Far Cry 4 Animal Guide

Animal Guide

Just like its predecessor, Far Cry 4 allows players to hunt local wildlife. It can be a fun and challenging activity, but it also provides useful animal hides that players can then craft into important items such as holsters and wallets. (A full list of crafting recipes can be found in our Crafting Guide)
