The update for Ghost Recon: Wildlands also allows the user to choose the type of vehicle they want to spawn when using the Drop Vehicle rebel skill.

Various fixes and tweaks related to trophy and weapon packs unlocking have been applied. And issue related to the Charactersmith model not being positioned correctly has also been fixed.

As with previous patches, players in-game will need to reboot to apply it, and in order to play co-op, all the players will need to have the same version of the game.

Amazingly, GTA 5 is still in the top five, and Infinite Warfare and FIFA 17 are still hanging on in the top ten.

Styx: Shards of Darkness is the only new entry, landing at No.37.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands tips – best weapons, exotics, sniper rifles, assault rifles & sidearms

14 Mar

Seek out and arm yourself with the most lethal weapons in Bolivia.


There’s a lot of weapons in Bolivia. So many it becomes overwhelming. Ghost Recon: Wildlands is littered with guns, and with its Gunsmith feature it allows players to tweak and adjust firepower to suit certain builds.

We’ve managed to track down a lot of the best weapons in the game and wanted to highlight where to find them, as well as which work best in certain situations, the best weapons for stealth and going loud, as well as the high-end Exotics you get as rewards for taking down the bosses.

Here then is our guide to the best weapons in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Happy hunting.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands best weapons: exotic, sniper, assault & sidearms


  • Where to find the best sniper scopes

  • A decent sniper rifle is nothing without a good scope. They don’t always come in one package, so you’re going to have to seek out the best for your new rifle.

  • The best sidearms: pistols and SMGs

  • You’ll always need a backup weapon for when the best plans go tits up. Arm yourself with a silenced pistol or just something that goes loud and deadly at the flick of a safety.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – how to get all Exotic Weapons

14 Mar

Defeat these bosses to get your hands on some of the best weapons in Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

ghost_recon_wildlands_1 (Copy)

Ghost Recon: Wildlands isn’t shy of weapons, but if you want to wield the power of the drug lords you’re going to have to prise their exotic weapons from their cold dead fingers.

Exotic weapons in Ghost Recon: Wildlands can only be taken from defeated bosses, so you’ll have to play through the campaign. Unlike other weapons, Exotics come with a preset build and cannot be modified or customised. But when they look this deadly, why would you want to change that?

If you’re looking for weapons you can modify, we have a list of the best assault rifles in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, the locations of all the pistols and sidearms, and where to find the best sniper rifles, including the MSR.

Here’s all the bosses you’ll have to defeat and the rewards you get for killing them.

There’s a Dark Souls Easter egg in Ghost Recon: Wildlands because no modern game is complete without one

14 Mar

When aliens try to piece together the history of our civilisation from the contents of somebody’s PS4 hard drive, they’re going to assume Dark Souls was our most important cultural touchstone.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands includes a little nod to Dark Souls, because of course it does.

Dark Souls and its extended family may be considered niche due to their difficulty (although it’s hard to think of such well-known games as anything but mainstream), but they’re hugely popular among developers, as evidenced by how many games these days include a small tribute to the franchise.

The most popular way to reference Dark Souls is to include something akin to the iconic bonfires, and that’s what we find in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, too. YouTuber xGarbett takes a look at it above.

The Witcher 3 had a similar Dark Souls easter egg, as did Just Cause 3 and Overwatch. Borderlands 2 has a stack of Dark Souls Easter eggs, and you can find references in World of Warcraft, Mirror’s Edge, Fallout 4, Destiny, Killzone Shadowfall, Dota 2, Skyrim and the From Software-published 3D Dot Heroes, too.

More importantly than these cute little references to a beloved game, Dark Souls has already had a powerful impact on triple-A and indie game design, and is certain to leave behind an enduring legacy. We’ve seen some flat out clones of the series, like Lords of the Fallen, and mutated iterations of it, as with Titan Souls.

Some games cherry pick bits and pieces of the From Software formula, like Nier Automata’s corpses, and you could argue that shades of Dark Souls are felt in most third-person action games these days, through evolving RPG systems and an emphasis on high risk high reward combat.

If we are to see no more Dark Souls games, as seems likely, it’s nice that some of its ideas live on – and that developers like the Ghost Recon Wildlands team continue to pay tribute.

Denuvo Copy Protection Made Benchmarking Ghost Recon Wildlands Very Lengthy

13 Mar

Ghost Recon Wildlands has got great reviews ever since it launched this month and while the story and gameplay play an important role in the success of the game, there are those who want to know the performance numbers before they actually buy the game.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands update 1.1.5 improves multi and quad-core CPUs support, crash fixes, more

10 Mar

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands team will deploy a PC-specific patch later this afternoon.


Players can expect patch 1.1.5 for the Uplay/Steam version of Ghost Recon: Wildlands to hit around 3.30pm ET/8.30 UK.

The developers state this is an intermediary patch, and includes some “major compatibility and performance” fixes and improvements.

Once the patch is online, just reboot and the patch will be applied. If you are in-game, you still keep playing and wait before applying the patch. An in-game notification will alert you when the download is ready.

Patch 1.1.5 notes are below, and the update is around 4GB depending on your client.

  • Multi-GPU improved support: Worked with partners to improve both SLI and Crossfire support. Various stuttering and graphical corruption issues have now been fixed.
  • Quad-core CPUs improved support:Several freezes and performance issues have been resolved for players using quad-core CPUs, notably Intel i5 based setups.
  • AMD graphic cards improved performances
  • Enhanced mouse navigation in store menu
  • 4K menu background scaling implemented
  • Several crash sources have been addressed
  • Improved Ansel support and fixed bugs
  • Other bug fixes & improvements

Ubisoft noted that once the patch has been applied to your game, in order to play co-op, both players will need to have the same version of the game.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – where to find the best sniper rifles including the MSR

9 Mar

The locations of all the sniper rifles in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, including the deadly MSR.

Although you get a sniper rifle pretty early in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, there are plenty more waiting for you in the open world.

These weapons are found in cases all around the map, and in the video above, YouTuber INFsleeper shows you the exact location for each of them. Not only that, the video also demonstrates how each sniper looks and sounds in the game, including silenced.

Where to find the MSR best sniper rifle


If you want to grab one of the best sniper rifles in Ghost Recon: Wildlands quickly, you can get the MSR early on. It’s best to grab a chopper so you can fly straight to the location, rather than risk getting in over you head by accidentally running into the Unidad forces. Open the map and fly west to the Montuyoc region, staying low.


You’re looking for the Choza Padre Mine, which is on the dirt road south of Araca Village – it’s almost as far west as you can go on the map.


Take out the handful of guards from the safety of the chopper before landing, then head into the mine entrance.


There’s a lot of enemies in here, including a mounted gun. Fortunately there’s a lot of explosive barrels and an APC outside that you can drive into the entrace and use for cover. You’re not going too deep into the mine, so you can go loud and use heavy firepower and grenades. Just wait for the cartel to rush you and mow them down.


Once the entrance is clear, just take the first left to the end where you’ll find the MSR at the very end. Check out the stats on that bad boy; accuracy, range and penetration are almost all maxed out, and damage isn’t far behind.

If you’re looking for a different scope to go with the MSR, check out the location of all the sniper scopes right here. Many of these scopes can be attached to the sniper rifles, in case you don’t like the one they come with.

There are 11 sniper rifles in total, with different configurations such as semi-auto and bolt action. As with any weapon in Wildlands, once you locate and claim it, it’s yours to customise and keep.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands known issues, freezing, stuttering, fps drops, download problems and more

8 Mar

All the Ghost Recon: Wildlands problems Ubisoft is currently tracking.

ghost recon wildlands beta 4k screenshots (6)

With Ghost Recon: Wildlands now out in the wild, reports have been cropping up about performance issues such as freezing and stuttering, in-game glitches, stuck downloads, and more. Some of these carried over from the beta, while others are new.

In an effort to catalogue all reported problems thus far, Ubisoft created a list of known issues the developers are currently looking into. The included items cover the main game, the Ghost Recon HQ app, and the Ghost Recon Network site.

General issues

  • Gameplay – AI Vehicle Pathfinding

    Some users have reported issues on some specific locations in relation to the AI pathfinding, causing some vehicle collision. We are currently investigating this situation.

  • Gameplay – Melee-killed enemies are tagged as “surrendering enemies killed”

    When trying to kill an enemy with close-quarters-combat (melee), the “surrendering enemy killed” notification may appear. Since surrendering enemies are considered as civilians, killing too many of them may result a mission fail. We are sorry for the inconvenience and have already fixed this issue for the next patch.

  • Mission – Boss will not re-initialise after mission replay

    After a mission fail, mission boss might not re-initialize when trying to replay the mission. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • Mission – La Plaga will not try to run-away when detecting player

    When reaching La Plaga, this one will not try to run-away by using the nearby bike when detecting the players. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch

  • Mission – Missing helicopter for Medication air transport activity on Tabacal

    It can be noticed that when playing in the Tabacal region, the side activity “Medication Air Transport” might not be available due to the fact that the helicopter is not spawning. We are sorry for the inconvenience and are currently investigating this issue.

  • Tacmap – Bosses might appear in red when un-zooming the map

    When un-zooming the minimap to reach the Cartel view and going back to the tacmap, some bosses might appear in red despite not being killed by the player yet. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • Co-op – Replication break when VIP interact with vehicles

    When playing in Coop, it can be noticed that replication might be affected when a VIP interact with a vehicle. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch

  • Co-op – Cutscenes unavailable for other players when replaying missions

    When playing Coop, it may be noticed that only the player that is restarting a mission is able to see the custscenes. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • Co-op – Unable to damage vehicles from other players

    In co-op, when a player enter and leave a vehicle, it can be noticed that other players are unable to deal damage to this vehicle. The team is currently investigating this issue.

  • Uplay – Download Issues

    Some players are reporting that their download on Uplay is getting stuck at 27GB. Our team is aware of this issue and currently investigating.

  • Pre-order – Invalid code

    Some players are reporting they’ve been unable to redeem their codes on the Redeem site “code invalid”. Please have a look at the FAQ for more details

  • PC – Outdated version

    Some players are reporting getting an outdated error message when booting the game. We suggest you to remove all previous versions of the game and verify game files. You can also try deleting some other files, such as: events.xml, Uyuni.grw, VersionDescription.ini and NvGsa.x64.dll.

Glitches and bugs

  • Glitch/Bug – 3D model glitch when changing save slot

    After the deletion of an existing game save or changing slot, it can be notice that the 3D model of the Ghost in not centred in the Charactersmith. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • Glitch/Bug – Level of Details (LOD) issues from far distances

    When piloting a helicopter or a plane at high altitude, it can be noticed that some visual elements are not showing properly. The team is currently investigating this situation.

  • Shop – Missing DLC/Season pass in-game store

    It can be noticed when reaching the in-game store menu that the Season Pass / DLC category is empty. As a workaround, you can get this content directly from your console or Uplay/Steam store.

  • Shop – Empty chest after weapon purchase

    When buying a weapon in the store that is available in the game world, it may happen that the chest that is supposed to contain this weapon is empty when trying to interact with it. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • PS4 – “The Champion” trophy

    In certain conditions, the “The Champion” trophy might not be triggered at the associated level cap. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • Ubisoft Club – “Welcome Back” pop-up

    If you participated in the Beta phases of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, a pop-up should be prompted at 2nd launch to remind you of the Ubisoft Rewards you are eligible for. However, this pop-up might not appear. This does not affect your eligibility for this content. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • PC – Crash when opening map

    A few players are reporting that when opening the map in-game, the game crashes to desktop. Our team is aware of the issue and is investigating. We recommend you to verify your game files or reinstall the game.

  • PC – Unable to launch the game on non-OS hard drive

    On some configurations, the game won’t start when installed on a non-OS hard drive. We are currently investigating this issue. As a work-around, we recommend you to go the Ghost Recon Wildlands installation folder and run rungame.exe with administrator rights once.

  • Gameplay – Intel HUD missing

    Some players who are playing with the HUD disabled are getting stuck when collecting Intel as there is no prompt to choose which Intel to collect. We recommend you to enable the ‘Notifications’ and ‘Input reminders’ options in the settings for the time being.

Performance issues

    It can be noticed when opening the TacMap that the game may freeze for a few seconds (3s). This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • PC – Multi-GPU Support

    layers using a SLI/Crossfire setup may experience severe stuttering and flickering during gameplay. We are currently working with our partners to solve those issues as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we recommend you to disable your second GPU when playing Ghost Recon Wildlands. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

  • PC – Autosave low FPS

    Some players have been reporting low FPS during autosaving. The team is currently investigating this situation.

  • PC – Unable to launch the game on non-OS hard drive

    On some configurations, the game won’t start when installed on a non-OS hard drive. We are currently investigating this issue. As a work-around, we recommend you go the Ghost Recon Wildlands installation folder and run rungame.exe with administrator rights once.

  • Performance – FPS drop in heavily populated areas

    When crossing heavily populated areas, such as cities, the game may suffer from a temporary FPS drop. The development team is currently investigating this situation.

  • PS4 – Performance drop after 100KM

    When reaching a total driving distance of 100KM, the associated trophy on PS4 might be triggered in loop, impacting performance of the gameplay. This issue has already been fixed for the next patch.

  • Controls – Fake controller

    Some players have been reporting that despite not having any controller plugged into their system, the game is using a gamepad as default controller. This issue can be related to the previous installation of a virtual joystick or previously connected devices – including, for instance, VJoy software. Please verify on your Device Manager > Human Interface Devices that only connected devices are activated.

Ghost Recon HQ app

  • Crash – Launch crash on iPod 5th Gen & iPhone 4S

    We identified crashes at launch on iPod 5th Gen & iPhone 4. We are currently investigating this issue and are not recommending using those devices with the Ghost Recon Wildlands HQ App for the time being.

    When using the Satellite view during an extensive game session, the app may crash. A restart of the app will solve the issue. We are currently investigating.

    On some specific devices, the app may crash when entering the web-site feature.

  • Display – Landscape view lock on iPhone 7+

    It can be noticed that the app is only available on Landscape view on iPhone 7+. We are currently investigating this situation.

  • Freeze – Freeze after multiple logins/logouts

    When trying to login & logout repetitively in a row, the Ubisoft Club icon may remain stuck and freezing the app. A simple reboot will solve the issue.

  • Android – Back button unavailable on website view

    On Android devices, the back button might not be functional while using the web site view.

  • Android – Return to main menu when locking device on website view

    When locking the device on Android while using the website view, the app may be automatically redirect to the main menu.

  • Bug/Glitch – Application unable to sync

    Some players are unable to sync their app with their game. Please try to use the following workaround:
    Go to START >Type in “Windows Firewall with Advanced Security” (Without quotes)

    -Click > Inbound Rules

    -Click > New Rule (Right column)

    -Click > Program > Next

    -Browse > Ghost Recon WIldlands EXE (GRW.exe) Wherever it is installed for you > Next

    -Allow the connection > Next

    -Keep all three checked > Next

    -Name it what you like > Description > Finish

    -Do this for Outbound Rule as well so they can communicate.

Ghost Recon Network

  • Stats – Inconsistency in enemy killed statistics

    It can be noticed in the Ghost Recon Network that the Total Enemy Killed counter is not accurate. We are currently investigating this issue

  • Stats – Missing icon for several weapons

    It can be noticed that some weapon icons are missing in the Weapon Leaderboard of the Ghost Recon Network.

  • Stats – Confusing “favourite vehicle” stat

    On the Ghost Recon Network advanced stats page, the favourite vehicle counter is using “m” unit instead of the “min” one. This stats is indeed based on the time spent on the vehicle and not the covered distance.

  • Notifications – Missing notifications

    While using the Ghost Recon Network, it may happen that notifications are not displayed in real time and would require a refresh of the page.

  • Taskforce – TaskForce emblem not updating

    It can be noticed that some Task Forces emblems selected in the game may not update on the Ghost Recon Network website.

  • Achievements – Confusing “Recruitment Command” unlock conditions

    The unlock condition description of the “Recruitment Command” achievement might lead to confusion. The player has to accept more than 4 “Join Task Force Requests” in order to unlock this achievement.

  • PS4 – Browser feature not loading

    Some PS4 users are reporting a “Cannot use this feature” error message when trying to use the PS4 browser. We’re investigating the issue.

  • Website – GRN / Unknown User Message

    Some players trying to access the GRN Website got the Unknown User message on the top right corner of the page instead of their real usernames. This issue should now be fixed.

Ubisoft has not yet revealed any details about the game’s next patch. We did get two day one patches already, though.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – where to find all sniper rifle scopes in the game

7 Mar

Don’t go through Ghost Recon: Wildlands using a less-than-stellar sniper scope.

If you played any of the Ghost Recon: Wildlands betas over the past few weeks, you’ll know how frustrating it was to use a sniper rifle without a proper long-range scope.

Unlike The Division, Wildlands doesn’t generate weapon attachments randomly. Instead, you’ll find these in weapon part cases scattered around the game’s world. In the video above, YouTube user INFsleeper lays out the locations for all the sniper scopes in the game.

The video is very detailed, offering a look at the sight in-game, and where to find it on the map. What’s great about this approach is that you can head straight to the location of the scope you want so you can use it throughout the game, without relying on chance.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Incoming search terms:

There’s a button with a sign that says “don’t press me” in Ghost Recon: Wildlands that you should totally press

7 Mar

Don’t let signs tell you what to do, not even in Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

The game world in Ghost Recon: Wildlands is massive, so it’s natural you’re going to come across references and Easter eggs of various shapes and sizes.

Sometimes, these can take the shape of a big button with a sign next to it that clearly advises you not to press it. Of course, we all know everyone is going to press the button. Thankfully, in this case, that’s a bad thing!

This Easter egg was spotted by YouTube user BUGZ-MAN-FR, who captured what happens when you press the button. We won’t spoil the surprise for you here, but the video does show you where to find it.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Waiting for Ghost Recon: Wildlands to unlock? Watch the release trailer to tide you over

6 Mar

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is only a few hours away. Here’s something to help with the wait – or maybe make it worse.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out now in Australia and Europe, and as of time of writing was less than an hour from unlock in the UK. The US has just a few hours to go, too.

That makes the appearance of the Ghost Recon: Wildlands release trailer pretty timely. None of this a-full-week-before-release or two-days-later-if-we-remember nonsense for Ubisoft’s marketing team: no sir. Punctuality and efficiency in all things.

By the way, if you’re on PC what time Ghost Recon: Wildlands unlocks in your region depends on whether you’ve purchased through Steam or Uplay. That link has all the details on other platforms and download sizes, too – and don’t forget the two Ghost Recon: Wildlands day one patches if you’re hoping to go online with buddies at midnight.

Are you excited for Ghost Recon: Wildlands, or is it too close to For Honor, Horizon Zero Dawn and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for you? It seems to have generated a lot of hype, and surely that can’t all be down to the staunch Xbox-only faithful among us. Right?

Here’s exactly when Ghost Recon: Wildlands unlocks in your region, and how big the download is

Ubisoft has outlined exactly when each part of the world will get access to Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Times are different for each of the three platforms, too, so read on for details.

First up, the game’s download size is going to be between 40 and 42GB, depending on the platform. Pre-loading has been available for a few days now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, too.

As or unlock times, the Uplay PC version, PS4, and Xbox One will all unlock at 12am your local time on March 7. So as soon as it’s midnight, you’ll be able to connect and play.

The Steam version, however, will unlock at 5am GMT/UK on March 7. This translates to 6am CET, 9pm PST, 12am EST, and 4pm AEDT.

Some retail copies were sent out early, so it’s worth noting that the game has two day one patches clocking in around 3GB in total.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands can be played offline with AI buddies, so if servers get a beating you should be able to continue solo without issue.

French diplomats are now handling a formal complaint over Ghost Recon Wildlands, a video game

2 Mar

Ghost Recon: Wildlands has sparked a diplomatic incident. Not every video game can say that.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands has been – ha ha! – wildly popular, outperforming For Honor to set a beta participation record for Ubisoft.

As much as we all seemed to like Ghost Recon: Wildlands, it hasn’t gone down well with the government of Bolivia, which has lodged a formal complaint with the French embassy over its depiction of the country as under the total control of drug traffickers.

Bolivian Interior Minister Carlos Romero told Reuters the government may even lawyer up over Ghost Recon: Wildlands if it doesn’t get a satisfactory reply to its letter of complaint.

“We have the standing to [take legal action], but at first we prefer to go the route of diplomatic negotiation,” he said.

Ubisoft responded to press with a statement saying Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a work of fiction imagining “a different reality than the one that exists in Bolivia today”, and that it chose Bolivia as a setting for its story of violent drug cartels because of its “magnificent landscapes and rich culture”.

The French embassy in Bolivia has not yet responded to requests for comment on the activities of its nation’s most prominent video games publisher. Imagine training your whole life to join the diplomatic corps and having Ghost Recon: Wildlands land on your desk. “Is this my life now,” you might say, staring out the window at the magnificent landscapes of Bolivia.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands releases next week for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and may sell even better than expected with this slab of free publicity.

I doubt Bolivia will actually sue Ubisoft in the end but let’s make some popcorn, just in case.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – here’s what’s included in the Season Pass, free PvP mode and Challenges coming

2 Mar

Details on the Season Pass and other post-launch content plans have been provided for Ghost Recon: Wildlands – both free and paid.

A price for the Season Pass wasn’t provided as of press time, but it’s known that certain retail and digital editions of Ghost Recon: Wildlands will include the pass along with all post-launch content.

The Season Pass will come with two major expansions, one special mission, boosts, equipment packs, and an exclusive vehicle. Both expansions will include one week of early access before being released to the public.

Those who do not own the Season Pass will need to fork over some cash for each of the expansions. A price was not provided.

All players, though, will be handed a free PvP update for after release. It’s a tactical, class-based 4v4 team combat mode with details to be made available at a later date.

Ubisoft also provided information on Challenges. The first Season of Challenges will start a few weeks after launch with each Season featuring a specific theme, creating a short story to follow.

For a month and a half, players will be handed weekly objectives, some of which need to be accomplished solo, with the Task Force and through the entire community. If the different Challenges are completed, various rewards will be unlocked for all participants. More information on Challenges will be announced at a later date.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta performance analysis reveals plenty of drops below 30fps on PS4 and Xbox One

27 Feb

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta ran a little rough on consoles.

The open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands wrapped up earlier today. No matter what you thought of the game’s actual content and gameplay, performance on consoles has been lacklustre.

The latest video analysis from Digital Foundry takes a look and compares the three console versions, PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One. Performance and visuals are looked at, with some surprising results.

Wildlands targets 30fps on consoles, but regularly dips below that target, according to the report. Screen tearing and frame-rate drops have been reported at multiple instances, resulting in a lot of stutter.

The Xbox One version looks to have the worst of it, with drops to 26fps happening regularly. Although the standard PS4 suffers from a lot of the same issues, drops are less frequent here.

As for PS4 Pro, you can expect a locked 30fps frame-rate, which produces a more consistent and smoother experience overall. This even applies to both 1080p and 4K modes, which is nice to see.

As for the game’s resolution, PS4 runs at a native 1080p, with only 900p for Xbox One. The PS4 Pro takes this up a notch to 1440p.
