GhostRecon: Wildlands

Dortmunder Jungs Ghost Recon Wildlands

SPECIAL OPERATION 2: TU15 PATCH NOTES

On July 24th, our second update of Year 2 will be released: Special Operation 2. This update will be available on PC, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One. The size of the patch will be 6GB on Steam, 18GB on Uplay and up to 18GB on consoles depending on your version. Please note that you will need to restart and update your platform to be able to play online.

FREE MISSION: OPERATION ARCHANGEL

Join Twitch on a mission to track down missing Operative in the Wildlands. Who is this Operative? Why are they here? Head over to Caimanes to launch Operation Revenge and find out. Completing Operation Revenge will reward players with Caveira Gloves, which include Caveira’s iconic CQC move, unlocking the position of all enemies within the vicinity in our Campaign Mode.

AI TEAMMATE TOGGLE ON/OFF

You can now play all of our PVE Campaigns entirely solo, with no AI Teammates. Simply toggle them off in the game menu for a true, lone wolf experience. Be careful however, as this mode means that each down is counted as a death since there is no one to revive you.

GHOST MODE

Ghost Mode is a new permadeath PVE game mode for those really looking for a challenge. This new, free mode will be accessible through the main menu and can be played in both solo and co-op, and at any difficulty setting. In Ghost Mode you’ll only have one primary weapon to accompany your pistol and you’ll need to really think about when to reload, since the remaining bullets in your clip will be lost. Choose your weapons carefully since they can only be swapped out at ammo boxes. And to up the realism, we’ve also added friendly fire.

The realism and challenge of Ghost Mode will not be without its rewards, however. We will be adding milestones you can reach in this mode that will bring Prestige Credits among other rewards. Stay tuned for more intel on the well-deserved rewards this new challenge will bring.

On July 24th, Year 2 Pass holders will have one week early access to Ghost Mode.

CHARACTER / AI CUSTOMISATION

You will now be able to change the face and gender of your character and AI Teammates at any time.

PROXIMITY MINES

Proximity Mines are now available in both PVE and PVP.

SOCIAL ITEMS

Things just got a lot more fun. We’ve added a new feature called "Social Items", which consists of 3 new item categories: Emotes, Voice Lines and Victory Poses, allowing you to further personalize your Ghost Recon Wildlands experience. These items are unlocked through Battle Crates and equipped via a new Social Page.

Social Wheel
In addition to the Comms Wheel, we now have the Social Wheel, allowing you to choose up to 5 Emotes and 5 Voice Lines to trigger. You can toggle between the Order Wheel and Social Wheel to access your Emotes.

Emotes
Emotes are character animations that can be triggered at any time, such as Face Palm, Lock and Load, and Air Guitar, just to name a few. A maximum of 5 Emotes can be equipped in the Social Wheel at one time.

Voice lines
Voice Lines are sound barks that your character says that can be heard only by your teammates or co-players. From tactical to banter, a maximum of 5 Voice Lines can be equipped in the Social Wheel at one time. So ‘Watch your flank, Hero!’.

Victory poses
Victory poses are stances your character makes in the victory screen at the end of a Ghost War match, which all players can see. These are triggered automatically and only one can be equipped at a time.

OBSERVER MODE

A player can now join a custom lobby in a dedicated slot and act as an observer of the match. They will have specific tools at hand that make the match more spectator-friendly, being able to see a player’s location, loadout, deployed items, and follow their point of view. Additionally, observers have access to a free-roam camera, allowing you to roam the battle field. A great way to watch matches, this is also a great tool for players who want to watch and organize tournaments!

NEW CLASSES: SURGEON AND TOXIC

Nodding reference to two veteran Rainbow Six Operators, Doc and Smoke, two new Classes have come to the Wildlands: get ready for Surgeon and Toxic.

Surgeon

Surgeon is an Assault class that comes equipped with the famous MPD-0 Stim Pistol. This lets him heal and even revive downed team members by shooting them with it. It has 5 charges and a cooldown, but it’s a strong ability that lets him turn the tides of battle and keep his team in fighting shape for long periods of time. This, together with Surgeon’s passive HP bonus, make him a strong front-line contestant.

Toxic

Toxic is a Support class that can operate a drone capable of shooting deadly sulfur bombs. These instantly create a gas area on impact that slowly but steadily damages all players caught in it, including allies. Toxic is extremely effective in negating cover for enemies, as the gas can infiltrate buildings, flushing them out for him and his teammates to take them down or stopping them in their tracks. As opposed to the Guerrilla class, the gas cloud does not blind players, and can be easily seen through.

These two Classes are available a week early through the Year 2 Pass, but can also be purchased with Prestige Credits one week post-update.

CLASSES: BALANCING

Trapper
We’ve increased the Trapper’s available gas mines from 2 to 3, and have decreased his cooldown time from 40 to 30 seconds. We have decreased the fire rate for the PSG-1, but increased the damage for both the PSG-1 and the G28 rifles. The Desert Eagle is also available to pick as a handgun.

Stalker
The Stalker can now destroy any drone with only 1 shot, and we increased the damage of the SRSA1 rifle.

Guerrilla
We’ve reduced the recoil of the Guerrilla’s FAMAS G2 rifle.

Echelon
We’ve reduced the speed of the Echelon’s sonar pulse, translating into a longer time interval between detecting enemies.

While using the sonar pulse ability, enemy player markers that are outside the screen area are now shown as out-of-screen markers, indicating the general direction of the ping.

MAPS

Elimination Mode: Checkpoint Map

Our first Ghost War snow map, Checkpoint, is a small Santa Blanca checkpoint at the crest of a small mountain ridge in Inca Camina, that will give you the opportunity for both long and short-ranged combat. The large, snowy hills are the perfect home for a sniper’s nest, while a dense Santa Blanca outpost has just the right cover for CQC teams to engage the enemy!

Sabotage Mode: Factory

Factory is an industrial factory that has been taken over by the Santa Blanca to hide cocaine. The elevated areas of this map help to provide a fun mix of fast-paced CQC and mid-ranged sniping. Make sure to always cover your teammates’ six!

DAILY CHALLENGES
Earn Prestige Credits by completing our new Daily Challenges for Ghost War. You will receive one challenge each day, and can have a maximum of 5 open challenges at a time. They reward you with Prestige Credits depending on their difficulty and can be removed at any time to make space for new ones. Additionally, once per day, you can re-roll a challenge to instantly receive a new one in its place.

RANKED

Progression Bar
We’ve introduced a Progression Bar that tracks your Ranked progress and gives you feedback upon losing and winning matches. Now you can know your position in the current league, and how close you are to promoting or demoting Rank.

Elite Position
The Elite Rank will now tell you your exact position in that league, compared to other Elite players. Hence, your position may change depending on the progress of other players, even when you don’t engage in Ranked matches.

Double XP Event
A double XP event will now take place two times per week, each time lasting for 24 hours. This will double all XP sources inside a Ranked match, and will be showcased in the menu whenever it’s live.

PRESTIGE REVAMP

The Prestige system and economy has been reworked to meet community feedback, to offer a more dynamic Ghost War progression experience.

Prestige Progression
Prestige will now be automatically activated upon reaching Level 50, after which you begin again at Level 1. Your unlocked classes, perks and bonuses will not be reset anymore upon activating your first level of Prestige. Every upgrade point will be automatically spent to unlock all non-prestige progression tree items. The Prestige level cap has been increased from 10 to 999, while the Prestige Credits reward per level-up has been decreased from 215 to 115.

Prestige Crates
We’ve introduced a new type of Crate called, Prestige Crates. Prestige Crates can only be purchased with Prestige Credits, each one containing a customization item. From now on, new customization items will be added to our Spec Ops and Ghost War Battle Crates, whereas Prestige Crates will contain previously released items (minus Icons, which remain available via our Battle Crates only). You can find the full list of all of our Battle Crate Items here[ghostreconnetwork.ubi.com].

Additionally, we’ve introduced a counter that increases by 1 for every new item gained from a Prestige Crate. For any duplicate items received, the increment counter increases by 1 and you will receive 10 Store Credits. Every time the counter reaches 20, you will receive a free Battle Crate and the counter resets itself.

Prestige Store
The Store has been reworked and now features two different tabs – the Store and the Prestige Store. In the Prestige Store, you can buy any item that costs Prestige Credits, like Classes, Armory Packs, or Prestige Crates. This will also allow you to choose your preferred currency, between Prestige Credits or Store Credits, when buying Classes.

Armory Packs
Armory Packs are an exciting way to further customize your Ghost War Classes. Purchasable via Prestige Credits, Armory Packs contain weapons that are currently available in the Campaign, but may not already exist in Ghost War. Additionally, they are Class-specific. Head over to your Progression Tab to use your Prestige Credits to unlock new weapons for your Classes.

Prestige Credits
Along with the new Prestige Economy, we have added some new ways to gain Prestige Credits. You can now gain them not only by unlocking Prestige in Ghost War, but via progression through the Campaign challenge system, Ghost Mode and Tier 1 Mode. PVP voting, PVP progression, and PVP Ranked Seasons will also yield Prestige Credits.

PC MENU TEXT CHAT

We have added the possibility for players to text chat inside the PC menus, either with every player inside the session, or simply with their own squad.

POST-MATCH SCREEN

We introduced a new post-match screen where the winning team is showcased along with info about its members, while also showing their equipped victory poses.

PLAYER SQUAD SHOWCASING

You can now see which players are in a squad while matchmaking and playing online.

DRONES

All Drones have had their maximum marking range decreased to 250m: Drone HUD’s will now signal this.

STORE UPDATES

Battle Crates
Spec Ops and Ghost War Battle Crates have a new range of customization items.

Icon Skins
We’ve added new Rainbow Six Siege Operators to our current list of Icons: Jäger, Blitz, Zofia, Vigil, Blackbeard, Capitao and Jackal. Icons are only available through our Battle Crates.

Rainbow 6 Equipment Pack
This Rainbow Six Siege themed pack contains items that will help you achieve the look of your favorite Siege Operators. For both PVE and Ghost War, the Pack Revenge will contain a 1 Hole Balaclava, a Wrapped Shemagh, a Caveira Icon (including her iconic CQC), and a new Voice Line and Emote. The pack will also contain the 416 Rifle and the Luison weapon skin that are both available for use only in PVE. Please note that Caveira Gloves only unlock the position of nearby enemies in PVE.

Special Operation 2 is coming

Greetings Ghosts,

We have been thrilled to see your reactions to the announcement of the second year of content for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, and the release of Special Operation 1. And now, releasing on July 24, Special Operation 2 will bring even more content for all of our players.

https://youtu.be/JTt8pCROSCU

Special Operation 2 will include a new strong theme, PVE experiences, Ghost War updates, as well as community-requested features. Let’s dive into more details:

Ghost Mode: Ghost mode is designed for the best of the best Ghosts out there. In this mode, you’ll be able to create a new character in order to take down the Santa Blanca under the most thrilling conditions.

  • With only one primary weapon by your side, you’ll need to choose carefully. You will only be able to change your loadout at either an ammo box, or by looting fallen enemies.
  • You will also need to plan out your reloads, as any remaining ammo in your magazine will be lost.
  • Be extremely careful with your shots, Ghosts, or you could bring down your co-op team with friendly fire.
  • And most importantly, with Ghost Mode, death is permanent. So stay frosty.

    Ghost Mode will be available for all difficulty settings, including Tier 1 Mode. And of course this challenge doesn’t come without rewards: more to come on that in our patchnotes. So put your skills to the test and reap the benefits that will come with success!

    This free mode will be available for all players, with a week-early access for Year 2 Pass holders starting on July 24th, 2018.

    True Solo: Those who are truly looking for a lone wolf experience can now toggle off their AI teammates in both our Campaign and Ghost Mode. Up for the challenge?

    New PVP Maps: We have two new maps coming to Ghost War, including a highly community- requested snow map.

    Victory Screen: The taste of victory will be made even sweeter with the return of the Victory Screen at the end of Ghost War matches. The winning team will now get to show off their customization and victory poses after a well-earned win.

    Observer Mode: Take your Ghost War experience to the next level with our brand new Observer Mode. Simply go into Custom Matches to both watch and showcase your Ghost War games. Game on!

    Ghost War Challenges: New daily challenges will now be available in Ghost War, rewarding players with Prestige credits for their extra hard work.

    Prestige Economy: You shared your feedback, and we heard you! Special Operation 2 will bring an overhaul of our Prestige economy. You will now be able to earn Prestige Credits not only in Ghost War, but also in the Campaign too (including Ghost Mode). A new tab in the Store will be added to allow you to spend your Prestige Credits not only on Ghost War Classes, but on Prestige Packs too, which include customization items.

    Year 2 Pass Updates: Not only do Year 2 Pass owners gain week-early access to all Ghost War Classes, they will now also enjoy a week-early access to Ghost Mode, starting on July 24th. The Year 2 Pass also includes the Splinter Cell Gear Pack and 8 Battle Crates. You can purchase a Year 2 Pass here.[store.ubi.com]

    New Customization Items: More than 100 new exclusive items have been added to our Battle Crates, including new Emotes, Voice Lines, customizable weapons, vehicles, and more!

    This is all the intel we have to share on Special Operation 2 for now. But more to come on our new theme, PVE missions, and two new PVP Classes.

    Stay tuned, Ghosts.

Patch Notes for Update 4: New Assignment

On March 14th, we will be releasing our next update, New Assignment. This update will be available on PC, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One. The size of the patch will be 4 GB on Steam, 15 GB on Uplay and up to 15 GB on consoles depending on your version. Please note that you will need to restart and update your platform to be able to play online.

New Assignment will bring a range of new content to Ghost War, including three new classes, Trapper, Stalker and Guerrilla. We have also introduced a new map-voting tool, allowing players to vote for one of three possible maps at the start of every match. We have also added two new maps, Refinery and Cliffside, for Extraction mode.

Refinery

This industrial factory is the largest cocaine lab in Bolivia. With a large defender area and multiple pathways, this map allows for varied gameplay and extraction approaches.

Cliffside

Once a Rebel stronghold, this village is now under the watch of the Santa Blanca. With tall buildings and snipping vantage points, Cliffside offers new tactics for Extraction mode.

For our Campaign mode, we have exclusively added more Fallen Ghosts weapons. Additionally, our Rainbow Six Siege Icons can be now collected via both our Ghost War and Spec Ops Crates, meaning they are available for customization in Ghost War as well as our Campaign.

Ghost War | New Content

CLASSES

We have introduced three new classes: Trapper, Stalker, and Guerrilla. All of them are available through the Season Pass and the Ghost War Pass, and can also be purchased with Prestige Credits.

Trapper

The Trapper is a Marksman that has both a passive ability and an active one. The passive ability permanently marks downed enemies on the HUD and map for all teammates. His active ability lets him place knock-out gas traps from a distance, damaging and stunning enemies that enter their area of effect.

Stalker

The Stalker is a Marksman class that has two passive abilities. Enemies beyond a certain distance will not hear her shots or see any sound markers. Also, enemies marked by the Stalker do not receive any notification, as long as no other players mark them. These abilities allow the Stalker to quietly follow her prey from long-range before silently taking them out.

Guerrilla

The Guerrilla is a Support class with a drone that can shoot smoke grenades. All players inside of the smoke radius are occluded, meaning they become unmarked if they were marked, and additionally, drones, aiming or binoculars cannot mark them. The smoke can have many tactical uses, from creating a safe cover to reviving downed teammates and to temporarily blinding an enemy sniper.

MAPS

New Maps

We have added two new maps, Refinery and Cliffside, to the Extraction game mode. Both of these maps are now available in Quickplay, Ranked, and Custom Matches.

Map Voting

We have introduced a new feature that allows players to vote for one of three possible maps, each from a different game mode, at the start of every new match. The voting process only takes 15 seconds, and players can see details for each map, including game mode, time of day and weather settings. Map voting is available for both Quickplay and Ranked.

Ghost War | Updates

CLASSES

  • Tech: The Tech’s jammer will not appear on the HUD for the enemy team anymore, as this was giving away the Tech’s position. Now the Tech can safely place a jammer without being exposed.
  • Mine Defusing: We have introduced the ability for players to defuse enemy mines. By approaching the mine while prone, the mine’s detonation range is reduced, allowing you to safely get closer to the mine until the "defuse" prompt appears. Defusing a mine will remove it without alerting its owner.

MAPS

  • Ruins Map: We have reworked the Ruins map to improve its balance. The playable area has been expanded, we added more cover for crossing certain key locations and we relocated most objects on the map, including the spawn locations.
  • Institute Map: We changed the Attackers spawn position to add more variety to the map, and moved the hostage cages closer to each other so the Defenders team can move faster from one hostage to the other.

ADDITIONAL

  • Penalties: Penalty timeouts have been reduced, as they were too long and severely punished players who were experiencing connection issues.
  • Prestige Credits: There was a big discrepancy between players with high Prestige level and players with low Prestige level, concerning the amount of Prestige Credits they earned per level-up. To address this, we now award a flat value of 215 Prestige Credits, no matter the Prestige level (the total sum remains the same). We also gave players the extra amount of Prestige Credits they should have earned with this new system in place, so that everyone now has the correct amount.
  • New Tutorial Info: Our tutorials have been updated to include changes to existing features and the introduction of our new classes. Knowledge is power, so make sure you read them!

In Extraction, teams take turns in defending or attacking a compound to extract a hostage to safety. Two hostages are located on the map, but only one of them needs to be extracted to win the game. If you are in the defending team, you role will be to prevent the opposite team from grabbing the hostage located inside your safe zone. The attacking team has to localize the hostage, grab them and escort them to their own safe zone, without being killed by the defending team.

FULL CHANGES LIST — Ghost War

Classes

  • Sentinel & Pathfinder: Fixed an issue where the Sentinel and Pathfinder firing shot sound was not heard by teammates and enemies.
  • Artillery: Fixed an issue where by launching a mortar strike, the player’s position would be revealed on the tacmap.
  • Predator: We have removed the Predator’s Assault-specific HP bonus and reduced the HP gain when activating Adrenaline Rush. The Predator will now be more vulnerable, while still remaining extremely lethal and versatile.
  • Medic: The Medic’s drone will now be marked for the enemy 1 second after being launched, instead of the 6 seconds that the other drones get. This will give enemy teams more time to react to a Medic’s revive attempt and try to counter it.

Maps

  • Warehouse: We fixed an exploit which allowed players to rush to the top of the building and gain an unfair advantage on the enemy team.
  • Jungle base: We blocked off the upper area of the main building to avoid camping and negative gameplay experiences.
  • Urban Incursion: We’ve moved the Uplink location in order to focus the gameplay in a more open area.
  • Fixed several map level design issues.

Ranked

Please have a look at our Ranked Mode FAQ for more information about the Ranked mode. All Ranked changes will be applied at the start of the second season, start of February.

  • Player Rating: The Matchmaking Rating (MMR) is now calculated at the end of a match, instead of the end of a round. This way we avoid frustrating situations where players would win the match, but decrease in rank because they have lost one or two rounds against a lower rated team. This also means that the placement rounds will be removed and replaced by placement matches.
  • Matchmaking: Because we now take into account full match outcomes when calculating ratings, players will not be able to join ongoing matches anymore, because it would be unfair to join a match where the enemy team is already leading. Also, when completing a Ranked match, players will not be dropped to the Menus anymore. Instead, they will keep being engaged in the matchmaking process in order to let them play consecutive matches without having to restart matchmaking each time they finish a match.
  • Penalties: Leaving penalties are now more severe in Ranked Mode, in order to discourage and punish players from leaving an ongoing match as this will have a much bigger impact on the game. Quickplay penalties have not been changed.
  • Fixed an issue where an incorrect warning message was displayed on the Ranked button for the case where the next strike would grant a penalty.

Prestige

  • Fixed an issue where the Prestige points were not displayed on the end screen results page, when ranking up.

Custom games

  • Fixed an issue where, in Custom Match sessions with players in only one team, would end right after player’s spawn.

Uplink

  • Fixed an issue where a wrong sound bark was played if the round was won by eliminating the enemy team in Uplink game mode.

User Interface

  • A compass has been added at the top of the in-match HUD screen so players can use it either for callouts or to better navigate the map.
  • Added Colorblind mode

PC

  • Fixed an issue where the Scope category items would remain set if they were highlighted with the mouse and not selected.

Store:

    *Added Ghost War Crates. For more information, please read our FAQ.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where the Player could holster the weapon by canceling the capture of recon tower or Uplink, right before it begins.
  • Fixed an issue where you could see the drone’s rotor blades while spectating a player.
  • Fixed an issue related to character collision and throw-able items on some body parts.
  • Fixed an issue where downed players that were inside a mine radius could not be revived after the mine has exploded.
  • Fixed an issue where a mine could be triggered by the player if the mine was placed above ground, on an object, and the player would step on the ground next to the mine.
  • Fixed several HUD display issues.
  • Fixed several text issues.
  • Fixed an issue where the Uplay Rewards popups were displayed each time you enter Ghost War (the issue only impacted some accounts).

CAMPAIGN CHANGES

Weapons

  • Fallen Ghost weapons are now available in the main game after installing the DLC
  • Fixed a recoil bug on the R4 and MDR weapons.

User Interface

  • Added Colorblind mode.
  • Fixed a bug on Helicopter Controls HUD elements.

Store

  • Added Spec Ops Crates. For more information, please read our FAQ.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug when the explosion didn’t go off after killing the Predator for some players.

GHOST RECON NETWORK CHANGES

  • Added the list of all the items available in Battle Crates, so that players can assess which items they do not have yet.

GHOST RECON HQ APP CHANGES

  • Added Tacmap support for the Extraction mode in Ghost War.

GHOST WAR CHANGES

Ranked mode

Ranked Mode is now available in Ghost War! It is unlocked at level 15 and will challenge you to climb the ranks from Bronze to Elite. You can read everything you need to know about this new ranked mode in our FAQ article.

New classes

A new Marksman class has been added, called Pathfinder. Equipped with a crossbow, his light step does not trigger mines, he cannot be detected by Scout’s Drone motion sensor, marked by drones or the Sentinel’s Satcom Tracker. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will have immediate access to the class, while the other players will be able to purchase the Pathfinder with 4000 Prestige Credits after a week, in the usual skill trees. The class can also be unlocked in the in game store against Credits.

A new Assault class has been added to the game. The Predator is a reliable and versatile frontline fighter, equipped with either an M16 rifle or the MG121 LMG. His Battle Rage ability grants him all the Adrenaline bonuses for a short time: increased health and regeneration, suppression immunity and faster revive. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will have immediate access to the class, while the other players will be able to purchase the Predator with 4000 Prestige Credits after a week, in the usual skill trees. The class can also be unlocked in the in game store against Credits.

New maps

New maps are added to Quickplay, Custom games, and Ranked rotation for both Elimination and Uplink game modes. Ruins and Jungle Base are added for Elimination and Scrapyard and Urban Incursion for Uplink.

Jungle Base

A small Bolivian village supported by open fields and a central massive communication center. Jungle Base is an urban environment with surrounding foliage for flanking, and elevated areas perfect for snipers. Between the buildings and bushes there are plenty of places to hide, so make sure your team is watching your back!

Ruins

Located in the forest valley, Ruins is surrounded by trees. The middle of the map has spacious areas between buildings. Be mindful of a sniper’s gaze or an assassin’s sneaky attack.

Scrapyard

A Santa Blanca hideout used to store and move cocaine to a nearby airfield, Scrapyard is a sparse, urban style environment. The middle of the map is full of right corners, so be prepared for some close combat!

Urban Incursion

A Bolivian town on the slopes of Inca Camina, this map is a moderate density urban environment for players to enjoy urban warfare. This map offers a bit of a different style and pacing from the normal Ghost War match.

Character customization presets

Three customization presets are now available to use with each class. Every customization done on a preset slot will be instantly saved. With the addition of the presets, the full customization is only available outside a match to speed up the player ready process.

We have also added a Costumes option to character customization and 5 class packs — Tech, Sentinel, Medic, Assassin, and Enforcer.

Players Stats Page

We have added a page in game in which you can view all of your stats. Weapon stats have also been added to the Gunsmith page.

Quit penalty system

We reworked our penalty system for quitting a match while it’s still ongoing. We added strikes-outs, temporary ban penalties and warning popup to make sure the player is conscious of the sanction. The ban are going from 10 minutes to 4 hours at most and the strikes are disappearing after a 2 hours long probation without a new quit. Also, keep in mind that if you leave a match before the end, you will still receive a defeat but no victory, depending on your squad result. For more information about this system, please read our Ranked mode FAQ.

Ranked Mode FAQ

With Update 2: Jungle Storm, we brought a new ranked mode system. You can now compete against the others to climb the ladder and sit at the top. In order to help you doing so, you will find all the explanations you need below.

How to unlock the ranked play?

Ranked play becomes accessible once you reached level 15. If you have already reached Prestige, this limitation do not apply to you.

How does it work?

The ranked games are divided between Seasons of two months each. A Season starts on the 1st of the month and ends two days before the end on the second month. At the beginning of each Season, you will have to finish 15 placement rounds.Your results during these placement rounds will determine what your starting rank is for the ongoing Season. The rank of every player is reset at the beginning of every Season; nothing is granted forever. Afterward, it will be up to you and your squad to improve your rank or remain at the top.

How does the progression work?

Players are divided in 6 brackets based on their Matchmaking Rating: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Elite. Once you played the 15 rounds of placement of a Season, you’ll be assigned to one of these brackets. Afterward, based on your round win/lose count, you will go higher or lower in the brackets. Players who achieved Gold or higher won’t drop down to Silver or Bronze that season, however.

Where will people see my rank?

The game displays the rank of a player with their nametags. Thus, you can see other players’ rank in the match lobby, on the tacmap, on the end-screen and in the sum-up of the match. This is also where other players will see your own rank!

How does the matchmaking work?

Ranked is a new matchmaking mode, in which you’ll be able to play both Elimination and Uplink. Players will be able to select either Quickplay/Custom/Ranked from the main menu.

In Ranked Mode, players start with their Quickplay MMR, not from a baseline. For this reason, it is possible for people to play all Ranked matches together and end up in different leagues. This will eventually even out if they keep on playing together.

The MMR of players, in both Ranked mode and Quickmatch, is based on the results of the individual rounds and not on the outcome of the entire match. For this reason, it is possible sometimes to be demoted after winning a match, especially after a 3-2 result. This will happen if the opposing team has a MMR lower than the match winners. The amount of MMR gained and lost after a round depends on how big the initial MMR gap was, so it is possible for the 2 losses in a 3-2 match to matter more than the 3 wins.

Only two things impact a player’s MMR after a round. One of them is winning or losing. The other is the standing of each player before the round. A player will lose less MMR after an “expected” loss, faced with a higher MMR opponent, and will lose more MMR points after a loss against a lower opponent (and the same is true for how many points they win after a victory). This behavior is exactly the same as in all games that use an Elo or Glicko type of system.

What are the rewards?

Every completed ranked match will grant a bonus XP. Every new bracket promotion will grant bonus Prestige credits. At the end of a Season, players will earn XP boosters and Prestige credits based on their bracket.

What are the leave penalties?

Leaving an ongoing ranked game will grant the player a strike that will disappear after a probation time or accumulate with other strikes if he keeps quitting ongoing ranked games. When strikes start cumulating, the player will receive a warning pop-up to confirm he will receive a temporary ban penalty if he chooses to leave the match. The penalties will then increase from 10 minutes to 4 hours.

Ghost Recon Wildlands – Legendary Movie Monster, The Predator, Coming in Free DLC

A deadly new threat enters Ghost Recon Wildlands this week, armed with powerful weapons, advanced stealth abilities, and more mandibles than seem strictly necessary. From December 14 through early January, the Predator will bring its unique skills to a special challenge that sees players (solo or with up to four players in co-op) hunting the creature—and being hunted in return. Defeating the Predator will be no easy task, but if players manage to take it down, they will be rewarded with exclusive items, including the Predator mask, which features Predator vision. To help you fully embrace your inner hunter, the Predator Pack (available in the in-game store) introduces 15 new customization items inspired by the original movie, including weapons and a new close combat move.

https://youtu.be/cokpaG9SyiE

Ghost War, the free PVP mode for Ghost Recon Wildlands, will also get a Predator-inspired addition: A new class of soldier inspired by Dutch, the protagonist from the original movie, who can engage a battle rage mode to tip the scales in his favor.

“At Ubisoft Paris, we have been fans of the Predator for a long time and are thrilled to bring such an iconic character to our game” said Nouredine Abboud, senior producer at Ubisoft. “The challenge is full of references to the original Predator movie, and we cannot wait to see the reaction of our players!”

We got to chat with Abboud to learn more about where the idea to bring the Predator into Wildlands came from, and how they designed the hunt to capture the deadly tension of the movie.

The Legends of the Wildlands have previously been rooted in the setting and history of Bolivia. What motivated you to look elsewhere for inspiration?

The Legends of the Wildlands really began as easter eggs for the community. When we first saw videos of our players showing their passion, we thought it would be interesting to play up to their expectations, while at the same time building on the incredibly rich Bolivian culture.

When our Fallen Ghost DLC was released, we were amazed by the feedback we got from the community members, who praised its more somber tone and its tactical approach. But what we sensed was that there had to be a Predator hiding somewhere, observing us in the jungle setting of the DLC. That’s where the idea originally started.

How did this process even start? What did the team need to do first?

When we realized in June that this year was the 30th anniversary of the original Predator movie, the coincidence was too great to pass up. We have a very good relationship with 20th Century Fox, and they were as excited as we were to let the Predator fight the Ghosts in an environment that fit their vision, so it was an exciting and fruitful discussion. Our team learned everything they could about the Predator, not only by studying the original movie, but also through exchanges between our artists and the creatives at 20th Century Fox.

What was the reaction for the team when they found out they would get to work with one of film’s most popular sci-fi characters?

The entire team was ecstatic, especially the creative team in Montpellier. Our team appreciates the original Predator movie just as much as our community does, and everybody involved had a clear vision of the direction we could give to this special challenge. I have to say that Tom Isaksen, our lead character artist, has done a tremendous job of recreating the original Predator, taking care of every costume detail. It was a great challenge.

What aspects of the Predator did you know you’d absolutely have to nail to convey the same suspense that’s present in the movies?

The mission is built to recreate some of the tension felt by Dutch and his crew in the original Predator movie. You first discover hints about the Predator’s presence before actually getting to meet and fight him. Getting that feeling of being swallowed by the surrounding jungle was something we really wanted to convey. And of course, the music takes a big part in creating the tension.

Along those same lines, what were the challenges in balancing the Predator’s abilities with the systems that already exist in Ghost Recon Wildlands? What can the Predator do, and what do the Ghosts need to do to fight it?

The Predator can run around, jump in the trees, taunt the Ghosts, and activate his cloaking device. Once he wants to engage you, he can use his Plasma Caster or his Smart Disc, depending on the situation. Being able to quickly react and always keep on your toes will be the key to defeating the Predator.

How did you approach calibrating the difficulty level for this encounter? How much of a challenge are you throwing at players?

We know that the Predator is the best hunter there is, and we really wanted our players to feel he was a great menace. The talented game designers in Montpellier tweaked the gameplay to make sure this would be the most difficult fight players could find in Ghost Recon Wildlands, especially when you approach it solo. To prevail, we think the Ghosts will need to work as a unit, so we advise our players to try out this challenge in four-player co-op with a lot of coordination and communication!

Will the Predator ever try to blow itself up?

That will be for you to find out.

[UPDATE] XP Issues in Ghost War

Hello Ghosts,

We have heard concerns over the bug related to the amount of XP shown as being received after every match in Ghost War. Some players have been reporting that they are being shown negative XP points being earned. We wanted to take a moment to address this issue.

It seems to only be impacting players who began leveling prior to the October 24 update and is only on the player facing side. In other words, it only looks as if you are not being awarded XP properly, but in actuality you are. Our backend is calculating all of the XP properly, and therefore you should get upgrade points and unlock classes and perks on schedule, regardless of what XP you see you are getting.

This being said, this issue will be fixed in a future update, so stay tuned.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding while we resolve this issue,
Your Ghost Recon Community Team
