5 Things You Should Be Able To Do With Far Cry 5’s Animal Companions

2 ) The Call Of The Wild


Far Cry 5

Thankfully with the Leadership perk you can at least have two animal companions at a time.

There’s only one thing better than a dog, and that’s lots of dogs. Or wolves. The same goes for cougars (the animal, mind you) and grizzly bears. So why, if you can befriend one of these animals, can you not befriend more? And by more I mean this: I want roving gangs of animals to take down the Eden’s Gate cult with. Is that too much to ask?

Admittedly, much of this stems from the fact that I just don’t like killing animals in games, even the wolverines that show up out of nowhere and tear out a chunk of your ass in this game.

I guess what I really want is a game where I can play one part Disney princess, one part revolutionary, and I’m disappointed that Far Cry 5 didn’t play into that fantasy. Oh well. Maybe one day.

1 ) The Cheeseburger Mount


Far Cry 5

You know that breath stinks, but you don’t really care that much.

Silly? Yes. But you can’t deny that this wouldn’t have been an amazing option. How do you not look like a badass riding a damned grizzly bear into a fight? Simple answer: you always look like a badass if you’re riding a bear.

I’ve acknowledged already that Far Cry 5 is a very tongue-in-cheek sort of game. It’s self-aware commentary that also has no trouble poking fun at itself. So really, would riding a bear be that out of character for the series?

I suppose being a newcomer, I many not be the best person to make that commentary, but I’m going to anyway because I’m sad that Cheeseburger didn’t operate as a mount. He’s easily the best companion in terms of combat (sorry Boomer, you’re still number one good boy to me) so why not be able to charge in on his back?

Maybe it’s because he’s diabetic?

I kid. Regardless, this and everything else listed here by no mean insinuate that Far Cry 5 is an incomplete game without their inception. I simply think this would have made things more fun.

Agree? Disagree? Yell at me in the comments section and let me know!
