Ghost Recon Wildlands is out today worldwide, and if you are jumping into the game, then you should take some advice before you do. It is Wildland out there, excuse the pun….
Here are some Ghost Recon Wildlands tips to get you started on your adventure through Bolivia.
Visit The Ubisoft Club
Like all Ubisoft games, Ghost Recon Wildlands includes a wide range of free goodies that you can grab off the Uplay store. Some of these are paid too, but they use Uplay Points, so you will probably have a few of them already if you have been an Assassin’s Creed fan as long as we have. There are so many cool things to get from the store, our favorite is the Dying Eath Costume that gives your character a post-apocalyptic look.
Get To Intel Caches
Everything in Ghost Recon Wildlands relies on you finding it first, and the best way to do this is to find an Intel Cache. These people or documents that are found around the land will unlock locations of Skill Points, Supply Raids, weapon parts and more. This means that while you are exploring the gorgeous hills of Bolivia, you will be able to see what is around you, so you can collect it without having to backtrack.
Choose A Role When Playing With Friends
Ghost Recon Wildlands has a very strong emphasis on co-op play. This makes sense given the game’s awesome gameplay, but when you are playing with friends, and when you take the game seriously, take on roles. You do the scanning of the area, while your friend heads into the base to trip the power, and the other silently takes down the enemies one by one.
Master Your Drone
Getting in and out of a situation in Ghost Recon Wildlands all depends on your skills and how well you know your enemy. The most important piece of tech for the start of Ghost Recon Wildlands has to be the drone, as it is vital to tagging your enemies in the base ahead. The drone starts off with poor battery life and terrible range, but as you upgrade it, it gets better and better. If you want to be able to last longer in the air, and full scan a base before heading into it, then the drone skills are important.
Ghost Recon Wildlands uses a range of in-game currencies to upgrade skills with. These range from food, medical supplies, and fuel. All these resources can be found in Ghost Recon Wildlands around every location, and by doing Supply Raids. Whenever you see a green marker on your map, head to it and tag the supplies. To make things easier, like we mentioned before, unlock the Supply Raids by visiting an Intel Cache, these supply raids will see you stealing a vehicle in order to get a few thousand resources. This is by far the best way to get them, but do tag them also, as this adds to your total.
Use An XP Booster
Season Pass owners will get a huge XP booster, while non-owners can pick up a free one from the Ubisoft Club at no additional cost. This booster will grant you an extra 50% XP for 2 hours of game time. The friends you are playing with will get an extra 25% of XP thanks to your booster.
Know When It’s Safe To Move In
When your map glows orange or purple, it means that there are enemies in that area. Only once you have tagged each enemy in that area will the glow go away on the map and it will turn to orange dots. So never enter an area if there is a glow, carry on tagging using your drone until the glow is gone.
