What are the best skills in Far Cry 5?

Choose your allies carefully in battle.

Let's face it: the perks to unlock will depend primarily on your style of play. However, there are some that it's best to unlock as soon as possible. For that very reason, we've made a small list of the skills we think will work best:



  • Improved Health
    When you dive into the world of Far Cry 5, you'll realize you're definitely weak. For this very reason, a good tip is to increase your life points. No doubt the first boost is mandatory, but you'll be able to assess whether you'll spend skill points on subsequent health gains;
  • Parachute
    The perk in question can be unlocked with only one skill point. During the course of your adventure, there will be mountains and steep slopes. This skill will allow you to fall without fear;
  • Rampino
    Again, we're talking about a perk that costs very little, and that will allow us to climb the cliffs we're sure to come across;
  • Agili Fingers
    Although you may not prefer the stealth approach, this skill will make your life easier. You can sabotage alarms and set traps in much less time;
  • Sneak Shot
    Same as before. Although we may not like stealth, being able to walk faster in stealth mode is definitely worth all 4 skill points you'll spend on this perk;
  • Blacksmith
    Unlocking doors and safes without triggering the alarm is a great skill to have. It will allow you to access various locations and get your hands on some great prizes;
  • Additional holster
    Getting a third weapon slot is vital, especially if the alternative is wandering around a world full of enemies armed only with a bow, or having to abandon an interesting and powerful weapon because you only have two slots available;
  • Leadership
    As soon as you've recruited more than one ally, you'll realize you only have one slot available. With this skill, you can take two Guns for Hire and/or Fangs for Hire with you. On the other hand, you know that unity is strength;
