Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bipod Location: Where to Find It

The Ghost Recon: Breakpoint bipod provides a suite of passive buffs. This guide shows you where the bipod is and how to attach it.

The Ghost Recon: Breakpoint bipod is one of the more useful attachments in the game. While the weapon customization options in Breakpoint are as vast as the wildlands of Auroa themselves, the bipod is one weapon attachment you'll want to get as early as possible. 

While you can learn how to hold your breath to steady your aim, that action in Breakpoint is a bit cumbersome (see the bottom of this guide on how to hold your breath if you want to know more). However, using the bipod is a much easier solution to help increase accuracy.

Below, we'll show you how to find the bipod on the Breakpoint map, as well as the exact location in the Fuel Storage area. Lastly, we'll look at how to equip it and its stats. 

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Bipod Location

The bipod can is near the Bald Ridge Bivouac in the Seal Islands. Specifically, it is near that region's Fuel Storage area, a heavily fortified encampment full of high-level enemies. 

The Seal Islands are in the southern portion of the map, near the southern coast. The Bald Ridge Bivouac is in the northern area of that region, directly to Bald Ridge itself.

See the map below for the exact location. The yellow circle is the bivouac. The red circle is the Fuel Storage area.

You can easily access this area at any point in the game. If you're doing so early on, jump in the helicopter at Erewhon and fly over. There aren't any missiles or air-defenses to block your way.

I suggest landing at the Bald Ridge Bivouac and setting your preparations and tactics. Then, go over to the fuel depot on foot. 

Traversing the Fuel Storage Area

Face the Fuel Storage area by looking due west (kind of like in the picture above). The entrance is heavily fortified; unless you're playing much later in the game, you aren't getting in this way. 

Instead, go along the left side of the area. You will climb up a mountain. At the top, you should see the fuel tanks in the back of the area. Climb down the mountain, still staying along the left side of the area. 

Go along the water at the back of the area and jump down. Then quickly climb up onto the concrete dock in front of you. It is the area beneath the fuel tanks. 

Now, use your drone to tag the sniper up on the second tier of fuel tanks, as well as the burly machinegunner/juggernaut a little higher up. 

Exact Bipod Chest Location

From here, your goal is to get to the crate with the blue gun above it, as pictured below. If you climb up the stairs in the middle of the area and then go prone at the top of the second landing, you can easily crawl over to the crate and grab the bipod. 

You can then fast travel to any bivouac or Erewhon.

How to Attach the Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bipod

You can attach the bipod through the menu and selecting the Gunsmith option:

  • Pause the game
  • Highlight one of your weapons
  • Choose "Edit in Gunsmith"
  • Select "Under Barrel" in the menu to the right
  • Attach the bipod

There are three crucial things to note.

1. So far, I've only found that I can attach the bipod to sniper rifles. Logically, it could also be attached to LMGs, but I haven't found an LMG that allows for it. 

2. The bipod can only be attached to a gun that has an underbarrel — and not all firearms that have underbarrels take the bipod. 

3. You won't actually deploy the bipod. Instead, it's a cosmetic item that buffs your current weapon.
