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.
