Learn how to drink water in Ghost Recon Breakpoint with the help of this quick guide.

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.
