hello everyone.. i just got farcry yesterday and started it ..
i reached the 5th level which is research..
all this without ever using much of the things that i read u can do.. like throwing rocks and sprinting.. i was wondering if any1 has some good tips for me?
simple things? like how to run properly? how to use rocks efficiently.. and so on
also im playing the campaign on Challenge mode.. and ive reached the research stage ( 5th one i think )..
and i kinda find it imposble to do anything..
there are like 20 people trying to kil me and if i kill one they all alarm and run after me.
anyway.. thanks in advance..
much appreciated..plus i read CptLong's thread about single player tactics and so on..
and in the 1st post he made he talked about Devmode .. whats that?
Devmode could be called "cheat mode" really.
If your playing "challenge" you probably don't need it. I my opinion you'll just be cheating yourself out of a great game.
If you've read the "single" player thread I don't have much to add.
well.. how to throw rocks for starters?
its not in the controls.. :S anyone?
All of the things you can throw can be thrown with the "G" key. To cycle through frag grenades, flashbangs, smoke and rocks, hit the "H" key. An icon for the item will appear in the lower right part of your screen.
Rocks are only good if you are hidden and the mercs do not know where you are. If they do not see the rock in the air, they will hear it land and investigate the area where it landed, not where it came from. This can be effective to set up ambushes. I find them especially useful indoors. Mercs will enter a door facing away from you and bang, you have them in the back.
A rock is a grenade ... you can cycle thru choices of types of
grenades ( H key ), and then toss that choice ( G key ). In the
Research level, from where you first spawn, go up on top of that
low hill, and Binoc the far shores until you have spotted most
of the Mercs, and can track them on your radar. Then go across
the small stream and go back a ways under the overhanging rocks,
and just beyond that, to your left, hide-crouch in a low bush ..
there's about 3 or 4 just by the wall .. go up about 2 bushes
and crouch with the M4 ready. Toss rocks down the trail, and
get a couple of Mercs there to come at you. They won't see
you. Next, toss rocks into the water ( aim up )and get more
Mercs coming after you. None of them will see you, and you
can get more than half of them that way .. in a short time.
Keep tossing rocks around the place ( also, see if you can
hit that stupid bird with a rock .. I got him once ). When no
more Mercs will come at you, walk back along the trail, and
look for Mercs in the distance. Pop off a shot, but then sprint
back to the original bush, and wait for them to come around.
You get maybe 3 more this way .. leaving maybe 3 who never
move far from their spots. If you have the sniper rifle, you
can get them, and still conserve that ammo .. you will need
it later. Or, you can sneak from bush to bush and get closer,
and again toss rocks to lure them out, or just get closer
and fire into the bushes where they are. I do that to save
sniper ammo. Then go up to the cabin and get a keycard,
and an autosav. Go down to the front beach, and get more
sniper ammo and M4 ammo there. Next the fun begins in the
cave. Not easy. There's a run-and-gun way, but you have to
be quick. From where the lights go out .. run in, and go
right to entrance of another path. Stop and lean .. get Merc
with flashlight. Run in, and stop-lean, and get Merc on
stairs .. or, if he is not there .. keep going ( left )
and get 3 Mercs in room to right .. one at a time as you
come around wall. Go in and turn on light, and quickly
come out same way .. get Autosav. Now, about 6 Mercs are
going to come at you from both sides. Choose a side
and run towards it with the 50 shot SMG. Get them as
them come around the path, and if they stop coming, that
means they are coming behind you. Reverse, and be ready
with the 50 shot. When the area is clear .. be careful ..
go back outside, and get health, ammo, whatever you
can find .. and come back in and take elevator up to
aaaah the rock is the funny looking grenade that doesnt blow up ey aahaaa.. ok ok o ok thnx
and about the research thing, i finished it..
i read some nice things about shooting while ur in prone position so i managed to snipe all of themwith my sniper and m4..
anyway.. about the dam monsters what u call them..
is there a easy way to kill them?
it takes like 20 shots for them 2 die..
Aim for the head. The little ones die easily from a grenade.
