How to Switch Aiming Shoulder in Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Breakpoint has a very frustrating over the shoulder camera angle. Here’s how to switch it.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint makes a number of improvements over its predecessor, adding in survival mechanics, a loot system and more. There are a few things that have become more confusing however, including how to switch your shoulder while aiming. To help you switch aiming shoulder in Breakpoint, we’ve detailed some easy to follow advice in this guide. We’ll show you which button switching shoulder is mapped to by default, and give you some tips on managing it while playing.

How to Switch Shoulder in Breakpoint

While playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint, you’ll notice that the shoulder you’re looking over will change quite frequently.

  1. To switch to the opposite shoulder, just press R1/RB.
  2. You may need to do this each time you exit cover.
  3. Remember that controls can be remapped in Breakpoint.

Shoulder Switching When Exiting Cover

Currently, there’s a rather annoying control system that applies when you enter and exit cover. More times than not, the shoulder you’re looking over will switch when exiting cover. This seems to be the default option for the game, so you will need to be pressing R1/RB to switch it to the other side.

Switching Shoulders On PC

If you’re a PC player struggling with the shoulder switch in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, look no further. All you need to do is click the middle mouse button. Remember also that controls are remappable.
