It's a familiar feeling among open world video game players—after running across town from one mission to another, you get a little burned out and start to let loose. Sometimes this means trying to cram as many people as possible into a commercial plane, or other times it can mean getting crazy with mods. In Ghost Recon: Wildlands, letting loose most likely means screwing with Unidad, the local military force.
This Is What A Maxed Out Alert Level Looks Like In 'Ghost Recon: Wildlands'
While the Santa Blanca cartel is always going to be on your ass while you drive around the #Wildlands map, if you know when to keep your head down you won't really have to deal with Unidad—unless you want to.
If you decide you want to take a dip into some hot water, you can really get things going by tipping off Unidad and letting the bullets fly. One too many explosions during a cartel shootout or a dead patrolling officer will get your started on the way to increasing your alert level. If you can stay alive as you take more Unidad officers down, that level will go up and, eventually, the helicopters will roll in.
Take a look at how messy things can get in the video below:
If you've played any other crime-based open world #VideoGames, you may be familiar with this sort of escalated attention mechanic. You may also be at least somewhat familiar with how to get out of these situations—dying. But it turns out that this isn't the only option in Wildlands!
How To Fix The Mess You've Made
It is possible to get out of trouble and back in Unidad's good graces without having to die. Of course, by "good graces" I mean "out of their line of sight."
Here are some of the best ways to shake the Unidad forces:
- Run and hide
If you've managed to piss Unidad off early in the game, this is basically your only option. Without the opportunity to dig your heels into the mud and level up, you won't stand a chance.
- Take down the helicopters
If you're good with the sniper rifle, this is also a great option. Taking out the helicopters keeps them from being able to track you down from the air. Once you get rid of them, if there are no Unidad folks on the ground, you'll be as good as lost to them. This is also apparently doable in one shot.
- Snipe them from a distance
This takes a bit of finesse but it's the cleanest option by far. Even at the highest alert levels this method is possible. The hardest thing about the sniper route is that you really can't afford to miss too many times. If you give away your location, you're as good as dead. Either way, it'll be over quickly!
