Yes, by buying a real laptop.

cant afford one

Bootcamp, like @5x5 there mentioned, is a way of letting one run Windows on a Mac. That's pretty much your buddy's only option. That said, if your buddy wants to play games, he bought an entirely wrong device for that as Macs don't really have the hardware for gaming -- this is to say, Ghost Recon may not run very well on it.

he has a home Windows Desktop

but he brought a MacBook Pro for school because it was eaiser for him to use, he didnt plan on playing games at school, but we have alot of free periods so he is very bored and wants to play games.

I will get him to use boot camp, and he is get him to get a external ssd to put it all on

crossover is a commercial version of WINE. The community does a lot of games. 

I see Uplay listed as working well with it,

but that doesn't mean Ghost Recon itself does..more research would need to be done.

 

I've played lots of games over the years on macs thru crossover or even in a parallels install....depends on the game and the mac how well it works though.

 

Also search for WINESKIN (a noncommercial WINE project that does game ports)

Before he goes doing all that. Verify that the hardware in the Mac book pro is enough to run the game. Apple is not known for using the most highest end hardware in those machines. Id be more concerned with the GPU. Many games from what I have seen thru Steam, state that they DONT support Intel iGPU's, in their system requirements. Thats not to say the game wont work, but its just not supported by the developer. 


You ever notice that many establishments have a sign that as "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service"? They never say anything about pants............ You know what that implies. You dont have to wear pants.
