A complete guide for Far Cry 5.

Posted By | On 05th, Apr. 2018 Under Article, Video Game Tips


Far Cry 5 is a game that hands you a bunch of tools and quests and leaves you by yourself to survive out in the wilds. In these ways, the game is quite similar to other games in the Far Cry series. Given there are so many areas to explore, which are packed with quests to do and animals to hunt, there’s a lot to do in this game.  So if you’re looking for any information regarding crafting, hunting, or how to find any of the many collectibles you can collect in-game, this guide is your one-stop (free) shop for it all!

BEST WAYS TO EARN RESISTANCE METER POINTS

There are three distinct zones in this game and you’ll have to clear each of these regions before you can face the final boss. As you progress through the game, you’ll have to fill up the resistance meter in any way you can including by completing quests, liberating outposts, and more.

In your map, you will be able to see large icons which denote different human or animal characters. Make sure you visit these areas as they serve as hubs for various missions to do and therefore, more resistance points to earn. You can also get specialists from these areas to join you as a party member if you complete the required mission.

You can take to the skies and look for bright red structures on the map. You can blow these up to earn quite a large sum of resistance points. Plus, it’s always fun to blow things up!

Apart from this, also look out for pins or points of interest on your map, such as outposts to liberate. You’ll even be able to find random new side quests in such areas. Another good way to get such missions is to travel on the main road as you’ll often find some missions to do such as saving innocent civilians.

Additionally, you should go about completing as many missions you can. Story missions are limited in number but they offer great rewards. They are denoted by an American flag on your map. Once you’re done with these, look for the star icons on the map which indicate side missions.

HOW TO GET PERK POINTS

WEAPONS GUIDE

There is an assortment of weapons, guns and other melee types included that you can use in Far Cry 5. Without a Weapons Guide you would be inundated with stats and differing weapons attacks’ etc so be sure to go through this list. We’ve attempted to compile all the weapons in appropriate categories, including their upgrade info and listed out their strengths and attacks accordingly.

And remember, you can only upgrade your weapons- add silencers, increase stats etc- in the General Shop and these aren’t cheap by any means so you’ll have to practise some economy choosing and upgrading only those weapons that you’re most comfortable with.

Bows
The  Compound Bow is the only bow available. It has a short range but is fatally accurate when it hits its target.

HOW TO GO HUNTING

Hunting is a useful activity in the game and you can gain quite a lot of valuable loot from animals. You can also earn Perk Points by skinning animals. You can find information about animals in hunting magazines and this will also help you locate the animals you want to hunt.

The best weapons to hunt animals with are either the sniper rifle or the composite bow as these are highly accurate weapons. Remember that prey animals will run if they notice your presence whereas predator animals will attack you. Some bigger animals such as bears will not go down with a single shot and will take multiple shots to be killed, so be careful when going up against them.

To earn Perk Points by skinning animals, you’ll have to kill a specific number of a certain animal type. We have listed below the different animals you can kill along with the Perk Points you will be rewarded.

HOW TO FISH

Fishing is an activity undertaken purely at your leisure and interest in this game. If you enjoy it, there are a number of water bodies that you can fish at and catch a number of fishes here, from regular old salmon to Far Cry’s very own ‘demon fish’. These fish are profitable to sell in markets and even to feed Cheeseburger the bear if you have him as a companion. You can also earn Perk points by catching fishes.

You will first be able to start fishing after meeting Skylar whom you can find at Dylan’s Master Bait Shop on the border of Whitetail Mountains. Once you complete a mission for her, she will hand you a fishing rod and even give a tutorial on how to fish. Basically, once you select the appropriate bait, just throw the line into the water and wait for a fish to get hooked. Once a fish is hooked you’ll have to reel in the fish towards you. However, keep an eye on the tension so that it doesn’t turn red and leave some slack if the tension is getting too high. Remember to reel in the fish in the opposite direction from where the fish is swimming to. You’ll eventually be able to get the fish out of the water and into your bag. To catch some of the bigger fish, you’ll require the ‘Fisher King’ perk so make sure you get it if you’re going to focus a lot on fishing.

You can find below some of the locations where you can catch different fish.

  • Chinook Salmon: You actually come across this area for Cheeseburger’s quest. You can also fish on the Moccassin River which a is a little bit to the south of the FANG centre.
  • Bull Trout: You can find these in the main river which is north of Dutch’s island and which runs into Jacob’s territory.
  • Kokanee Salmon: North of Klagett Bay and Elk Jaw Lodge and to the north west of Dutch’s island, you’ll be able to find a fishing spot with this type of fish.

HOW TO CRAFT 

Crafting has always been an integral part of the Far Cry series but it takes a backseat in Far Cry 5. This is not to say that it isn’t useful as it can still come in handy whether it is to craft some necessary items or even explosives to take down enemy vehicles and structures.

There are various items that can be used to buff your character for a short duration, and these can really help you out a lot if used in the right situation. You can find below all of the items which you can craft in the game along with the materials required to craft these items.

  • The Fast: Requires 2 Bliss Oil and 2 Jimson Weed. Makes you faster for a short duration.

  • Liquor: Drink to get drunk.

You can craft explosives in the game and they can be extremely useful. They can also be crafted really quickly and can even be made in the middle of a fight. You will find materials to craft explosives scattered all around the world. You can look below to see where to find different crafting materials.
