While the button to switch shoulders in Ghost Recon Wildlands will differ depending on what platform you’re playing the game on, the general idea remains the same. While most players will favor looking over the right shoulder given that they’re right-handed, others may want to switch the camera over to the left shoulder.

In Ghost Recon Wildlands, you can freely switch the camera from your right and left shoulders. This often proves to be a useful strategy for dealing with hard-to-spot enemies and is worth knowing how to do even if you switch shoulders infrequently. To switch shoulders in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you’ll need to tap the following inputs as listed by platform…

  • PC: Tap the Middle Mouse Button to switch shoulders.
  • Xbox One: Tap RB to switch shoulders.
  • PlayStation 4: Tap R1 to switch shoulders.

Note that you don’t want to hold these inputs as this will cause something entirely different to happen by bringing up the Rebel Support menu on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. By quickly tapping these inputs, though, you’ll be able to switch between right and left shoulder perspectives in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
