Tips to start playing

These are some basic tips and considerations that you should have in your first hours with Far Cry: New Dawn :

  • Collect all the objects and materials you find byexploring the scenarios and visiting each building you find. These materials will take you to build new weapons , something basic to progress in the adventure.
  • Whenever you can storm and take an enemy positiondo so , as they provide you with one of the most valuable resources in the game: ethanol . We need this to improve Prosperity, the base of operations, and it is not optional, since it is a couple of occasions in history that force you to improve it in order to progress.
  • One of the first facilities you should upgrade in Prosperity is Expeditions, as it unlocks your quick trip to freed posts (level 1) and locations (level 2), something basic if you don’t want to take unnecessary long walks.
  • When you have taken a stand you can loot it; You will get extra ethanol, and more difficult enemies will come, increasing the rewards of that position. If you take multiple stalls, release them and conquer them again, you will get huge sums of ethanol.
  • In this Far Cryboth enemies and animals have a level of difficulty or experience (1, 2, 3 and elite), and your weapons also have an indicated level, so to face level 2 enemies, we will need level weapons 2, although if we fight with level 1 weapons we can also defeat them, but it will be a harder combat. If you try to face level 3 enemies with level 1 weapons you will have nothing to do.
  • To improve your character you need talent points, and these are obtained by performing challenges , but also in the 10 scavenger hunts. The challenges are varied and some quite simple, from a certain number of enemies with each type of weapon to hunting three animals of each class. Take a look at the list of challenges to see which are the easiest and most achievable in the first hours of the adventure.
  • When it comes to spending talent points to improve the character, there are talents that are a higher priority than others. For example, we recommend that you first unlock the hook , which allows you to reach otherwise inaccessible areas, or the torch , in order to open safes. Keep in mind that certain talents can be unlimitedly improved, such as increases in being able to carry a certain number of ammunition, first-aid kits or the ability to sprint.
  • Don’t go crazy looking for collectibles or other resources: in the Prosperity cartographysection we can buy maps that indicate the exact position of all these objects.

News regarding Far Cry 5

Far Cry: New Dawn is a direct sequel to Far Cry 5 , and takes place on the same stage 17 years later. Therefore its gameplay is very similar, and if you have played the previous installment you will feel at home. Even so, there are several news and changes that you should take into account :


  • The difficulty of the enemies and animalsis indicated by a number from 1 to 3, and a fourth called elite (yellow with a crown), so look at the level of your weapons, and you will know if you can face those dangers.
  • In this installment we can only be accompanied by a hired gunman, one of the comrades controlled by the AI, unlike Far Cry 5 , where we could take two.
  • The ethanolis the most important resource of this release and is achieved by releasing enemy positions. Every time you have a position at hand, buy it, since you will need ethanol, even to progress in the adventure.
  • Stalls can be taken, looted, and freed, bringing harder enemies and bigger rewards, something you can do unlimitedly with the game’s 30 stalls.
  • In this installment we cannot control air vehicles suchas planes or helicopters and fly freely through the stages.
  • In this installment, the canine companion, this time Timber, does accompany us in the vehicles .
  • Expeditionsare a new type of mission that takes us out of Hope County and offers us rich rewards. They can also be played cooperatively with a friend, via the internet.
  • Be careful when taking some enemy vehicles, they may have traps. If you take a car from an enemy and start to whistle, get off and run, because it will explode.
