To get the Vector .45 ACP, you will need to either wait until the game sends you to Media Luna or commandeer a helicopter and fly across the border. Though Media Luna is a late-game area and greyed-out when you first start Ghost Recon Wildlands, you are still able to access the province and collect your Vector .45 ACP.

Due to Media Luna being a difficult area, we suggest picking up the HTI sniper rifle or the MSR sniper rifle before proceeding. This will help you take down any enemies from a distance, helping to reduce the amount of UNIDAD soldiers on patrol in the area.

First, you will need to access the Media Luna province. This can be done by driving, walking, or flying across the border, though flying is by-far the best choice as it will help you avoid unnecessary fighting.

Once inside Media Luna, you are looking for the military base, F.O.B. Buitre, this is where you’ll find the Vector .45 ACP. The F.O.B. Buitre base is located in the northeast section of Media Luna, near a train track.

The best means of entering the F.O.B. Buitre base in order to claim the Vector .45 ACP is to attack it from afar using a sniper rifle to pick off enemies. However, if you are a higher level, you can easily gun your way into the base using weapons such as the M4A1 assault rifle or even the ACR assault rifle. Though, it’s often best to use your stealth to your advantage.

After you’ve gained access to the F.O.B. Buitre base, you will want to head to the southeast quadrant of the base. It is here you will find a collection of buildings along with the armory that will hold the Vector .45 ACP.

Clear out any enemies in your way, enter the building labelled “ARMERIA”, and look for the weapon crate.

However, if you dislike how the Vector .45 ACP feels, you should consider finding the P90 submachine gun.
