Previous Far Cry games have always sported a diverse roster of weapons, and Far Cry 5 is no different. With so many options available, you’re probably asking which weapons are worth purchasing. To help you out, we’ve highlighted in the video above nine weapons that we believe to be some of the best in the game.
It’s also worth noting that many of the weapons you see in the video above are Prestige Weapons, which are higher-priced special skinned versions of normal weapons you can purchase with in-game money or real money. If you’d prefer, you can purchase a standard non-skinned equivalent of the same weapon in the shop for cheaper and without the fancier attachments. Regardless of which version of each weapon you choose to get, we stand by their quality and functionality.
The best weapons in Far Cry 5 include the AR-CL semi-automatic rifle, the SA50 sniper rifle, and the M-79 grenade launcher. Each has their own special uses and functionality. Though, what you choose from our recommendations is also going to depend on your playstyle. After all, someone who specializes in stealth may not find it useful to use the RAT4 rocket launcher. Refer to the video above, as we also offer some tips on how to best use each weapon and which playstyle they’re more suited to.
Aside from the ones we mentioned above, the other best weapons in Far Cry 5 include:
- SPAS-12 “Flameout”
- M60 LMG + M249 LMG
- .44 Magnum “Steel and Ivory”
- The Magnopulser
