Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bivouacs: Preparations, Crafting and Locations

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bivouacs: Preparations, Crafting and Locations

Bivouacs give you the space and time to prepare for your next mission. Here’s what you need to know.

While out exploring the vast island of Auroa in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, you’ll notice areas of interest called Bivouacs. You might not know what these areas are for at first, which is why we’ve put together this guide detailing them. We’ll cover applying Preparations at Bivouacs, how to craft items, and also how to find them in the first place. You can also spawn vehicles and shop for new gear here, so we’ll also show you how those systems work as well.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bivouacs Locations

There are a lot of Bivouacs to find in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, so it’s lucky that they are so easy to spot. All you need to do is look to the skies, as you’ll see grey smoke trails marking their locations. We recommend getting yourself a helicopter, and heading out in search of these smoke signals. You don't need to interact with them to mark them on your map, just fly near them to save them for later.

You Can Apply Preparations at Bivouacs

One of the key functions of a Bivouac is that you can apply one of six Preparations. These are special stat buffs that last for an hour each. They are as follows.

  • Eating - Injury Resistance +40%
  • Hydrate - Fatigue Resistance +80%
  • Tech Review - Drone Speed +40%
  • Stretching - Stamina +20%
  • Weapon Review - Accuracy +20
  • Resources - XP Bonus +10%

Which Preparation to Pick?

We recommend gearing your Preparations towards your next mission. If you’re going to be infiltrating a compound, Drone Speed or Weapon Accuracy will be useful. For a good all-rounder, we recommend the XP Boost or Stamina buff. These will both come in handy regardless of the activity you are taking on.

Crafting at Bivouacs

Another useful thing to do at Bivouacs is crafting. You can craft items for your next mission, using medicinal plants, explosive materials and metal parts to craft everything from syringes to bombs. You can also craft rations jere, which will apply temporary buffs to your character once consumed. These will need sugars and protein, which can be gained by hunting or collecting fruit.

Bivouacs Also Function as Shops

While resting at a Bivouac, you can access the shop. From here you can purchase new weapons, attachments or time saving items. This is a handy way to stock up before a mission.

You Can Spawn Vehicles

Finally, you have the option to spawn vehicles to Bivouacs. This means any cars, bikes or aircraft you have acquired over time. They will be spawned to a nearby road once you leave the camp.

That’s all we have on Bivouacs. For a look at how saving works, head here. For advice on holding your breath while aiming, head here.
