Far Cry 6 places you in the fictional country of Yara, under control by the ruthless dictator Antón Castillo. You are Dani Rojas, wishing for escape to America but instead finding themselves part of the head of the spear in a bloody revolution.
If you've played any of the mainline Far Cry games since 3, you'll really find very little new here in terms of gameplay and trophies. It is very much like Far Cry 5 where you have three different storylines in different areas to complete before unlocking the finale of the game, and these can be done in any order. Special Operations also return from New Dawn, though what is required for the platinum won't cause you any issues. There is a simple missable trophy to look out for, but otherwise you're in for a fun and easy platinum if you're a fan of the Far Cry series or shooters in general.
As noted in the overview, there are six trophies requiring an online connection outside of the platinum. Five of these simply require an online connection for the Special Operations and Insurgency Leaders but can be done solo, but there is one quick trophy that will require a co-op partner. You can also play the whole game in co-op if you wish. If you need a co-op partner, see the thread here.
Finally, a quick note on the time to platinum mentioned in the overview. The two week wait period is linked to the new Insurgency feature unlocked after completion of the story. Every real-life week, a region of the map will have its targets taken back over and you must take them back and kill the insurgent leader. You have to do this three times for the trophy, so you must play the game over three separate weeks after completing the story for platinum.
Step 1: Complete the story ensuring you get the missable trophy.
Feel free to start the game on any difficulty and play through at your own leisure, completing the story missions in any order you choose. The missable trophy is simple, but you must get it before the end of the game. Once you obtain a boat, drive to the outskirts of the map in order to get Hidden In Plain Sight , the sole missable trophy in the game.
As you traverse the map, keep an eye on your minimap for crates which contain weapons, gear and supplies as this can cut down on time later. You should also approach any exclamation points on your minimap and interact with the person or note to get useful items and targets marked on your map, many of which are needed for trophies. You can do these things as you get them or save them for later, it's up to you, though taking any FND targets will be helpful for traversel. You'll also want to build and upgrade camp facilities as you get the materials as these offer various things such as animal/fish maps, hideouts you can fast travel to and better gear. I'd also suggest completing the Triada Blessing side quest (Undying Tradition ) and obtaining all supremos when you can (Backpacking ) to maximise your ass-kicking potential.
There's a few trophies related to the FND bases that you might want to get on your first run throughs of them. If you complete them all without getting every related trophy there is the insurgency feature post-game that will allow you to replay some of them, but you'll be making things a little harder on yourself. You'll want to complete one base without being detected for Ninjerilla , complete one with a co-op partner for Co-Dependent , use a Security Control center at one for Didn't See That Coming! , and once you have upgraded your Bandidos Barracks to level 3, kill an enemy with a sabotaged alarm for Outdated Tech . You will also want to look out for the FND resource vehicles as they have no set spawn, and you need to retrieve three of these for Finders Keepers!
Trophies you will obtain in this step include (but are not limited to):
- Yo Soy Dani Rojas
- Hidden In Plain Sight (Missable)
- Cutting Foreign Ties
- Montero Justicia
- Voz del Pueblo
- Viva La Revolución
- Finders Keepers!
- Check It Out
- Friendly Skies
- Undying Tradition
- Hogar Dulce Hogar
- Heated Conflict
- Outdated Tech
- Not So Special
- Didn't See That Coming!
- Glorious Leader
Now you've completed the game, you'll have the best opportunity to grab the collectibles (USB Sticks, Roosters, Cryptograma Chests and Unique Weapons) you didn't already come across on your travels. There are also various activities you will need to complete for trophies if you didn't do them already, so see the guide below for details on these.
There are also a few combat related trophies that you still may need. There are plenty of enemies still lurking around to help you get these, or you can utilise the now-unlocked insurgency feature that will allow you to recapture FND Targets for areas with a higher concentration of enemies to kill. And speaking of insurgency, you'll have to complete this three times in separate real life weeks to obtain the platinum, so ensure that you get this done for the first time before the week rolls over to minimise your waiting time.
Trophies you will obtain in this step (if you didn't get them already) include:
- It's Raining Treasure!
- Top of the Pecking Order
- Speed Racer
- Beginner's Luck
- Alpha Guerrilla
- Road Rage
- Armed to the Teeth
- Fry Cry
- That's My Jam
- That's Puzzling
- Car Cry
- Loyal Army
- Strutting His Stuff
- Secret Weapon
- Jawson Brody
- Not So Tough
- Ultimate Predator
- Slip Sliding Away
- Hit 'n Run
- Death From Above
- Toxic Influence
- Do It Yourself
- Furiously Fast
First off, know that you can complete these trophies at any point after unlocking your first faction base. Special Operations take you outside of the main map to find and retrieve a dangerous device. There are four trophies in the base list tied to this mode, none of which are very tricky. You must complete any special operation, complete one without letting the overheat bar go over 50%, unlock a special chest and rescue 30 informants. See the guide for more information on these. The Special Operations also have free DLC trophies that require you to complete the first five Operations on Mastery 3, but these will be covered separately and aren't required for platinum.
Trophies you will obtain in this step include:
Now all that should be left is killing the final two Insurgency Leaders for the platinum. As mentioned before, you can only do one of these each real week so depending on how quickly you did the rest of the list after completing the game you may have to wait up to two weeks to finish up. And of course, now is a good time to grab anything else you may have remaining. Congrats if you made it this far!
