Welcome to Hope County, Montana and to our Far Cry New Dawn Wiki Guide, friend!
Looks like the Collapse did some serious damage to this world. It’s not what it used to be when we last visited.
No worries though, we’ll put you on the road fast enough so you can start to rebuild this devastated place and bring it back to its former glory.
It’s just a matter of time until we start controlling every inch of the map.
To do so; however, we need to take care of the Highwaymen and those two crazy twin sisters. Yeah, Mickey and Lou are our biggest enemies. Fear not, my friend, as we’ll soon have enough power to deal with them.
So, here is the plan.
First, we need to establish some bases around the map. Then, we need to gather crafting materials and level up as fast as possible.
We also have to find all Far Cry New Dawn collectibles (Dear Photographs, MP3 players) as they will give us a huge advantage. And will also help us unlock some achievements and trophies.
Did you know that Far Cry New Dawn features Treasure Missions? We’ll deal with them too.
Hunting animals (including Monstrous Animals) is also important. As well as fishing. We’ll reveal all animals locations in this guide too.
We’ll also teach you how to picklock safes, gather herbs, craft medkits, liberate outposts, complete Expeditions, and basically everything you need to know in Far Cry New Dawn.
