How to Get the ACR in Ghost Recon Wildlands

Here’s how to get your hands on the ACR in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

This guide will show players where to find the ACR in Ghost Recon Wildlands, perhaps the best Assault Rifle in the entire game. It’s a heavily guarded weapon with plenty of UNIDAD in the way, but our guide can get you in and out safely without much trouble at all.

How to Get the ACR Assault Rifle

Players can find the ACR Assault Rifle in the Media Luna province, which is north of your starting province, Itacua. If you read our guide teaching you where to find the best scope in Ghost Recon Wildlands, the T5Xi Tactical, the Media Luna province is just to the east of the Koani province.

You can get the ACR Assault Rifle early in the game, and it’s probably not as difficult as you think it is. Start by finding yourself a helicopter in Itacua province, then set a waypoint for the La Loma compound in Media Luna. It’s in the northwest part of the province, right beside one of the rivers.

This is the exact location of the ACR Assault Rifle, and were we scouted the area from.

Fly your helicopter to the field that is northwest of the La Loma compound in Media Luna, doing your best to avoid UNIDAD helicopters along the way. Landing in the field will allow you to recon the area using your drone, binoculars and sniper rifle. If your drone is out of range, you could upgrade it with some Skill Points, or you could crawl closer to the compound. Just make sure you thoroughly recon the area before you move in.

Use your drone to recon the area, move up, and then do it again. Be thorough.

Once you’re sure that you’ve spotted all the UNIDAD in the area, look for a bunker-like lookout on the very west side of the compound. There will be one guard that patrols up there, and you’ll need to take him out with a suppressed round from your Sniper Rifle. To make this easier, consider getting the G28 sniper rifle, as it holds ten rounds. Just make sure he isn't too close to the stairs when you drop him, otherwise his pals could see the body. You are also going to want to take out the two snipers in the larger tower, so line up a Sync Mark with your squad and take them out as well. Don’t miss, otherwise getting the ACR will be much more difficult.

Sneak through the field and climb into the bunker-like building, taking cover behind the wall next to the stairs. There will be two guards who patrol the area, but they separate, giving you an opportunity to eliminate both with a suppressed weapon. Once they’re out of the way, sneak into the shipping container and claim the ACR Assault Rifle.

Once you have the ACR Assault Rifle, you can opt to continue clearing this compound, or you can head out to track down the M4A1 Assault Rifle, or perhaps even the MSR Sniper Rifle. If you’re not done collecting guns after those and the ACR Assault Rifle, you can read our guide on how to unlock guns in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
