Ghost Recon: Breakpoint got an update last year that added AI teammates into the game. Finally, players can pick the game up and play with others without the need to actually team up with three other real-life players. Instead, the AI teammates will work without any input from anyone, though they will listen to your orders. In this guide, we’re going to cover how to get teammates in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, and what to do with them.
How to Get Teammates in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
The first thing you should do when you load up the game is make sure you have the latest version downloaded. Since the game requires an online connection, you’ll almost certainly have to download any updates before you can actually start it up.
Providing you’ve got the latest version of the game, you should then load your latest save. The game might well play a video that shows off the new teammates, though depending on when you’re reading this, it could be old news.
Once you’re into the game, it’s time to actually turn on those teammates. You need to open the game’s settings and navigate through the menus until you find an option to turn them on. That’s all you have to do, and they’ll then appear once you leave Erewhon.
Please note that you’ll need to have unlocked Erewhon before you can access teammates.
How Teammates Work
There’s very little that you actually need to do with your teammates once they’re activated. They’ll follow you around wherever you go. If you start to sneak, they’ll do the same, if you jump into a vehicle, they’ll follow in the available seats.
You can give your teammates a few commands though. They are as follows.
- Cleared Hot – This gives your teammates clearance to shoot any enemies they see.
- Go To – This order directs your teammates to head to a specific location. They’ll stop once there and look for cover.
- Regroup – With this order, your teammates will return to your side and go about their usual business.
- Hold – When you give this order, your teammates will look for the nearest cover and stop moving.
One of the greatest advantages of having AI teammates is that you can do everything in a lot more style. You can scout an enemy base with your drone and order kills without ever moving. This makes you feel like a true commander, watching the battlefield from above and keeping an eye out for emerging threats.
With teammates, you can also get into some truly epic fights. Since you’ll all bundle into vehicles together, you can rip groups of enemies apart regardless of where you are. Some of the best fights I’ve had have been helicopter battles, where the enemy is firing rockets but my team is just too good for them to take us down.
That’s everything you need to know about how to get teammates in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. The game is infinitely better with them enabled, so make sure you turn them on next time you play.
