Usually, in newer games, you can skip through the missions you don't want to play, or avoid grinding by buying DLC to unlock the game or progress through it quicker. Well, you don't have to buy DLC to quickly skip through a ton of missions in Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

IGN discovered that it's possible to get to the very end of the game, the final mission against the boss El Sueno without doing much at all. First, join an online game. Then, simply make sure you're teamed either with friends or other players who have already defeated the other four cartel bosses. This will automatically update your bounty board and enable you to take on El Sueno's mission even if you didn't complete any of the other missions leading up to him.

If you haven't defeated any of the cartel bosses on your Santa Blanca mission board, but you join two or more players in the online mode where they have, it will enable you to go back and play those missions even when you eventually go offline and play solo.

The hook is that even after you unlock El Sueno by joining someone else's game in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, you won't have to worry about having to grind through the main campaign in order to unlock the final mission. What's more is that when you replay the missions you can gain access to all the higher level rewards without having to build up to them first. This sort of thing is a great way to breeze through the game if you find yourself not really enjoying the game and you just want to get to the end.

Alternatively, you might not have a lot of time to play and maybe you just want to see how the Ghosts take down the big baddie... well, that's one method to use in order to do so.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands follows up on Ubisoft's two previous titles, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Ghost Recon: Phantoms, the former of which launched for home consoles and the latter of which launched for PC. Ubisoft decided to take a very different approach with Wildlands by putting it in a fully open world environment within the beautiful but troubled region of Bolivia.

The game features the ability to team up with three other friends, ride around the open world, steal cars (for mission purposes, of course), customize your character, outfit them with a cool weapon, and take on a variety of different missions sprinkled across the game's world.

The design of Ghost Recon: Wildlands is actually quite similar to Avalanche Studios' Just Cause, so gamers who are familiar with the tropical action title will likely be at home with Ubisoft's open-world take on Ghost Recon. Of course, you won't have access to a grappling hook, a wingsuit or tons of physics-based explosions taking place throughout the environment.

You can make use of the news tip to jettison through the game and get to the final boss without much effort. Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available right now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
