→ Tip 6 – Don’t make the side quests your priority :
We need to tell you something, it’s urgent and maybe we should have put this trick first… Don’t finish the secondary quests of a region before you’ve done the main quests ! We don’t know if this is a Ubisoft mistake, but if you kill the boss of a region then some main quests will become unreachable until the end of the adventure. Worse still, those that you have activated and that you have not finished will simply be validated by the game without giving you time to think about whether or not to do them.
Don’t mount your RP gauge too quickly in the zones by doing extra stuff, save it for later and make the main missions of the game a priority so you don’t miss anything… You never know, it could block some trophies / achievements. Let’s hope this is all a mistake and the Ubisot teams fix it !
→ Tip 7 – Boom! explode everything, take a good look around you :
You had decided to do this outpost in stealth mode, but no luck things did not go as they should… Here the alarm sounds and guys from the sect arrive from everywhere… It’s panic, you must react quickly…
It’s a good thing, these andouilles (IA Ubisoft oblige) parked like losers next to this red thing that explodes. Shoot it and make a nice bunch of enemies. Never forget in far Cry 5 that most red objects can explode if you shoot them, and this applies to vehicles or containers with a « flammable warning » symbol written on them.
→ Tip 8 – upgrade and customize your weapons with accessories :
Well, you just bought this superb prestige AR-C » Stars ’N Stripes » weapon and you are all happy to shoot your first fanatics with it. Wait! Wait! It would be even better with a little customization.

In addition, you can also view your weapons and equipment in detail to find out what types of bullets you can use, what bait you can hang on your fishing rod and many other things that will make your life easier and help you better understand how your equipment works.
→ Tip 9 – Hunting and fishing popular and lucrative activities :

No, but you’ve seen these bugs, they’re at best drugged or enraged, someone has to do something.
