Far Cry 4 Review – A Deranged Playground Of Brutality & Freedom

A deranged playground of brutality and freedom that builds perfectly on the solid foundations set by its predecessor. A worthy entry to the franchise and a must buy for any open-world gamers



There’s a couple of things to remember that will greatly aid your hunting efforts:

  • Killing an animal with explosive or fire damage will not yield a pristine skin. It will be damaged and useless. However, this only applies if the final blow on the animal was explosive or fire based. For example: You can hit a rhino with some grenades, as long as the final hit is a knife or bullet
  • Killing an animal with a knife, throwing knife or arrow will yield twice the amount of hides
  • For aggressive animals, such as Bengal Tigers, find a location that spawns the animal and take a Mounted Gun Truck with you. Then simply use Bait to lure an animal out. It usually attracts the animal from that particular area.

You are only able to see the requirements for the next stage of upgrades, you cannot see all the requirements past that. Here is a list of all the items you will need to max each item in the crafting tree.

  • Far-Cry-4-Max-Crafting-Guide-Step-1.jpg

Above is a selection of slides showing the rough area you will be using. Notes: Remember to check water whenever you pass by a water source for a large fish. Remember to use bait as soon as you reach the general vicinity of animal spawns to easily attract the skins you need.

  • Step 1:You don’t have much room at the start so you want to improve your loot bag first. Head East of Banapur and collect 5x Sambar skins. Craft your next loot bag
  • Step 2: Travel further East. If you own the Khilana Bazaar Outpost there will always be 2-3 Pigs spawned nearby. Simple Fast Travel twice to same location and gather 3x Pig skins.
  • Step 3: Head South West and collect 6x Rhino skins. You can also find the 4x Demon Fish Skins here in the lake (Many thanks xScottux)
  • Step 4: Head North West gather 4 Bharal skins
  • Step 5: North for 4x Wild Boar skins and then East for 5x Dhole skins
  • Step 6: East again for 3x Assasm Macaque skins and 7x Malayan Tapir skins

  • Step 12: Fly North East over the river and collect 5x Yak skins
  • Step 13: North for 8x Bear skins
  • Step 14: From this point on it’s just finding Snow Leopards. They are not common until North East Kyrat. Snow Leopards can be seen during a campaign mission on the Himalays. Will update once I have more information
  • Step 15: Congratulations! You’ve maxed normal crafting. Now all you need is to attack the correct Outposts and complete the Kyrat Fashion Show quests for rare skins.

For Demon Fish- Just South-East of Banapur (The first village you come to in the game) there is a huge lake with the Army Supply Flight (It’s on the lake floor) unknown location question mark in the middle. This lake is filled with them =)

  • Got a couple more to craft and then I’ll add a section that features all the materials combined.

    • Updated with a full list of the normal materials 😀

  • Alistair

    I cant for the life of my find any pigs. Ive searched lower kyrat for at least 2 hours and nada!!

    • I’ll jump in game now and try to find a specific location for you 😀

    • Scorpio Maurus

      They are seem to be exclusively found on small farms, most farms (or small households) have pigs roaming the property.

    • Here ya go 😀 I’m working on a big map featuring all animals. Hope to have it up asap.

      This is North of Banapur, just over the small mountainous area.

      • Alistair

        wicked!

  • Wheres a yak at?

    • Sorry for the delay buddy! I missed this. Probably a bit late now but image attached 🙂

  • xscottusx .

    For Demon Fish- Just South-East of Banapur (The first village you come to in the game) there is a huge lake with the Army Supply Flight (It’s on the lake floor) unknown location question mark in the middle. This lake is filled with them =)

  • Liquidacid

    your list of total materials only says x3 honey badger skins but you need 7… 3 for holsters and 4 for arrow quiver

  • Luca Puppini

    i can’t find any yak at all!! or honey badger 🙁 pleeeaaaseee help!

  • Marius Budu

    Can someone PLEASE tell me how to craft a hunting syringe and USE IT on PC? Seriously, the game design on that aspect is a total fail…

    • Liquidacid

      syringes get their own radial menu… on the PC you press Tab or you can also get to it by holding down q,1,2,3,4 to access the weapon radial menu then press the RMB to change over to the syringe one

      hold down tab and move the mouse so the syringe you want is highlighted and it will let you craft them… you can use a syringe by holding tab and moving the mouse to highlight the one you want and releasing tab (same as changing a weapon with the weapon radial menu)

  • Michael Herrling

    Not my own discovery but it was good advice so I decided to print it here. If you are seeking snow leopards prior to heading to the north go to the ‘Sleeping Saints’ site (X: 452.8, Y: 298.3). Find a good spot where you can fire on (I used arrows for the double skins), and then toss bait. The area isn’t exclusive to snow leopards (I wound up with a wolf, a dhole, and a clouded leopard) but it will consistently spawn them with bait. If you do not get the snow leopard kill the animal that spawned and simply collect the bait.

  • paltkoma

    Why not take the effort and mark the spots on the map?

  • Kevin Powell

    Can anyone explain how I can make more explosive and fire arrows on PS4? this is kind of driving me insane

    • Liquidacid

      you can’t craft special arrows this time around… you have to unlock the “trade agreement” skill (in the elephant tree) and buy them from the shop or a weapon cabinet

  • Herris

    Thanks for the guide! But i don’t know how far to go in the direction you’re telling me to go! When you tell someone to go southeast for example, you need to tell them how far, or they won’t find what they’re looking for!

    Step 9: Head South East and collect 4x Clouded Leopard skins

    Step 10: South East again for 7x Bengal Tiger skins

    Step 11: Short distance East for 6x Tibetan Wolf skins and then North West for 3x Honey Badger skins (Honey Badgers spawn during night)

    I have no idea where to look! The game has coordinates in it, use them next time mate 🙂 Found it all now, but i had to use other guides. Hope you will think of this next time 🙂 Otherwise good job!

    Edit: BTW i found alot of honey badgers at night just 100-200 meters north of the starter village.

  • Mitch Rikard

    Bait can be used to collect the snow leopard skins before talking to Sabal in the area surrounding the Prologue Bell Tower. once you climb up the rope that gets tossed down to you by the Golden Path member, you can use bait to farm the snow leopard skins around the tower…. the golden path will even help you shoot them. Skinning the dead leopards will also provide additional bait to farm with.

    • Mitch Rikard

      make sure not to let them kill Sabal…. the others’ survival is optional…

  • Mitch Rikard

    All Predators can be farmed endlessly with bait (only works when not using co-op, in my experience). simply go to the predator’s icon on the map and find a nearby vantage point with accompanying killing field. I, personally, slaughter 25-50 Bengal Tigers with a bow or cross at the following coordinates: 460,375. with each tiger skin valued at 7,000 rupees, and each tiger providing 2 skins (using arrows or bolts), every 25 tigers provides 350,000 rupees. don’t forget to collect your used arrows and bolts from the corpses…. additional info: Bengal tigers take 3 arrows from a recurve bow and 4 bolts from the auto-cross. the auto cross is far faster and easily the most viable weapon for farming tigers…. Also corpses will pile on top of one another blocking your shots if you try to bait the exact same spot over and over.

  • Jeremie Edwards

    I know that on the south edge of the lake (on the elevated path around the lake) thee is a honey badger that re-spawns every time you fast travel to Banapur. It’s easy pickins especially if you are a good shot from across the plank bridge. I do recommend using your camera to mark it since it has a tendency to fall off the path. Sorry for the crude pic, but its all I had on short notice. The red are marks where the target is, the green line is the path.

  • Ouch That Hurts

    I’ve found that the easiest man-portable weapon for killing a rhino is the PKM light machine gun. The special version may be unlocked when you start, depending on what package you bought, but you can unlock the standard version pretty quickly too (before opening Khilana Bazzar Outpost) and that one will work just fine, too. 30-33 rounds aimed mostly at the head will take one down no problem, and this happens quickly enough that he wont’ have time to charge.
