How to Get New Guns in Breakpoint

Let’s get a couple of things straight. To earn weapon in Breakpoint you can either receive them as random drops, find them in specific locations, or purchase them from the shop. To track them down in the wild, you’ll need the Blueprints, which we’ll cover next.

Tracking Down Weapon Blueprints

Breakpoint features a new Intel system, which helps players track down certain items and areas of interest. While playing, you’ll see small ‘i’ icons on your map. These can represent anything from a laptop to a collection of files. Interact with these points and you’ll be given a list of randomly generated items to choose from. Blue Intel represents weapons and attachments. Selecting Intel on an item will highlight the Blueprint on your map, meaning you can go and collect it. Often, these weapon blueprints are guarded, so take care and prepare accordingly.

What to do With Blueprints

Once you’ve tracked down a Blueprint, you’ll need to turn it in. To do so, head back to Erewhon and speak to Maria Schulz. She will take the Blueprint from you. From then on, you can purchase the weapon. The weapon’s level will be relative to your current Gear Score.

Weapon Rarities

Much like many looter shooters that release these days, Ghost Recon Breakpoint has weapons of varying rarities. They are broken up into the following categories:

  • White – Standard
  • Green – Improved (This means it has a perk associated with it)
  • Blue – Rare
  • Purple – Epic
  • Orange – Legendary

Upgrading Weapons Using the Gunsmith

Once you’ve earned a new weapon, you’ve only really started to scratch the surface in terms of its potential. You can actually upgrade a weapon using the Gunsmith menu. To get there, head to your loadout and hover the cursor over the weapon you’d like to upgrade. From here you’ll see the option for the Gunsmith. This is where you can Modify weapons, with upgrades and Paint Jobs. It’s worth noting that upgrading a weapon will mean that those upgrades will stick with it when you find a higher rarity version.

Equipping Attachments in Breakpoint

Finally, let’s take a look at how to equip attachments to your guns in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. To do so, head to the Gunsmith menu. This is selected by heading to the Loadout menu and hovering your cursor over a weapon. From here, you’ll see a list of possible attachments on the right hand side, which you can add to your guns.

Signature Weapons

The very best weapons in Ghost Recon Breakpoint are called Signature Weapons. Here are all of the ones we've found, alongside some info on how to get them.

  1. Sharp Thunder (Pistol) - Complete Brother vs Brother
  2. Silver Stake Tactical (Assault Rifle) - Complete Brother vs Brother
  3. Zastava M93 Sniper - head to Outpost Blue Tiger (west of Lake Bulkington, kill boss)

That’s all we have so far on the Guns in Breakpoint. If you’ve found a weapon you likem, be sure to let us know in the comments below. For more on the game, be sure to head over to our Ghost Recon Breakpoint Bivouacs and Preparations Guide.
