Meet the Rakyat tribe in Far Cry 3

Meet the Rakyat tribe in Far Cry 3

After getting us acquainted with the island’s resident sociopaths a few weeks ago, we now get a chance to meet some of the natives — and boy are they charming. Sure, they’re not as violent as Buck and Vaas, but we’ve gotta admit that they seem equally crazy.

First we meet Dave, who apparently thinks its appropriate to wake somebody up by waving a machete in their face. He then explains that if you try to kill him, he’ll probably kill you back, which seems fair enough. We’re all for traditions and customs and whatnot, but whatever happened to a good old-fashioned handshake?

Next we get introduced to Citra; the leader of the Rakyat tribe. First impressions last a lifetime, and she starts off with a bang. First she tells us a far-fetched story about how the island was created, and follows that up by giving us a near-lethal dose of some sort of hallucinogenic poison. And these people are supposed to be our allies?

We’re not sure who we’re gonna meet in part 3, but we’re betting they’ll be of questionable sanity as well. Far Cry 3 comes out on December 3rd.
