Everything you must know about how to hold your breath in Ghost Recon Breakpoint for more accurate shots.

The Early Access for Ghost Recon Breakpoint has finally launched, meaning players can now enjoy more of what made Wildlands so fantastic with three mates. If you’re one of the Gold, Ultimate or Collector’s Edition owners who have managed to bypass the Mountain 00800 error, then below you can find out how to hold your breath for more accurate shots.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the newest instalment in the Tom Clancy series, and its biggest attraction is its emphasis on survival coupled with its immersion. There’s a new injury system, its playground is diverse and it’s essentially just more of what fans could have wanted. That is except for its “hilarious amount of microtransactions.”

The enjoyment of these games always comes from causing as much mayhem and destruction as possible, and you’ll be able to pull off better and more accurate shots by holding your breath.

Hold your breath in Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Holding your breath has become a common feature in first-person video games. There’s plenty of shooters that allow you to hold your invisible man’s breath in order to get better shots, and then there are games like Alien Isolation which ask you to hold your breath so you don’t get mauled to death by a ferocious alien. Ghost Recon Breakpoint obviously falls into the former category.

Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint has an emphasis on realism with its survival, so it’s no surprise that there’s a hold your breath mechanic for better shots. After all, it’s much harder to hit someone in the delicates when your gun is bobbing up and down from you breathing heavily.

In order to hold your breath, you must press and hold the Left Trigger to aim, and then slightly release the Left Trigger to take advantage of the game’s Breath Control. This will result in your weapon swaying less so you have better odds at performing headshots.

You’ll know when your character is holding their breath as you will hear the thumping of their heart beating. However, just like real life, you won’t be able to hold your breath forever in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

The Sharpshooter Class boasts longer Breath Control and you can employ a perk to 100% increase the length of the ability, but it’ll still be a limited time skill which requires you to be quick and calm.

The Standard Edition for Ghost Recon Breakpoint will launch October 4th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
