Ghost Recon: Wildlands Guide: 10 Tips For Beginners
Ghost Recon: Wildlands features a truly massive world that is loaded with things to do, and at first it can be a little overwhelming. With 21 huge areas that are freely explorable and lots of points of interest to seek out along the way, it’s safe to say that you’ll have plenty to do. This guide will get you started on the right foot so that your beginning hours are a little less painful.
Use Your Tacmap
The game’s interpretation of Bolivia is absolutely massive and stunning from a visual standpoint, and using the Tacmap regularly is vital to being able to navigate it properly. When you first open up the Tacmap you’ll notice that most of the areas are completely dark outside of a few major intel locations, and you’ll want to hunt those spots down first. Seeking those out will open up new missions for you to progress the story, which will also lead you to other points of interest that will fill out the map further.
You’ll also be able to see a region’s difficulty when viewing it from the Tacmap, which is a good idea to do before wandering into the next area. While the game allows you to explore everything the world has to offer in whichever order you like, if you’re not accustomed to these kinds of games then you’ll likely want to focus on the lower difficulty areas first.
Ghost Squad Commands
If you’re playing solo then it will be up to you to guide the other 3 AI-controlled members of the Ghost squad, which can be a little shaky depending on what you’re trying to do. If you’re taking a guns blazing approach then they’ll put up a good fight, and you can order them to fire if they aren’t already from the Ghost Squad command wheel. You can also order them to go to a specific location to have them go into battle before you, or have them come back to you if they’re too far away.
However, those who are really trying to take a stealth approach may find that it works better to have them stay behind with the hold command. They do tend to get in trouble when you’re trying to be sneaky, so if you find that happening too much just have them stay in a hiding spot while you go get the work done.
Know Your Enemies
There are two main groups of enemies that you will have to face in Wildlands, and they are the Santa Blanca cartel and the Unidad soldiers. Santa Blanca cartel members and Unidad soldiers are marked by orange and purple spots on the Tacmap, respectively. The Santa Blanca cartel members are easy enough to deal with as they go down quickly and are only difficult in groups. It’s the Unidad soldiers that you really want to watch out for, as they’re heavily armored and have weapons that can do a lot of damage. Killing them in the middle of a battle will also increase their level of alertness and cause more powerful soldiers to come after you, so it’s best to avoid them entirely or take them out outside of battle to avoid more being called in. Finally, these two groups may just end up fighting each other during any particular shootout, and if that happens then it’s a perfect opportunity for you to do what you need to while they’re distracted.
Note the Time of Day
Wildlands features a day/night cycle that not only shows off the game’s impressive visuals, but also has some very important gameplay uses. While tackling an enemy compound during the day is fine for a guns blazing approach, those who are aiming to take a stealth approach will be better-suited waiting until nighttime. You’ll be harder to spot as you sneak around enemies, and thanks to your night vision goggles you’ll be able to maneuver at night without any issues.
Use Your Suppressors
Each of the guns in Wildlands has the option for you to add a suppressor to it, which is done by pressing up on the dpad when aiming down sights. You should almost always have your suppressor equipped, as doing so will allow you to take out enemies without alerting others nearby. This is vital for a stealth approach, but even if you aren’t trying to be sneaky it’s a good way to get the first strike to start a big shootout. For those who are going stealth, be sure that other enemies aren’t currently looking in the direction of the enemy you’re about to kill, because they will be alerted with or without an equipped suppressor if they see the person go down.
Use Your Drone
The drone is an absolute must for anyone who is looking to take things more tactfully in Wildlands, as it will allow you to scope out a compound and give you a better idea of what to expect before going in. You’ll want to get as close to the compound as you can before sending out the drone, because it has a limited range at first that you can then upgrade with skill points. Send it around the area to try and tag as many enemies that you’re in range of, while also noting all of the major areas and points of interest that you may need to go to. As you upgrade the drone you’ll be able to increase its battery and speed, while also making it be able to cause a noise distraction.
As you make your way through the game’s world you’ll see a variety of different objects that will allow you to tag them for the rebels to come and pick up. Doing this is quick and comes highly recommended, as it will net you resources to unlock new skills.
As you enter more and more regions in Bolivia you’ll find that it’s taking longer and longer to get back to places you were before, and that’s where the game’s fast travel system comes into play. You can fast travel via Rally Points that are located on the Tacmap, though you can only fast travel when you’re outside of combat. More and more of these Rally Points will open up as you explore the game’s world, which is a huge time saver.
Upgrade Your Character
As you make your way through the game you will accumulate XP, skill points and supply caches that all go towards being able to improve your skills. There are five skill categories in total to choose from, and each has several areas for you to improve. You’ll want to get the early Drone and Physical upgrades first, which will allow you to scope out enemy areas more easily and take more damage from the inevitable shootouts. Just make sure that you’re regularly seeking out skill points and supply caches while navigating through any given area, as this will allow you to upgrade your skills at a steady clip and will make life easier when starting out.
While Wildlands can be played alone, it’s at its best when you can manage to get together a good team. This is especially the case for those looking to go through the game tactfully, as each member of the team can have their own roles in a way that isn’t possible with the AI. It’s always great to have one or two teammates stay back to provide sniper support from afar, then having the remaining teammates go in to take out enemies indoors or go for the objectives. If you or a teammate goes down during a battle then you will be able to revive them once, though if it happens again during the same fight then you’ll fail the mission. You’ll find that playing with others is a lot more fun than playing solo before long, so either set up a group or head into matchmaking whenever you can.

Attack of the Fanboy / GAME GUIDES / Ghost Recon: Wildlands Guide: 10 Tips For Beginners
12 things I wish I knew before playing Ghost Recon Wildlands
We break down safely tagging supplies, helmet deception, the power of going prone, and more.
Ghost Recon Wildlands isn't the open world series revival we were hoping for, but it's still a pretty good co-op game if you've got a reliable group of friends. If you're running low on trustworthy buddies or feel a bit in over your head in Wildlands' massive world, don't sweat it. Use these tips to help you get your expensive tactically armored feet under you.
Find one of the best sniper rifles in the game from the moment you start playing with our guide.
Helmets don't stop bullets
Wildlands is more of a simulation than most open world adventures. Common design tropes teach us that a soldier wearing a helmet is capable of withstanding more than one headshot. Typically, the first bullet blasts off the helmet—don't think about the logistics of this—leaving the guard unprotected for a follow-up shot.
Not in Wildlands. For a while, my infiltration plans were thrown off by helmeted guards, before I realised that a single headshot took them down just as easily as their bald brethren.
If you're detected, there's still hope
If you're seen, or if a guard notices a dead body, you'll enter one of the alert states—either Hunted or Engaged. These aren't binary phases, though. If an enemy spots you, you've got a split second to kill him before his return fire alerts nearby guards. If you miss a shot, giving away your position, you've got time to take a second and save the situation.
It's even possible to take out more guards than a standard Sync Shot would allow. If a square contains five guards, but you can only Sync kill three, taking out the remaining two quickly enough will cancel the Hunted state and keep you undetected. The only exception is for missions that explicitly state you can't be seen.
Is a guard about to spot you? Is a helicopter hovering overhead? Is that sniper turning your way? Tap 'C' to go prone, and it will significantly reduce your visibility, helping you stay unseen in otherwise hopeless situations.
( Not that it's a key binding we encourage , mind you.)
Picked something up? Press 'Ctrl'
This is dumb, but if you tag resources or pick up a skill point while crouching, you'll be reset to standing once the animation finishes. If you're deep in enemy territory, remember to press the crouch key again before you go sprinting off like a big, clumsy idiot, attracting everyone's attention and getting yourself killed.
OK, I confess. I've only added this tip in the hope Ubisoft will fix it in the next patch.
Always go blue when using intel
When you first enter an area, you'll see exclamation marks on the minimap denoting minor intel. These mark new events and items on your map—raids, rebel ops, skills and weapons. The rebel op sidequest unlocks the ability to call in resistance fighters and support—rarely that useful. The Raids offer more resources, which you'll already be collecting at a good rate. But skills, weapons and attachments are almost always useful—even just for expanding your potential tactical options. When you find some minor intel, be sure to pick up the middle, blue option first. And, if you see a blue icon on the minimap, always check it out.
Leave no supply behind
A skill point isn't enough to unlock new abilities. You'll also need resources, picked up from supplies that are marked green on your minimap. There are loads of these to be found, and so you'll naturally find them in the outposts you are constantly infiltrating. Always grab them, even if you think you've got loads. You'll be thankful for it when you've progressed to the expensive advanced skills.
Do your reconnaissance
I don't know if you've noticed, but the word 'Recon' is in the title of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands.* And Recon you should: scout each location thoroughly before you enter. You get a heatmap of guard locations by default, but that isn't enough information to successfully enter unseen. Grab a few drone and binocular upgrades, and take the time to tag threats, items and other interesting features.
*The word Tom is also in the title, but doesn't appear to be relevant.
Shoot the alarms
One of the worse situations you can find yourself in is a firefight in a hostile base as the alarm is blaring—signalling to reinforcements that they should drive on up. Unlike in Far Cry, you can shoot alarm panels from afar without anybody becoming suspicious. Make this a priority. With the alarms disabled, even a messy infiltration becomes easier to contain.
Wait until night
Struggling with a mission? Wait until it's nighttime, or go in as the rain starts pouring down. Despite the AI in Wildlands being questionable, they do respond well to the environment—going to sleep at night, or taking shelter in buildings during a shower. This should reduce the number of patrolling guards, who will also have lower visibility. Hit 'N', and you'll enable Night Vision, and an optional skill gives you access to Thermal Goggles, too. Just take care around sleeping guards. Shoot one, and you'll likely wake his nearby friends.
You don't need to kill everyone
It can be tempting to assume you should clear out a base before completing your objective. Sometimes, though, this is a mistake. By being so methodical you increase your risk of being spotted—bad in normal missions, but disastrous in the ones that ask you not to be detected. Ensure a clear path from your insertion point to the objective, and then do what you're there to do—leaving the other guards none the wiser.
If you're playing solo…
You don't need to wait for your squadmates to enter your car, or even secure a four-seater for them to all pile in. Just drive off in whatever vehicle you fancy, and your squad will teleport into your vehicle. If there isn't space, they'll be left behind, but teleport to you whenever you exit the vehicle.
Off-roading is fun
The minimap's GPS would have you follow Bolivia's twisty, turny roads. But the network of dirt tracks are complicated enough that you can add many more miles to your journey. Just point in a direction and go—most of the vehicles are tough, rugged off-roaders, and able to handle steep climbs and rock formations. Alternatively, drive by some bases, and check the minimap to see if they're hiding a helicopter. It's an easier ride, and, as long as you land a few hundred meters from your mission point, they'll be none the wiser.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Beginner’s Guide with Tips and Tricks
Learn how to gather supplies, use fast travel points, assign skills, and drive vehicles in this beginner's guide to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands , is officially out. And if you haven’t played the two beta tests that preceded the release, then many things about this Ubisoft game will be new to you. The world of Wildlands is huge, and there are a lot of things to consider when you’re first starting out.
This beginner’s guide will give you the most important tips on how to make the best out of each mission, and how to finish the game without dying too often. Here’s what you need to do after you’ve created your character.
Find and Gather Supplies
Supplies are necessary for you to be able to unlock character skills. There are four types of supplies in Wildlands : Food, Medicine, Fuel, and Comms.
The supplies can be found scattered around the enemy territories inside barrels, crates, and various caches. You can leave markers tagging the supply locations, so that the rebels can get them later — this‘ll give you bonus points.
However, the best way to obtain lots of supplies at once is by accomplishing supply missions that get unlocked after you collect intel from the enemies. These supply locations will be tagged on your TACMAP.
You can also intercept the cartel’s trucks that carry lots of supplies. These types of side missions may grant you up to 2,500 units, and the further you progress the more supplies you will need to upgrade your character.
Upgrade Skills According to Your Playstyle
The character’s skills tree allows you to ugrade your Weapons, Drone, Items, Physicality, and Squad. You need to figure out what kind of playstyle suits you the best, and according to that you can choose the right skills.
- You can go a full-on offensive mode, and it would be wise to unlock a Grenade Launcher that will allow you to destroy vehicles at once.
- On the other hand, you can choose being stealthy, and in this case upgrading your Suppressor would be a better solution.
- Again, if you choose to be offensive, then unlock the C4 explosive in your Items skills tree, and use it to your advantage in various situations.
- But if there is a need to approach the enemy lines in an unexpected way, then choose Parachute and use it to jump off the helicopter.
- Physical traits such as Stamina and Health are very important, but if you get yourself under the fire far too often, consider upgrading the Bullet Resistance skill .
- If you want to play stealthy, but you feel like you still need time to learn, then choose the Detection skill .
- In case you rely strongly on information about the enemies in the area before you charge at them, then you will be using your surveillance drone quite often.
- Be sure to upgrade the Range and the Mark Area of your drone — both of these skills will give you more information about the territory of your interest.
- Lastly, working with your teammates together is an excellent way to efficiently take down enemies — the Extra Sync Shot is what you will need here.
Unlock Fast Travel Points
The map in Ghost Recon: Wildlands is absolutely huge, and finding and unlocking fast travel points will make your walkthrough much easier . Every province of Bolivia has them — they’re called Rally Points, and indicated as white houses with flags on the TACMAP. However, they need to be discovered first.
Just follow the main campaign sequence and you will be directed at new locations. As soon as you stumble upon an active fast travel point, the game will immediately announce and tag it for you on the map.
But there are a few things to know before you can use this feature:
- You can fast travel only between the points that you have unlocked.
- You can’t use fast travel points while in combat or when you are being detected by the enemies.
- In order to fast travel, open the TACMAP and click on the white house of your destination.
Travelling by Land, Water and Air
Rally Points are great, but there is still a lot of driving involved in Ghost Recon: Wildlands . There are 60 vehicle types in the game, but you will mostly travel on land using cars and motorbikes.
While driving you need to know a few things:
- Don’t try to use shortcuts in Bolivia — usually it leads to overturns and fatal vehicle damage.
- Don’t override civilians — the game can punish you for that (this is not GTA ).
- Don’t come too close to the enemy base on your vehicle — the sound of the engine may spur the enemies.
When you need to cover huge distances, but you still haven’t discovered too many fast travel points, consider using a helicopter or an airplane . It’s not very convenient in terms of controls, but you will get to any place you need much, much faster. The aircrafts can be located on airfields and large open areas.
And lastly, some of the Santa Blanca facilities will be located on water, but don’t worry — there is always a boat waiting for you somewhere on the shore.

10 Things We Wish We Knew Before Starting Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Here are some tips to help you get started in Ghost Recon: Wildlands!
Ghost Recon: Wildlands was somewhat of a reboot for the series when it was released in 2017 and takes the grounded, tactical-shooter formula to a massive open world.
Related: The Best Open-World Games Of All Time, Ranked
The beautiful tropical map is based on a fictional version of a cartel-infested Bolivia and is incredibly large . You and your squad of Ghosts are tasked with taking out a series of unpleasant underbosses before getting to the big bad of the game, El Sueño. As with most Ubisoft open worlds, there is a staggering number of outposts to infiltrate, abilities to unlock, weapons to experiment with, and collectibles to discover. It can be a little overwhelming to get your head around at first, so here are a few helpful things that will help you get started in Wildand’s huge open world.
10 Choose Your Skills Wisely
Wildlands contains a surprisingly deep and varied level of customisation when it comes to the skills and attributes of your character. There are a lot of options to play with, so it’s important to pick and choose the skills that will make you the most effective soldier on the battlefield.
There are some essential skills to upgrade early, such as increased stamina for being able to cover more ground on foot , a parachute for avoiding fall damage when skydiving , and a higher ammo capacity to keep you mowing down your enemies for longer. There are also epic skills that give you a huge boost to certain abilities. These include a buff to long-range accuracy, faster healing of injuries, and an increased explosion radius, and are all great to get early on.
9 The Drone Is Your Best Friend
Drones are nothing new for modern tactical shooters and have been a fundamental gameplay mechanic in many Ubisoft-constructed open worlds. They are incredibly useful for scouting ahead and getting a birds-eye view of an outpost to plan the next stage of your attack.
It’s really important to pump some skill points into your drone as early as you can - increasing its battery and range will allow you to scout the cartel for longer periods and from further away without disconnecting. It’s important to get these basics down, but you can later increase its offensive capabilities with EMP and explosive upgrades that will give you more of an edge as you liberate Bolivia.
8 Unlock The Underbarrel Grenade Launcher
Some of the most annoyingly overpowered enemies in the game are the helicopters that will quickly rain down hell on you and your squad. If you don’t have a high-powered sniper rifle on hand, the grenade launcher attachment is an excellent early game counter to those pesky air vehicles.
Related: Best Rocket Launchers In Video Games, Ranked
Unlocked through the ‘weapons’ skill tree, the underbarrel grenade launcher hurls a grenade in an arc at your target . With a bit of practice, you’ll be taking out helis in no time, and it’s also just a good all-around explosive option for when things get a bit hairy mid-firefight. Just make sure the barrel is loaded.
7 Fully Upgrade The Sync Shot As Soon As Possible
The sync shot ability has become a Tom Clancy staple over the years and is something that should not be overlooked. Fully upgrading the ability will allow each of your three AI teammates to line up a shot and, on your command, immediately take out any enemy of your choosing .
As long as they are within a line of sight, this allows up to four enemies to be taken out at once when you also lock a target within your crosshairs. This is extremely useful for clearing out an outpost in a stealthy way and is incredibly satisfying when you pull it off.
6 Discover As Many Rally Points As You Can
The game’s map is exceptionally large for a Ghost Recon game , containing 21 regions and 11 ecosystems, each with its climates and towns to explore. It’s so big that it can sometimes be a drag travelling from mission to mission, as the distances you have to cover are usually so vast.
Thankfully Wildlands has fast travel , which can be unlocked as you discover Rally Points. Once you’ve visited a Rally Point you can fast travel to it , and they are a useful way of cutting out the tedium of getting from one side of the map to the other. Be sure to unlock as many as you can.
5 Don’t Ignore Collectibles
While playing through missions and exploring the open world, you will come across a variety of collectibles that you will need to get stronger and progress through the game.
You shouldn’t avoid picking up the collectibles when you find them , as they give you access to new weapons for gameplay variety, kingslayer files for more information on the bosses you are trying to take out, and important intel that will unlock main story missions. They will also give you a nice chunk of XP when you pick them up, which is always welcome
4 Prioritise Blue Intel
The exclamation points you see on your minimap denote the various forms of intel you can unlock as you explore. When you reach them, you’ll be given a choice between locating Rebel Ops and Supply Raids, which are green, or Skill Points, which are blue.
Related: The Best Assault Rifles In Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Ranked
The Raids offer you more opportunities to gain resources, and the Rebel Ops missions will allow you to call in support from your rebel allies. While useful, these pale in comparison to the various skills, weapons, and attachments you can find with the blue ‘Skill Points’ intel . Prioritising these will allow you to level your character and get high-quality gear at a faster rate.
3 Tag Resources For Greater Rewards
As you explore Bolivia you’ll come across a bunch of supplies dotted around the towns, bunkers, and outposts. It’s important not to ignore these , as they can net you decent rewards that will help you level your character.
You’ll want to look out for green icons on the minimap, and they can be seen shining as barrels, crates, and boxes out in the world. Interacting with them will give you a certain amount of either food, communications, fuel, or medicine and can each be used as a way of purchasing and upgrading your skills - vital for taking down the cartel with ease.
2 Gather Information By Talking To Civilians And Interrogating Enemies
One of the most effective ways of gathering intel is by either violently interrogating your enemies , or politely talking to random civilians . When gathering intel in this way, you will be given the location of various collectibles and resources to help you along your journey.

Whichever way you choose, it is always best to be out of combat and in a relatively safe area. If in danger, you risk the chance of the NPC being killed and all of that sweet loot being lost. Even worse, if you lose a key enemy while interrogating them, you will fail the mission and have to restart, which is an absolute bummer for everyone involved.
1 You Only Have To Clear Two Provinces To Reach El Sueño
In the game, you have to kill the lesser leaders, Buchons, underbosses, and the four department heads before being given the chance to take out the ‘boss of bosses,' El Sueño. For a game as large as Wildlands, going through all of this content can be very time-consuming. You may find yourself a little burnt out with all the outposts and activities to complete along the way.
Luckily, it turns out that you don’t need to eliminate every single Buchon and boss to get to the big bad of the game . You only have to take out two provinces to reach the final boss and reach the game’s ending. Doing so will get you a slightly different ending than if you went through all the game’s content, but it’s good to know for those wanting to reach the end without committing too much of their time.

When playing with other players online, everyone gains the ability to use fast travel on the positions of other players. This is helpful when someone in the group does not have any Rally Points opened up in the area.
You have the option to fast travel on teammate positions when you use your Drone or Binoculars and look towards the icon of another player. This will prompt the option to use fast travel if you aren't engaged in combat or being hunted.
Progressing the Story in Multiplayer
When playing multiplayer online, you can get credit for any mission that you complete. This can help you complete most missions faster and fill up your Santa Blanca cartel grid to unlock others. You can even be part of missions you haven't unlocked in your own solo game and complete them on your grid when you successfully finish.
If you find yourself struggling to complete missios alone, partnering up with others online can make them easier.

Development [ ]
Wildlands was developed by Ubisoft Paris in collaboration with several other studios. Ghost Recon Wildlands was announced at E3 2015 to a crowd of nearly 52,000. The reveal displayed a mission pitting the players against "White Hat" at his Bolivian drug lab. At the show, it won 25 awards from the media. The game features singleplayer and up to four-player co-op, along with a 4v4 PvP mode called " Ghost War ", that had a beta in September 2017 and released fully in October 2017. The game was in development for multiple years, and Ubisoft has stated that it is moving the series "in a new direction". The producers wanted shades of grey along the story, not just simple good-vs-evil.
An interview with the Lead Game Designer (Dominic Butler) and Senior Producer revealed that it is set in the near future - about four years from now.  The team has done significant research to make this entry into the "Clancyverse", and to create one of the series "What If" entries. This includes visiting Bolivia and conferring with subject matter experts. Lead artist Benoit Martinez's team created thousands of pictures as part of creating the open world.
Along with the "What If" aspect, the developers asked what would happen if a single cartel seized power over the entirety of the cocaine trade. It allows for a group of special ops soldiers to go behind enemy lines and break the ties between corrupt government and the cartel. Additionally, the map is set up so certain operations are more common along parts of the map, allowing players to set up mini-story arcs.
Gameplay [ ]
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is an open world, tactical shooter utilizing a third person perspective. The game will not feature the futuristic setting used in Advanced Warfighter and Future Soldier , but will instead adopt a modern-day setting, similar to the original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon . As a result, the equipment featured in the game will be based on weapons and gear commonly used by military forces around the world. However, the game will feature some original equipment, such as UAV Drones that can be used to tag and show the highlighted enemies and objectives. The game will be the first entry to feature an open world, which includes nine different types of terrain, such as mountains, forests, desert, salt flats and will also introduce dynamic weather system and a day-night cycle. The map size is 440km².
Wildlands features 21 Provinces to explore as they go about disrupting the Santa Blanca Cartel. The game features 36 cartel buchons (including DLCs) which can be taken down as the player chooses before drawing out the leader. The game will also feature a total of 114 missions for players to complete. Players will have to disrupt two of the four aspects (Security, Influence, Smuggling, and Production) of the cartel. Completing all four will unlock an alternate ending.
When completing missions, players can reach the location where the mission starts through a variety of ways. Players can parachute from a helicopter, walk overland, boat, or drive towards their objectives. Players are allowed to use multiple ways to complete objectives, such as utilizing stealth, melee combat, or using the long-ranged or short-ranged weapons provided in the game. Between missions, players are free to explore the game's world, and the game will feature outposts that can be taken down by players.
The game has brought back Gunsmith mode, and parts are collected throughout the world map. Each weapon is heavily customizable, with the exception of the Legendary weapons acquired by defeating the bosses.
When not completing missions, players can interact, and build friendly or hostile relationships with other non-playable characters, such as the citizens, officials or the rebels of the world. These interactions require strategy, as interactions will bring consequences and impact the game's world, and change how players can achieve their objectives. Players can also gain experience points to level up, as character and gear customization is also available in the game.
The game features four-player co-operative multiplayer, in which players can be joined by three other players to explore the game's world and to complete campaign's mission. The game can also be played solo, in which the player will be accompanied by three AI teammates, which the player can give orders to.
Operation Kingslayer [ ]
In 2019, the Santa Blanca drug cartel tortured DEA special agent Ricardo "Ricky" Sandoval to death, who had been undercover in their organization for 6 years, and bombed the U.S. embassy in La Paz, injuring two U.S. Marines. these actions upgrade their status from simple narcos to narco-terrorists and puts them near the top of a threat list.
The cartel is led by the vicious killer El Sueño , along with The Beauty Queen (Smuggling), El Yayo (Production), El Muro (Security) and El Cardenal (Influence). The cartel has also corrupted the Bolivian Government so much to the core that the Government cannot handle them and cannot call for any external help. The cartel mainly deals in the production and distribution of cocaine and other drugs, and their influence is spreading to other countries. Therefore they need to break the connection between them and the Bolivian government.
In order to stop the problem the CIA , DEA , and JSOC have decided to send the Ghosts , an elite unit of the U.S. Military, as part of Operation Kingslayer . The team sent in consists of Nomad ( Ghost Lead and Support Specialist), Weaver (Team Sniper and Weapons Specialist), Holt (Team Engineer and Drone Specialist) and Midas (Team Combat Specialist and Vehicle Engineer). The team is supervised by CIA agent Karen Bowman .
The Ghosts are brought into Bolivia by helicopter. When they land in the province of Itacua , they meet " Pac Katari ", leader of the Kataris 26 , the only resistance against Santa Blanca. He gives them their first mission - to recover Amaru , one of the group's founding members, who has been captured by Santa Blanca.
The Ghosts rescue Amaru in exchange for information about the people who tortured Sandoval. These are revealed to be La Yuri and El Polito , Santa Blanca's chief doctors and torturers, and devoted lovers of each other.
The Ghosts infiltrate FOB Armadillo, the local base of UNIDAD (a Bolivian special forces organization originally set up to combat drug cartels but now on Santa Blanca's payroll and turning a blind eye to their activities), and interrogate the base's commander. They force him to call El Polito and request that he and La Yuri return to Itacua.
Having lured the duo back to Itacua, the Ghosts determine their exact location by infiltrating a Santa Blanca camp and stealing El Polito's car. Their analysts examine its GPS history and locate El Polito and La Yuri at a mountain hunting lodge.
The Ghosts then go after El Polito and La Yuri. They locate them in the basement of their hunting lodge, torturing a prisoner. Both are killed by the Ghosts along with their guards, much to Bowman's satisfaction.
The Ghosts then go to Ocoro to get information on the location of El Yayo.
Montuyoc [ ]
The Ghosts then move to continue their assault against the Santa Blanca's Security Pillar. They move into Montuyoc, site of the cartel's sicario training camp.
They discover that El Muro chose a former Army Ranger by the name of Carl Bookhart as his head of training. The Ghosts then track and eliminate Carl Bookhart in an underground mining facility.
La Cruz [ ]
The Ghosts then go to La Cruz to kill La Plaga .
Buchons [ ]
After every VIP of each operations of the Santa Blanca cartel have been dealt with, the buchon of each branch will be available for takedown.
El Sueño's Proposition [ ]
After taking down the first operation of the cartel, El Sueño invites the Ghosts to a meeting. The Ghosts plan on killing him, but Sueño leaves a message: inviting them to join him. When they answer the cellphone left there, Nomad swears to kill the cartel boss.
End of the Dream [ ]
Note: Depending on whether or not the player has completed the two necessary Cartel operations or taken down all four heads, the ending will change. Though regardless of that, both endings can be watched back-to-back if the cartel's operations have been destabilized by 100%.
Nomad receives word that Pac Katari has spotted El Sueno at the Sueño masoleum. Nomad receives coordinates for a meeting, but finds Amaru dead by Incan ruins. Nomad contacts Bowman only for the call to be abrubtly cut off. The Ghosts reach Bowman's location and find her in a safehouse knocked on the ground. Bowman explains that the Kataris 26 have betrayed the Ghosts and Pac Katari is attempting to martyr El Sueño.
Nomad races against time to the masoleum while getting chased by both the Santa Blanca cartel and Kataris 26. Nomad contacts Pac Katari and demands for an explanation. Katari explains that he needs no more help from outsiders and that Bolivia is free to choose its own destiny. Katari then ends the call to face off El Sueño.
After reaching the masoleum in time, what follows after the intro cutscene played when the game is launched is shown: Nomad orders El Sueño to surrender and show the Ghosts he is unarmed, but El Sueño presents Pac Katari's decapitated head and throws it on the floor.
Bowman arrives just in time to receive a call from the Department of Justice, while El Sueño is being smug. Bowman throws the phone on the floor and explains that Sueño offered his rivals in exchange for an immunity. El Sueño calls Bowman his chauffer and orders her to take him to Bowman's superiors.
Now, depending on if the cartel has been fully destablizied or not, the following scene plays differently:
If the cartel is operational, Bowman tells the Ghosts that she is sorry in a saddened manner and shoots El Sueño multiple times before collapsing on her knees while Nomad tries to stop her. The following outro footage explains that Bowman has been arrested for her "crimes".
If the cartel is in shambles, Bowman tells the Ghosts calmly that she is sorry and escorts El Sueño safely out of Bolivia. The following outro footage shows that as a result of El Sueño's knowledge on his rival gangs, leading members of criminal organization across the globe ended up locked up. The footage shows that El Sueño's is enjoying his immunity is a monitored luxury safehouse, while Bowman suspects that Sueño might end up locked up, but will rise again, though Bowman and the Ghosts will be ready.
Release [ ]
The game is available in a standard Edition, Deluxe Edition with new equipment and an XP boost, and a Gold Edition with the Season Pass.
The Season Pass includes access to two expansions. 
Additionally, players who got into the Beta and then purchase the game received a reward of three missions based around Unidad forces.
The pre-order bonus was a mission called "The Peruvian Connection" where a bonus Buchon; La Cabra, is added to the map and the Ghost have to disrupt the ties between Santa Blanca and the Peruvian cartels. It was later added to the Season Pass.
Reception [ ]
Reception has been generally positive, with sites like Gamesradar.com giving it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.  Xbox One version of the game scored 76/100 on the review aggregator Metacritic,  while the community on Slant praised high customization possibilities and detailed environments that provide great immersion.
Post-release content [ ]
Season 1: the rise and fall of unidad [ ].
Once Bolivia’s best hope to defeat the cartels, Unidad has been corrupted into a criminal organization that rivals Santa Blanca itself. With the firepower and resources of a modern military organization, combined with extensive knowledge of the Bolivian drug trade, Unidad has the potential to transform Bolivia into the world’s largest narco-state.
Season 1 of the community challenges focus on UNIDAD with six week-long episodes.
Season 2: The Shadow of Santa Muerte [ ]
Thanks to El Sueno's support, the cartel's twisted version of Santa Muerte extends from Bolivia's rural provinces to its largest cities. This gives Sueño and the Santa Blanca cartel a steady supply of manpower and an unprecedented reach into the hearts and minds of ordinary Bolivians. Breaking up the cult will weaken the cartel and personally discredit El Sueno's claims of divine favor.
Season 2 of the community challenges focus on the influence operation with six week-long episodes.
Season 3: The Tools of the Trade [ ]
El Sueño's stranglehold on Bolivia's cocaleros gives the cartel a tremendous advantage in the global drug trade, allowing Santa Blanca to reap huge profits off the backs of Bolivian farmers. Liberating the cocaleros and shielding them from Santa Blanca's intimidation tactics will weaken the cartel and allow the Bolivians to return to their traditional way of life.
Season 3 of the community challenges focus on the production operation with six week-long episodes.
Tier 1 Mode [ ]
Tier 1 Mode was launched for all players on June 28th, 2018. It offers additional challenges for the game. The Mode can be launched at the top level - Level 30. It starts at 50 and decreases as players complete challenges and collect resources, which can be used to upgrade equipment as well.
Completing Tier 1 mode in Ghost Mode rewards the player with the golden Exoskeleton outfit.
Ghost Mode [ ]
Ghost Mode is a PVE challenge mode introduced in the Special Operations 2 Update on July 24th, 2018. This new mode features a new loadout that only allows the player to carry one weapon at a time, permadeath, friendly fire, real reloading (any ammo remaining in the magazines are lost), AI teammate removal, and a gear management system that only allows weapon swapping at ammo boxes or from corpses. Players will create a new character when starting this mode, and will lose that character when the character dies. Ghost mode can be played in solo or co-op.
Destabilizing the cartel completely grants the player the regular Exoskeleton outfit (each buchon grants one piece of the full outfit). Reaching lvl30 in the mode grants the player the blue-chrome Exoskeleton and finishing the Tier 1 mode completely gives the golden Exoskeleton.
Ghost War (PVP) [ ]
Logo grw gw bk.png|thumb|212x212px]] Titled Ghost War , the 4v4, player-vs-player mode was released on October 10, 2017 for free to all players who own the full game, with an open beta that ran in the early fall, from September 21-25.

The game’s first major expansion will give you the full spectrum of narco life, as you tear through Bolivia using new vehicles in a series of fast-paced missions. Expect to face the most insane adversaries as you infiltrate three smuggling gangs and take out their leaders one by one until you reach the mastermind: El Invisible .
It is a parallel story to the main game per the developers. Players activate a new character to infiltrate the cartel posing as a mercenary. The status of the three factions changes based off this, with Santa Blanca Cartel becoming allies and the enemy being the rival gang Los Sin Alma . The game is based on three missions, each under a different boss - Eddie Escovada , Arturo Rey , and Tonio Mateos all to unlock evidence to reach El Invisible .

Fortunately, new weapons and skills will help you and your friends find the strength to escape!
After the fall of the Santa Blanca Cartel, Unidad’s military force is unable to contain the chaos created by the Ghosts. Santa Blanca’s disorganized members search for revenge and the rebels are trying to take back control of cocaine production. In order to help restore order in the country, Unidad enlists the most dangerous volunteers, disgraced ex-military special operations and ex-cartel members from various Latin-American countries, giving birth to a unit specializing in the most brutal operations: Los Extranjeros .
Before leaving the country for good, the Ghosts have one last mission: they need to evacuate the last CIA members and American civilians remaining in the country. On their way in, their chopper is shot down and they crash in the middle of the jungle. They are now chased by enemies better equipped and stronger than them…so they will need to play smart if they want to survive.

Ghost Recon Wildlands predator location and kill guide
admin / December 21, 2017
The Ghost Recon Wildlands predator location has proven to be tricky to find for some players since the new DLC landed, but we'll show you exactly where to find him.
The Hunt DLC for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands launched recently, and sees the Predator from the 1980’s Arnold Schwarzenegger film dropped off into the depths of the Bolivian jungle. The idea is to find the Predator, kill him and earn rewards.
Ghost Recon Wildlands Predator location
Let's start from the beginning. Open up your campaign map and you'll see a new story mission called “The Jungle Moved” in Caimanes.
This is the Predator mission.
“The Ghosts have been told that a local girl has seen something unusual in the jungle of Caimanes. Talk to her and find out more.”
So, your first step is to speak to the girl. Simply, spawn to the nearest checkpoint next to the objective and head over to the spot marked on the map.
Following a conversation with the girl, you'll now have to head to three checkpoints clearly marked on the map. Visit them in order, starting from the closest checkpoint to the furthest away. There's a set of skull, bodies hanging from the trees, and finally the Predator's spaceship.
You'll hear the cries of the Predator and see a spot marked on the Ghost Recon Wildlands HUD about 1km away. Head over there and look for the Predator's trail marked in green blood.
“It it bleeds, you can kill it”.
How to kill the Predator in Ghost Recon Wildlands
Now that you've found the Ghost Recon Wildlands Predator location, you'll need to kill it. The creature is extremely fast on his feet so you don't have long to take shots. Consequently, it really suits to have a machine gun equipped like the M16 so you can make sustained blasts whenever he shows. However, you can also be just as effective with some well-placed shots with a sniper rifle.
He'll pop up all over the place, so keep on the move and watch out for when he shoots green orbs at you. You'll see the red lazer lock-on. At this point, run quickly out of the way or dive for cover. These will cause a lot of damage so stay close to cover as you move around. There's plenty of trees around to help!
The Predator can also throw knives at you which will kill you instantly. It's important that your team aren't all close together during the battle. You should be spread out throughout the jungle so he can't kill you all in one foul swoop!
Also, note the ammo box lying around, which can be a life-line if you're running short. Time your ammo run perfectly, just after he's tried to lock onto you. This way you'll be safe!
For more information, check out the Ghost Recon Wildlands review , and visit the official Ubisoft website .
Good luck soldiers!
