We’re getting a brand new title update for Ghost Recon Breakpoint on Oct. 15. The patch notes have gone out, and players can see what significant changes the team behind the game have come up with since the latest Ghost Recon launched. They’ve been listening to player feedback, and it’s going to share with their most recent push of content and fixes.
Title Update 1.02 for Ghost Recon Breakpoint
The developers are making a series of updates for the game’s cover system, making it easier for players to shoot from their positions. Previously, players were only able to peek outside of the cover to fire their weapons when they had a clear white marker showing where they could lean out. If they did not have this marker, they were unable to do so, and peeking out meant they were likely going to get hit from multiple angles of enemies.
The Co-op system in the game is getting some new touches, too. The player levels are going to get some adjustments, so hopefully, the difference in Gear Level does not harm everyone too much. This effect might make it easier for different Gear Levels of characters to team up and things not too feel too one-sided. We’re going to see how this update affects that level differences.
