Ghost Recon Breakpoint: How to Equip Binoculars

Marking enemies from a distance is essential for sneaking around in Breakpoint. Here’s how to equip the Binoculars.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint places a lot more emphasis on stealth when compared to its predecessor. You’ll need to lay low right up until you’re ready to execute your plans, so having an awareness of enemy placement is vital. Binoculars can be really useful here, allowing you to mark enemies so that you can keep track of them. Equipping them is a little obtuse however, which is why we’ve detailed how to equip them in this guide.

How to Equip Your Binoculars in Breakpoint

The UI in Ghost Recon Breakpoint can be a little cumbersome, especially when equipping items. You’ll have a selection of items equipped to your item wheel, accessed by holding R1/RB. To add the Binoculars to this, head into the loadout menu, and hover your cursor over the item you’d like to swap out. Select it, and the Binoculars will appear as a replacement. Now all you need to do is select the Binoculars and they will be available to use.

Using the Binoculars to Mark Enemies

The main purpose of the Binoculars is to mark enemies. To do so, Hold R1/RB and select the Binoculars. Then, press L1 to equip them and use aim to look through them. Hovering over enemies, drones and Bivouacs will mark them on your minimap, aiding in sneaking.

When Should You Use Them?

We recommend using the Binoculars as much as possible in Breakpoint. Specifically, head to a vantage point before infiltrating an area. You can then mark enemies before you head in. It’s also useful to mark any drones that are nearby, in case they start heading towards you.

That’s all we have so far on equipping binoculars in Breakpoint. For a look at how Preparations work, head here. For info on saving, there’s our Ghost Recon Breakpoint Saving Guide.
