About Difficulty Levels
Changes Enemy Awareness & Precision
Difficulty levels in Ghost Recon Breakpoint affect the AI of enemy solders in each mode. The higher the difficulty, the more aware & precise enemy soldiers will be - making it more challenging to take them down or siege complexes.
Adjusts Ghost Health Regen
Health will also be affected according to the chosen difficulty settings. Ghosts will take longer to start health regeneration the higher the chosen difficulty.
