Far Cry 6 is designed around yet another enormous open world for players to explore. And while the overarching theme of the game is once again to reclaim territory from an evil dictator, there are plenty of optional activities to involve yourself with along the way. That includes fishing, which is a mini-game that seems almost to have become an obligatory feature of every modern open-world game these days. In any case, here’s how to fish in Far Cry 6 if you’re hankering to put down the assault rifle for a moment and pass away an afternoon casting a line.
Fishing in Far Cry 6
Fishing in Far Cry 6 is unlocked during the early stages of the game as part of the tutorial missions on the first island. After you have been granted access to the fishing rod, you can go to any body of water, press and hold L1/ LB to open the weapon wheel, selecting your fishing rod, and then casting it out. You then need to slowly reel your line in to attract fish.
When you get a bite, use the on-screen prompts to move the right analog stick against the way the fish is pulling, while holding down L2 to reel the fish in. It’s all pretty intuitive.
Upgrading Your Fishing Rod
Your fishing rod can be upgraded by interacting with the tackle box, laying on the floor wherever you see the fishing hook icon on your map.
Here, you can change your float/ lure, and upgrade your fishing line and reel. You’ll need to use these to catch some of the tougher fish in the game, so make sure to make use of this if you’re looking to catch them all.
That is everything you need to know about how to fish in Far Cry 6. If you’re still on the hunt for more info about the game, be sure to check out all of the guide wiki, as it’ll surely have all of the tips, tricks, and FAQs you could ever have about the game.
