Ghost Recon: Breakpoint How to Change Class Guide

This Ghost Recon: Breakpoint how to change class guide tells you how to unlock classes and use bivouacs to change them.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint lets you change classes on the fly, but it doesn't tell you how. Since the four main classes provide vastly different perks, it is important to learn how to change classes mid-game. Doing so is vital for discovering new solutions to more complex problems.

You can play the game using only one class at a time, but that's not optimal, especially when you consider how easy it is to unlock them and the benefits they provide in both single-player and multiplayer.

The classes in Ghost Recon Breakpoint in the skills screen

The game's four classes are:

  1. Field Medic 
  2. Assault 
  3. Panther
  4. Sharpshooter

You can change them by following these steps:

  1. Go to any Bivouac 
  2. Rest your character
  3. Go to the Tactics menu
  4. Select any class you want to switch to
  5. Press Confirm

You can unlock them by following these steps:

  1. Go to Main Menu
  2. Select the Skills tab
  3. Scroll down to the class options at the bottom
  4. Click on the class you want to unlock
  5. Hold down the "Interact" button

Each class costs one skill point to unlock. While you need four skill points to open all four classes, you can unlock any of them at any point  as long as you have a skill point to spend.

Options that are not already unlocked will be grayed out. However, that does not mean you can't unlock them. Simply hover over them when you have a skill point and unlock them following the steps above. 

For example, another GameSkinny writer already has all four classes unlocked and has only played the game for two hours.
