Hunting Wild Animals

In Far Cry 6, you can hunt wild animals anywhere in the game world, but it’s better to visit Hunting Spots to target specific species. Hunting Spots can appear on your map when you explore the game world or find brochures with locations marked with exclamation points on the radar.

Additional hint – Animals are tagged when you do recon with your smartphone. You can keep track of them more easily this way.

When hunting, try to sneak up on the animal to avoid spooking or alarming it (if it’s a predator). Avoid using heavy weapons because they might damage the meat of the animal you were hunting.

Ideally, you should use a bow, a crossbow, or a sniper rifle. Aim at the animals’ heads from a greater distance. After shooting the animal, collect the meat.

Building and upgrading a Hunter’s Lodge can help you in hunting. You can order it at the construction desk as one of the projects to be placed at a rebel hideout (Montero Farm, Patriotas Peak, or Maximas Camp).

By building and upgrading a Hunter’s Lodge, you can:

  1. buy brochures with information about the next hunting spots,
  2. buy equipment (e.g. clothing, weapons) with various stat bonuses useful for hunting.

Fishing Techniques

To fish in Far Cry 6, you need a fishing rod which you obtain as a reward for completing the operation called Fuel the Revolution. From this point on, you will be able to select it from the equipment drop-down menu (hold down L1/LB).

When fishing, look for areas with plenty of fish and cast your line. Once you have a bite, reel in the line by pulling the left stick on the controller or mouse on PC. Follow the on-screen prompts to keep the fish on the line and reel it in.

Remember to be patient when fishing. Some fish can be tricky to catch, and it may take several attempts to get a bite. Keep practicing, and you’ll soon become a skilled angler.

Cooking Game Meat

After hunting, you can cook the game meat to restore health and gain temporary bonuses. You can cook meat by accessing the cooking menu via the weapon wheel.

Each type of meat has different cooking requirements and provides unique bonuses. Experiment with different combinations to find the most effective meals for your needs.

While you can technically fish anywhere in the game, your chances of catching fish are much higher in designated Fishing Spots that cater to specific species. These spots can be discovered through exploration or by locating documents marked with exclamation points on the radar.

Before you start fishing, make sure to find the nearby equipment box. This box will provide you with the right gear for the specific fish species you’re targeting, as the default fishing rod is unlikely to yield success.

The actual fishing mini-game is fairly straightforward. Cast your lure, wait for a fish to bite, and then engage in a “fight” with the fish by moving in the opposite direction while avoiding line breaks.

Building a Fishing Hut at one of the rebel hideouts (Montero Farm, Patriotas Peak, or Maximas Camp) can greatly aid your fishing efforts. Once built and upgraded, the Fishing Hut can provide you with fishing equipment and information on upcoming Fishing Spots.

Cooking Meat

All the meat and fish you’ve hunted or caught can be put to good use once you’ve built La Cantina at one of the guerrilla hideouts. This will allow you to cook meals that provide temporary stat boosts.

With La Cantina, you can create meals that offer bonuses such as increased carrying capacity, poison resistance, or attack power. Only one bonus can be active at a time, but as you level up La Cantina, you’ll unlock new recipes and types of meals.
