Ghost Recon Wildlands – How to Get the MK17

Learn how to obtain this high-powered assault rifle.

ghost recon wildlands mk17

The MK17 is one of the strongest assault rifles in Ghost Recon Wildlands, and players will want to obtain it early on as it boasts some very good stats. Unfortunately, the province that you find this weapon in is one of the more difficult, but we’ve put together an article that will help you make your way to the weapon’s location quite quickly and easily. In this article we’ll teach you everything you need to know to obtain the Ghost Recon Wildlands MK17 Assault Rifle as early as possible.

How to get the MK17

In order to unlock the MK17 early, you’re going to need to acquire a Parachute, which we’ve already discussed in another guide. Once you have the parachute, grab yourself a chopper, and make your way down to Flor De Oro.

The location that you’re looking for is M.O.B. Jaguar, one of the main bases of the UNIDAD patrols that you’ve probably run into quite a few times during your time in Ghost Recon Wildlands. This base is very fortified, and has plenty of troops scattered around it to mount a small war on your squad, so be discreet as you make your approach.

Come in from up high, using the chopper to get high above the area. Make sure to mark the location of the Armory on the map, as this is where you’ll want to land and grab the weapon from.

Once you’re over the marker on your map, bail out of the helicopter and let it fall to its doom. This is why you need the parachute.

Aim for the marker that you placed on the Armory, and get as close as possible before pulling your chute, so as to attract the least amount of attention.

Sneak around the back, to lose line of sight with some of the nearby guards, and silently take out any guards you feel might be too much of a threat. Just beware that any and all attacks could lead to all-out war with the UNIDAD.

With the way clear, head inside the Armory and loot the Weapon Case to the right of the doorway. You now how one of the most powerful Assault rifles in the game. Looking for more guns?

Mk 17 location and details – Quick Tip for Ghost Recon: Wildlands

16 May, 2017 | Video

This gun is described in the game as:

A modular and reliable combat rifle

You’ll find this in central Flor De Oro province, inside M.O.B. Jaguar, the main, huge Unidad base in the region. The mission “The Black Site” is nearby. The weapons case is inside the armoury in the northern part of the base, near the entrance.

I approached from the south and had to cross into the northern part of the base via a bridge over the rail tracks. I suspect there’s a much simpler approach from the north if you can find a way in via the roads. Fortunately, because this base is immense, soldiers are thin and far between, so take out the snipers and alarms and you should be fine.

You may know this gun as the SCAR-H from other games, chambered for 7.62mm rounds, and it accepts pretty much all assault rifle accessories you can find in the game.

It shoots slow and hits hard, dealing good damage, and if I wasn’t so enamoured by the ACR I might be using this gun instead.

It has the usual 20 round standard magazine and 30 round extended mag (also found in Flor de Oro) but while there’s no large 50 round magazine available, it does have the lowest rate of fire of all the assault rifles, so you probably won’t need it.

Ghost Recon Wildlands - Locate, Capture and Extract El Muro

A guide to help you locate, capture and extract El Muro in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

  • Cutting Edge

Ghost Recon Wildlands - How to Get the MK17 Assault Rifle

Learn the MK17 location and follow our steps on how to get the MK17 Assault Rifle in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

This guide will help players complete the El Muro mission in Ghost Recon Wildlands, which requires you to locate, capture and extract El Muro. While the mission itself isn’t too difficult for careful players, there are quite a few areas that you can fail without realizing you’re in danger. We’ll help you get through that.

You'll have to defeat a few buchons to unlock the El Muro mission

To unlock this mission, you’ll first need to dismantle El Sueño’s security forces. This involves defeating several key members of the Santa Blanca Cartel, including La Yuri Y El Polito, Carl Bookhart, General Baro, and El Pozolero. Once you’ve done so you should have access to the El Muro mission, which will take place in the Media Luna province near the northern border of the map.

Locate El Muro

This is the location of El Muro in Ghost Recon Wildlands

You’ll find El Muro at a base in the northeast part of the Media Luna province. There is safe house to the east, and we’d suggest starting there and walking west to reach the hills outside the base. When you’re about 300 meters from the base, go prone and use your Binoculars to scope out the situation. An upgraded Rebel Spotting perk is clutch here, as it will reveal the locations of large groups of Santa Blanca Cartel and Unidad that stand in your path.

Santa Blanca and Unidad should be fighting at this point, and we’d suggest you just let them work that out for a few minutes. You’ll end up being hunted for reasons that make zero sense (assuming you didn’t get spotted), and sometimes this results in Unidad coming after you. If the Santa Blanca Cartel and Unidad have thinned each other’s numbers enough, you can go in and get El Muro, who is in the air traffic control tower at the base. You could also use your MSR Sniper Rifle and T5Xi Tactical to take out some Unidad and help Santa Blanca do more damage for you.

Capture El Muro

El Muro is in the air traffic control tower, but won't show up until you get close

As soon as you get close to the air traffic control tower, El Muro is going to bolt, heading for a vehicle that’s parked just outside. You can catch him on foot (put your guns away to get your run on), but it’s a lot easier to just drive straight into the base and up to the vehicle he gets into. If he gets into his vehicle, jump in the passenger seat. El Muro’s mind will explode, unsure of how to handle your nonsense, and he’ll bolt for another land-based vehicle. Catch him and capture El Muro to complete this objective.

Extract El Muro to San Mateo Alpha

You'll be extracting El Muro at San Mateo Alpha, and we suggest driving, not flying

We failed this part at least five times. Once we died with El Muro in custody. Once we were shot down by anti-air and he died. Once we were shot down and he survived, but fell off a mountain and died. Once he took some fire from pursuing Unidad. You get the idea.

The winning run was when we stowed El Muro in the vehicle he was trying to escape in, and then had our squad mate get on the vehicle’s turret. This allowed us to avoid all anti-air (because we were driving), and every time we got close to Santa Blanca or Unidad, our pal was shredding them on the gun. It was a piece of cake to get back to San Mateo Alpha and extract El Muro. Not a short trip, but not a tough one, either.

Now that you’ve succeeded in your quest to locate, capture and extract El Muro, you should probably wind down, which is why you’ll want to hunt down All 8 Totems in Ghost Recon Wildlands to unlock a nifty little Easter egg.

The 10 Best Assault Rifles In Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Ranked

If you want to be the best of the best in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, you need the best weapons. Here are ten of those weapons.

For players making their way through the battlefields of the wild in Ghost Recon: Wildlands , a trusted weapon should be the first thing you're trying to obtain. If you hold a weapon that you're not comfortable with it becomes little more than a walking giveaway for the enemy. With plenty of weapons to choose from, players will get to customize their playstyle around the weapon of choice.

Assault Rifles belong to the middle ground with some wiggle room in between. Sporting the widest variety of attachments, Assault rifles become the most adaptable weapon in the game. Being the in-between is always beneficial as you can fall into surrounding roles with little adjustment. For that, players require only the best the game has to offer.

The AUG assault rifle lends it's all-around high stats to any situation players may find themselves in. Good damage will mount up and with the consistent aim you receive throughout a burst, it won't be hard to nail down an enemy once the scope is on the target.

Used mostly as a mid-range weapon, it has range capabilities that can give you reliable performance at the back of the squad. Luckily, the search for this versatile weapon doesn't take you down a rabbit hole. In fact, you can get it with relative ease, in the Barvechos province you'll find it hidden in a weapons case along the border.

As far as magazines go, the 556xi supports an impressive range all leading up to the 50 round drum that can be purchased in La Cruz. Good luck to any enemy that has to wait out the relentless onslaught that can be delivered at a steady pace.

RELATED: Ranked: The 10 Best Guns In Red Dead Redemption 2

Combined with the great damage at range and you can spray bullets so far away the enemy has a hard time returning fire. Los Hombres Jaguares is where you'll find it, right in the middle of a human hunting camp. It's not always easy pickings when it comes to high powered weapons.

8 ACR Assault Rifle

The hint is in the name, adaptable. Sometimes the best thing about a gun is it's lack of negatives, meaning you can trust it at every point combat. Even the picky player will struggle to find a flaw in the weapon, as it can attach almost every accessory available and can be tampered with to no end.

Once the player has it, it's common to stick with the gun until the end. Although getting your hands on it is the hard part, as it's protected by an enemy outpost that the weapon happens to be right beside. That means you'll have to take out the whole squad before claiming the prize.

Acting as a 2 for 1 drop, the location of the MK17 is an armory with another highly coveted weapon. If that isn't enough to entice you, the MK17 deals a massive amount of damage per hit. That balances the scales considering its fire rate is quite low.

RELATED: The 5 Best New Exotic Guns In Destiny 2: Shadowkeep (And The 5 Worst)

Now considering the combo deal you get if you plan on entering the armory, it comes as no shock that players can't just stroll on by. A well-guarded area that comes with its fair few risks, it might be a wise move to scout the defense before you jump into battle.

For the renegades among us who like to be dead center in the middle of the action, The Tar 21 provides a rate of fire that put most other guns to shame. reactions are key to getting the most out of its capabilities as you will hit first and fast.

The stability also plays a big part in its accuracy at close range. The recoil of the rapid-fire shots barely moves the crossfire, leaving you to hold down the trigger. At long range, things tend to get a little blurry so if you like hanging out in the background, it's not for you.

Though the G2 isn't an underpowered weapon by any means, the speed at which it fires bullets it wouldn't matter anyway. As long as you have a steady hand and keep the end of your gun pointed at the target, it's pretty hard to not put the enemy down.

Close range is where players will likely have the most success, before the enemy has a chance to react, the trigger has been pulled. This also gives players a high level of confidence jumping into a firefight situation, preventing the usual jumpy gameplay when entering tight spaces.

One of the weaker damage dealers of the bunch, the P416 is mainly a stealth weapon that can be used even in the most delicate situations. Its high noise suppression makes it barely detectable, especially amongst environmental noise or other gunfire.

Night missions are where you'll really notice the difference. Unsuspecting enemies will aid the underpowered rifle by giving up vulnerable positions and handing players a great shot. Make sure to pick the shot carefully, even the quietest gun will be detected on a miss.

The real test of a gun is how consistent it can pull off its job in great fashion. While the G36c doesn't look like a superstar on paper, you'll find it catches out a lot of impressive weapons with its ability to outperform in the weak spots.

RELATED: Monster Hunter World: The Best Weapons, Ranked

This is only accentuated by the range of attachments that can take the gun to the next level. Burst shots are always going to be an advantage, especially when you're dealing with an especially tricky enemy that only gives you a small opening to get the job done.

Rate of fire is an overlooked aspect when players consider a weapon, it's all about damage output and accuracy. Both those things are obviously critical, but if you aren't a hawkeye and occasionally have to reply on a few shots to take an enemy down then the rate of fire moves into the top spots.

Even being a team player has a major impact because if you have to suppress fire from a group, a speedy reload is a near requirement. Not that the SR3M slacks in other aspects because it has a good all-around stat list but as far as speed goes, this gun reigns supreme.

The ultimate symbol of stealth has been a sniper for many years, though the soldiers who get in at close range often need silence as well. The R5 RGP offers you the highest damage rate when you throw a suppressor on it. This means you're not only dealing big damage but getting caught also becomes less likely.

When you're tucked into a tight urban situation, giving away position by firing can cause a slow road ahead as you constantly maneuver the enemy. The stealth protection is great, but the fewer shots the better and with high damage, it won't take many.

“ High range, high damage, punishing spread. - In-game description ”

The MK17 is a high-damage assault rifle, rivaling the other 7.62mm rifles in terms of damage per shot. Its rate of fire is low and the recoil intense, making single shots or bursts almost mandatory for long-range use. Its blueprint can be found in Windy Islands and it is a common weapon in the hands of Sentinel riflemen.

MK17 Assault Variant [ ]

“ Assault variant: tougher recoil, higher power. - In-game description ”

The MK17 Assault blueprint can be purchased from Maria's shop. It adds even more damage over the base MK17 at the cost of added recoil and lack of a semi-automatic mode, making it a better choice for Ghosts who need a hard-hitting close-range battle rifle.

MK17 Assault | Wolves Variant [ ]

“ Part of the Wolves series. Assault variant: tougher recoil, higher power. - In-game description ”

The MK17 Assault | Wolves can be purchased from the Store with Ghost Coins. It essentially is the Assault variant with the Wolves ' paint scheme.

MK17 Shorty Variant [ ]

The MK17 Shorty blueprint can be found on Golem Island. It reduces recoil at the cost of range, making the MK17 a more controllable and easy-to-use rifle. However, players with more experience managing the recoil may find more utility out of the higher power that other variants provide.

MK17 Scout Variant [ ]

The MK17 Scout is a rare drop from Tactical Caches. It restricts the MK17 to semi-automatic only in exchange for higher-magnification optics and a significant range and accuracy boost. Like other Scout conversions of assault rifles, the MK17 Scout is a far superior weapon for picking off enemy snipers or HVTs but falls behind its automatic counterparts in serial engagements.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Best Weapons and Attachments Guide

Learn about the best weapons and what attachments to use along with them in this guide to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

ghost recon wildlands mk17

Vanilla versions of weapons are good for starting out in Ghost Recon: Wildlands , but as you’re getting deeper into the Santa Blanca cartel, you will need something more. This is where all the attachments come in handy. But how do you know which of them fits your weapon the best when there are so many of them?

This guide will help you find and create the best weapon-attachments combinations for your missions. Each attachment has its own purpose and knowing how all of them work will give you a massive advantage.

Best Assault Rifles in  Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

Undoubtedly, the fastest assault rifle in Wildlands is a French G2, also known as FAMAS. You can find it in the Inca Camina region. It has a bullpup configuration, which creates strong blowbacks during the shooting.

You need the following attachments:

  • Foregrip is necessary to stabilize the powerful G2.
  • You can find several versions of foregrip in Itacua, Monte Puncu, Pucara, and La Cruz.
  • 1x-3x scope provides better accuracy on a short distance.
  • You will find it in Monte Puncu.
  • 50 round magazines are a must with this type of weapon.
  • Find these extended magazines at Caimanes and Libertad.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

In terms of accuracy and range there is no better rifle than MK 17, also known as the SCAR. It is a gas-operated, short-stroke, self-loading rifle with a rotating bolt – a truly unique type of weapon. It is located at Flor de Oro.

Make it even better with these accessories:

  • Russian Red Dot will make the MK 17 super precise — headshots guaranteed.
  • This type of optics can be found at Villa Verde.
  • Shift Short Angled Grip is needed, since it’s not very stable on its own, but now it will be.
  • The grip can be located at Barvechos.

Best Sniper Rifles in  Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

The MK 14 battle sniper rifle is a masterpiece of weapon design, which was specifically created for the US special operations units. It is also one of the most versatile sniper rifles in the game with lots of possible attachments.

You’ll need these two attachments the most:

  • Digital Scope can be used at short to mid distances with great accuracy.
  • There is only one at Monte Puncu.
  • T5Xi tactical scope has the highest magnification in the game — 6.0x.
  • It’s perfect at extreme distances — go get one at Koani.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

If you don’t care about the fancy features of MK 14, such as selective fire or a higher fire rate, and all you want is to take out targets at any distance then consider grabbing HTI in the province of Montuyoc.

This bullpup bolt-action, anti-materiel sniper rifle will tear apart anything you want from the furthest possible distance. It may be noisy, but the damage it provides is matchless.

Best Submachine and Light Machine Guns in Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

SR 635 is so powerful that it really shouldn’t be in the SMG category, but due to its compact size it cannot be called an assault rifle either. Anyway, this little buddy is unusually powerful and great in handling – you can find it in Ocoro.

It could get better if it were equipped with:

  • Laser 3Dot can be well-used for better accuracy in close combat.
  • The one for SMGs can be located in Tabacal.
  • Compensator is by far the best alternative to a suppressor and makes the SMG more stable.
  • There is one in Barvechos.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

6P41 is a Russian general-purpose light machine gun, also known as Pecheneg. This thing is made of titanium parts and can withstand high temperatures, so if you like assault playstyle (aka Rambo mode), then this is the weapon for you. This bad boy is located in Media Luna.

Here’s what it needs:

  • Vertical Grip is a must if you plan on using the LMG in the field.
  • You can find such grip in Itacua.

Best Gun and Shotgun in  Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

There is only one worthy handgun in Ghost Recon: Wildlands , and that is D-50, also known as Desert Eagle. This semi-automatic self-loading pistol can be located at the province of Libertad.

There isn’t much to customize on a handgun except maybe the larger magazine that can be snatched in Koani.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Best Weapons

SASG-12 is a 12-gauge shotgun inspired by the famous Kalashnikov assault rifles. It comes in many configurations, there are two of them in Wildlands — one is in P.N. Agua de Verde and the other in La Cruz.

Top 10 Best Assault Rifles In Ghost Recon: Wildlands – Ranked From Worst to Best

Spezzy

The gaming world has grown since live streaming and online multiplayer modes have become accessible. Thousands of players use their online accounts or gaming consoles to play action games. 

While there are various big names in the gaming industry, one name amongst the top action games is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon. A series of military-based tactical shooter video games by Ubisoft, it has 15 different games.

In this series, players get to perform the role of a US Army soldier, Special Forces Group, also known as the Ghosts, taking up different classified missions. The games are available on different platforms, including Xbox, PlayStation, Mac OS, and Windows.

First launched in 2001, the games were typically in a closed environment, within four walls. However, Ubisoft Paris and Ubisoft Milan developed Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands in 2017 as the first open-environment game, which has gained considerable popularity.

What Makes Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Stand Out

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a critically acclaimed third-person tactical shooter video game released in 2017 and the first one of the series to feature an open environment, including mountains, salt flats, forests, and deserts, with a day-night cycle.

Available for PlayStation 4 , Microsoft Windows , and Xbox One , this tenth game of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon takes place in a Bolivian setting. Players can make a team with up to 4 players to fight Santa Blanca, a drug cartel that has spread ill fate in Bolivia.

Throughout the story, players are tasked with taking down the cartel, either solo or as a team, through their fully customizable Ghost soldier, including the gear. Moreover, you can explore the open-world game and its landscapes both on and off-road, at sea, or even in the air, with the availability of over 60 different vehicles, including dirt bikes, dune buggies, and helicopters. 

You can also toggle to a first-person view for gun aiming and operate drones to locate your enemies. Players can use stealth, melee combat, loot enemy corpses, and build the story since the game’s AI is unscripted.

In addition, the game allows the use of both hands of the character, enabling the use of different weapons and gear, all of which can be customized and upgraded. While in the game, players can do various tasks to earn points and upgrade their character to the next level.

Apart from these, a significant reason for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, apart from its open environment, is the availability of several weapons. You can choose from assault rifles, machine guns, sniper rifles, shotguns, and light machine guns, all inspired by the ones used in the US military. 

Assault Rifles – The Best Weapons In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

With a game as exhilarating and action-packed as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, having the proper arsenal by your side is crucial to completing the missions and succeeding. While the game has an exhaustive list of submachine guns, light machine guns, shotguns, and sniper rifles, assault rifles are the number one player choice.

Assault rifles allow versatility to the players due to their balance, light weight, and accuracy. Moreover, several attachments are available for assault rifles to upgrade, helping improve their range.

Such assault rifles have deep penetration ammo, which, combined with their high fire rate, make them the perfect weapon for close and medium-range combat. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands has more than 20 assault rifles.

The following ten assault rifles are player favorites, owing to their features and accessibility. Going from the worst to the best, they are:

  • ACR Assault Rifle

Below are the reasons why these assault rifles have been ranked high and where to find them in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands:

1. The AK-47 

One of the most famous names in the real world, the AK-47 is also a player favorite in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recons: Wildland. Found in the Media Luna region of the game, this assault rifle has a formidable firepower.

You can also get its upgraded versions:

  • AK-47 Uprising unlocked through GW Wildlands store
  • His AK-47 or Her AK-47 opened after defeating Yuri and Polito

With the highest rate of fire and handling combo, the SR3M assault rifle is all about rapid firing, becoming helpful in cases where aiming isn’t your best bet. This is useful when you need speed to defeat the enemy, especially as a team player.

This assault rifle can be found in P.N. De Agua Verde.

While it has a meager damage per hit, the P416 ranks amongst the top 10 since it is one of the best stealth weapons you can acquire in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recons: Wildland. With a high noise suppression, the rifle’s attack is barely noticeable.

Therefore, this assault rifle is your best aid in night missions, where enemies cannot suspect your attack. By default, this rifle is given to your character as the starting weapon, erasing the hunt to find it.

4. Stealth Killer R5 RGP

Another top weapon in the game, the R5 RGP, has a high damage rate. You can also add a suppressor and convert it into a stealth weapon. This assault rifle can be found in Monte Puncu.

While not as accurate as an MK17, it has a high rate of fire, making up for its damage-causing capabilities. 

The 556xi assault rifle ranks high in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recons: Widland because it supports an impressive range of magazines. With maximum accuracy, handling, and bullet penetration, this rifle can be found in Los Hombres Jaguares in a human hunting camp.

You can attach up to a 50-round drum to the rifle, where the former can be purchased in La Cruz. The 556xi is best used for long-range attacks.

6. G2 Famas

Undoubtedly, the fastest assault rifle in Ghost Recons: Wildland, the French G2, or FAMAS, has a bullpup configuration that helps produce strong blowbacks while shooting. This can be found in the Inca Camina Region.

To make the G2 more powerful, the following attachments can be procured:

  • Foregrip that helps stabilize the assault rifle. It can be found in various places, such as Monet Puncu, Pucara, Itacua, and La Cruz.
  • To improve the short-distance accuracy of FAMAS, you can search for 1x-3x scope in the Monte Puncu region.
  • 50-round magazines improve its efficiency and can be located in Caimanes and Libertad.

The G2 Famas is best used in close-range and gives players confidence to fight in a tight space. It also ranks high in penetration.

7. High Damage MK17

Also known as the SCAR, MK17 has the best range and accuracy among all the assault rifles. A gas-operated, self-loading rifle, it has a rotating bolt and short-stroke. This gun can be found in Flor de Oro. However, it is located in a well-guarded armory, therefore claiming it comes with risks.

To help upgrade the MK17 rifle in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, you can accessorize it with:

  • Russian red dot that improves its accuracy and precision for headshots. This can be found at Villa Verde.
  • A shift short angled grip to make it stable can be seen in Barvechos.

While the rifle’s fire rate is relatively low, it makes up for it with a high damage per hit. This can also be converted into a semi-sniper gun due to its high firepower, enabling you to damage armored vehicles and helicopters.

8. The All-Rounder ACR Assault Rifle

An easily adaptable rifle, the ACR can be your best weapon in various situations and fields, so players tend to carry it throughout the game. However, due to its versatility, it can be challenging to find.

You can come across the ACR Assault Rifle in an enemy outpost, meaning you must take down a whole squad before laying your hands on it. You can search for the ACR in La Loma, Media Luna.

This assault rifle rates high in accuracy, handling, and rate of fire. While it has lesser damage, you can quickly kill a target within seconds with its burst of bullets. 

9. The TAR-21

The TAR-21 has an exceptional rate of fire and high accuracy in short-range, enabling you to be at the dead center of all the action. Moreover, the recoil is light, allowing you to hold down the trigger.

You can search for this assault rifle in the Montuyoc, Choza Padre, on the upper floors of a house. This powerful assault rifle can even take down vehicles with its high penetration power.

The all-around high stats aided by the AUG A3 assault rifle are probably the primary reason for its number one rank. This is because once the enemy is in the AUG’s stable aim, it is easy to kill the target with burst bullets.

Best used as a mid-range weapon, the AUG is also easy to find. It is located in the Barvechos province within a weapons case along the border. You can find it with 30-round magazines with 20 rounds loaded into it.

The action-packed scenario of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands and its open-environment settings demands players to choose and yield the best assault rifles to make it in the game.

Each of the 20+ rifles has strengths and weaknesses, upgrades, and accessories catering to different playing styles, missions, and tasks. Therefore, a collection of the top rifles is a must to advance into the game.

From the famous AK-47 to the exceptional AUG, the game has an impressive range of assault rifles for each type of player. Whether you prefer close combat, distance shooting, or mid-range entertainment, you can find a suitable assault rifle in Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Therefore, if you know well about these weapons and where to use them, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands can give you the best video-game tactical shooter experience.
