Do you know how to pass the time in Far Cry 5? We do!

Far Cry 5 has been out for almost two weeks a now, and if you haven’t played it yet, what are you doing with your life? Easily one of the best games of the year. Stunning visuals, fantastic story and a soundtrack that made me feel emotions again.

While shooting crazed cultists is all well and good – and you know, the whole premise of the game, there are plenty of other things you can get done.

So if you want to take a break from story progression or just relax after a tough day at work, here are five great ways to pass the time in Far Cry 5.

1. Fishing

Quite possibly the best thing you can do other than the story. Fishing is just so much fun and is actually quite in depth but not so hard that you won’t have fun.

In fact, catching everything from sturgeon, salmon and golden trout is really worthwhile. You can sell these fishing for around $100 a piece, and you can spend that sweet extra cash on buying weapons and clothes.

There are plenty of fishing spots across the huge open world map – with some secret spots you will either need to stumble across or find a magazine to locate it on your map.

As ways how to pass the time in Far Cry 5 go, fishing is just absolutely fantastic fun.

2. Hunting

Another great way to make some money is through selling animals skins, and this is where the big bucks are made.

Most of the time, your encounters with bears, cougars and wolves will be accidental; but if you don’t kill them, they’ll kill you.

Possibly the most fun you can have is hunting elk and deer with a bow and arrow. It certainly makes you feel like the most rugged redneck around and it’s quite satisfying stalking an elk through the forest before getting the kill.

There’s no room for ethics is Hope County, Montana. However, be sure to take your shots carefully otherwise you’ll notify all those damn cult members nearby.


3. Stunts

5 Esport titles you still have time to become a pro at

Clutch Nixon, the greatest SOB that ever lived! Who is Clutch? Well, he is basically the redneck Evil Knievel, and you can recreate his best stunts.

From flying a seaplane and doing stunts over a lake to driving a monster truck on fire through even more fire!

You will need to get a wingsuit and parachute for some of the events but wingsuits are the best fun.

4. Skydiving

Remember when I said that wingsuits are the best fun? Well, I was lying! As long as you have the parachute or wingsuit perk, you can take a plane up as high as possible before jumping out and gracefully gliding down to earth.

If you’re lucky, you might land near some cultists, and you can pop them as you’re gliding back down with your pistol.

5. Explore the wilderness

Whether you do it by foot or by one of the many, many vehicles available, exploring the map is just great.

The whole point of this game is to make your own fun. Stumbling across Eden’s Gate outposts, members and god knows what else is really enjoyable.

Rushing through the vast forests and woodlands in camo with a silenced sniper rifle, and picking off anyone and anything, is my way to enjoy the countryside.

Then again, a huge monster truck with a massive M60 on the back and mowing down fools is just as great.

If you are wondering how to pass the time in Far Cry 5, just go for a nice drive around Hope County and let the madness come to you.
