Flare Gun • Far Cry 2
The desiccated African landscape of Far Cry 2 is not just a sandbox of improvisational gunplay; it’s a tinderbox, too, where one stray spark can trigger a fiery apocalypse. Now, often this happens by accident, which is of course all part of the game’s core appeal. But the flare gun is a vital tool for the more cunning mercenary, enabling players to start a blaze where and when they want it, and from distance. Smoke the enemies out of hiding then pick them off with the bolt action rifle.
