Ghost Recon Wiki

In Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, the Buchons are leading figures within the Santa Blanca Drug Cartel, responsible for key areas of the cartel's operations and management. Each Buchon also serves as the "boss" of a specific province of Bolivia; undermining the cartel's control over each region means killing or apprehending the local Buchon during the game's story missions.
