Far Cry® 5 achievement guide & roadmap


A pretty sane set of achievements in this latest installment in the Far Cry franchise. A good few fun objectives, no crazy collectibles or 100% completion achievements - an premature view puts this at likely 100% in 30ish hours of play.

None are missable, any unfinished ones you can grind for after the story finishes. An easy 100%...


Single and multi-player

No missable achievements (plus 22 unknown)

Guide 42% complete - please help finish it
