BQSR and Novaseq quality scores

Dear all,
we recently bought an Illumina Novaseq instrument and as a first project sequenced some human whole genomes.
Since the Novaseq only has 4 quality scores (2, 11, 25 and 37) I was wondering if BQSR makes any sense. Could you please be so kind comment on this issue?
