I'm sure Mars will be open world, I mean why give us a jetpack if it's not? That'd just be stupid

 

I think Zombies won't be.... cause it's a movie by Guy Marvel. Having Post Apocalypse Hope County as a map would be pretty cool though, even if it's just restricted to Falls End like AC's Jack the Ripper didn't edit the entire London map for it just an area of it.

This weekly challenge....

UGH!

 

Kill enemies from 160 meters away.....

WHY is this a thing?!

Glad it's lowered to 350,000......

 

I know the PERFECT place to get it.... if you know, enemies spawned post game outside outposts :/

The mission you unlock Hurke in, you're in the perfect spot before you zipline on over

Wait, people who have finished still play this game for the live events? I stopped caring, even if I miss out on all the gear. The game is a closed book to me for now.

Never mind the fact it's nearly impossible to tell how far away the enemy is, and the enemies won't draw in if you get too far away

I always HATED those Far Cry achievements with a passion, especially the arrow related ones

 

 

If anyone is interested; I suggest doing the outposts near water for this. Just dock your boat far enough away, get out binoculars and mark the enemies then get out your sniper and have at 'em

It was a lot easier than finding a cliff or mountain to fire down upon an outpost from

I thought I was the only one who found the shooting way off. I've had tons of situations where I was aiming at an enemy who's doing f*ck all and somehow miss his noggin by a mile.

Trying to find out if I have a bug, but ever since finishing the campaign Im constantly followed around the map by Nick Rye in his plane. If having the sound of his plane constantly circling me wasnt bad enough, he also opens fire on the few remaining pockets of enemies whenever I get near.

 

Ive tried hiring them dismissing him, in case he was stuck in a permanently hired loop of some sort, but it doesnt seem to have made any difference.

 

Is this normal after-game behaviour from this particular GFH?

It's not Nick Rye it's just a friendly plane, you can still call for Nick Rye.

Yeah, this isn't a bug. It sounds like this guy is experiencing one of the many problems with Far Cry 5's terrible AI :pp

 

It's not just enemies, even the good guys are affected by this poor design. It's also one of the reasons why stealth doesn't work in this game. Either you haven't liberated a region yet and there's CONSTANT patrols of cult pilots spawning directly above you and flying in endless circles... or you've liberated a region and there's CONSTANT patrols of militia pilots spawning directly above you and flying in endless circles. The cult pilots have telescopic infra-red vision and can spot you virtually anywhere outdoors. The militia pilots draw attention to themselves and engage any wild animals or enemies at outposts.

 

You can't play stealth with any consistency and you can't really enjoy the Montana atmosphere. The sound of a buzzing biplane engine almost never ends in this game. Just one among the many other questionable gameplay decisions which have ruined this Far Cry for me.

Well this live event is f*cked lol

80,000 of 350,000 on day three

 

Should have been 100,000 with a task like this honestly. Every other goal went up because of players just playing the game.... when would somebody EVER shoot somebody from 160 meters?

Shoot them down

So you're constantly wasting ammo and/or giving away your position to any enemies in the area, ruining any chance you'd prefer to be stealthy? No thanks. The solution for bad gameplay design shouldn't be forcing the player to shoot down a plane every 5 minutes. The solution would be a complete overhaul of the AI so that it resembles something that is even remotely realistic. Because right now it's comically unrealistic and frustrating.

 

There are planes everywhere. It's ridiculous.

But apparently - according to the story - the county is being ravaged by these cult members because people are having trouble 'making contact' with the outside world or getting any help. Does anyone notice how incredibly stupid this is? The county is supposed to be isolated and you're supposed to be trapped which is why you're on the adventure to begin with... but there are planes EVERYWHERE. Anyone could have left and gotten help at any time.

 

Sorry I can't talk about Far Cry 5 without acknowledging what a dump it is. I'll stop.

Thanks to everyone that offered their help. It's too much of a pain to try and quote each, so I'll answer each directly.

 

@Shadowfennekin: Not tried hiring two GFH. I didn't bother getting the perk as I don't use GFH anyway. Although I did try hiring and dismissing Rick without it helping, so not sure that's the answer.

 

@Cutter De Blanc: Ah! I just assumed it was Nick as he often takes out enemies for me. Thought only the GFH did that?

 

@Doctor Holiday: No, the AI's certainly not the best, is it? Although I've experienced worse.

 

@Southland: Tried that, but a few minutes later he was back.

You have a point.

 

I already told you that if we where talking about a small town in the middle of nowhere, we could have a cult taking over. But a whole county in modern day US with smartphones and social media... Not happening.

I really wonder what happens if a live event fails

Like what happens to the reward? Is it just gone forever? Put in the shop?

 

This live event looks like the first one to fail. Such a sh*tty task. You can easily do it with planes/helis.... but still people just playing the game won't be adding anything as you have to go out of your way to do this

 

Usually a live event is 500,000-1,000,000 by now.... but it's not even at 125,000 lol and only three days to reach 350,000..... more than double

I wonder how the goal looks like on other consoles....

I love how there's music playing in Faith's region as it really adds to the eerie atmosphere of Henbane River, I love little touches like that.

 

Hunting alone at night with Only You playing in the distance is fantastically eerie.

Gone forever or available again when they decided to put up the reward again.

I'd rather they just throw the outfits in the shop after the live events are done.

They throw other versions of the personal goal weapon/vehicle in the shop the week after the failure, so no harm done if you lost out on the Shovel Launcher or anything.

If they do Sharpshooter again, it'll just crash and burn again.

The progress is just shy of 150,000 out of 350,000 on the XB1, with only two days remaining... I'm glad the reward is nothing special this week.

It's the little details that do it for me, too.

 

I finished the game about three weeks ago and really thought I'd seen everything, but the other day I performed a takedown on a peggie who was crouched behind my car, and was pleasantly surprised to see my character drag him over the bonnet / hood and ram his head into the side of the car a couple of times. Months of gameplay and I'd never seen this takedown before.

Right?

I'm hoping we hit the silver bars at least. Only 6,000 away from that...

 

Thankfully it's not Faith/Jacob we're missing out on for losing.

I was rather curious if the Hunter was another special outfit, or if we could actually mix and match though. I'd have loved to use the glasses

Heh.... wow

They never seem to be near vehicles in places I can sneak up on them. Really makes the first rank of saboteur useless tbh. I mainly got the achievement and perk for it by shooting and tricking Peggies to run towards the car while I ran in the opposite direction as it was blowing up

This week's personal challenge gives a different type of gun.

If only they lowered the community goal this low last week

 

And nothing against Kim, but eh.... why does she need a special outfit? You only see her like three times; Every minor character getting a skin or something? I suppose this does make up for all the times the Male deputy rewards haven't been as good though, like that Road Kill event.... the guy's just walking around shirtless, wow.

 

Hope Jacob and Faith are next week

I'm sure even if this week's community challenge target is 1000000, we would have finished it. The community challenge was done just in a few hours. The possibility of this week's task is really high, whereas the last week's sniper task was really pushing us on the edge of the gun's functionality border.

 

I guess the 'best offer' reward is the one that they put on their Challenge announcement on Twitter. For example, they showed the female's set for the Road Kill event and this time they showed Nick's outfit instead of Kim's. I guess this hipster Japanese wife's costume is just there to fit the theme of his redneck husband's themed reward week. I like the simple stuff she's wearing, except that f*cking hair.

 

The idea of having female deputy running around in Faith's hair and dress is just whack. But I guess we will get Adelaide's first.
