Operation Tactical Insertion - Playtest

Public Feature Playtest for everyone! Just one day!


Ghost Recon Online has a brand new feature coming to the game in the not too distant future -  Tactical Insertion. Tactical Insertion is an item that, once activated, allows the Ghosts in your Tactical Team to choose to spawn beside you, rather than at your team’s base. Not only will this allow for even higher levels of teamplay in GRO, but it will open up new ways to play the game and dominate the battlefield!

As the introduction of Tactical Insertion is such a large update to Ghost Recon Online, we’re going to run a special testing session and we want to give you the chance to be a part of it! The primary focus of the test will be to ensure that Tactical Insertion performs as intended, and is well balanced. After each match, you’ll receive the opportunity to provide your feedback. For those of you who frequent the forum, we want to see all of the feedback that you have to offer on this new feature in this thread

This playtest session will not happen in the live build of the game that you’re all familiar with; rather, it will take place on an entirely new testing environment for Ghost Recon Online. This means that everyone will need to sign in, choose a name, and start testing with brand new level 1 soldiers. For the purposes of this test, both Tactical Insertion and Smoke Grenades will be available at the rock bottom price of 1 RP. 

As Operation Tactical Insertion is taking place in an entirely new test environment, you will need to download a new build of the game, which is approximately 2.8 GB large. To make this a little bit easier on everyone, you can download the build now, before the testing sessions start!
