Unlike Hurk Drubman Jr., Timber is a newly introduced character in Far Cry: New Dawn, replacing Boomer from Far Cry 5.
Timber can be unlocked early in the video game, by completing a very accessible side-quest. Because of this, it is a good idea to find him the moment you finish Gear Up story mission.
Unlocking Timber will give you an advantage when liberating Outposts or while hunting, as he can mark alarms, enemies and nearby animals.
