Tips on How to Play Far Cry 5

  1. Start the game by going west

Map of Far Cry 5 is broken into 3 regions – North, East and West. You could venture into any of them and can still step back out and go to other regions.

If you go north first, you will have to go through long stretches of mountains dotted with lakes and rivers. If you start with east first, you will be surrounded by Bliss fields and get constant harassments by Angels, zombie-like Bliss-addicts of the game. Going west first is a good move. It’s mostly flat, making it easier to traverse. It also offers a good variety of people to meet and missions to do.

  1. Get boomer right away

You will have animal buddies in Far Cry 5. One of the most helpful buddies is Boomer, a video dog game that is not only your pet but can also help spot and fight enemies, revive you when you’re down and get fallen guns from enemies.

Though you can find other allies in this game, having Boomer first is a smart move. He’s the easiest to unlock and one of the best among allies. Head to the southwest to a place called Rae-Rae’s Pumpkin Farm as soon as you’re done with the game’s prologue on Dutch’s island. Find an enemy cultist named “Peggies” and kill them. Then look for a dog inside a cage. You have your new best friend as soon as you’re able to pet him.

  1. Socialize on everyone you meet

Talking to everyone you meet in Far Cry 5 is helpful. You can get as much information as you can when you socialize. You unlock portions of the map every time you read a map, visit someone in person or hear about it from a stranger.
