There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as reaching your target via parachute in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, so stealth players must know how to Base Jump to take advantage of that option. Yeah, you can jump out of a helicopter or plane, but sometimes the opportunity to dive off a cliff is right in front of you and too good to pass up. In this guide, we’ll explain how to Base Jump in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which isn’t as obvious as some might think.
How to Base Jump in Ghost Recon Breakpoint
In order to Base Jump in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, players must first unlock the Parachute ability using an earned Skill Point. This can be done from the menu that allows players to swap gear, buy gear, and even look at the map. Just look for the icon of the Skill Point at the top of the menu, then open that tab. Since this ability is rather basic, it will require only one Skill Point to unlock the Parachute skill.
Once the Parachute ability is unlocked, players will need to find somewhere to Base Jump from, so make sure to find a cliff or ledge with a straight drop. Next, run towards the ledge and, as you get close, press and hold the Parachute button to trigger the Base Jump. On PC this is the Spacebar, on PS4 this is X, and on Xbox One this is A. As soon as you’re falling, press the Parachute button a second time to deploy it and begin floating gracefully to the ground.
If you’re using the Base Jump option to get into an enemy-controlled area undetected, make sure to take a few stealth weapons with you. Consider getting the MP5 blueprint for something up close and personal, and maybe grab the HTI blueprint for some sniper action if you plan to land on a rooftop or tower and get started from there. If you really need to keep the noise down, grab the M1911 blueprint, just don’t forget to put a suppressor on that sidearm.
