Ghost Recon Wildlands Title Update 6 Changes How Helicopters Work

The next Ghost Recon Wildslands title update has been detailed by Ubisoft. As announced on their blog, the biggest change will be a totally revamped control scheme for helicopters. The new system makes the vehicles control very differently from before (but if you don’t like it you can still go back to the old scheme). It’ll also have a bunch of bug fixes, and new challenges for returning players. Check out the update for yourself in the third-person shooter’s newest trailer: [embedded content] Ubisoft outlined these changes over at their official blog: Taking flight in a helicopter over the cartel-controlled countryside in Ghost Recon Wildlands can be a risky proposition, but Title Update 6 is bringing changes to helicopter controls and handling that make flying both easier to control and more authentic. In addition to the control tweaks (detailed below), each type of helicopter now flies differently, and choppers won’t take off until they reach the correct RPM. Get a peek at the whirlybirds in action in the video above. If the new control scheme isn’t the right fit for you, you can always switch back to the old controls. You’ll still be able to benefit from the new READ FULL…

Players Come Up With Own Ghost Recon Competitive Modes While Waiting For PVP

As the community anxiously awaits the post-launch PVP mode, some Ghost Recon: Wildlands players are getting crafty with their own in-game challenges. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands launched on March 7th, and the final paid DLC, “Fallen Ghosts” arrived on May 30th. Since then, no details have been shared by Ubisoft regarding a free tactical PVP mode that was promised as post-launch content. Advertisement Ghost Recon does offer some ways to keep players entertained, but the wait for PVP has proven maddening for some fans. While some players are taking their frustrations out on social media outlets, other are teaming up with their friends to find their own unique ways to compete within Wildlands. SXVXN and friends use the “Narco Road” DLC, along with helicopters, nitro monster tricks, and other vehicles to make their own fun.

Wildlands' New Sniper Rifle Can Blow Up A Car, Somehow

GIF The most powerful gun in Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ new “Fallen Ghosts” DLC is a sniper rifle that can blow up cars with a single bullet. Within the expansion, which released as part of the game’s season pass on June 30, is a sniper rifle exclusive to “Fallen Ghosts,” and it is a gun you’ll want to try out. The BFG-50A is a semi-auto, .50 caliber rifle with maxed out damage, accuracy, and range. One shot, one kill. You can blow up literal carloads of enemies in the Bolivian jungle with a single shot of this rifle. This gun is ridiculously powerful, and you can even add a Suppressor attachment. Snipe them from a distance, and they’ll never see what hit’em. (Killing carloads of civilians is still generally frowned upon.) Advertisement The BFG-50A is unlocked simply through story progression—head to the Western Precinct section and grab your intel marked on the map to unlock the missions. If you decided to skip the season pass, you can buy Fallen Ghosts separately starting June 6. READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Final Story DLC Is Brutal And Fun

A second major expansion has arrived for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, one in which players will go from the hunters to the hunted. “Fallen Ghosts” went live May 30 for Season Pass holders, and will become available as a solo DLC purchase on June 6 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The expansion is set after the events of the main Ghost Recon: Wildlands storyline, where the Ghosts worked to dismantle the Santa Blanca cartel. Now the Ghosts are stranded in the Bolivian jungle and faced with more heavily armored soldiers and Covert Ops enemies equipped with digital cloaking devices. Seriously, these guys are tough. If you’re somehow emotionally attached to your character, you’ll be disappointed to find that Fallen Ghosts forces you to create a completely new level 30 character. This is good for new or low-level Wildlands players because the DLC is a brutal test, and you’ll need the skills unlocked to survive the 15 added missions and four new bosses. Nine new skills have also been added to aid your efforts in the enemy-filled jungle environment. You’ll want the new Reaction Marking skill, which will allow you to mark anyone who shoots at READ FULL STORY…
