Ghost Recon Wildlands - How to Get the R4 Assault Rifle

Learn how to get the R4 Assault Rifle in Ghost Recon Wildlands Fallen Ghosts.

One of the more fun things to do in Ghost Recon Wildlands is track down and obtain weapons to take with you on your journey through the game. While the first Ghost Recon Wildlands DLC, Narco Road, was a bit of a letdown, Fallen Ghosts has lots of new toys for you to track down, including the R4 Assault Rifle.

How to Get the R4 Assault Rifle

Unfortunately, getting your hands on the R4 Assault Rifle in isn’t as straightforward as obtaining the HTI Sniper Rifle from the vanilla game. To get the R4, players will have to follow through the main story of the Fallen Ghosts DLC as they face Los Extranjeros, which is quite annoying in our opinion.

Once you’ve begun the Fallen Ghosts DLC, work your way through the Eastern Precinct, focusing on the seven main story missions that must be completed there. This will include having to face and defeat the Easter Precinct boss, Captain Tomas Ortega. Once you’ve killed Captain Ortega, players will unlock the R4 Assault Rifle.

In our opinion, the R4 is considered a bit of an upgrade over the M4A1 Assault Rifle in Ghost Recon Wildlands, especially if you value damage and handling with your Assault Rifles. The one major downfall for the R4 compared to the M4A1 is the range. The M4A1 has more, but that’s what the MSR Sniper Rifle and the T5Xi Tactical Scope are for, right?

While unlocking the R4 Assault Rifle in Ghost Recon Wildlands Fallen Ghosts isn’t going to be as rewarding as tracking down some of the game’s other weapons, it’s a good gun. It should serve you well in your quest to take down Los Extranjeros, or at least give you some options if you haven’t already found your favorite weapon in the game.
