The game kicks off with an on-rails helicopter sequence, very fitting of the
80s. Just kill all the enemies and blow up as many helicopters and explosive
tanks as you can. When that’s finished, you’ll land and have to go through a
series of basic tutorial instructions. Complete the actions as they are said
on the screen, and then you can finally move forward.
Notice the objective marker pointing at the hanging wires off the cliffside.
Hanging wires basically replace vines from the core Far Cry 3 game. Hold in
the left stick to get a running start and then leap across the gap. Crouch and
go through the small cave system with the purple lights inside.
Silently take out the guard with a melee attack by pushing in the right stick.
Now push “up” on the d-pad to use your Cyber Eye. Use it to tag the enemies
walking around. There’s one enemy standing by the boulders nearby, and three
over by a campfire not too far from you. Throw your D20 to distract the closest
guard, then run up and kill him quietly.
Now turn your attention to the other three guards. Throw the D20 over their
head to get them all looking the other way. Kill the first one, and then tilt
the left analog stick in the direction of the next guard to start a chain kill.
Tilt it again in the direction of the third guard to kill him as well.
Climb up the cliff and at the front of the base, a bunch of tutorial windows
will flood the screen. They basically go through all the minor details of the
game. If you’re playing this, I assume you’ve already been through Far Cry 3,
plus there’s the tutorials right there in-game, so I’m not going to waste a
whole lot of time retreading that territory.
Kill the guard in the subsequent hallway in whichever manner that you wish. I
personally threw a grenade in there, but if you want to remain stealthy, then
do so by all means. Remember to loot dead bodies for supplies as you move
across the level.
Your goal right now is to clear the area of enemies. The most entertaining
way of doing it is going through guns-blazing. Stay behind cover and go for
headshots as much as possible. You’ll encounter a “heavy” with a gatling gun
that he’s carrying around, so shoot him from a distance and lob grenades his
way as well.
In the first open area, kill the nearest enemies, and then hang a right. Kill
the enemy operating the turret on the vehicle, and climb up on the crates.
This will give you a fantastic view of the battleground. Cook a grenade and
throw it at one of the vehicles to cause a huge explosion that should get rid
of most of the enemies.
Kill the stragglers and then climb the ladders in the center hangar. There will
be a couple of enemies still left to kill from up here. Get rid of them and
then follow the new objective marker to a zipline point. Ride the zipline down
to the door and you’ll be reunited with Spider.
Follow Spider throughout the complex, protecting him from enemies. After he
hacks into the first door, you’ll be taught how to jump on enemies from above
and simultaneously perform an execution. Basically, you just jump on them and
it all does it automatically. Use the catwalk to reach pipes that will be
right above a nearby enemy, and then do this just to get it out of the way.
A new enemy type will be in here. These guys crazily chuck Molotov cocktails at
you, so take them out before they can do damage. Go around the room and kill
everyone, and then you can follow Spider to the next door. In my game, Spider
glitched and refused to go to the keypad. I solved this by throwing a grenade
at his feet, which caused him to run toward the door.
Run to the control panel and as Spider goes to work, you have to protect him.
The consoles make great cover. Just hang tight and kill the enemies as they
funnel into the room. Following a cut-scene, make a mad dash to the elevator.
Take a right and get to higher ground to bypass most of the enemies. Throw a
couple of grenades at the heavies, and then jump down to the center area and
get to the elevator.
Upon regaining control, you won’t have any of your weapons or supplies, and
there are Blood Dragons everywhere. Crouch and move slowly through the field
to get by them. Keep an eye for glowing dead bodies on the ground to harvest
Chuck the heart through the green forcefield to get the Blood Dragon to kill
all the enemies there. When that’s done, you can loot the building to find the
crossbow. Grab it, and then move outside the door. There are numerous options
to go about taking over this next Garrison. I recommend testing out your new
bow and trying to go the stealth route. Alternatively, you could simply chuck
more hearts into the Garrison to make the Blood Dragon do most of the work.
If there is a Blood Dragon in there when all the other enemies have been
defeated, you’ll have to get rid of it either by killing it or making it leave
the Garrison by tossing hearts outside of the area. Once the Garrison is
overtaken, go to the Adventure Board as instructed.
Now go save the nerd. This will usually be a side-quest for the rest of the
game, but it just wants to teach you how side-quests go work. Go to the
location of the nerd, and save him from the enemies. When that’s done, return
to the Garrison and go to the vending machine. Buy a silencer for the pistol as
the game instructs you to do, showing that once you complete side quests you
unlock attachments and the like for your weapons.
Go speak with Darling. Now head to the dam. If you want your objective marker
to point to it, you’ll have to manually make it your objective by going to your
map. It’s the caution sign icon. You’ll probably want to take a jeep to the
This dam part of the mission is pretty long, but basically, you will go to a
cave and get C4000. Then you will have to fight your way to the side of the
dam and place the explosives on the designated areas. Retreat up the cliffside
and try to detonate the bombs. You’ll fail to do much damage, so head inside
the dam proper.
You’ll have to deal with new threats, such as enemies with flamethrowers and
cyborg dogs. The trick to dealing with the flamethrower enemies is to
constantly back up so you can avoid being caught on fire and constantly shoot
at them. The dogs can be killed with two knife strikes. Also, while traveling
around the world of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, it’s a good idea to kill any
animals that you see (probably have seen ostriches and pigs at least by this
point, plus the dogs and Blood Dragons) as one of the goals in the game is to
kill every animal type available.
Eventually, you will fight your way to an engineer. Protect him and escort
him to the nuclear device powering the dam. Jump into the water and swim to the
three different locks. Approach them and interact with them to release them.
There will be sharks down here, but don’t worry about them. You can swim very
fast, so it’s not hard to escape from them.
Return to the engineer and grab the large machine gun off the wall. Step outside
the door and use it to kill the enemies that will drive by on the speedboat,
and then hold your position and continue to kill the enemies as they appear.
Just let them come to you. When the shield is down, go punch the device to
complete the mission.
Your next objective will surrounded by a lot of red area on the map, so I
recommend overtaking a couple of Garrisons and upgrading your weapons before
proceeding. Make sure you have full ammo before going into this mission as
well, because you’re definitely going to need it.
When ready, make your way to the facility in which this next mission takes
place. Your goal will be to sabotage a few devices that they are putting on
the Blood Dragons to control them. Either silently make your way through the
base or kill everyone in sight, it doesn’t matter to me. There will be numerous
Heavies, so use C4000 or your other powerful guns to take them out easier.
There will be a button next to each of the Blood Dragon helmets. Press the
buttons to destroy them. You’ll also come across a caged Blood Dragon, and you
can kill it by pressing the button in front of its cage, which will in turn
cause it to blow up.
After that’s taken care of, make your way to the next area. You’ll find a
button that you have to press again, and this will open up the floor. Drop down
and take out the enemies. You’ll come across a flamethrower, so grab it, and
then continue to the room with the eggs.
There are three egg patches, and two Blood Dragons roaming around this area.
Run around the nests in a circle while constantly shooting the flamethrower to
destroy them all. You can even trick the Blood Dragons into crushing their own
eggs if you sprint around fast enough.
Small purple tunnel areas are dotted all around here, and these are too narrow
for the Blood Dragons to get through. If you need a quick escape, keep those in
mind. Just look for the purple goo. Once all three of the nests have been
destroyed, make your way to the elevator, press the button, and hang tight.
A Blood Dragon will show up, and you have to survive the encounter with it long
enough so that the elevator can arrive. If you want to fight it, go ahead, but
otherwise you can just hide behind the crate right in front of you and the
Blood Dragon may never even go into combat mode.
Initially, I encountered a glitch at this part that caused the jeep that comes
down with the elevator to be floating in air. If this happens, you will have
no choice but to return to the last checkpoint, either by re-loading or dying
on purpose. If the jeep is on the ground and in the center of the elevator as
it is supposed to be, get control of the turret and smart firing at the Blood
Dragon as the elevator rises.
Keep shooting at it until it can’t be seen. Then turn your attention to the
enemies that are in this area as well. You can shoot the explosive tanks here
to take out multiple enemies with a single blast. At the top of the elevator,
drive through the halls and get out before the timer hits zero to complete the
Go to the glider and then fly it through the objective markers. If you crash,
don’t worry about it, because you can easily swim or use a jet-ski to reach the
base. Once there, fight your way inside. This base is much like previous ones
that you’ve encountered, so just use the skills you’ve learned in the previous
missions to blow through it. You will first drop down a shaft, and then have to
climb out of it before proceeding.
Vending machines are plentiful in this mission, so don’t worry too much about
wasting ammo. A new element added to this mission are the cases of crazy
scientists that you can free and watch them attack the other enemies, kind of
like releasing caged animals in the Garrisons and such. You can choose to do
this or not, it doesn’t matter.
You will eventually reach a door that you can’t open. Hold your ground. Use
the gatling gun if you have ammo. Once the timer runs out, the door will open.
Go through and step on the pad to be launched through the ceiling and landing
outside with multiple scientists and a couple of Blood Dragons.
This part is a huge pain. There’s nowhere to hide from the Blood Dragons, but
there are two little bases that have plenty of ammo and explosives to resupply
yourself. Plus, there are two medical kits here that you can use to fully
replenish your health. Use explosives on the Blood Dragons. C4000 is
particularly effective, but cooking and tossing grenades at them as you run
away is not a bad idea either.
Once the first Blood Dragon is dead, you can probably use regular guns against
the other one and do a good job. Enemy soldiers will be inserted into the
fighting eventually as well, but the Blood Dragon will take them out for you,
for the most part.
Once the two Blood Dragons are dead, a door opens up. A few dogs come out of it
as well as a flamethrower guy. Kill them all and then run through and go up the
stairs to finish the mission.
Go to the temple. Don’t go through the portal unless you’re ready to complete
the next two missions. Mission 6 is a series of three rooms in which you have
to call hordes of the “Running Dead”, which are running zombies equipped with
knives and firearms. The first room will have you using a pistol against these
guys, and you can only kill them with headshots. You will go through a lot of
ammo, but the game generously rewards you with infinite ammo for this part.
Once that first round is done, you will go through to the next round and be
given a shotgun. You will want to run around a lot more during this round
because the zombies will swarm you and there are way more of them. Plus, there
will be some with guns. The third round you will have a sniper rifle that
fires explosive rounds.
At the end of this one, the gate to the final weapon will open up. A bunch of
the Running Dead will come sprinting down at you. You can try to jump over
them, but sometimes this will make you perform an assassinatino, which can
prove costly. It’s better to get a distance between you and them and then
start pelting them with the sniper rifle.
You’ll then be able to get the gatling gun. Use it to fight your way up the
stairs to the Killstar. Pick up the Killstar to proceed on to the final mission
of the game.
Walk forward. If you explore the building to the left, you will find a chest
that you can loot, plus a useless mounted gun. Loot that place and then
approach the gate. Shoot the lock on the gate with the Killstar to open it.
Then use the Killstar to kill everyone on the other side, but keep an eye on
your health meter, because the Killstar will drain your health in order to
Then just push forward, killing everything in sight (preferrably with a
different weapon now), and then you will find yourself face to face with a
ridable Blood Dragon. This is an on-rails sequence in which you can just blow
the hell out of everything. And then the game concludes. Ta-da.
