat. As you dive into the fictional story that takes place in Bolivia, remember the above tips as you track down the head of the Santa Blanc cartel, El Sueño.
