Ghost Recon Breakpoint: How to Hold Your Breath Aiming Down Sights


Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta is out right now. You can play the game from your PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC from UPlay, and yes, you do not have the pre-order the game. It’s an open beta, so if you have any one of those consoles sitting around, download it right now to check it out over the weekend. You’re going to have access to the game to check out several new main missions, some side quests, and the game’s PvP mode. Some players are curious about how to hold their breath while aiming down sights.

How to Hold Breath in Ghost Recon Breakpoint

It’s going to vary based on what console you’re playing on, or if you’re playing it with a mouse and keyboard. For those playing a from a PC, all you need to do is click the “space,” button on your keyboard. You’re going to hold your breath when you hit it and hold it. If you’re playing the game from a console, you’re going to need hit and hold the “Left Trigger,” which is likely the option for both consoles.

When you hit the button and hold it for a few seconds while aiming down sights, you’re going to notice your weapon sway lower. This mechanic is going to make it much easier to hit targets when you’re aiming down sights. By holding the button long enough, you’re going to zoom in and heighten your chance of hitting the target even more.

However, you can’t do this forever. Your character is going to need to take a breath at some point. Make sure you don’t waste too much time attempting to establish your shot. You want to make sure you’re holding your breath when you’re aiming at your target, and need to zoom in to confirm the kill. After a few seconds, when you need to take a breath, you’re going to zoom back out, and your gun is going to lower down. Don’t take too long to establish the shot, or you’re going to lose it and have to wait even longer.

You can go into the game settings under “combat” to change these default choices at any time.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint officially releases on Oct. 4 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on the UPlay launcher.
