4. Side Quests & Prepper Stashes
This one’s a given, but the people of Hope County require your assistance with everything between the mundane and ridiculous. Whether that includes sabotaging a peggie convoy or putting down a bliss-induced moose, there’s plenty to do around town. Additionally, seek Prepper Stashes as soon as they’re available. Between two stashes alone I’ve received a gussied up truck, a rare weapon skin, and loads of cash. Even if Prepper Stashes lack unique rewards, you’ll never leave them empty-handed. In short, assist your neighbors and seek that glorious loot.
5. Equip Your Easter Egg Goggles
Perhaps you’re a lady or gentleman of culture and are capable of recognizing easter eggs that surround you in all directions. I for one regularly fail to spot the more nuanced tips of the hat around Hope County, but there’s a glaringly obvious egg to encounter within the first ten minutes of the game. On Dutch’s Island, you’ll more than likely stumble upon none other than Henry’s lookout tower from Campo Santo’s Firewatch. Well, a tower belonging to an individual who coincidently shares the same name as the indie title’s protagonist. Point being, if there’s an easter egg this overt in the opening minutes of the game, Lord only knows what else is out there. Whether it be previous Far Cry callbacks or additional game references, there’s bound to be plenty to discover; so keep an eye out!
