THE GHOST ARSENAL

A few months ago, we introduced to you a first overview of the Gunsmith features in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands.
Weapon authenticity is at the very heart of the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands experience, and for the last four years we have been working with numerous experts to provide you with an extensive arsenal. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is about choices. Your choices. To adapt to any situation and to your own playstyle, you will have a large variety of more than 50 different weapons at your disposal.
The Assault Rifle is often considered one of the best multi-purpose battlefield weapons. This well-balanced automatic rifle can adapt to almost any situation due to its limited weight and great accuracy. The Assault Rifle’s modularity makes for easy customization, giving you access to a variety of attachments, such as the grenade launcher.
Deep penetration ammo, combined with a high rate of fire, makes the assault rifle particularly formidable in close and medium-range combat.

Light Machine Gun
Light Machine Guns are high-powered, fully automatic weapons with a high round capacity. The operator can utilize the LMG to provide suppressive fire for teammates, forcing enemies to take cover. The Light Machine Gun suffers from limited accuracy, and a moment may be required to stabilize its fire; however, its deep penetration ammunition can devastate any target.
Light Machine Guns are designed for medium range gunfights, but remember to take cover to reload.
Stoner LMG A1
Handheld, lightweight machine guns, Submachine Guns are fully automatic weapons that offer great mobility and stability. Ideal for short range combat, Submachine Guns are useful when flanking enemies or performing aggressive assaults. Limited recoil makes the suppressor the perfect companion for this weapon. Though Submachine Guns may eliminate targets within a few seconds, they are ineffective at long range.
The Shotgun is also an ideal weapon for short range gunfights. When firing shells loaded with multiple projectiles (shot), Shotguns can compensate for their poor accuracy with a large shot spread, making them especially useful in close quarters with single or multiple enemies. The skilled operator can make great use of them indoors, but be wary of the Shotgun’s high recoil.

On the opposite side of the spectrum from the Shotgun, the Sniper Rifle is the ideal weapon for the elimination of long distance targets. Its telescopic sights give the operator greater accuracy. This surgical precision, combined with deep penetration rounds, make the Sniper Rifle a deadly tool for your arsenal. Sniper Rifles are useful for clearing guard towers and eliminating patrols before infiltrating an enemy outpost. Due to limited reload times, headshots are often preferable.
In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, in addition to two primary weapons, the operator will carry a secondary firearm. Two options are available in this category: the compact machine gun and the handgun.
Compact machine guns are a “condensed” version of the SMG, focusing on mobility and an extremely high rate of fire. Muzzle control is an issue with this type of weapon, and the compact submachine gun’s accuracy is poor at long distances.
The handgun is a great secondary weapon in terms of mobility and handling, and they are often more precise than compact machine guns. There are several types of handguns, but generally speaking, they are particularly useful when infiltrating a facility or when caught reloading your primary weapon. Quickly deployed, handguns can be helpful in situations where reactivity is key. They are particularly formidable at short and medium ranges, but many handguns suffer from a low ammo capacity.
In the vast and dangerous Open World, you, the operator, will decide whether you eliminate your enemies from the shadows, or if you will decimate them in an aggressive assault. Every weapon in your arsenal has its own strengths and weaknesses, and a large selection of attachments will allow for further customization, giving the operator the exact tools he or she needs to complete the mission.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be available on March 7, 2017, for PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, and PC.
