A Far Cry 6 top weapons list can significantly control the game and its challenges. The correct guns can open up entirely new possibilities for players to defeat Castillo’s men and liberate Yara. Despite starting with simple weaponry, some of the best Far Cry 6 weapons can be found early on if you have a detailed list.
As a result, we’ve put up this guide on where to find the best weapons in the game, which ones you should keep an eye out for, and which ones can benefit you in specific circumstances, all divided down by type and location.
Far Cry 6 Best Weapons and Guns
We’ve listed all of the best weapons we’ve found so far in Far Cry 6, split by weapon type and location. That being said, we should acknowledge at this point that there may be some element of randomization involved, but the details are still being worked out.
If you buy a gun or find it as a random military chest or Bandidos gift, its probable location in the world elsewhere appears to offer you a new random reward.
That being stated, this can only happen if you already hold the rifle. And if you already have the gun, you don’t have to worry about where you’re going to find it. Because you have it already. Besides, two shotguns are overkill for anyone who isn’t starring in an Id Software game.
Far Cry 6 Best SMGs
The MP40 is a durable, reliable SMG that controls well from the hip and down the sights, making it an obvious first choice for anyone who battles at close-to-medium range. Its low damage is readily offset if you can maintain a constant stream of fire on the attacker.
It’s in a chest in a small, nameless restricted area of the Monjas Valley. It’s out in the open and shouldn’t be difficult to find; just make sure you’ve cleared out the Castillos around.
Far Cry 6 Best Pistols
The Autocrat is a unique pistol that can be found really early in the game, and is essentially an upgrade on any pistols you’ll have found up to that point – higher damage, better accuracy, and just better overall, rather than having any gimmick or twist.
It may be found in Fort Quito, in a basement beneath the base. It appears to be enclosed by a chain-link fence at first glance, but loop around to reveal a pallet leaning against it. Smash it with your machete to reveal a hole through which you can crouch and plunder the chest containing it.
This one-of-a-kind auto-pistol is essentially a little SMG in denial. There’s very little that can stand up to it in the early game as it sprays death ahead of it, thanks to a massive volume of drum-fed ammo and a vicious rate of fire.
The Rococo Loco is a reward for completing the first Los Bandidos mission, Benito Bang Bang. Simply start at any large Guerrilla Camp and play through to the end.
The AJM-9 is a disgustingly broken weapon that can only be obtained by individuals who purchased the Season Pass and received the Blood Dragon pack as a bonus. This cyberpunk pistol boasts great damage, accuracy, range, and comes with a silencer.
Assuming you have the necessary DLC and add-ons for Far Cry 6, it will be added to your inventory once you complete the task “The Guerilla,” which should take no more than a couple of hours.
Best Far Cry 6 rifles
The AK-M is a reliable, everyday rifle that is a natural progression from the entry-level weapons. It’s a full-auto rifle with good control that’ll be useful in mid-to-close range fighting. It’s not fancy, but it doesn’t have to be. For 900 Yaran Pesos, it may be purchased from any Juan’s Arm Dealer.
The AR-C is one of the best early to mid-level rifles available at the start of the game. With a compensator to reduce recoil, the Gut Wrencher rifle mod to increase body shot damage, your choice of ammo mod, and a competent sight, its high rate of fire can utterly melt foes. While you may be lucky enough to locate it in crates inside military-controlled zones, there are two certain ways to obtain it. The first step is to build the Guerilla Garrison in order to unlock stronger weapons for sale from Juan.
The second is to look for A Little Birdie Told Me, a treasure hunt in El Este’s Sierra Perdida region. You’ll be chasing a pelican around the mountains, finally earning the gun from a chest at the end.
Viva la Libertad!
The Libertad, a one-of-a-kind weapon modelled on the FAL rifle, has good control and precision, which is useful because of its special ability – headshots build up your Supremo at a far faster rate than ordinary kills. You can essentially get a lot more usage out of your ultimate powers by being more cautious, and considering some of those include missile attacks, that implies something.
The Viva Libertad may be found in the building at the base of the lighthouse to the west of the Quito Bay Blockade and north of the Cayo Seguro Peninsula.
Best Far Cry 6 sniper rifles
The SVD is essentially a step-up improvement for the Carbine, with superior range, damage, and rate of fire, therefore it’s worth switching it as soon as you can. You can find it in military crates in restricted regions, as with other basic rifles, but if you truly want a superior sniper and don’t willing to wait, upgrade your Guerilla Garrison until you can buy it from a dealer.
The Carbine is the sniper rifle that new players should aim for right away. It’s not the finest out there, but a few mods will bring it up to speed and make it a good early-to-mid game sniper, particularly for picking out minor foes from a safe distance. Juan’s Arms Dealer sells them for 1100 Yaran Pesos.
Best Far Cry 6 Resolver Weapons
Far Cry 6 Best shotguns
The Humidora is a very powerful asset for something found in the first sector of Isla Santuario. To acquire this weapon, travel to the south east coast and look for the Punto Este Lighthouse in Corto Cay.
It’s a shotgun that launches incendiary shells that may wreak havoc in a matter of seconds. Even if you miss your target (it has a limited range), it will put everything on fire and has a fast rate of fire, allowing you to clear some area swiftly and severely.
The M133 is a good buy for people looking for something a touch more classic. Heavy damage, solid impact, does exactly what you’d expect a shotgun to do: blow holes in anyone who gets too close for comfort.
It can be located at the Castillo Senorial Tobacco Plantation in East Costa del Mar, in the structure where Camila “La Espada” Montero first appears as part of her mission. Just check the locker area downstairs from her; there’s an open chest with the gun inside.
The SPAS-12 is perhaps the best semi-automatic shotgun you can acquire before venturing into full-auto madness. It’s precise, has a long range and superb precision (particularly with the Shotgun Shell ammo upgrade), and can one-shot practically any adversary. You can purchase it from dealers after upgrading your Garrison sufficiently, or you can get lucky and find it in the world in a military box, or you can look for the Passing the Torch treasure hunt right in the heart of Sierra Perdida in El Este.
You’ll need to find and flip some electrical switches to unlock a closed door, but once inside, the shotgun is yours. To claim it, simply pop the red chest.
Best Far Cry 6 bows
You want a pretty good bow right away? El Capirote is the perfect bow for you. It deals additional damage to animals, but its stats are already ridiculously good, and it has a longer range than the ordinary bow. Simply go to any Guerilla Camp early on and construct a Hunter’s Lodge – you’ll obtain El Capirote for free as a bonus.
Best Far Cry 6 Resolver Weapons
The Susurro (nail gun)
El Susurro is a sneaky killer’s best friend, a short-range silenced SMG where overheating isn’t an issue. If you spend a lot of time sneaking about, this is perhaps the best Resolver you can obtain, piercing any enemy without disturbing the silence. Once you reach Rank 3, you can purchase this from Juan’s Weapons for 100 Depleted Uranium.
El Muro (shield/shotgun)
El Muro is a pistol-sized shotgun that blows holes in foes and comes paired with a shield in the other hand, allowing you to engage in close-combat with significantly less personal risk. As previously stated, you can purchase 100 Depleted Uranium from Juan’s Weapons at Rank 3 for 100 Depleted Uranium.
The Varita (X-ray rifle)
La Varita is a strong semi-automatic rifle that has range, accuracy, and exceptionally high power. It can handle almost anything you throw at it. It does, however, combine with the Triador Supremo for a wonderful effect, as the two were created to be coupled together. When you activate the Triador’s effect while holding La Varita, the mystic rifle will shoot through solid things, the bullets phasing through surfaces and obstacles until they reach a target. Simply fire through cover without raising your head, or snipe foes through thick brick and watch them panic from inside a building.
Both La Varita and the Triador are available as rewards for locating all of the Far Cry 6 Triada Blessings Relics. If you haven’t already, go to the above-mentioned location and follow the guide we’ve linked you for a full tour.
