Some of you are aware there is a cheat table for the cheat engine app (the non malicious program) used by pc gamers to cheat in single player games. One of the cheats is "disable drone swarm", allowing pc players to explore the raid island solo, you can't do the raid mission or fight the main big bosses but all the other enemies are there, soldiers, wolves, drones and vehicles.

This is my very first gameplay video series...25+ years of gaming and only just done my first video(s). i've split it into parts 1-23 (almost done exploring the island)

The AI on the island is brutal compared to that of the main island(s), partols are larger and can include up to 4 larger drones (air and ground), patrol vehicles are fully manned. Helicopters are replaced with gunships. There's larva and many turrets which are either harder to destroy or invincible (usually blow up quickly on main island(s) on golem they survive rocket hits..you can disable them as usual though as well as turn off the power on the blue electic stations.

No bs, no intro, no commentary, no ads etc. just raw gameplay.

no deaths, cut out all the dying and respawning..edited so each video follows on from the previous.

current playtime: 4:35:35s

The best game-play available in Breakpoint. Forced to be experienced with 4 players. Designed to be a the toughest challenge available for the squad, even when running full lights and sirens HUD. . . Yet. . . Easily clearable solo with no/limited HUD.

@UbiParis: I can't stress this enough... Apologize to everyone you lied to and suckered into buying this title. Give us our money back. And then stop making Ghost Recon games.


I'm glad you were finally get some time on the island Slarlac.

Took all day yesterday to capture the gameplay.....died loads, cursed at screen loads, rage quit..twice for a break. The island is brutal, well not the island itself but the amount of enemies and difficulty is.

One area left to tackle, the volcano base, probably have to use a helicopter to reach it due to barred doors i noticed on a recon. Can't access skell computer structure either as it's got a barred door. Those monoliths are everywhere, i think that's how you get in some interiors.

I also went round destroying those white control panels for fun, they don't do anything outside of the raid mission.

I play with limited hud;

ammo count, health bar, inventory
minimap set to small
no detection warning
no enemy icons above heads
no dectection clouds
no loot markers (crates only on minimap)
only objective markers
marked enemies on minimap
vehicles on minimap

There's lots of secret areas on golem island that you would not see when playing the raid.

I’ve spent some time there as well thanks to you. I got to the top of the lava dam, and could see from my drone where one of the Raid arenas was up a bit higher, but the lift wasn’t working so I had to abandon going up there. I also tried climbing up to the volcanoes rim, but couldn’t find a way. And my drone was jammed after going higher so I wonder if there’s just nothing rendered near the top of the rim?

Strangely, on the tac map, much of the rim looks the same shade of red as man-made structures. Am I missing something up there?

No mans land was epic. You have to use thermal as visibility is 5’. And the number of enemies there is just insane.

Any cool secret areas I should be sure to check out?

I found a woman’s body tied to a tree with a radio making noise, surrounded by land mines... that was epic.

That's my no mans land playthrough, the longest video, it was epic like you said. I kept thinking, this has to be the last few enemies and then there's more...arghhhh

where'd you find the body on a tree?

there's two areas past no mans land on the coast with either one or two crates.

the dish and missile site ruins were also pretty epic and had lots of enemies.

forgotten sanctuary had loads of enemies too.

scandium mine was hard when i did it as it was night and the ash was falling, doesn't always seem to fall. There's a cave near the camp site by the tower near the mine with a crate and some bones.

prototype workshop was a challenge as it had lots of enemies and 4 of those 4 wheel drones and several of those large flying ones that with spaz movements and a couple of the small flyers too.
i had all that sh*t come at me so i hid in the the small office near the entrance and kept shooting everything from the doors and windows, was chaos.

I took a chopper to the island a few times, there's nothing at the top of the volcano, even though it says wolves on the map, that platform is just for the last boss.

The amazing thing is that most of Auroa is just copy and paste factories, offices and homes. Here, nearly all the facilities are fairly unique. The dish, oil refinery, dam, etc are very cool. I love how they did the lava and ash effects.

To find the woman’s body tied to a tree, if you’re at the starting Bivoac facing the island, go right... to the first bay between the drone testing area and the old missile site. There’s a beach and a path running along it and towards one end there are three motorcycles In the bush... she’s just a bit south of those motorcycles. Be wary of the clicking sounds... those are land mines.

FYI:

If you don’t bring a helicopter with you and want to go up to the zeta complex there’s often a large cargo truck parked right by the gate- just back it up to the gate, climb up on the hood, then the roof over the back of the truck and jump over.

Sometimes you need to bring a truck up with you but there are lots at the mine and usually one or two at the repair shop.

A player did that last night when i finally got round to trying the raid for real, so now i know the shortcut.

Getting there with the Cheat Engine doesn't get you banned?

And really, if you don't mess other people's games up and you can't do the raids, or get the loot... Why should it get you banned?

Not that I feel this specific type of use should result in a ban. But it is against the terms of use. It's mostly a restriction because threat potential inherent with modding, not specifically the way each mod is used.
