    Nope, I got the Bull shotgun pretty early on and there's not much that gun can't put down in one shot.

    Did you have any trouble with DX11? I had weird shadow issues with mine (googling finds lots of people). I'm running at max but only under dx9, still looks wonderful though.

    I have no problem with DX11 running at max settings.

    DX11 is no go for me. The frame drop isn't worth it. 60fps @ 1080p under DX9 is fine by me.

    Yep. Whilst I love the island and stealth mechanics of this game, other elements are very badly implemented. I have just hit an awful Max Payne style dream sequence mission that has put a cherry on top of the awful 'mystical' storyline cake and given me indigestion.

    No way is this GOTY for me, although it flattered to deceive at first glance - a very good engine let down by cookie cutter missions and a seriously dull and laughable storyline.
    Beginning to agree :(

    This. Awesome gun, one shots bears if you take their face off, every other animal, pretty much anywhere on them will do the trick.

    Yep, that shotty, the Shredder SMG and the recurve bow with the handy sight that shows you the distance to aim at are basically what I've been rolling with for most of the game. Pretty much has me ready for any situation.

    It unlocks for activating a certain number of radio towers I think.

    Only an SLi or crossfire system can run this game at a locked 1080p 60fps, I'm running a AMD Fx 8150 clocked at 4.4ghz, 16gb ddr3 ram and a R7970 msi edition and even I have frame rate drops. I'm running mostly on max but a couple of settings i dropped down to make it more stable.

    I'm finding that with a new pc I tend to look more a FRAPs than play the bloody game, so i've turned it off now and i'm enjoying it so much more.

    I googled: You get it with finding relics.

    Speaking of which - how come I'll be standing on top of a relic symbol on my map, but I can't find any relics? I've been dreaming that there's some massive system of caves, but somehow I doubt it.

    There are a huge amount of caves, sometimes with difficult to find entrances, there's also underground areas to be accessed via wells.

    Ah okay, it won't be that many relics though as I've had it from very early on and only have about 30 relics in total now after about 18 hours of playing.

    There are tons of caves and the entrance might be a distance away. If near the coast, look for something there.

    Then storyline missions have improved a tad on the second island. Like the infiltration stuff.

    Has anyone here bought a pre-owned Far Cry 3 or is planning too? Because i have a spare uplay pass for this game here if anyone wants it. Its used for the MP, CO-OP, map sharing etc.

    I have a spare because a couple of weeks ago after finishing FC3 i traded it in. Come a week later i missed playing the game and went and bought it again. I got a new copy as it was the same price as the new.

    So yeahh, spare uplay pass if anyone needs it.

    Check the handbook from the pause menu for the unlocks. White stars are the Signature Weapons, Blue stars are achievements and Gold stars are recipes. Completing 6 Rakyat challenges will unlock a weapon, as will collecting x amount of relics, letters etc. When you're looking at the map, the black dots are cave entrances/exits, a lot of which lead to relics. Also, cashing in your uplay points will unlock The Cannon, a rather nice Magnum that has a scope and does a shitload of damage. When relic hunting, a few of them are rather deep under the sea and can be hard to find/get to. Don't panic though, you don't have to worry about having enough air to get back to the surface, you can just grab the relic and then fast travel to any safe house.

    Signature weapons:

    Tanto: double damage of normal knife, unlocks with 6 Lost Letters.
    Bull: extra damage mod, extended magazine, and red dot shotty, 10 relics to unlock in shops.
    AMR: 20 relics, ridiculously powerful sniper. Unsilenced and uses explosive rounds, which is bad.
    Shadow: 17 outposts, 1911 pistol with extended clip, sight and suppressor.
    Cannon: Uplay points, Magnum with extended barrel, sight and extended clip.
    Ripper: 6 Trials of the Rakyat passed to unlock, an LMG with scope and extended magazine with lowered recoil and better accuracy and power.
    Shredder: 10 memory cards to unlock, SMG with reflex sight and silencer and extended clip.
    Bushman: Get all the radio towers, assault rifle with suppressor, optical scope and extended magazine. Only way to get a suppressed P416.

    On second island now, thinking I'll spend my time getting all the towers now that I'm in disguise and people won't attack me.

    Am i missing something here about the story?

    Why is it hated so much exactly? Enjoyable so far for me. The characters I don't hate, what some sky diving americans are cunts automatically now?

    Anyhoo, guess doesn't matter!

    Bushman is the only weapon I don't have yet. Sounds very nice though. When I get to the second island towers shall be my priority.

    Also to wogsy81 and others who haven't got any yet, they appear in their own category in the shop, except the Tanto which appears under melee weapons. You'll need to extend your wallets to get some of them, as they're quite pricey.

    @Lexx87 You will come to know and dislike the characters after you've rescued them and especially after you've seen flashbacks (hint: Eat Me!) but the first clue that they're wankers comes in the video on the smartphone when they toast their parents' black cards (these are credit cards without spending limits).

    The story missions are patchy. Some are straight up firefights, some require stealth, both are OK, even pretty good. Even exploration missions aren't bad. But there are these game-ruining boss fights under 'psychedelic conditions' that you will want to forget.

    Finished. Glad I could kill my friends and died myself. They were all dickheads; deserved zero time. Of course it made no sense whatsoever at the end, but then that didn't surprise me given the way the game was going, Last few fights were shite, continuing the generic on-rails theme. The world made the game, and the best bits were taking over outposts. Alas this contributed nothing to the story and was a waste of time in regards to the end. Think I'll go and play Deus Ex again to remedy this. What is Dishonored's story like?

    Oh and agree about the boss fights. Probably the worst I've come across in a game for... since I can remember. Game of the year? Played little from 2012, but if this was really as good as it got, then I'm glad I didn't. Some lovely moments and nice design in places, ruined by an awful story, which was completely detached from what you did. 6/10. Suggest the developers go and play Skyrim for Farcry 4.

    I don't get the hate on this game regarding the story and why it is being singled out. Sure, it's not the best, but you have a ton of other free form things to do on the island. In fact, the story provides a nice alternative to dip into from time to time when you want something else to do besides taking out outposts, hunting, exploring or other side quests. If you play this game just for the story, you may be disappointed, but then your missing the point of the entire game IMHO.
