What can you craft in Far Cry 6?

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 find and open all Criptograma Chests
Two players ride horses in Far Cry 6.

While Far Cry 6 has been nearly universally deemed as "just more Far Cry," the fact is the series is still somewhat unique among other games. There are not many other titles out there that are both massive open-world games, overflowing with side missions, collectibles, activities, and treasures to hunt, and first-person shooters. For the most part, those two ingredients aren't blended all that often. That perspective shift can make exploring the lush landscape of Yara all the more enjoyable, and even push you toward wanting to hunt down all of its secrets. One of the most cryptic of collectibles on the island is the Criptograma Chests.

Criptograma Chests are very different from typical chests littered around the map in Far Cry 6. You won't be able to crack these crates open the moment you find them. All of the 15 Criptograma Chests require you to first find two Criptograma Charts to unlock them, meaning you will need to find a total of 30 charts to scoop up all 15 of the rewards. And you'll want these rewards, too, as these chests hold some of the strongest gear in the game. Plus, as is common for collectibles in an open-world game, if you open them all you can also get the That's Puzzling trophy or achievement. Finding the chests is one thing, but combined with the charts, this is a daunting treasure hunt.

The revolution Yara so desperately needs in Far Cry 6 cannot be accomplished without violence. The dictator Anton Castillo is determined to use his new cancer treatment to bolster his own power, despite promising to use it to rebuild the unstable country. Now that he's treating his people more as slaves than citizens, it is up to you and the guerilla fighters to take down Castillo's government and free the people of Yara. It is a big island, however, with many obstacles in your path to Castillo, including soldiers as well as natural predators. It's a good thing your character Dani is more than skilled with various tools of destruction.

You'll be exposed to a lot of weapons during your time in Far Cry 6. The island is littered with them, though you won't find the best of the best just lying around. There are many categories of weapons, such as rifles, SMGs, LMGs, snipers, shotguns, bows, and more. Plus, there are unique weapons in each category that have special buffs but are not able to be modded. Between the sheer number of guns, plus all the ways you can alter them with mods, and trying to figure out how to get what you want, this already packed game can be overwhelming. Here are the best weapons in Far Cry 6 and how you can get them.

Far Cry 6: Where to find all USB Song Sticks
Far Cry 6 Political.

If there's one thing you can count on an open-world Ubisoft game to have, it's tons of collectibles. Ever since the early Assassin's Creed days, they've leaned more and more on filling their maps with knickknacks, trinkets, and sparkly objects to divert your attention from the main story. Far Cry 3 was the first in the series to really embrace that open-world design, and since then, they've only piled on more and more things to grab as their worlds continue to get larger. Far Cry 6 certainly follows that same formula, but one type of collectible, in particular, adds a bit of an extra incentive to finding them all aside from just checking it off a list of things to do.

USB Song Sticks are a new collectible in the Far Cry games. Unlike other collectibles, even ones in the same game, these actually have a use outside of just filling up your completion meter. The USB Song Sticks, of which there are a total of 15 laying around the region of Yara, all each hold a specific song that you can listen to once found. Once you've collected one, that song can be played whenever you want while driving or flying across the majestic landscape. If you want to load up the best tunes for your trip through Far Cry 6, check out where to find all the USB Song Sticks.
