5 Reasons Why Far Cry 5 Players Must Protect Boomer at All Costs

He Keeps You Stocked with Ammo

Far Cry 5

A safe dog is a happy dog, and Boomer from Far Cry 5 is no exception.

One of the many companions which can be recruited in the latest installment of the Far Cry franchise, Boomer is a standout not only because of his assistance capabilities in a firefight but also for his dedication to the cause of restoring peace to Hope County. Fetching firearms for the player and rending cultist throats, he’s as potent if not more so than any of his human teammates, and he’ll be crucial to the success of the resistance’s plans. That said, he’ll also be putting himself in danger on a regular basis, and immortal or no, any true lover of dogs shouldn’t be careless enough to let this fine fang for hire wind up injured and incapacitated for any amount of time. 

Amid the chaos of being shot at by cultists or avoiding the bull rush of a full-grown grizzly bear, it can be easy for players to lose track of how much ammo they have on hand. With Boomer healthy and at your side though, you’ll have a companion constantly on the lookout for weapons and ammunition, keeping you in the fight and armed to the teeth.

Of course, if you let Boomer get taken out, you’ll be left defenseless as the crazies and critters rend you to shreds, so spare some ammo defending him while he helps to build up your arsenal to greater heights.
