Fun things in Far Cry

I know this should probably go in software but since this is a hot topic for enthusiasts... After getting the cheats for unlimited weapons listed in the long FarCry thread:

1. Snipe all the seagulls. Heh, the sound effects remain though.

2. The shark spins like a football in the air when you blow it up with the rocket launcher. See if you can "bounce" him to the water and play "Jaws"<g>

3. Blow a barrel up and over the railing at the top bunker and chase it all the way down to the ocean, helping it along the way. See if it sinks or floats.

4. Pay attention to the missiles when they enter the water. The path changes to a downward arc. Nice to see a little effort in the physics engine.

5. Drive the buggy into the water until you get to the deep end where it stays sunk.....until you walk to the shallow end and blow it up with a rocket. Then the debris floats.

6. Kill a bad guy in water and keep shooting him. Notice all the blood diffusing into the water. Too cool.

7. The fish float to the surface when you kill them....so kill them all. Muhahaha.

Anyone notice anything else cool to do?

These are really neat effects. And i thought the little covenant flying though the air when a plasma grenade explodes near them looks funny/cool.

Driving the dune buggy up to the top bunker was fun. Navigating the stairs was a little tedious though.

I noticed that if I disabled all the ATi control panel stuff from running in the background, the game responded a little quicker as it loaded textures in and out of memory.

Theres a much easier way to get the buggy up the hill. If you go past the stairs further into the jungle just before you come to an old rusted airplane theres a shallow slope that you can walk or drive up and it comes out just at the top of the stair area. This is the first route I took when I played for the first time just be chance. I completly bypassed the bugy area and the stairs area cause I never seen them due to the route I happened to take the first time.

Where did you get the rocket launcher?
January 28, 2004 5:14:19 PM

There's one sitting on the barrel by the door that you can't get into. When you're waiting for them to open it use the launcher to drop all the helecopters. It'll block the baddies from getting you.

The only fun thing I've found is shooting down the shark.

You can get the cheat patch at <A HREF="http://forums.ubi.com/messages/message_view-topic.asp?n..." target="_new">http://forums.ubi.com/messages/message_view-topic.asp?n...;/A> which will give you all the weapons if you choose them at the menu after you start the demo. There is an updated one further down the page that has GOD mode as well.

As for the buggy route, I just wanted to see if I could get it to go up those stairs. Heh. I also got it stuck in the lower tunnel. I wish the "boundry" choppers could be killed so I could explore more.

Buggy on left side of island. Where the bad guy's have their patrol boats.

It's too bad you can't use weapons underwater. I'd like to knife the fish<g>.

I have not found any fish yet.
January 29, 2004 6:53:00 AM

To see fish I think you need to have your settings pretty high because I've done tons of swimming and not seen a single fish either.

I just found the wild white boar on the far right hand side of the main island. Heh.

I'm pretty sure everything has to be maxed out to get all the wildlife.

Man, this is a pretty odd pose he landed in after being blown up. I shot him in the butt and this is the result. Definitely not his day. I think this game is going to be totally awesome.

There should be TWO white boars, at least there was when I played. And I was hoping you could slaughter them and eat them for health but nope. They don't even squeal much when you kill 'em! Kinda like the Guards... :evil:

That pic is awful...looks like something I've seen on those "other" websites :eek: 
January 29, 2004 3:28:39 PM

All I've found is one wild boar.

Have you found super speed boat bad guys have? But you can not use it.
January 30, 2004 2:50:29 AM

Theres two of those pig creatures and I dont believe they are boars. Boars have husks and are anything but slow and shy like these things are. Also you can see them even on the lowest settings because I see them every time I play and my settings are low.

any one found the speed boat that has rockets you can fire? not the big one with mortars that you cant drive. all the speeders have the launcher but most dont have rockets. for a demo you would think they would give you lots of things to try, or at least have a mode where you can just explore things without bad guys.

Ya I found the big speed boat. Rocket launcher but you can't use it. It sits in the water doing nothing. No one on board. I swam back to shore took out binoculars bam rocket launcher got me.
January 30, 2004 5:17:49 PM

oh really? i found the larger boat with a guy on it, i was able to use the mortars but i couldnt aim up, once i killed the guy on it it wasnt fireing any more. there are some guys in the water on the regular speeders that fire rockets too.

Yes they do, when in the boat press X to switch from machine guns to rocket launcher:)

When I got there there was no one there. I'll have to try f again to see if it will let me in. Ya the other guys are the ones who smoked me.
January 31, 2004 3:01:41 AM

Jihiggs is correct, however in my case its a random thing. About 50-60% of the time the boats have no rocket ammo when I play. But the times I play that they do have rocket ammo they always have 999 ammo that can't be depleted.

the one that shoots rockets at you has 30 rounds when you get to it, but i got to the point where the door was unlocked and got in the boat at the begining and it had 999 ammo unlimited.

Don't you just love it. When you set the charge you run like heck. And it slows you down so you get your ass blowed away.
