So now that I've finally finished DA:I, I'm delving into my backlog of games.

First up is Far Cry 5. I'm having a blast so far but I'm really struggling with the bow.

I've played a lot of hunting games and I just don't understand the sights on the bow, they don't function like any other game I've ever played and there's no explanation of the pin distances. I can't hit the broad side of a barn and stealth is one of my favorite things about Far Cry.

Any tips?

I use pretty much every weapon (except SMG's, they chew through too much ammo) and have load outs depending on what I'm doing.

For taking over areas I know there will be cultists, I usually carry a sniper rifle as my main weapon, a shotgun for up close stopping power, and an automatic pistol (like a Skorp) to make noise if I need it.

Last night, I was in a construction yard surrounded by like 8 guys with air support. I'm in the 2nd zone but don't have any weapons that can reliably take out a plane so those fighter planes are the bane of my existence right now. Just as I thought I could get the upper hand, not one but TWO trucks with mounted heavy guns showed up and now they have like 14 guys, two heavies, AND the plane.

There was a shack there with a ramp leading up to a door and the door wasn't blocked. I knew if I could get inside, I'd be protected on 3 sides from the heavy guns and the airplane, so in I went. There was some crates at the back to hide behind and then it hit me.

I'd run to the door, spray some pistol fire to get their attention and then toss a proximity charge at the bottom of the ramp.

It only took 3 charges and 3/4 of the dudes were dead. :-)

I took out the rest with the shotgun and then took over a heavy and took out the plane.

Having your own vehicle with a mounted .50 cal makes everything they can throw at you trivial. :-)

I don't think this is a spoiler but just in case...

Spoiler!

I have the Death Wish but I'll be honest:

1) I'm trying to avoid making the game ridiculously easy. I like a challenge. I finished Far Cry Primal on the hardest difficulty. This game is pretty tough at times even on normal but I like it that way.

2) I don't generally use vehicles / mounts in open world games. I'm terrible OCD and I prefer to explore on foot because I'm afraid I might miss something. I always seem to find out of the way loot and stuff when I'm just walking around, even though it takes longer.

I mean, if you want an example or two of how crazy OCD I am, I don't buy a new weapon until I've bought all of the upgrades, including the skins, for the one I have. So I literally go through the weapons in order, upgrading them completely, before I buy the next. For example, I could buy the RAT right now but I haven't finished all of the ones before it so I'm holding off.

Also, I explore EVERY inch of the map on foot, even the areas around the edges of the map. I've found some nice alpha animals and few stashes by doing it.

LOL.

That's pretty intense.

I actually enjoy the grind. Especially in this game, hunting with the bow to get money is pretty fun.
