Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a massive game, even bigger than its already enormous predecessor, Wildlands. For that reason, no one likes to get stuck on any particular mission for too long there's simply too much to see and do.

If you've been getting stuck on the side mission named A New Perspective, we've got the guide to help you through. While the mission instructs you to "investigate the phenomena," soon after, the mission marker gleefully leaves you to get lost. But not anymore!

Here's how to track the drone towers down in Stephen Falls, investigate the phenomena, and complete A New Perspective.

A New Perspective Walkthrough

The mission begins northwest of the Behemoth Passage, in the southern section of Whaler's Bay. There you'll meet Alvarez, who asks for your help in diagnosing some peculiar drone activity he's observed. 

This mission is a unique one, given how it asks you to interact with its systems. You'll be using white drone towers as viewfinders, peering through them with your drone. Each time, you're looking for the next drone along Stephen Falls. It's important you bring a helicopter. Otherwise, you'll be swimming back and forth down the river. Slowly. 

Stephen Falls Tower Locations

Tower #1 is just beside your questgiver. Look through it using your drone and aim its sights across the river almost directly south. That's where you'll find Tower #2.

Looking through Tower 1 in Stephen Falls to Tower 2

Head there with your chopper and repeat the same moves. When in doubt, always look somewhere due south to start.

Tower #3 is southeast on your compass, just below the treeline.

Looking at Tower 3 just below the treeline in Breakpoint

Once you make it over to Tower #3, peer again with the drone. This time, look south and then just slightly southwest. About halfway down the range, you'll see Tower #4.

Once you're at Tower #4, look exactly southeast, just at the top of a cliff on the other side of the river for Tower #5.

Looking across a rive to Tower 5 in Stephen Falls

From Tower #5, look back south by southwest again. This time focus on the area where the trees meet the rocky slopes for Tower #6.

Almost done now, so don't worry.

From Tower #6, look directly east, below where the two distant mountains seem to overlap. You'll find Tower #7your final tower, but we're not quite done with the drone viewfinding just yet.

Tower 7 in Ghost Recon Breakpoint A New Perspective

With a helicopter, all that zig-zagging down the riverside should only take a few minutes. From Tower #7, you'll want to continue looking east with your drone through the last tower display.

You'll see hints of a Skell laboratory through the trees. Fidgeting with the reticule for a moment should give you a new mission marker. This is your final destination, but be warned that it's loaded with bad guys, human and AI alike.

Exploring the Skell Research Facility

Whether you sneak in or run in guns blazing, you'll want to get upstairs in the main building so that you can gather intel off a computer inside. This intel is what Alvarez so desperately seeks.

With his answers in tow, return to Alvarez, give him the documents, and learn about the Skell AI.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Guide: How to Complete Critical Mass Side Mission https://www.gameskinny.com/a4e7u/ghost-recon-breakpoint-guide-how-to-complete-critical-mass-side-mission https://www.gameskinny.com/a4e7u/ghost-recon-breakpoint-guide-how-to-complete-critical-mass-side-mission Thu, 10 Oct 2019 14:21:11 -0400 Mark Delaney

The open-world of Ghost Recon Breakpoint has arguably the most content Ubisoft has ever pumped into one game at launch. That means plenty of side missions come along for the ride with the main story. If you're stuck on Critical Mass, we get it. The map is not your friend in this one.

That's why we created this guide to help you find your way around and complete this side mission.

After talking to Schulz in Erewhon, you'll learn he fears there's nuclear activity on Auroa. His briefing sends you to Howard Port, which is in the central-eastern portion of the map, southwest of the Driftwood Islets.

Howard Port map location Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Inside the enemy encampment, there's a two-story grey building. Upstairs in that building, there's crucial intel to give you your next location. Here's a drone shot of the building you're looking for if you want to skip the part where you violently interrogate baddies for information.

That intel will move you far to the other side of the archipelago, to Camp Ferret, just northwest of Mount Elliot.

Camp Ferret map location Ghost Recon Break Point

Downstairs in this camp, you'll find more intel on a table, as well as a map that needs to be scanned.

Critical Mass map

To this point, it's a pretty standard Breakpoint side mission. But then it gets annoying. Your next location is in an underground tunnel, but the mission marker betrays you. If you go directly to it, you'll wind up standing on the side of a cliff with no entrance to your destination.

Instead, head 1.4 kilometers south of that marker to the white blip in the screenshot below.

Underground tunnel location on Breakpoint map for Critical Mass

There you'll find more enemies, some vehicles, and a tunnel. Dispatch or sneak past the guards and take one of the vehicles into the tunnel. Take your first left down the well-lit section and follow it straight until you get to a junction. There are more bad guys where several corridors lead off in different directions. 

Driving a military vehicle down through a tunnel

Most of these tunnels are dead ends, so you'll know when you get to the right one because it updates the mission marker. Inside is a blast door, but it can't be opened yet.

If you're looking at the blast door, turn left and follow the wiring on the ground into the back rooms until you see an electrical switch that can be interacted with.

Inside the blast room during the Critical Mass side mission

This gives you access to the blast room. Inside you'll find two objectives: a blueprint on the wall and pieces of a bomb. Interact with both in that order and get ready to run.

After you're done with the bomb, sprint out of that room and be sure to turn and lock the blast door behind you. The game gives you only 15 seconds to do this, and without messing up, you'll need about 10, so there's little room for error here.

If you close the door before the bomb goes off, you will have thwarted a nuclear attack. Head back to Erewhon and report to Schulz, who will thank you for doing precisely that before going back to standing in the same spot for 60 gameplay hours.

Besides a large number of weapons in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, you can purchase and use a wide variety of vehicles. These range from motorbikes to helicopters. Below you will find a quick step-by-step guide on how to buy and call vehicles in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

You will need to buy vehicles from specialized shops/locations. You can then call any one of them to you, helping you explore the open world of the game much faster.

Step 1: Purchase Vehicles

All of your vehicles are in your garage. But before you can call them, you need to buy them from the gunshop.

The gunshop is located at the Homesteaders base in Twin Falls Mountain.

Here's what you need to do to purchase vehicles in Ghost Recon Breakpoint:

  1. Click on the Shop menu once you entered the gunshop
  2. Choose the Vehicles tab
  3. Click on any vehicle you want to buy from the list
  4. Confirm purchase

Once you've purchased the vehicles, they will be added to your garage menu.

Step 2: Call Vehicles

When you're out in the field and want to call a vehicle, follow these steps:

  1. Find bivouac location
  2. Deploy bivouac
  3. Click on the Garage menu while resting
    • The option to the far-right
  4. Choose between the following tabs:
    • Four Wheels
    • Two Wheels
    • Flying
  5. Select any vehicle you own
  6. Leave Bivouac

Once you're out the bivouac, the vehicle of your choice will spawn nearby. If you want to know how to call helicopters, then just use the Flying tab in the Garage menu.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Switch Aiming Shoulder: How to do It https://www.gameskinny.com/2zj0h/ghost-recon-breakpoint-switch-aiming-shoulder-how-to-do-it https://www.gameskinny.com/2zj0h/ghost-recon-breakpoint-switch-aiming-shoulder-how-to-do-it Sat, 05 Oct 2019 00:13:17 -0400 GS_Staff

A Ghost Recon Breakpoint switch shoulder guide ... why do we even need it? Seems kind of silly, right? Well, Breakpoint has a plethora of tutorials that don't always cover the game's most basic mechanics. For those hoping to switch the camera perched over Nomad's shoulder from left to right and vice verse, this guide is here to help. 

If you're like some of our editors, there's a chance you like a particular camera placement in third-person shooters. So how do you do tweak the over the shoulder camera in Breakpoint

Like this. 

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Switch Shoulders Guide: How to do It

To switch aiming shoulders in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, tap: 

  • R1 on PS4
  • RB on Xbox One
  • Middle mouse button on PC

Make sure you tap the correct input on console. If you hold it down on PS4 or Xbox One, you'll open the item wheel. 

You'll use this a lot because the camera shifts every time you exit cover. Breakpoint's auto cover mechanic is a messy system that constantly shifts the over the shoulder camera. Especially bothersome is when it happens exiting cover indoors or during a firefight. 

Thankfully, though, this Ghost Recon Breakpoint guide on how to switch aiming shoulders has your back like a faithful squaddie.

How to Drink Water in Ghost Recon Breakpoint https://www.gameskinny.com/47jlk/how-to-drink-water-in-ghost-recon-breakpoint https://www.gameskinny.com/47jlk/how-to-drink-water-in-ghost-recon-breakpoint Fri, 04 Oct 2019 22:41:40 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Learning how to drink water in Ghost Recon Breakpoint is simple, but extremely useful. To survive in Auroa, you need to make sure that you heal yourself and keep your stamina at max capacity. 

As you run or otherwise put stress on your character's body, you'll notice your stamina meter falling. While it will slowly regenerate on its own, it will replenish faster if you drink water. 

If you slide or roll down too many hills or steep mountainsides, you'll also notice that your stamina bar shrinks. One of the best ways to fully replenish your stamina bar in the field is to drink water. 

So how do you do it? 

How to Drink Water in Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Water canteen in Ghost Recon Breakpoint menu

To drink water in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, all you have to do is:

  • Open the in-game menu
  • Go to your loadout
  • Find your backpack in the bottom left corner
  • Find the square inventory slots just to the right of that
  • Click an empty slot
  • Assign the canteen to the slot

In the field, simply bring up your item wheel by pressing: 

  • R1 on PS4
  • RB on Xbox One
  • "Alt" on PC

Now, select the canteen and press the correct button to drink.

  • L1 on PS4
  • LB on Xbox One
  • "G" on PC

Keep in mind that the drinking animation puts you at risk of getting shot. It's not as long as the healing/bandaging animation, but it leaves you open to attack. 

You can only use the canteen after you've exhausted all of your stamina, and you can only use it once until you exhaust your stamina again. 

How to Refill the Canteen

Refilling the canteen with water

You can refill the canteen at any body of water. Simply wade into the body of water and wait for the "Water Refill" option to appear. Press the corresponding button, and your character will refill the canteen. 

  • "Square" on PS4
  • "X" on Xbox One
  • "E" on PC

You can refill the canteen in any body of water, no matter how dirty. Be wary, though, because this animation also leaves you open to attack. Refilling the canteen this way gives you three uses.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint How to Change Class Guide https://www.gameskinny.com/7ipop/ghost-recon-breakpoint-how-to-change-class-guide https://www.gameskinny.com/7ipop/ghost-recon-breakpoint-how-to-change-class-guide Thu, 03 Oct 2019 17:35:36 -0400 Sergey_3847

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. 

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint How to Change Class 

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.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bipod Location: Where to Find It https://www.gameskinny.com/dpwzj/ghost-recon-breakpoint-bipod-location-where-to-find-it https://www.gameskinny.com/dpwzj/ghost-recon-breakpoint-bipod-location-where-to-find-it Thu, 03 Oct 2019 16:07:53 -0400 Jonathan Moore

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. 

Ghost Recon Breakpoint map showing bald ridge bivouac and the fuel storage area of the Seal Islands

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. 

Bipod chest in the fuel storage area

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. 

Bipod Stats
  • -10% vertical recoil
  • -15% sway
  • +15% range
  • +15% time to aim

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Locked Doors: How to Open Them https://www.gameskinny.com/f0oo2/ghost-recon-breakpoint-locked-doors-how-to-open-them https://www.gameskinny.com/f0oo2/ghost-recon-breakpoint-locked-doors-how-to-open-them Wed, 02 Oct 2019 13:52:43 -0400 Ty Arthur

Nevermind all the people shooting at you, the real enemies in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint are the locked doors! Even explosives or ramming vehicles into the walls won't get those locked doors open, and there don't ever seem to be any keycards that work for them either.

That's a problem as you want to get inside, because they are frequently filled with tools, blueprints, EMP grenades, crates, and other loot. Luckily, there's a very simple way to get into the locked red light doors, although the game doesn't explain it at all.

Unlocking Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Red Light Doors

To get inside the red light biometric locked doors, you specifically need an enemy to be scanned by the biometric lock, and there are two ways to do this:

  • Take an enemy hostage and walk them towards the door
  • Kill the enemy, then pick up and carry the dead body towards the door, which will automatically unlock and open as you approach

Frankly that second method is the easiest. Note that even with this method, there are still some doors that simply can't be opened at this time. This seems to happen most often on the doors without the screens. It isn't clear yet if that's a bug, or if these doors are simply not meant to open at all.

Note that this method also specifically doesn't work with the Enemy of My Enemy Ghost Recon Breakpoint mission, which is bugged. If you can't get the blue light door open during this mission, unfortunately you need to completely reload the checkpoint by either exiting the mission area or just straight up dying.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint: How to Use Binoculars https://www.gameskinny.com/8ofq8/ghost-recon-breakpoint-how-to-use-binoculars https://www.gameskinny.com/8ofq8/ghost-recon-breakpoint-how-to-use-binoculars Wed, 02 Oct 2019 10:55:56 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint has a lot of tutorials, but none of them tell you how to use your binoculars or how to equip your binoculars. In Ghost Recon Wildlands, all you have to do is push "down" on the D-pad. Voila, that's how you use your binoculars. 

However, Breakpoint doesn't make things easy. If you look through the game's controls on console and PC, you won't even find an input or keybinding for using your binoculars. 

If you're as confounded as I was, there's hope. This guide will tell you exactly what to do. 

How to Use Binoculars in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint

To use your binoculars in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, open the Item Wheel. To open the Item Wheel, press and hold: 

  • R1 on PS4
  • RB on Xbox One
  • "Alt" on PC

Once you open the Item Wheel, look to the lower right-hand corner. Use your right thumbstick or mouse to hover over and select the binoculars. 

Doing so will equip your binoculars. You can now use them to tag/highlight enemies, making them easier targets on the battlefield. 

While you can certainly use your drone to tag and highlight enemies as well, it draws attention in the process. The binocs might be a more limited, analog approach, but they're stealthier, allowing you to scope out the enemy with less fear of discovery.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint: How to Hold Your Breath https://www.gameskinny.com/rvavm/ghost-recon-breakpoint-how-to-hold-your-breath https://www.gameskinny.com/rvavm/ghost-recon-breakpoint-how-to-hold-your-breath Tue, 01 Oct 2019 16:55:56 -0400 GS_Staff

If you want to steady your aim in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, you'll need to know how to hold your breath. As in many shooters, third-person or otherwise, holding your breath lets you take more accurate shots. Breakpoint is no different. 

However, doing so isn't as easy as in other games. Instead of pressing a thumbstick, for example, Breakpoint forces you into a more "realistic" motion.

Admittedly, it's a motion you have to get used to. However, it's one that better connects you to your weapon, whether that's an assault rifle, handgun, or sniper rifle. 

How to Hold Breath in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint 

To hold your breath, half-press the aim button. When you press, press lightly. Stop your finger about halfway through the motion of pressing down. Pushing the aim button all the way down initiates regular ADS, not what you want. 

Here is how you aim in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint:

  • L2 on PS4
  • LT on Xbox One
  • Space on PC

If you don't like how that motion feels, though, you can easily remap the action to another button or a control stick. Luckily, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint has a robust options menu that allows players to tweak a plethora of options, controls being one of them.
