An impressive predator, the Cougar in Far Cry: New Dawn is both fast and dangerous. Very powerful and capable to leap on its prey, the Cougar requires a weapon with an increased rate of fire.
The animal’s rank (3) also represents an issue early in the game, hence we recommend using the Blunderbuss MG42.
While Timber may not look important while hunting this animal, you can actually use it to sport all nearby Cougars before they attack you.
