What Difference Difficulty Makes

First off, it’s worth noting that you’re not necessarily going to get the adjustment in the gameplay you want from changing difficulty in Far Cry New Dawn.

That’s because according to the in-game menus, changing the difficulty only affects how much damage you take from enemies, rather than granting you more ammo or crafting materials for weapons.
