It can feel rather intimidating picking the perfect assault rifle when such a vast selection is offered up to you. You need to take into consideration the tactic you’ll be using to approach the objective. Will you be going in loud or stealthily? If you are hunted, will the selected rifle be able to withstand the heat? In this guide I’ll show you my top 3 Ghost Recon Wildlands assault rifles recommendations - the MK17, R5 RGP and ACR and how to get them without being power levelled.

High Damage - MK17 Assault Rifle
To NOT have the MK17 in your arsenal is almost criminal. The sheer firepower it brings to fights, together with high accuracy and range, allows it to become a semi- sniper rifle with assault rifle capabilities. Pop on a grenade launcher and you’re ready to even take down hard targets like helicopters and armored vehicles.
You won’t even need to kill anyone to get this gun but keep in mind that you’ll be surrounded by Unidad hostiles. Drive in with a Unidad car to their armoury, take what’s yours and drive out like a boss.
Stealth Killing - R5 RGP Assault Rifle
If you intend to go about missions stealthy as a ninja with of course, a gun, then the R5 RGP is your new BFF. Although its accuracy and damage cannot compare to the MK17, it makes up for it with its higher rate of fire and excellent noise reduction. This allows you to get up close and personal with your enemies.
This location may be run down and in shambles, but it’s strangely void of all hostiles. I would recommend droning up just to be sure, before you run in and go to the top floor to open the weapon case.
The All Rounder - ACR Assault Rifle
The all rounder is the ACR, with decent damage, accuracy, range and rate of fire, together with good stats for steady handling. This gun is prepared to fight off hordes of Unidad and Cartel members when you’re being hunted. It won’t be quiet but it will more than do the job of mowing these enemies down and the high rate of fire is very forgiving should you miss a shot.
You can fly a helicopter to this location, but be careful to watch for any SAM (Surface-to-air missiles) systems along the way. Remember to fly low! Do not enter from the front entrance as the weapon case is located near the back and is not heavily guarded.
You can take out the guard at the post and nearby snipers from afar before stealth swimming across the river and infiltrating the base. It will be located in the container to your left.
