H*AO offers better quality but with an increased performance hit. SSAO is less accurate but improves image quality with a much smaller performance penalty. If you're going to use H*AO, from what I understand you should select HDAO if you have an ATI card or HBAO if you have an nVIDIA card. HBAO and HDAO are essentially the same thing but different vendor ...

I have the opposite problem, I have too much money, so I must be doing things differently than you... Here's what you should do to earn money (or save on spending): Don't buy weapons. As you unlock radio towers, weapons will unlock for free at vendors. Picking weapons you didn't buy/unlock off enemies seem to unlock it for free as well. There are a few ...

You really ought to be clearing radio towers; they reveal the minimap in the area, give you free guns, and provide a nearby respawn point (though you can't fast-travel to them). The latter benefit isn't that useful if you're on PC - even though it's not listed in the controls, F9 will quicksave and F11 will quickload, unless you're currently in a mission ...

Note that the requirement for getting the full "Clear outpost without getting seen" bonus, is that they don't see you (this includes guard dogs, by the way). It doesn't matter how much they hear from you, your rocks, your guns and your explosives. Also, the alarm will only be triggered after a soldier saw you with his own eyes. You can make as much noise as ...

The reason you aren't finding any boars is because there are very few areas where they are common. For example I've unlocked 8 Radio Towers and have only opened up one area that has them. Here is the the best screenshot I could take that should allow you to figure out how to get to the boars. Also pointed out what a pig is so you know the difference. ...

Blood Dragon is a totally new game built using the engine and assets of Far Cry 3. Think of it as an officially sanctioned Total Conversion mod that has been released as a standalone game.

The gameplay of Blood Dragon is largely based on Far Cry 3. Most of the enemies are identical to FC3, except for their graphics. The terrain is also very similar to FC3. Many unique gameplay aspects from Far Cry 3 were used with almost no modifications: Open-World gameplay with a world map Collectibles The cover mechanics The takedown mechanics The health ...

Sometimes you'll see an item on the map, stand exactly where it is, and won't see it. The truth is, it can be directly above or below you, maybe even inside a cave below the island. The best way to see where an item is, is step a few meters back, open the map and set a custom marker on it. The custom marker will show up on your HUD as a rectangle and you ...

Fully Inked is an achievement that requires you to "Earn every tattoo by learning all the skills". This confirms that it is possible to earn all skills and since there is no new game + mode, it must be possible to earn on a single playthrough. It is unlikely that all story and side missions combined would provide enough XP to unlock all skills however ...

There is no use for skins other than crafting and selling. If you've crafted all of the items and don't need the money, then you don't need to skin killed animals.

I found a tower weapon unlock list here: Radio Towers reward you with free weapons and items and they also unlock nearby Supply Drop missions. You’re rewarded with free weapons based on the amount of Radio Towers you’ve unlocked, not by the specific Radio Tower itself. This means that if you want a specific weapon, you can just go for the ...

I will answer this question based upon my own ingame experience: Does being in shadow or nighttime matter? No difference observed. The handbook says hiding in foliage makes you less visible. Do you actually need to keep leaves/branches/stalks in between you and the enemy, or can you just find a big fern and crouch near it? As long as the ...

Unfortunately, there is not a way to stop the animations unless the body is ragdolled in such a way that the animation is prevented from happening. The only way is to opt for the Loot Takedown skill, which will automatically loot enemies on a takedown. But after the bullets start flying, takedowns aren't easily executed.

Currently, yes, once the outposts are cleared your encounters with enemies will become few and far between. However patch v1.05 for the game now allows you to reset all the outposts so that you can still have enemies to face after completing the game. Single Player: Ability to Reset Outposts A big part of Far Cry 3’s single player experience is ...

Here are the quotes: "In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again." "'I like the Walrus best,' said Alice: 'because you see he was a LITTLE sorry for the poor oysters.' 'He ate more than the Carpenter, though,' said Tweedledee." "'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all ...

To add to this answer (also, these are more important in the earlier-middle parts of the game as in later parts of the game, money will no longer be an issue): The 'Refill Inventory' option when buying in a shop refills the ammo for all equipped weapons, throwables, and explosives for a 20% discount. Buy those items through this option whenever ...

Yes you can. To blind-fire, crouch behind cover, and press fire without aiming with your sights.

Use a mod like Schwartz Mod Compilation This will unlock the 2nd island, remove the Fog of War and allow you to purchase all the guns from the beginning of the game, even the Special guns. This leaves very little reason to climb the towere in the first place seeing as the FoW is removed all over. Remember to revert back to the original files you ...

If you clear the outposts, most of the enemies you face will come from missions - when you start a mission, enemies spawn at the mission location no matter how many outposts you've cleared. Random encounters will also occur even after outposts have been cleared - for example, you may stumble onto an ongoing battle between Rakyat and Pirate forces while ...

Short version: Yes, you can revisit the islands and you will not miss anything important. Long version: There will be certain places (caves, buildings) that are only accessible in missions while you are doing the specific mission. Once the mission is over, you might not be able to access the specific place anymore. This will include items that you can ...

I noticed that the game automatically saves: After buying or selling from a store When you have reached a checkpoint in a quest When you have finished a quest When you enter a quest area After you liberate an outpost Quest is defined here as a story-mission, a mission from the job board at outposts (hunting, assassination) or a Trial of the Rakyat ...

As I mentioned in the comments earlier, Yes you can blind-fire from cover in Far Cry 3. The tips shown in the loading screens are correct. To do so, get behind any cover that your weapon can shoot over or shoot around. Then just simply hold down the button mapped to shoot your weapon! (By default: either Right Trigger or Left click depending on which ...

Signature weapons are version of normally available weapons with pre-installed mods and custom paint jobs. Each of the base weapons is or will be available separately in the store, not necessarily before his "signature" counterpart (Specifically, the Vektor is available late game, I unlocked most signature counterparts before their "normal" versions). You ...
