Far Cry 5: How to Recruit Cheeseburger the Bear
The latest entry in the Far Cry series drops players into the fictional world of Hope County, Montana and puts them face to face with an enigmatic cult leader called Joseph Seed. The dynamic open-world mechanics used in previous games make a return here, with gun-toting maniacs and vicious wild animals waiting around every corner. Far Cry 5 introduces a more extensive buddy system and gives players the option to recruit animals and people to fight alongside them. One of Far Cry 5’s coolest companions is Cheeseburger the bear. He is incredibly useful in a battle so recruiting him as early as possible is paramount. Like many of the game’s recruits, he is attained by completing a mission. Here’s how to recruit Cheeseburger the bear.
Liberate the F.A.N.G Center Outpost – How to Get Cheeseburger the Bear in Far Cry 5
To unlock the mission in which you can recruit Cheeseburger in Far Cry 5, you must first liberate the F.A.N.G Center outpost. The outpost is located in Jacob’s Region situated in Whitetail Mountains, northeast of Moccasin River. To liberate the outpost, kill all of the enemies in the area, beware of the chopper which arrives if an alarm is triggered, as well as the wolves which are set upon you.
Accept the Right to Bear Arms Mission
Once the F.A.N.G Center is cleared, an NPC named Wade Fowler will appear. Speaking to him will reveal that he set Cheeseburger free after the cultists raided the area. You’re told that after developing diabetes, Cheeseburger has been switched to a diet of salmon. In order to approach him and win him over, you’ll have to arrive with salmon in hand.
Fish for Salmon
Accepting the Right to Bear Arms mission will give you the objective of catching a salmon at the designated fishing spot. Go to the waypoint on the map and use your fishing rod to reel in a salmon. You only need one, and you can make use of the Fisher King perk to make catching it easier if you need.
Find and Recruit Cheeseburger
Next up, you’ll be given a waypoint to go to where Cheeseburger will be waiting, among 20 or so dead bodies. Approach the bear and interact with him to feed him a salmon, after which he will become a companion.
Stop the Cult From Taking Cheeseburger
After bonding with your new ursine pal, cultists will descend upon the area hellbent on taking Cheeseburger away. You must kill all of the attacking enemies, and can make use of Cheeseburger to do so. He will automatically attack nearby enemies, or can be directed by the player. Once all of the cultists are dead, the Right to Bear Arms mission will be complete, unlocking Cheeseburger as a companion for life. You need only go into the recruits section of the menu to get him to tag along on missions.
