Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands: off to beta registrations

Ubisoft has started welcoming registrations for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands beta, open-world strategic action-shooter title coming to consoles PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 7, 2017.

To register, simply log in with your Ubisoft account or register if you do not have it, decide on which platform to participate, if PS4, XB1 or PC, and wait for the beta to start in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, let’s see which weapons (some, because there are over 50 types provided) Ubisoft itself will make available to us for the new Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Assault rifle

The assault rifle is considered one of the best weapons in terms of versatility. Well balanced and equipped with automatic fire, it can adapt to almost any situation thanks to its low weight and great precision. The modularity of the assault rifle simplifies customization, giving you access to different accessories, such as the grenade launcher.
The high penetration ammunition, combined with the high rate of fire, make it a truly remarkable weapon in close and medium range combat.

Light machine gun
Light machine guns are high-powered automatic weapons with very large magazines. They can be used to cover companions with suppression fire, forcing the enemy to seek cover. They are not very accurate and sometimes it takes a few moments to stabilize the aim. However, the high penetration ammunition is capable of devastating any target.
LMGs are meant for mid-range combat, but remember to take cover to reload.

Lightweight and portable version of the machine gun, SMGs are automatic weapons that offer great mobility and stability, ideal for close range combat. They are useful for outflanking the enemy or for aggressive assault actions. Thanks to the limited recoil, the silencer is the perfect accessory. While they are capable of taking out targets within seconds, SMGs are not effective at long range.


Shotguns are another great weapon for close range combat. Thanks to the cartridges loaded with numerous pellets, they compensate for poor accuracy with a wide shot pattern, making them particularly useful when facing one or more enemies in tight spaces. The most skilled operators are able to make the most of them indoors, but you have to be careful of the strong recoil.

Sniper Rifle
At the opposite end of the shotgun, we find the sniper rifle, the ideal weapon to eliminate the enemy from great distances. The telescopic sight guarantees great precision. Surgical precision combined with high penetration bullets make it a lethal tool. Sniper Rifles are very useful for clearing out watchtowers and taking out patrols before infiltrating an enemy outpost. Due to the limited magazines, it is always best to aim for the head.


Secondary weapons
In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands, in addition to the two primaries, operators carry a secondary weapon that they can choose between these two categories: submachine gun and pistol.
SMGs are a “condensed” version of SMGs, designed to provide mobility and high rate of fire. Controlling barrel movement is difficult and long-range accuracy is poor.
Handguns are a great secondary weapon in terms of mobility and handling and are often more accurate than SMGs. There are several types, but in general they are very useful during infiltrations or when you are surprised by the enemy while reloading your primary weapon. They are quick to grip and very useful in situations where reactivity is essential. They prove particularly formidable at short and medium distances, but the magazines are not very capacious.

In the large and dangerous open world of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands, as Operators you can decide whether to eliminate enemies from the shadows or decimate them with an aggressive assault. Each weapon in your arsenal has strengths and weaknesses, as well as many accessories that will allow you to customize them further, giving you exactly the tools you will need to complete the mission.
