Thou Shall Not Have False Idols
Your companions in Far Cry 5 are true saints. You can team up with one AI-controlled Gun For Hire. First, there’s Nick Rye, who strafes any ground targets you designate with the D-pad in his family’s cropduster. Carbine-packing Grace Armstrong, meanwhile, prefers to keep her distance in a fight. You can direct her to rooftops or water towers to provide sniper support from high areas. You can even join forces with a fellow player through open-world co-op and bring Eden’s Gate to its knees. Last, and best, is your faithful dog Boomer, a mangy but lovable blue heeler who can savage enemies, steal their weapons, and even scare off wolves by growling. If there’s one sin we’re willing to commit, it’s worshipping a dog.
