It's an item like grenades and so forth. Once you have them, if you're on keyboard it's 5-0. I need to use the item wheel but I'm not sure how to do it.How the hell do you equip the binoculars? I could find no way, and the online "tutorials" are vague and contradicting.
I can't tag enemies either. The binoculars are in my inventory (strangely it shows up as a consumable) but not visible on the item wheel.It's an item like grenades and so forth. Once you have them, if you're on keyboard it's 5-0. I need to use the item wheel but I'm not sure how to do it.
Scroll down a little bit. This might be helpful. The interface and menus definitely could stand to be more intuitive.
Thank you for making me feel like less of an idiot. I figured all that out after more trial and error then was necessary and that's the problem with this game. With Wildlands I think we all were able to jump in and play.I ended up re-starting the game, the skills menu defeated me. I kept trying to scroll down on it, and couldn't figure out how to unlock new skills, so in my confusion I spent all my skill points unlocking classes. I only realized after spending 3 hours in the game that you have to scroll up instead of down to see the actual skills.
I also figured out how to equip the binoculars. It's ridiculous. You equip items on the quick access wheel by clicking on the items already on it, not by clicking on items you want to equip. Completely backwards if you ask me. But with the binoculars it's even worse, as you're only allowed to put it in the bottom left slot, nowhere else. If you click anywhere else it simply doesn't show up as selectable.
Even after figuring out how to equip it I still think it was a stupid idea to relegate the binoculars into a regular item instead of having a dedicated shortcut for them.
On more than one occasion I accidentally thrown a grenade, because that was the selected item instead of the binoculars.
What I still can't figure out is how to mark enemies. Is that even possible in immersive mode? I'm still enjoying the core gameplay, but the game is quite a bit more challenging without the ability to tag enemies.Thank you for making me feel like less of an idiot.

I've actually had some good moments in this that have recalled Wildlands because I'm trying to play it that way as much as I can.
Once you got to the cave base and got things off the ground it opened things up some more.
I agree with a lot of your criticisms but I do find if I'm headed towards a mission of any kind I run into things on the map and "things happen." I have some XP boosters and I hit some refinery last night and I'm already at level 9 with Echelon class so I'm getting something done.
For $20 or so it's not bad. I'm able to get what I want out of it but some of this lack of intuitiveness is just inexcusable. If it wasn't broke, don't fix it.
I've been exploiting that AI when I can although when some of those soldiers with those "super drones" for lack of a better term show up I avoid them because that's crazy. Stealth "skill" kills rack up XP so I try to get as many stealth headshots in as I go along.And somehow even the enemy ai is also worse than in wildlands. It seems the AI only has two states in this game: Patrolling on a route, or rushing you. That's what all of them do, except for snipers, those are the only ones who don't try to rush you.
They can't even climb a ladder, If I'm on top of a tower, they swarm at the bottom and do nothing but shout. Plus they banter on a loop even when there is only one of them. LOL at first I would look around for the other guy until I realized that no, the game is this shoddy, that enemy soldiers do banter even when they are alone.
At least the main story missions and side missions seem interesting so far.
There is a quick travel system.So I started playing the game, and this way it is much better, but the helicopter is a joke, the physics is so simplistic compared to wildlands quasy realistic flight model, that I'd rather walk an hour than fly a minute in the game.
The other issue is the completely barren land, there is literally nothing on huge parts of the map, no civilians, no traffic, and thus no way to acquire a vehicle. If you loose your ride in an area like that you can walk for a long time before you find anything else.
For all intents and purposes the game is still two steps back from wildlands, but at least now it's not total looter shooter garbage.
For 20 it's not that bad, but it definitely isn't worth a cent more.

It absolutely is. "Garage" is the setting. All you have to do is select a vehicle and it will spawn every time you use the bivouac.I have not found that option. It's certainly not in the campsite menu.
Hell no me either.I'm not doing that.
It seems to me that class rank increases by doing specific challenges related to that class. For example I play as a sharpshooter and that required 15 headshots and using the armor piercing ability for the first rank upgrade, but haven't been paying any attention to it since and now I'm rank 7 or sg.I'm a little confused on how to rank up classes?
I found the smoke pillars extremely misleading. Sometimes they seem like they are right next to you, then it turns out they are two regions away from you. I can't even decide which one is closer when I see multiple ones.https://guides.gamepressure.com/tom-clancys-ghost-recon-breakpoint/guide.asp?ID=52130
I'm going to take a chopper and start flying around towards the smoke pillars going up into the air because that will unlock bivouacs quickly if I fly low.

At this point I don't even bother to try and reach them, I unlock biouvacs almost exclusively trough intel. I always choose the biouvac option when available.
