Far Cry 6 crafting guide: How to craft weapon attachments, ammo, and more

If you want to excel at Far Cry 6, you need to master crafting — buying, creating, and adding mods to your most important items. Crafting can greatly change the way you play as well as add powerful boosts, so it’s well worth spending some time on. Our guide will get you caught up on everything you need to know.

Primarily, your weapons. You can add mods to your weapons in every slot, which include your three primary weapons, your sidearm, and your vehicle weapons. While you can wear many additional types of gear to get various perks, you cannot craft your clothing like you can weapons.

The other primary crafting option is for your Supremo, your special backpack/toolkit equipped with a powerful ability. You can’t exactly change what the Supremo of your choice does, but you can add mods to change the perks it provides, how your grenades work, and more.

Where do you craft in Far Cry 6?

You can only craft from a Resolver Workbench. These benches are found at the camps you unlock as you explore the game. Early on, you are introduced to the basics of the Workbench and crafting to help you get used to it.

You can only craft guns that you have already found, and crafting takes a certain amount of different resources (we’ll dive into that below). As you continue to find more materials and guns, more crafting options will be made available to you. This is one reason it’s a good idea to always take time to pick up resources when you find them. And, of course, weapons that aren’t technically guns, like bows, can also be crafted in very similar ways.

Mastering the weapon sockets

Crafting in Far Cry 6 is divided into four primary categories — ammo, muzzle, optical, and pointer. You can equip one mod of each on your gun to change how it works. Let’s jump in and see what these categories are like and what crafting options you may want to (literally) shoot for.


Ammo sockets allow you to change the type of ammo you shoot. This is one of the most varied and interesting sockets and allows you to drastically change the way you play if you prefer. Simple options like ammo-piercing rounds are excellent for fast takedowns and dealing with elite enemies. Poison and incendiary rounds can provide particularly innovative methods of dealing with an enemy camp, especially if you like to sow chaos. Explosive rounds are great at handling larger targets as well, like those pesky helicopters.


The muzzle socket will dictate how your weapon fires. Here, you’ll want to choose mods that enable the specific weapon type you are using. If you are playing a sneaky, sniping game with your enemies, you will want to look for the most powerful suppressors that cut down as much sound as possible. If you like sniper rifles in particular, you could also choose to keep your distance and switch to a mod that allows your bullets to travel farther.

If you are using a weapon with a high rate of fire, you’ll want to choose muzzle mods that will prevent it from overheating instead. Pistols may benefit from compensators instead for a more accurate aim.


This socket is all about mastering your gun sights. Choose the sights that work best for your playstyle, which is typically determined by the range you like to shoot at. This socket works best if you experiment with a variety of sights so you can find the range and style that most benefit you.


This is a simple option to add a laser pointer to your gun. It’s not always necessary (or for some weapons, even possible), but it can be useful for certain builds. There’s not much detriment to using a pointer for mid- and close-range weapons.

Mastering Supremo mods

The Arsenal Supremo backpack allows you to equip a number of throwables and mods that affect your general gameplay or add effects to your weapons. There’s a lot to experiment with here, but we’ll narrow it down to a few recommendations:

  • Equip a few different kinds of projectiles. Normal pipe bombs are fine in the beginning, but you’ll want to have a selection for a variety of situations.
  • If you lack another source of EMP damage, it’s a good idea to have EMP grenades equipped as well.
  • The general socket should always match your playstyle. If you use stealth a lot, equip a mod that reduces noise. If you run and gun, plan for the excellent healing factor mod. If you like to go straight in, choose mods that add more defense.
  • Charger sockets control how your Supremo gains charges. Pick the mod based on what you do most often, from headshots to healing yourself.

Gathering your resources

Many mods need to be crafted by using the right ingredients. Guns, for example, will require gunpowder as a base ingredient and then other resources depending on the type. Here’s a quick rundown of common resources and what you should know about them.

Gunpowder: Gunpowder is used for all different kinds of weapon upgrades. The best way to find it is to locate non-weapon FND caches on the map and open them. Non-FND caches are identified by their FND logos.

Supremo-Bond: This is used to add mods to your Supremos and can be found in a variety of situations, including Libertad Crates, FND Supply Drops, and more. However, it can’t be traded for.

Recycled fasteners: These nuts and bolts are easy to pick up around any facility with metalwork or scrap. You can also trade meat for them and find them in various caches.

Industrial circuits: If you want circuits, you’ll have to work for them. They can be found in Guerrilla Caches, as a reward for Ambushes, and sometimes as a trade for rare meats.

Durable seals: As long as you are looking for other resources, you should stumble on plenty of durable seals, which are found in many places and traded for common meats.

Durable plastic: You’ll need plastic for some Supremo mods, and you can occasionally find it in workshops and facilities, as well as get it as a reward for ambushes. It also trades for a variety of uncommon meats.

Recycled glass:  You can find glass in many scrapyards and workshops, and oddly enough it can be traded for a variety of fish.

Industrial composite: This is a tough material to find, but you can get it from the most challenging ambushes, or by trading the rarest fish or Moneda at camp.

Depleted uranium: This is a rare resource used to buy new Supremos and other specialized gear. It’s typically found in anti-aircraft bases.

Far Cry 6: How to play co-op multiplayer
Two players ride horses in Far Cry 6.

No one expects you to overthrow the Yaran dictator and liberate the nation all on your own. Sure, there are other guerilla fighters on the island and even some awesome animal Amigos who can join you in your fight, but there's no substituting another real person by your side. Past Far Cry games have had various forms of multiplayer, including traditional PvP modes, isolated competitive co-op missions, and full-blown co-op play. This latest installment brings things back to basics with a simple, yet fully robust, co-op multiplayer function.

If you want to dive right into multiplayer co-op, there are a few hurdles you need to clear before you can team up with a friend or stranger for some destructive fun. Once you do get connected, though, the entire world will be open for your enjoyment. That includes all the missions, even story-focused ones, so you can effectively play the majority of Far Cry 6 as a co-operative experience. If you're eager to liberate the island with a pal by your side, here's how to play co-op multiplayer in Far Cry 6.

Anyone who has played Far Cry 6 and decided that they've had enough of Yara may find some condescending emails in their inbox straight from Ubisoft itself. The company is apparently sending out emails to anyone who has played the game (and subsequently made a Ubisoft account), taunting them into playing the game more.

Far Cry 6 Amigos companions guide: How to unlock, perks, abilities, and more
A small dog named Chorizo from Far Cry 6.

The more recent Far Cry titles have all straddled a line between mostly serious and dark main stories with wild and over-the-top gameplay. Far Cry 6 places you in the role of a freedom fighter trying to overthrow an oppressive government run by a corrupt dictator, but in between those main campaign missions are plenty of opportunities for off-the-wall antics and mayhem. It's thanks to that balance that the game doesn't become too self-serious and remains fun to play for the dozens of hours you can spend roaming the map completing optional objectives and searching out all the collectibles.

One of the wackiest new mechanics in Far Cry 6 is called Amigos. In past games, you could occasionally recruit other soldiers to fight with you, and in Primal even tame a wild animal to temporarily join you. Now there are uniquely named animal companions that you can unlock and take with you on your fight against the military powers of Yara. Each Amigo has its own advantages and abilities that you can level up to make them even more powerful. Plus, some are just downright adorable. Here's a full breakdown of all seven Amigos to unlock in Far Cry 6, including the DLC ones.
