Ghost Recon Breakpoint Best Class and Builds
If you are unsure about your builds, check out our Ghost Recon Breakpoint Best Class guide to figure out how you can become a killing machine
One of the core mechanics of Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the ability to select a class to specialize in. You are presented with the option to specialize in one of 4 unique classes (although you are later given the option to change classes at your behest).
Choosing a class affects your playstyle, your abilities, and your position as part of a unit. Therefore, it’s imperative that when starting up the game, you know exactly what you’re about to get into, and what would be the best class for you to start Ghost Recon Breakpoint off with.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint Best Class
Firstly, you must be made privy to what exactly each class is and what it brings to the table. In this Ghost Recon Classes guide, you’ll learn the ins and outs of all the 4 classes.
A supporting class that also doubles as the perfect class for those wanting to hop into the fray by their lonesome. This is due to the Field Medic’s inimitable ability to self-heal via Medkit, and the Healing Drone on top of that; this pretty much makes the Field Medic the most difficult person to kill on the battlefield.
However, what really distinguishes this class is the ability to self-revive, something indispensable for those planning on tackling this game solo.
- Medkit: Can be used to heal yourself or allies
- Phoenix: Can self-revive when downed
- First Aid: Revives allies faster
- Pallbearer: Carry bodies much quicker than normal
- Healing Drone: Heals allies when you’re unable to.
This one doesn’t really require an explanation, but I’ll give one anyway. This is the brawler class, the class that boosts the highest damage; perfect for the players who wishes to go into every situation guns a-blazing!
- Gas Grenade: A powerful tool, especially against enemies who have fortified themselves
- Resilience: Extra health
- Assault Proficiency: Assault Rifles and shotguns are given bonuses
- True Grit: Increases damage resistance, and reduces recoil.
This can otherwise be seen as the stealth class. This class and everything therein is present to give you as much of an advantage in getting behind enemy lines without being detected, and to give you the tools needed to perform quick and silent actions, all of which amounts to a flawless and undetectable victory.
- Cloaking Spray: Enemy drones cannot detect you
- Silent Death: Handgun and SMG suppressors do not reduce damage
- In the Shadows: All stealth attributes are boosted
- Swift Steps: Movement speed increased
- Cloak & Run: Enemies are less likely to detect you.
If you don’t wish to get your hands dirty, or believe the mission is a bit too dangerous for a more personal approach, then this class is the one for you.
Specializing in long-range combat, this is for all those players who feel at home with a sniper rifle.
- Sensor Launcher: Mark enemies one-by-one
- Deep Lungs: Hold your breath for longer when aiming down the sight
- Long Range Proficiency: Bonus granted for Sniper Rifles and DMRs
- Armor Buster: Shots fired from sniper rifle ignore enemy armor resistance.
Now you know what each class entails, however, what must be noted are the Class Techniques. These techniques are essentially that particular class’s super ability, but it’s not something you can spam or use indefinitely.
Each Class Technique has a gauge that must be filled before that technique can be used. How you go about filling that gauge differs from class to class.
- Field Medic: To fill the Class Technique gauge, players can either revive allies, destroy or damage enemy drones, or simply have their teammates score kills.
- Assault: To fill the Class Technique gauge, players must destroy or damage enemy drones, kill enemies with the aid of explosives, or kill as many enemies in close-range as possible.
- Panther: As was the case for the previous two classes, you can fill the Class Technique gauge by destroying or damaging enemy drones; it can also be done by killing enemies in close-range, or killing enemies while in stealth.
- Sharpshooter: Repeating it ad nauseum – destroy or damage enemy drones to fill up the Class Technique gauge; or getting long-range kills or headshots.
Once the gauge is full, you’re able to exploit your Class Technique. None of these are too difficult to fill up, but you should still take into consideration the requirements for each Class Technique before deciding on which Class to pick first.
How to Change Classes
As I mentioned earlier, although you have to pick a class early in the game, you are allowed, later on, to change classes whenever you want to do so. The process to do so is a simple one, but for those not wanting to figure it out on their own, this short segment ought to make it clear.
Once you’ve unlocked the skills for another class (meaning you can now equip that class) go to a Bivouac. Once seated, you can access the ‘Tactics Option’, and it’s here that you’re able to change classes, and even equip preset loadouts.
It should be noted that you can only change your classes at a Bivouac, it cannot be done anywhere else; not even at the main menu. Therefore, before diving into any mission, consider your choices carefully and choose the class that best suits the present situation.
Someone unfamiliar with mechanics such as these would think, “Well, that wasn’t too bad. Not a whole lot to it.” That person would be wrong, but we know better, don’t we?
As expected, the classes are only the building blocks for what comes later. What might that be? Skill Tree!
Each class has a branch on the skill tree that specifically caters to it, however each class ultimately connects back to every single branch; in other words, choosing a class is of great importance in the short run, but in the long run it really isn’t all that important.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Best Builds
Now you’re aware of Classes and all the skills available in the Skill Tree… but to what end? Here’s the thing, you can create loadouts (character builds, in other words) that you can preset and load up at a Bivouac.
A loadout can be built for an explicit purpose; for extreme assault, or to height your stealth capabilities, or if you’re fighting long-range, have a sniper build ready to go.
By picking the right class and augmenting it with the proper skills, you can have a set of builds ready that have you prepared any and all contingencies.
The following are just a handful of builds that can be at your disposal, of course, these are only suggestions from us – it’s recommended that you test the waters and make a build that best suits your own playstyle, but if you want to give these a whirl, you’re more than welcome to.
Multi-Situational Soldier Build
This build is about helping you adapt to different situations. It has perks that give you solid all-around capabilities.
Recommended Weapons : Anything you are comfortable with.
- Gunslinger: You get weapon accuracy and enhanced handling.
- Burst Forth: Getting you bonuses for any perk this is an all-rounder.
- Sensor Hack: Sensor hack allows you to avoid enemy drones. Drones being the trickiest to deal with makes you an excellent fighter. It also enables you to give pretty good damage to the drones as well.
Heavy Gunner Build
When it is about raining bullets on your enemy, the heavy gunner is the build to go for. You are capable of constant fire and causing high damage.
Recommended Weapons : LMGs, Assault Rifles
- Pack Mule: If you are an LMG user this perk is for you. It also enables you to carry 40% more ammo.
- Close & Personal: Gives you increased reload speed. This can be very beneficial in close-up combat.
- Gunslinger: With enhanced handling and accuracy of your LMG no one can stop you!
The Squad Player helps you perform better when you are with your allies. This a co-operation focused build.
Class: Field Medic, Sharpshooter
Recommended Weapons: Whatever you’re comfortable with
- Inspired: A unique perk that helps you regain your health if an ally gets a kill. You can get a lot of benefit out of this perk if your group is good at sweeping the enemy.
- Recon Mastery: Grants you better technique cooldown when you mark an enemy with your drone, helping out both you and your buddies. Combines well with the Sharpshooter class.
- Revivalist: Helps you revive a teammate and proceed as a team. Leave no one behind!
If you want your explosives to be as destructive as possible then The Grenadier build is what you should go for.
Recommended Weapons : Whatever you’re comfortable with
- Explosives Expert: You get a bigger blast radius, longer range, and more damage.
- Feel No Pain: When you aim wrong and a grenade comes back at you, this perk makes you feel no pain!
Are you a fan of handguns? If yes, then The Sheriff build is for you. Dish out justice with your sidearm.
Recommended Weapons : Handguns
- Pistolero: Combined with the Panther’s Cloak and Run technique, it enables you to be an expert in hit-and-run tactics. Pistolero increases the damage and gives you an XP bonus.
- Gunslinger: Discussing the Sheriff build, and we don’t talk about the gunslinger perk, that is impossible. When firing successive rounds from a handgun, it is always an advantage to have more accuracy and precision.

Fisher has arrived on Auroa to stop a plan for the construction of mind-controlled drones. Sam Fisher is legendary when it comes to his stealth abilities, which are why players who choose to use the Echelon Class will be able to take after the fan-favorite character.

Ghost recon breakpoint class guide: which class should you pick.
Having trouble finding your Ghost Recon Breakpoint class? We run through each of the four classes to see which one may be suited to your playstyle.
So, you're playing Ubisoft's newest tactical open-world shooter Ghost Recon Breakpoint and just got your first skill point. You've opened up the skill tree to find four different classes to choose from: Field Medic, Assault, Panther, and Sharpshooter. Each of these classes has unique abilities, items, and proficiencies that takes advantage of certain play styles. This guide will give brief descriptions of each of the four Ghost Recon Breakpoint classes, and hopefully, help you find a class suited to your play style.
The Field Medic is a healing class that allows you to heal and revive both yourself as well as your teammates with ease. This particular class's proficiencies include First Aid, Pallbearer, and Phoenix; this essentially means you can revive faster, carry bodies faster, and can self-revive.
The Class Technique for the Field Medic, which is essentially a class's unique ability, is the Healing Drone. When activated, the drone will heal and revive teammates. In order to fill the technique gauge, you will need to revive fallen teammates, damage or kill drones, or get your teammates to earn kills. Additionally, the Field Medic's Class Item is the Medkit, which allows you to deploy a device that heals injuries and gain extra health.
The Assault class is a damage-dealing class that also gives you some durability thanks to its unique technique and proficiencies. Speaking of proficiencies, the Assault class's proficiencies include Resilience and Assault Proficiency; this means you will have extra health and injury resistance, as well as bonuses with assault rifles and shotguns.
The Gas Grenade is the Assault Class's Class Item; this item is thrown releasing a gas that deals damage over time. This is paired with the Class Technique, True Grit, which reduces recoil and makes you more resistant to damage. Kills while this ability is activated will also heal and extend its duration. To fill the Technique Gauge, you will need to get kills or deal damage to drones, garner kills with explosives, or get close-range kills.
The elusive Panther class is for those who want to be sneaky and engage in some CQC, similar to a certain Snake from a Nintendo fighting game that is kind of popular. Yep, that is where that character premiered. Definitely not a Hideo Kojima joint.
The Panther Class's proficiencies include In the Shadows, Swift Steps, and Silent Death; this gives you bonus stealth and faster movement speed. Additionally, suppressors equipped on handguns and submachine guns will not reduce damage.
Cloaking Spray is the Panther's Class Item which is applied to your character making them undetectable by enemy drones. Cloak & Run is the class's Class Technique which allows you to deploy a smokescreen. Filling the Technique Gauge requires you to get kills or deal damage to drones, earn kills while stealth, or get close-range kills.
The Sharpshooter is another damage dealing class that uses distance and powerful single-shot weapons to eliminate their enemies. Sharpshooter proficiencies include Deep Lungs and Long Range Proficiency; this gives you longer breath control while you aim down sights, as well as bonuses to Sniper Rifles and DMR weapons.
The Sharpshooter's Class Technique is Armor Buster; this gives you high-penetration bullets that can probably bust through some armor, as well as give you bonus damage and muzzle velocity. If you haven't noticed the pattern yet, filling the Technique Gauge for this class can be done by killing or damaging drones, as well as garnering headshot kills and long-range kills. The Sensor Launcher is the Class Item for the Sharpshooter, allow you to mark enemies within a large area.
Which Ghost Recon Breakpoint Class Should You Pick?
It really depends on your play style and what you think you will enjoy the most. After all, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a game and should be enjoyed. There are a number of ways to play effectively, and these classes take advantage of certain facets of those play styles. For example, I use the Assault Class because I like playing damage-dealing roles, and I like to be on the "tankier" side in terms of durability.
If you want to deal damage, you should choose either the Assault or Sharpshooter classes. From there, it depends on whether you favor health over damage. Sharpshooter will give you more damage but may be more vulnerable during close-range scenarios. Assault gives you more opportunities to heal yourself and stay alive during a gunfight, but you will be fairly ineffective during scenarios that favor long-range or may find armor busting bullets useful.
If you're looking for something a bit more "unique" in terms of play styles, go with the Field Medic or Panther classes. Both are very different from each other, but can certainly give you the edge in certain situations. The Field Medics ability to self-revive is great if you plan on playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint . It is also a very useful class during co-op play since you'll be able to more easily revive your teammates.
The Panther class is good for those who may want to avoid conflict at all costs. If you are calm and patient, stealthily taking out a group of enemies without getting caught is rather satisfying. This class takes advantage of that playstyle allowing you to deal more damage with suppressed pistols. The Class Technique also gives you an out if you are being overwhelmed.... or gives you a reason to get up close for the kill.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint Adds New Class and New Adventure
One of the Ghosts’ main adversaries is recruiting sinister new allies in a new branching storyline for Ghost Recon Breakpoint , but the Ghosts are fighting back with the new Pathfinder class, which can command a rogue Azraël drone to target foes with airstrikes. Episode 3: Red Patriot comes to Xbox One on September 15, and in addition to the new adventure and new class, this episode will bring PVP updates and a bevy of new items for Maria’s in-game shop to help you update your Ghost’s look and loadout.
By now, most Ghosts have crossed paths with Trey Stone, the nefarious head of the Sentinel PMC whose respect for human life leaves a lot to be desired. In the new story adventure, Red Patriot, Stone has recruited a Russian separatist group, the Bodarks, to plan attacks on American soil. Naturally, the Ghosts are having none of it, and they’re on the hunt to take down the Bodarks and put a stop to Stone’s plan. Across the 10 missions of this adventure, players will navigate a branching storyline and decide how to handle optional mission objectives to tailor their approach to stopping Stone. The first two missions will be free for all players, and they can purchase the full adventure from the Microsoft Store. Year 1 Pass owners will be able to play through all 10 missions, and players who complete the adventure will earn a bumper crop of rewards along the way.
As they size up their new enemies, the Ghosts will have some new tricks up their sleeves. The new Pathfinder class can call down airstrikes from a rogue Azraël drone flying high above, giving the Ghosts powerful air support to leverage in a fight. The Pathfinder’s class-specific tool is called the Uplink Protocol, a valuable item that recharges the airstrike ability and can only be found among well-hidden caches. Among the Pathfinder’s passive skills is the ability to highlight such caches, as well as a new kind of thermal vision called Scout Vision. Rounding out their unique set of skills is Wild Metabolism, a passive skill that makes the buffs from consuming rations last longer and have a bigger impact. Year 1 Pass holders will be the first to get more from their munchies (and, you know, the whole airstrike thing) with one-week exclusivity starting on September 15. After that, the Pathfinder will be free for all players to unlock.
For those who enjoy the taut, tactical showdowns of Breakpoint’s PVP mode, Ghost War, a new map is inbound, as well as three new missions tied to the Pathfinder and two exclusive rewards for efficacy with the new class.
It’s all coming to Xbox One in Episode 3: Red Patriot today, so pull on your Ghillie suit, load your co-op buddies into the chopper, and get ready to Ghost.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint - 10 Most Useful Ability Combinations
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint features classes that excel when certain abilities are combined in their loadouts, and here is a brief rundown of the best.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is a tactical shooter RPG that allows players to explore the untamed open world. Up to four players can team up and take part in missions across the map. Together, they complete story missions, events, and some other shenanigans. The game lets players choose from six distinct classes: Assault, Field Medic, Sharpshooter, Panther, Engineer, and Echelon.
RELATED: Red Dead Online: 10 Useful Ability Card Combinations
As an RPG, players have the freedom to give their characters a set of skills to tailor specific roles and playstyles. Some ability loadouts are better than others in specific situations. Some more for general use, while others are more specialized. With that being said, here are ten useful ability combinations in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
10 All-Around Combat
Assault + Burst Forth + Close & Personal + Gunslinger
The assault class is an all-around class that's proficient in Assault Rifles and Shotguns. The class' ultimate ability is an all-out Rambo mode wherein recoil is reduced, damage resistance is boosted, and killing heals the player. On top of that, the ultimate's duration extended for each kill, making the ability the perfect outpost sweeper. To complement this guns-blazing playstyle, 'Close & Personal' and 'Gunslinger' would boost the ghost's combat proficiency. 'Close & Personal' increases reload speed and movement speed while aiming down sights, while 'Gunslinger' increases accuracy and handling for every hit. In addition to these two combat abilities, the 'Burst Forth' ability allows the ghost to move faster, and regenerate stamina better. This whole set makes a lethal renegade capable of mowing down packs of wolves.
9 All-Around Survival
Assault + Adrenaline + Cold Blooded + Feel No Pain
Another useful loadout for the assault class would be the ability combo of 'Adrenaline' 'Cold Blooded' and 'Feel No Pain.' This makes the ghost a self-sustaining class who's hard to take down. 'Adrenaline' restores health on melee , but also increases reload speed and accuracy after each melee kill; allowing the user to eliminate all foes near the target. 'Cold Blooded' and 'Feel No Pain' are two crucial survival abilities that can help in combat. 'Cold Blooded' hastens health regeneration, while 'Feel No Pain' makes the user immune to critical injury and more resistant to leg-crushing falls.
Panther + Adrenaline + Sixth Sense + Gunslinger
The panther is a stealthy class that moves about nimbler and quieter. His ultimate ability has him disappear in a cloud of smoke so that all enemies lose sight of him. On top of that, suppressors have no damage debuffs for this class. As a sneaky saboteur, it would be redundant to give him sneaky abilities such as 'Slim Shadow.'
RELATED: The Division 2: These Are the Best Skills to Unlock
In this case, he could better utilize 'Sixth Sense,' a recon ability that immediately tags nearby enemies. This immediately spots threats and targets when sneaking about a base. 'Adrenaline,' the health-restore-on-melee ability, will also be maximized given the class' stealth. 'Gunslinger' would allow him to silently take out groups of enemies, and serves as an equalizer when spotted.
7 Anti-Drone Special Ops
Panther + Sensor Hack + Drone Hunter + Close & Personal
The panther class is hard to detect , but the eyes in the sky may say otherwise. 'Sensor Hack' makes it harder for drones, both on ground and airborne, to detect the user. The ability also boosts damage dealt to them. 'Drone Hunter' heals the user for every drone killed, and the effect also applies to allies. 'Close & Personal' increases reload speed and movement speed while aiming, allowing the user to better deal with drones and infantry units. This loadout doesn't deal exclusively with drones, but it gives the user an effective counter-measure against the pesky things.
6 Team Support
Field Medic + Revivalist + Inspired + Feel No Pain
The field medic can revive allies faster and carry their bodies much quicker to allow for an effective retreat. The class' ultimate ability is a healing drone that heals and revives teammates. The user can also use the ability on himself for a self-revive. The 'Revivalist' perk can maximize the medic's revive proficiency since the ability grants more movement and damage resistance buffs when an ally is downed. The 'Inspired' perk heals the user each time an ally kills an enemy. 'Feel No Pain' immunizes the user from crippling injuries, allowing the medic to perform his role better. This ability loadout adds to the team player attributes of the medic.
5 Battle Medic
Field Medic + Revivalist + Burst Forth + Cold Blooded
Because of the medic's self-revive ability, he is a force to be reckoned with even on his own. 'Burst Forth' makes him move faster and spend less stamina, allowing him to rush to the aid of his team. 'Cold Blooded' allows him to regenerate health faster. These two paired together give the medic better survivability.
RELATED: Ghost Recon Breakpoint: 10 Great Tips To Level Up Fast
This not only helps in sustaining the team but also helps the medic fend off foes and dish out damage. 'Revivalist' should come with the medic class like fries to a burger. Though it's not required, it's highly recommended to amplify his role.
Sharpshooter + Ballistic Advantage + Gunslinger + Cold Blooded
The sharpshooter is a marksman class that excels in long-range assassination, recon, and sabotage. His ultimate ability is activating his penetrating bullets with higher damage and velocity. As a long-range combatant, 'Ballistic Advantage' increases range and reduces recoil, and 'Gunslinger' increases accuracy and handling after every hit. This enables better handling of a sniper rifle . The regenerative 'Cold Blooded' ability allows the sniper to replenish health faster, enabling him to gun down the enemies that shoot at him with their medium-range Assault Rifles and SMGs. This also helps him to rinse and repeat once he's been spotted.
3 I See You
Sharpshooter + Rolling Thunder + Sensor Hack + Recon Mastery
It's important for a sniper to see his enemies. 'Recon Mastery' reduces technique cooldown, enabling for quicker deployment of the sharpshooter's penetrating bullets. 'Rolling Thunder' increases overall sniper damage, giving the sniper hard-hitting rounds. The faster technique recharge paired with the higher damage output allows the user to take out all tagged enemies even behind walls and cover. The 'Rolling Thunder' ability also buffs sniper damage to drones. 'Sensor Hack' makes the user harder to detect via drone, and also increases overall damage to drones. This gives the sniper a countermeasure to drones to compensate for a low rate-of-fire.
2 Behemoth Destroyer
Engineer + Drone Hunter + Sensor Hack + Explosives Expert
The engineer is a DLC exclusive free class that is ironically the demolitions expert of the crew. He does bonus damage to drones, and deals bonus explosive damage. This makes him effective against non-infantry units such as land-drones and manned vehicles. 'Drone Hunter' is a complement to his skills since it heals the user for every drone exterminated.'Sensor Hack' makes the engineer less likely to be spotted by drones, and also boosts his damage to them.
RELATED: The Division 2 Builds: Best Builds for PvE
'Explosives Expert' is the grand cherry on top. It increases the blast radius of all items, explosives especially. It boosts explosive damage, and increases the launch distance significantly. This loadout not only allows the Engineer to deal with pesky flying drones, but tanky land drones as well. Most especially the gargantuan behemoth .
1 Sam Fisher
Echelon + Pistolero + Slim Shadow + Sixth Sense
Ever wanted to be Sam Fisher? The Echelon class lets players do just that. Echelons are stealthy in the shadows, and have major handgun bonuses. The echelon's ultimate ability is Sonar Vision. This lets echelons see enemies through walls. As a class with mastery of the pistol , 'Pistolero' is the perfect complement to the class. On top of granting bonus pistol damage, this ability lowers technique cooldown when using a pistol, allowing the echelon to trigger sonar vision more often. 'Sixth Sense' tags nearby enemies as the echelon lurks about the base, giving him more environmental awareness. 'Slim Shadow' makes the user more stealthy and nimble, compensating for the echelon's lack of stealth over the panther. This loadout gives players the necessary skills to Splinter Cell a base Sam Fisher style.

What class to play first in Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Choosing which class to play first in Ghost Recon Breakpoint can be a difficult decision. Let us help you decide with this handy guide.
One of the first big decisions you’ll need to make in Ghost Recon Breakpoint is which class are you going to start out with. Thanks to four distinct options, all of which have fantastic perks to them, this decision can be a bit difficult to make. That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide, which will go in-depth into each class and discuss what makes each one tick, as well as talk about which class fits your playstyle best.
When it comes down to making the decision on which class to play first, it’s all about determining what playstyle best fits you as a player. In Ghost Recon Breakpoint, players will want to make use of their strengths at all times, which means determining which class fits you best. There are four available classes in Breakpoint, and they consist of the Field Medic, Assault, Panther, and finally, the Sharpshooter.
Unfortunately, you can’t play with AI teammates in Breakpoint, so having the best class is pertinent to your long-term survival.
Field Medic – Healing Drone
As the first available class, the Field Medic is perfect for those that enjoy playing support for their squad. This is also a great class for those who plan on playing through the game solo, as the ability to toss out a Medkit when your Class Technique is filled can be an exceptionally useful tool. The Field Medic’s as well Healing Drone Class Technique will also prove vital to healing allies in intense battles. This class specializes in the following perks:
- First Aid – revive allies faster.
- Pallbearer – Carry bodies much quicker than normal.
- Phoenix – Can self-revive when downed.
The Field Medic’s ability to self-revive is unmatched by any skill available in any of the other classes and this is what really sets this class apart from the rest. If you plan on playing through Ghost Recon Breakpoint aggressively and solo, then the Field Medic is one of the best options available to you. Otherwise, the medical abilities make this a perfect support/assault class, allowing you to easily move between supporting your friends and taking down enemies.
Assault – True Grit
As the most basic of any class available in Breakpoint, the Assault class specializes in being as hard-hitting as possible while reducing the player’s overall recoil and boosting their damage resistance thanks to the True Grit Class Technique. This makes the Assault class the go-to for front-line invasions of enemy strongholds, and the Gas Grenade class item makes for an exceptionally dangerous tool against foes that have burrowed down in defensive positions. The Assault Class’ proficiency perks include:
- Resilience – extra health.
- Assault Proficiency – bonuses with Assault Rifles and Shotguns.
The Assault class is the jack-of-all-trades, and this class will really fit anyone that’s looking to make their way through Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The Gas Grenade item is perfect for pushing enemies out into the open, and the improved bonuses with both Assault Rifles and Shotguns make it easy to run-and-gun with this class equipped.
You’ll want to make sure you have a great Assault Rifle if you plan on running the Assault class. Learn how to get the AK47 blueprint as soon as possible.
Panther – Cloak & Run
The third available class is for those that enjoy sneaking and taking down their enemies in silence. The Cloaking Spray class item allows the user to be undetectable by enemy drones, effectively making them invisible to any nearby enemy technology. The Cloak and Run Class Technique also makes it easy to vanish from enemy sights when you happen upon a well-hidden patrol. The Panther class specializes in the following perks:
- In the Shadows – Bonus to Stealth attributes.
- Swift Steps – Faster movement speed.
- Silent Death – Suppressors on Handguns and Submachine Guns do not reduce damage.
The Panther class is for anyone that enjoys staking out their enemy encampments and then making their way through the base one enemy at a time. Whether you’re going for headshots or melee kills, the Panther is the king of moving around without being seen, heard, or even thought about.
Sharpshooter – Armor Buster
When it comes to taking down heavily armored enemies, or just picking off enemies from afar, the Sharpshooter is the perfect class for the job. Equipped with class proficiencies that focus on long-range takedowns, the Sharpshooter is every sniper’s personal heaven all wrapped up into a class type. The Sensor Launcher allows you to easily detect enemies without having to mark them one by one, providing this class with all the tools it needs to be the perfect overwatch for any infiltration zone. This class includes the following proficiency perks:
- Deep Lungs – allows for longer breath control while aiming.
- Long range proficiency – grants bonuses with Sniper Rifles and DMRs.
The Sharpshooter’s long-range capabilities combined with it’s Armor Buster Class Technique make for a hurricane of greatness, granting players all of the power that they need to take out any enemy without ever even getting close to them.
Make sure you know how to get the TAC50 blueprint if you plan on playing as a Sharpshooter.
How to fill the Class Technique gauge
If you’re going to make the most of every class, then you’re going to want to learn how to best utilize each Class Technique. Like most “supers” in video games, the Class Techniques in Ghost Recon Breakpoint require you to fill a meter that will then allow you to trigger the technique. Each class relies upon a different set of Technique gauge fillers, which we’ll outline below.
Field Medic Technique gauge filler
Players utilizing the Field Medic class will want to focus on dealing damage to and killing drones. They’ll also receive additional points for reviving teammates, as well as points for any kills that teammates pull off. This makes it exceptionally easy to keep the Class Technique gauge filled with the Field Medic.
Assault Technique gauge filler
Those using the Assault Class will want to focus on scoring kills with explosives as well as by dealing damage to and killing drones. Finally, scoring close range kills will also fill the Assault Class’ Technique gauge, so get in close before opening fire at your enemies.
Panther Technique gauge filler
Like the other two classes we’ve already covered, the Panther will also receive points towards its Class Technique gauge whenever dealing damage to or killing enemy drones. Also, any close-range kills, as well as kills made from stealth will increase the number of points players receive towards their Technique gauge.
Sharpshooter Technique gauge filler
Finally, players can fill the Sharpshooter’s Technique gauge by dealing damage to and killing enemy drones, as well as by scoring headshots and long-range kills. Just make sure to line up your shots before you take them, as you don’t want the enemy storming your position while you’re trying to provide overwatch to your squad.
Now that we’ve discussed each of the classes available in Breakpoint, it should be much easier for players to determine which class they should play first when diving into Auroa this week.

Tactical Shooters To Play If You Loved Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
- Ready or Not: A tactical first-person shooter with in-depth gameplay and cooperative play that simulates real-world SWAT scenarios.
- Payday 2: Offers an arcade-style approach to combat with heists and planning stages, providing a lot of replayability and cooperative gameplay.
- Escape from Tarkov: A supremely tactical Battle Royale game focusing on gunplay, where players must use their skills and equipment to escape from dangerous areas.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint has been out for a few years, and while its reception was mixed, Ubisoft's tactical open-world shooter still has its positives.. In fact, the Ghost Recon franchise alone has been one of the few to keep the tactical shooter genre alive. Now, we're not going to pretend that the most recent iteration in the series has stayed completely true to its routes, but behind its massive Ubisoft open world is the blueprint for a good tactical shooter.

Still, if someone loved Breakpoint — or at least wanted to — there are a lot of games to tickle their fancy. Whether it's because of the big open world, or the strong tactical gameplay, there are titles that have both in plentiful supply. So, with that in mind, here are some of the best tactical shooters like Ghost Recon: Breakpoint .
Updated October 6, 2023 by Mark Sammut: This article has been updated with each game's specifications.
Ready Or Not
Ready or not.
Those who are looking for something tactical and rooted in the "real world" should check out the Early Access title, Ready or Not . This in-depth and tactics-based first-person shooter has players venturing out alone or joining forces via cooperative play to handle a series of situations as a member of SWAT. There are multiple issues to tackle, with events like raids, hostage situations, bomb defusals, and active shooters.
Anyone looking to step into the shoes of a SWAT officer and handle some of the things that they may be called to deal with on a daily basis could learn a lot from Ready or Not . It may not be superbly realistic to the real-world job at the end of the day but it's a solid tactical shooter that is showing a lot of promise.
One of the most engaging parts of tactical shooters is the idea that players need to be as planned and calculated as possible to carry out their mission. This is a concept that extends to Payday 2 , although players may have a much easier time with "staying alive" than they would in other games thanks to its fairly arcade-style approach to combat. The tactics and planning stage in Payday 2 comes from the idea that players are roleplaying as criminals and must use their wits and skills to pull off successful heists on stores, compounds, and banks.
Payday 2 offers a lot of replayability thanks to its extensive amount of content and the fact that players can play online, cooperatively with other players makes the game even more entertaining.
Payday 3 is also available, and its gunplay is generally an improvement. That said, it is stripped down compared to its predecessor.
Escape From Tarkov
Escape from tarkov.
There is something supremely entertaining and invigorating about winning a tactical shootout. Those who play Rainbow Six: Siege know how exciting it can be to pull off a particularly difficult win against an opposing team, but the Operators in Siege have access to some pretty fantastic equipment, as well as their own subset of abilities. Anyone who wants the same hard-as-nails tactical fight against other players but is looking for something that's purely gunplay-based might find a home in Escape from Tarkov .
The Battle Royale is incredibly tactical, with players using their wits, skills, and whatever equipment they can find to escape from areas overrun by players and A.I.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3
Developed by CI Games, the Sniper Ghost Warrior franchise doesn't have the best reputation, but it does get the tactical aspects of the genre right. The third entry in the series, which was released in 2017, offers a big open Soviet Georgia map that allows players to explore and attack. Though some budget issues hold it back from feeling like a living breathing world, it does offer a lot of choice in how missions are accomplished.
As the first open-world entry in the series, there are tons of side-quests available to work through as well. This means there's also a lot of variety in terms of what needs to be done during missions, so the game hardly ever gets boring. Players just need a little bit of tolerance for cheesy writing and less-than-stellar visuals.
Tom Clancy's The Division 2
If players like that typical Ubisoft gameplay style, then Tom Clancy's The Division 2 should already be in their collection. Released in 2019, this online multiplayer-focused shooter with RPG elements offers massive locations to explore and fight in. But it's not all shoot and loot; In fact, the core combat gameplay does feature a healthy dose of tactics. Positioning is increasingly important on the battlefield and if someone is playing with a group, squad management will play a big role too.
Mix in an interesting story that sees the fall of mankind thanks to a smallpox outbreak, and the result is a pretty solid title that's begging to be played for hours on end.
Gears of War 5
When gamers think about Gears of War , most probably think of burly men with incredible bass in their voice shooting Lovecraftian monsters with guns that feature chainsaws if they get too close. For the most part, that's correct, however, the revolutionary cover-based combat that most games have been copying since the first game's release on the Xbox 360 is probably the best part. Gears of War 5 offers that tried and true gameplay but makes everything feel that much bigger with a pseudo-open world that allows for some exploration, but really offers some fantastic strategical elements that feel both familiar and new at the same time.

One could argue that this is the best game in the franchise, and they'd have a point. At the very least, it's the most polished, and the first to really take a step forward in terms of gameplay evolution.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
Rainbow six: siege.
While Ghost Recon has always been the "tactical" franchise under the Tom Clancy umbrella, Rainbow Six offered a tinge of that mixed with more squad-based gameplay. S iege gives players everything they could want from the Rainbow Six side of things while giving players a dash of that much-desired tactical gameplay by allowing gamers to set up defenses and attack strategies similar to what some game modes of Counter-Strike have offered for years.
With a strong online community and some really inspiring gameplay, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege bridges the two franchises in a way we never saw coming, making it feel unique compared to what we've played from either series.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 2
For players looking for a little bit of tactical gameplay, but a little more competitive edge, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 2 is the perfect option. While this game won't offer wide-open worlds to explore, Counter-Strike has a fantastically strong online community making for some fast-paced and fun gameplay. Offering a wide variety of game modes pitting terrorists against counter-terrorist teams, players will need to be equal parts quick and tactical in how they go about taking out the terrorists or carrying out the terror.
Now, those new to the series may have a little bit of trouble keeping up at first, however, sticking with it is always worthwhile.
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Star wars republic commando.
There was a time, not too long ago, when the fine developers at Lucas Arts made their own tactical shooter in the Star Wars universe . The result was this fantastic title that offered gameplay that saw players control a squad of Clone warriors as they traverse through familiar locations like Kashyyyk and Geonosis. With a heavy emphasis on character, Star Wars: Republic Commando has a pretty memorable cast, each of whom has their own specialties that will help players make their way through the game. With players taking the role of squad leader, there is a bit of micromanaging when battle breaks out, but each character has enough anatomy to solve their own problems some of the time.
RELATED: Best Star Wars Games Ever, Ranked
In every way possible, Star Wars: Republic Commando was a major surprise in the best kind of way, and even almost 15 years later, it holds up extremely well. This is a title every fan of the genre needs to play.
Bohemia's tactical shooter ARMA 3 has a focus on realism , and that works in its favor. With a map that spans 270 square kilometers, the game is massive and graphically, it's stunning. The story focuses on a U.S. campaign on two islands in the Aegean Sea, as players take control of a corporal dealing with lone-wolf attacks and full-blown attacks. To take on these issues, players have access to an array of weapons, meaning there are multiple play styles to choose from.
The title has seen a lot of support too. With a number of DLC releases, ARMA 3 has an insane amount of content.
SOCOM 4 U.S. Navy SEALs
Developed by Zipper Interactive and published by Sony, SOCOM 4 U.S. Navy SEALs is everything a fan of the tactical genre could ask for in a game. Putting players in the shoes of an Ops commander in the middle of an all-out war zone, they must make battlefield decisions between stealth and chaos, direct their squad, and gather intelligence along the way. The title's deep combat system sees players enter a mental game of chess with the enemy, trying to maneuver and outmaneuver the baddies on the other side of the battlefield.
It's crazy to think this game was released in 2011, and Sony has not produced a sequel since, but the world needs more unique and high-quality content like this.
Sniper Elite 4
Developed and published by the fantastic minds at Rebellion, Sniper Elite 4 puts players in the middle of the Second World War era Italy as an allied — wait for it — sniper. With massive maps for players to explore Sniper Elite 4 offers a lot of choice in terms of gameplay mixed with some incredibly intelligent design — that takes things like distance, heart rate, wind, and more into consideration before taking a shot.
That gameplay is propped up with equally impressive writing and visuals, making for one of the best sniper shooters of the last generation. Its successor, Sniper Elite 5 , is also a very good game.
