I don't like the driving portions of this game since it's in first person, but I have to admit that certain races and sequences are really fun, especially when you're barreling downhill at top speed with little to no visibility due to bumpy roads and large amounts of foliage...

The C4 and prox mine in FC3 are really limited in how useful they are. Love the hunting aspect of the game, wish they made it more difficult when you play the game on hard.
It would be nice if there were some kill the bad guy missions that were method optional. Depending on what I can see, I either pick off the support guys from a distance, or stay in the bushes and do takedowns. There was only once so far that I had to take on the leader and a helper because he was a heavy and I ran out of bullets for the 700.

Question about free roam after completing the main story.




Do the outposts ever revert back to enemy control after main story completion? Also, do all of the unlocks and weapons carry over to a new playthrough?

I'm about halfway through the campaign, and enemies on hoyts island are f*cking impossible to deal with. How do you guys get rid of heavies? The only way I can seem to is with c4, mines, or lots of bullets to the legs. Is there an easier way to take these guys out?

For my guy, I'm becoming somewhat of a takedown master. The only things I haven't unlocked in that area is the grenade takedown and the heavy beatdown.

Sniper to the back of the head. The first time I ran onto one in a group I dealt with him last and it took forever. The next times I took care of him first and he went down in a single shot. If he's alert to you he never turns around.

Only easy way to kill the heavies without explosives is a takedown or a sniper round to the back of the head.

Once you get the heavy beat down you can use the take down move to get the big guys. I always singled those guys out first. I like to try stealth as the first option by shooting or disabling alarms. If that isnt an option I open up from distance with sniper rifles and grenade launchers. The launcher takes care of the heavies and if not, I move in with the flamethrower as that burns em up good. My other weapon I carry is the desert eagle or the 44 for close in powerful quick shots.

I run around with the recurve bow, flare gun, one of the sniper rifles, and whatever assault rifle the baddies drop. the bow is much fun to use.

The Z93 and it's variant, the AMR, both work great against heavies. One has a suppressor while the other uses explosive ammunition. Both are .50 cal and will one shot a heavy so take your pick.
