Many of the new game’s that we’ve seen released over the past few years offer variations on their endings, allowing fans to make decisions throughout the game that ultimately determine the ending of their story. Ghost Recon Wildlands builds up this idea, offering up two endings for players to acquire in the game. In this article we’ll show you how to get the good ending in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

How to Get the Good Ending

If you want to achieve the “good ending” in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you’re going to need to be willing to invest quite a bit of time in the game. The only way that you can achieve the good ending is by dismantling the Santa Blanca Cartel completely. This means you’ll need to take down every buchon, underboss, and dismantle evert faucet of El Sueño’s criminal operations.

Considering the sheer size of the game world, and the missions involved in taking down each buchon, you’re going to need to invest quite a bit of time into the game. The best way to complete this daunting task is to focus on each area of the organization. Starting in Itacua, take out the first group of buchons that you need to take out, then spread out and continuing working against the Security side of the organization. Once Security is dismantled, start working on the Smuggling ring and shut down El Sueño’s supply trains.

Once Smuggling is taken care of, choose your next target and start working your way up. Now that you’ve taken down all of the Cartel buchons and underbosses, it’s time to target El Sueño himself. Complete the final mission and watch as the final cutscene plays out.

How to Get the Bad Ending

If you aren’t worried about getting the bad ending, then all you need to do is take out enough Santa Blanca cartel operations to bring El Sueño back into play. Once you’ve weakened the Santa Blanca enough, he’ll arrive in country, and you’ll be given the chance to take down the big boss. At this point you can complete the “final” mission and acquire the bad ending.

While the bad and good endings are technically subjective depending on how you wanted the game to turn out, they really aren’t all that different, and aside from some scenes in the cutscene, the gameplay itself is all the same.
