Ghost Recon Breakpoint gunsmith guide

Our guide to all the features in Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s gunsmith including how to upgrade weapons and edit your loadout

Ghost Recon Breakpoint gunsmith

Looking for how to use the Ghost Recon Breakpoint gunsmith? Once you start collecting weapons, you’ll notice that every gun has a score when you pick it up. Breakpoint now has gear scores, a number that you grow as you progress through the game by replacing weapons and gear with a higher score.

Some locations and campaign missions have a suggested gear score you should be aiming at before attempting to infiltrate. As well as a gear score, guns are rated for accuracy, handling, recoil, range, and mobility.

You can upgrade each weapon in Ghost Recon Breakpoint even further, by using the Ghost Recon Breakpoint gunsmith, by hovering over a weapon and holding the G key in the main menu. Here you’ll be able to use parts from dismantled guns for small weapon perks, equip attachments, and change the appearance of your gun. All changes you make to a weapon in the gunsmith will apply to all levels of that weapon going forward.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Gunsmith: weapon upgrades

You can upgrade your Ghost Recon Breakpoint weapons by dismantling old weapons you don’t use anymore to gain parts and materials. These parts can be used to upgrade your gun in the gunsmith. Depending on the gun, you’ll be able to upgrade handling, mobility, damage, reload speed, range, and accuracy.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Gunsmith: attachments

Once you’ve unlocked attachments, they can either be purchased from the shop in your base Erewhon, found in loot crates, dropped from enemies, or crafted from blueprints you’ve found in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

You’re able to equip and change the following attachments in the Ghost Recon Breakpoint gunsmith:

  • Magazine
  • Muzzle
  • Rail
  • Scope
  • Underbarrel

You can also change the appearance of any attachment and your overall gun in the gunsmith in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. By selecting paint, you can customise the look of your weapon. You’ll also see a Passive Bonus, this is applied to your weapon from unlocking Mark Upgrade perks in the skill tree.
