Ghost Recon Breakpoint Operation Motherland Update Patch Notes

New Gameplay Elements

  • Experience player agency while you reclaim Auroa:
    • Play more than 60 short missions to dismantle the Bodark influence.
    • Complete the missions in any order to conquer the 11 regions of Auroa.
    • Notice the impact of your missions on Auroa, as the rebel presence will increase, weakening the Bodarks.
  • The Conquest mode marks the return of the Optical Camo, more advanced than ever:
    • The Optical Camo is now a permanent item of the item wheel.
    • It allows you to be invisible to the enemies up to a certain distance.
    • Its use is time-limited by a gauge that depletes according to your actions and movement.
    • In Conquest mode, you will uncover camo chests giving you points to improve your Optical Camo’s efficiency in many ways:
      • battery duration
      • depletion rate
      • reloading rate
      • efficiency against detection systems
    • Unlock special skills by reaching one of the Optical Camo’s three levels of progression: tested, effective, and combat ready. You will gain access to battery reload overnight, water resistance, and damage control.
    • The Optical Camo can also be used without its upgrades in the regular story mode of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
  • Enjoy more depth to the progression system:
    • The maximum XP level up was increased from 30 to 99.
    • A weapon mastery system was introduced, allowing you to use your extra skill points to improve the characteristics of specific weapon categories that fit your playstyle.
  • Weather and ambiance enhancements
    • Five new exclusive ambiances to experience along the Conquest mode missions.
    • Weather micro-changes: clearer and denser clouds, more radiosity, frequent rain in the marshes, modified distance and density of fog, and improved impact of the sun on the environment.
    • Environment effects revamp: insects, fumes, floating grasses, and flying birds.
    • Weather scenarios will not repeat from a day to another, especially after bivouac breaks.
  • The Conquest mode is also a multiplayer experience. However, it works differently from story mode. The co-op model is now host-centric, meaning the available activities will depend on the host progress; but all players will benefit from the progress made together.

Quality-of-Life Improvements

  • Base Jump:
    • Fall damage now applies normally if you jump and touch the ground without deploying the parachute, instead of instantly killing the main character.
    • Distance and height conditions to trigger base jump have been lowered to allow more base jump opportunities.
    • Jumping is now triggered by holding A (or X) when heading to a cliff instead of pressing A at the right time.
  • Sliding:
    • Sliding was tweaked to trigger less often.
    • In moderate slopes, sliding is only triggered if the player sprints.
    • It takes slightly longer for sliding to trigger when conditions are met.
  • CQC:
    • Slope-specific CQC animations have been tweaked to happen at more slope angles and should happen more frequently.
  • Laser:
    • Some lasers now feature an IR Illuminator, activated when aiming, that will be visible only when wearing NVGs.
    • The IR Illuminator doesn’t impact NPC detection.
  • Weapon Sounds Rework:
    • M4A1, G28, and TAC50 unsilenced and silenced firing sounds have been modified.
