Ghost Recon Wildlands Stealth Playstyle
The stealth playstyle in Wildlands is someone who likes to be sneaky and likely complete missions at night. When enemies are sleeping (which you will find they do at night), you can sneak into their rooms and grab them out of bed or just bloody their pillow. Again, the choice is yours on how you want to end these guys.
If you are going to play stealth, then here are a few things you will want to keep in mind.
Use your drone and binoculars to mark out targets.
Keep control of your AI partners if playing solo
Avoid detection at all costs – Take your time to line up shots
Try to do major missions in the dark
Crawl and Prone to be sneaky

Weapons of Choice:
You can use a Submachine Gun equipped with a suppressor (silencer) as your primary weapon. There are also some very quiet assault rifles, but keep these handy for those moments when you need more power rather than stealth.
The key to your weapon choice in stealth is to balance noise reduction and damage. You will be taking your time to line up your shots, so focus on those two weapons stats first.
Keep a powerful but quiet handgun at the ready as well. If you find yourself in a bind and need to grab a human shield (you do this by holding grab next to someone), you can still use your handgun. If you were unaware of this, you can grab someone and drag them around all over the place and they will ultimately end up getting shot and killed before you do.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Gameplay Tips – Stealth Playstyle Skills:
Sync Shot should be one of the first skills that you obtain. If you are already playing, start working on it next.
Stable Aim: This will help you land those headshots and squeeze bullets into those hard to reach places
Advanced Suppressor will remove the damage reduction penalty from having a suppressor equipped.
Battery, Night Vision, Range, and Stealth should be priorities. Another good drone skill to get is the EMP. You can shut off alarms, generators, and even shut down vehicles with this drone type.
C4 explosive will come in handy when you need to blow things up from a distance.
Detection in the Physical skill tree will help you when sneaking. The detection skill makes it harder for enemies to notice you when you are moving while in crouch or prone positions.
Unlock Parachute if you plan on flying at all.
Priority Skills List:
- Sync Shot
- Stable Aim
- Advanced Suppressor
- C4 Explosives
- Drone Skills –
- Night Vision
Stealth Playstyle Summary
Becoming a stealth player means that you will be using your drone a lot. Practice controlling it and start placing skills in the drone tree as soon as you can. Once you have mastered using your drone, you can start syncing targets and knocking 4 enemies down at the same time.
Stealth requires some patience. You will be moving slowly and quietly. You have a higher chance of surviving missions because you will typically go undetected. Just remember to have a backup plan if you are going stealth. If something goes wrong and you find yourself surrounded by enemies, keep a more powerful weapon handy to get out alive. Remember, you can go to your weapon loadout and change to any weapon at any time.
