Far Cry 6: Does the Protagonist’s Gender Choice Matter?

This page of the Far Cry 6 guide provides information on when you can choose the gender of your protagonist and if your choice affects the gameplay.

This guide to Far Cry 6 explains when to select the gender of your main character. Additionally, you will learn if the character’s gender has any impact on the gameplay, such as quests, dialogues, or romance.


When starting a new game, the first thing you do is determine the gender of your main character. After beginning the initial main mission “La Noche De La Muerte,” you will talk to Lita, and during the conversation, you can view the conscription document.

You can change between two documents by using the left and right directions on the d-pad. Dani Rojas, the protagonist of Far Cry 6, can be a male or a female, and both genders are considered canon.

Note – You cannot change the protagonist’s gender later, similar to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The only way to do so is to restart the entire campaign.

Choosing the protagonist’s gender does not impact the gameplay. Far Cry 6 does not offer any quests, romances, or unique dialogue options that are exclusive to a male or a female. Both genders can perform the same activities, take part in the same conversations, and complete the same quests. The combat difficulty level remains the same – both genders can perform equally well in direct confrontations and covert actions.

The character you choose is not silent – they speak multiple times throughout the game in a male or female voice. They also appear in cut-scenes and in the equipment menu.
