Far Cry 3 Guide: Radio Towers & Free Weapons Guide

Far Cry 3 Guide: Radio Towers & Free Weapons Guide
One of the many side quests and sub-objectives available in Far Cry 3 are the Radio Towers. This Far Cry 3 Guide: Radio Towers & Free Weapons Guide will tell you what weapons you unlock as you explore each Radio Tower to unlock the map in the nearby area.

Radio Towers reward you with free weapons and items and they also unlock nearby Supply Drop missions. You’re rewarded with free weapons based on the amount of Radio Towers you’ve unlocked, not by the specific Radio Tower itself. This means that if you want a specific weapon, you can just go for the quickest/easiest route to get there, without having to do a specific tower the other side of the map. The below weapons have been placed into categories along with how many Radio Towers you need to get them for free.

    Dude this isn’t a Radio Tower guide at all, stop keyword squatting ****.

      Sorry Darth, what were you expecting? The Radio Towers are all put on the map for you and none of them are difficult to get up. What other areas of Radio Towers could you guide other than what it unlocks?

      P.S Keyword Squatting isn’t really the correct accusation here as there’s plenty of good content that took a number of hours to developer.

    I don’t ever post comments but after reading the negative comment earlier, I had to. Captain Camper, thanks for this very informative post. It is very much appreciated and it is helping me out tremendously. I have it bookmarked.

    The 6P9 and STG-90 are free after the first radio tower unlock. Though technically that’s done in the “tutorial” phase of the game, it should probably still be noted.
