The AI Teammate Experience update for Breakpoint consists of an all-new progression loop, allowing players to improve their AI teammates, earn unique rewards and unlock challenges to complete. Players will now be able to level up their AI teammates, which will unlock tactical upgrades and better prepare them for combat.
Teammates will have a common Team Level and XP bar called Team XP which can be leveled up just by playing the game with AI teammates activated or by completing the Teammate Challenges. To track teammate progression, players can find a new progression bar at the top of the screen, displaying XP gained, Nomad’s level gauge and teammates’ level gauge. Additionally, once teammates have leveled up, an animation will appear on screen, informing players of newly unlocked upgrades. Players will also have 14 new challenges to tackle, which will grant both Team XP and cosmetic rewards.
To upgrade and customize teammates, players will be able to navigate a dedicated menu, showing teammate level XP, upgrades and challenges. Players will be able to unlock 14 upgrades for their AI Teammates:
- Three Active Abilities unique to each teammate including Piercing Shot, Scan and Combat Drone
- Two Active Abilities shared across teammates including Extra Revival and Fragmentation Grenades
- Nine Passive Abilities for increased damage or resilience
Title Update 4.0.0 will introduce more than just the leveling system. Players will now be able to adjust their squad with one, two, or three teammates, customize Rainbow teammates, hide AI teammates’ secondary weapon and more.
This update is the first of two title updates announced as part of Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s Year 2 Roadmap, with details available on the website.
