Loot, loot, loot!

See that body over there? LOOT IT. That crate right behind there? LOOT IT. If it’s not nailed down and gives you the prompt to loot it, you better gosh damn loot it! From ammo supplies to weapons caches, you’ll need everything you can get. You don’t want to be in the middle of a firefight and caught short on weapons and ammo.

Challenge Yourself

In order to level up your skillset you’ll want to complete the in-game challenges. These are the fastest way to move through the ranks and a sure-fire way to help you get to know the ins and outs of the game. The higher the level, the more access to the great perks on offer. That should give you an edge when it comes to taking down The Father.

Make a Friend

As with previous Far Cry games, you’ll have the option to make a furry friend. These are great additions to your party and definitely help to level the playing field. Whether it’s Boomer the dog or Cheeseburger the bear, these pet pals are a necessity for your team. You’ll also have the option to recruit some hired guns to help you out in taking down those harder to complete outposts. Everyone needs a friend sometimes so choose your companions carefully and prepare to take back Hope County!
