Hunting Tips

As a Rank 1 animal, the Wild Dog in Far Cry: New Dawn is easy to kill even early in the game.

You can hunt this animal with any weapon, although we prefer the Space Force SA-50 for its increased damage.

When you head out trying to find a Wild Dog, make sure you take Timber with you, as he can tag the animals nearby. A single shot from the Space Force SA-50 should put down this animal.
