Hunting Tips

Just like other mammals from the Cervidae family, the Caribou in Far Cry: New Dawn is weak against arrows and high-velocity bullets.

Therefore, using a Bow or a sniper rifle, such as the Space Force SA-50, will help you take down this animal, usually with a single shot.

Aiming for the animal’s head, throat or heart is required but not mandatory.
