Ghost Recon: Wildlands – Best Weapons Guide

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – Best Weapons Guide

Introduction:

Guns from all angles appear to be pretty even In Ghost Recon: Wildlands; however, we’ve come across a few good choices which have made our work as special agents much simpler. So, we’ve created this guide to finding the most potent guns within the game. We’ll try to add these guides as we move throughout the game’s release making sure to return shortly.

I had played this game for 78 Hours since release by the time I posted this guide. Here’s a screenshot of my Ghost with some stats and information on how I play the game:

Ghost Recon: Wildlands - Best Weapons Guide

Yes, I’ve unlocked all guns and weapon attachments within the game, from the chests for weapons and beating Buchons. Firearms purchased from Ubistore are not allowed.

I know that every person’s style of play will differ, and some of the weapons listed in the list may not be appropriate for you. I can only open all attachments and then play with the guns.

This is, however, an excellent starting point for players who are brand new to the game. There are a lot of weapons. If you don’t want to take the time to unlock every single weapon and its attachments, this guide is perfect and ideal for you.

Stealth:

Prioritize Noise Reduction and Accuracy to Stealth Gameplay. The most important thing to avoid doing when you shoot an opponent is for your shots to go unnoticed or not be heard. The weapon attachments you choose are up to you. However, I suggest using the one shown in the images.
