Let’s mark a goal to make yourself a brilliant guerrilla fighter to take down the dictator, Anton, and his army.

On moving ahead, you’ll meet other guerrillas, black market dealers who have their own reasons to join you in the fight, including Juan Cortez (Guerrilla Friend).

3. Far Cry 6 with more features

However, it is not like a great departure for the series but its new features are quite better enough.

I. Holster your weapon to blend in

You can easily blend in the army of dictator Castillo by holstering your weapon. You are going to take them down by yourself. So, please don’t go too close for combats and mind some gap from your enemies when you are far away from them and see some enemies approaching you. Holster your weapon and take them down in a single blow.

II. Unique deadly weapons

There are plenty of unique deadly weapons on display like supremo backpacks that fires missiles & creates flame walls, weapons that fire compact discs while blaring Macarena, and miniguns built from motorcycle engines that execute your enemies’ army in a single blow.

III. Use photos to find mission locations

In the gameplay, we have seen Dani walking through a town holding up her phone. A shot of a building with graffiti on the walls appears on her phone’s screen, while another displays a hand-drawn depiction of a trail with palm trees. It’s the simple answer that Dani uses the photos on her phone to find the location. It is really a great feature, you no more have to use the map icon to find the location of what you are looking for.

IV. Animal pals as NPCs

“We don’t have Guns for Hire, per se, but we do definitely have other NPCs with you,”

David Grivel

For your company, there are some animal pals like Chorizo, an enthusiastic Daschund puppy in a wheelchair who can distract your enemies, and Guapo, a loyal crocodile who can tear your enemies into pieces & eat them with his golden tooth

I prefer the company of these animal pals over the humans.

V. Riding Horses

In Far Cry 5, Montana is a state which is known for having horses but, you never got to ride. Finally, Ubisoft solves this weirdness and now you can ride horses.

You must be more excited for riding horses in the wild and mountainous terrain of Yara than driving a car.

VI. World looks real and beautiful

Far Cry 5’s Montana was a big and attractive place but never felt like a real one. However, Far Cry also solves this reality thing too and comes with such beautiful and real views. A true country with a massive capital city, numerous cities and villages strewn throughout the landscape, immense wildness, and tiny islands dotting the horizon.
