Up Your Game - The Joys of Camouflage

The first of an informative series on Ghost Recon Online warfare

Ghost Recon Online is proud to bring you the Up Your Game Series – a series of articles with tips, tricks, and tactics for GRO combat. This week is all about the joys of camouflage.

From French Lizard print in World War I to modern Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP), militaries around the world have come to rely on camouflage in the field. Also known as Disruptive Pattern Material (DPM) , the classic stripe variants were first developed in the 1960's.

The original camo designs reflected animal patterns which disrupt the outline of a soldier against his surroundings, but many military units now use pixilated variations for optimum concealment. The modern digital patterns are designed with complex computer algorithms to create colored patches with softer edges which are more likely to appear in a real environment.

How does this help you in GRO?

Every GRO camo variant is unique and it's important to take a closer look at their stat enhancements. Whether it's the long-range power of the TAN series or the close-quarters kick of the OPM series, always keep your eye on the stats of a new series to see which may best suit your play style.

When facing a cloaked Recon, there are two main solutions: Oracle and vigilance. Using Oracle often and strategically down lanes is a must in any match, but especially against cloaked Recons. Your next best bet is your eyes and ears; listen for the Cloaking activation noise and footsteps when behind cover and keep your eyes peeled for the trademark Cloak blur.
