Longinus is a character from FarCry 4 who is a 'converted' warlord that got shot in the head and then nurtured by Priest Maliya, who comes from the Far Cry 2 story.

Is there evidence to support that the character from Far Cry 2 is the person who shot Longinus in the head?

That's what I'm thinking. They've subtly incorporated a few things from FC2 into FC4 like controlling how long you sleep, the tracker that Longinus gives you. When he said he was a warlord I immediately flashed back to my adventures in Africa. That game was all about blood/conflict diamonds and warring factions. I think it's very possible that our mercenary from FC2 was the one who squeezed that trigger, if not him then he had something to do with it. I always love to see small things like this that have connections to previous games that not everyone may catch.

Edit: He could be Doctor Leonid Gakumba. Just a thought. You did have to assassinate him, he could have survived.

    When you hover over the "conflict diamond" loot item, it mentions that it came from Bowa-Seko as well.

Longinus was apparently baptized in the waters of Goka Falls, the same place Leon was to be killed. So it is very likely that they could be the same person.

    Hey MoonzWolf, your last sentence was more of a comment, so I removed it. (I also added a link to Goka Falls :))
