Best Weapons in Far Cry 6

Unlock no more than these!

There are about 100 weapons featured in Far Cry 6. These include rifles, submachine guns, sniper rifles, shotguns, bows, launchers, light machine guns, resolver weapons, auto-pistols, and pistols. You can customize them at Resolver Workbench(es) scattered across the map.

You can equip three primary weapons and one sidearm at a time, along with a Supremo. Although the choice of weapons is vast, we have sorted out the best from each category for you. You should unlock these weapons first and definitely try the recommended builds.

Best Rifle in Far Cry 6

The best Rifle selection was the most difficult to make, and hence we've come up with two of these. Both are perfect but situational and can be used alternatively.

AR-C Rifle

The fully automatic rifle has a perfectly balanced fire rate, handling, damage, and accuracy. You can't go wrong with it, and it should be your go-to primary weapon. You can also grab the Urushi Unique Rifle, which is a pretty good blueprint for the AR-C. The recommended build is:

  • Attachment Mods
    • Ammo Socket — Armor Piercing Rounds
    • Muzzle Socket — Large Rectangular Suppressor
    • Optical Socket — Reflex Sight
  • Mods
    • Rifle Mod Socket — Gut-Wrencher

MS16 S

This is a hard-hitting DMR rifle with long-range and extremely good precision.

  • Attachment Mods
    • Ammo Socket — Armor Piercing Rounds
    • Muzzle Socket — Large Rectangular Suppressor
    • Optical Socket — ACOG (4x)

MP7 — Best SMG in Far Cry 6

The MP7 submachine gun performs well in close to mid-range combats. Although it is an SMG and provides better mobility, the AR-C rifle does a similar job and has a better range. You can customize it as:

  • Attachment Mods
    • Ammo Socket — Armor Piercing Rounds
    • Optical Socket — Reflex Sight
    • Pointer Socket — Resolver Laser Pointer MK. 2
  • Mods
    • SMG Mod Socket (3) — Nimble Shooter, Gut-Wrencher, Extended Mag

MG42 — Best LMG in Far Cry 6

Although light machine guns have limited use in the game, they are well effective against vehicles and tanks. You can equip blast rounds ammunition on MG42 and obliterate anything and everything. Apart from that, you are better off with a lighter rifle / SMG.

  • Attachment Mods
    • Ammo Socket — Blast Rounds
    • Optical Socket — Specter Sight (2x)
  • Mods
    • LMG Mod Socket (3) — Magic Fingers, Fast Reload, Trigger Discipline

You can also try out the unlockable RPD blueprint i.e., Crackle & Pop Unique LMG.

SPAS-12 — Best Shotgun in Far Cry 6

The following SPAS-12 build can kill in one shot up close. You can also unlock and equip the Supercharger Unique Shotgun for the best SPAS blueprint. Moreover, you can use the powerful Humidora Unique Shotgun, an 1887 Sawed-Off Shotgun variant.

  • Attachment Mods
    • Ammo Socket — Buckshot Rounds
    • Muzzle Socket — X-Large Classic Suppressor
    • Pointer Socket — Laser Pointer
  • Mods
    • Shotgun Mod Socket — Keep It Cool

.308 Carbine — Best Sniper Rifle in Far Cry 6

The MS16 S does a really good job at being a long-range one-shot kill weapon. However, it doesn't give the satisfaction and feel of a sniper rifle. Try the Carbine if you're a sniper lover. Furthermore, you can try the El Tirano Unique Rifle for a heavy-duty sniper blueprint.

  • Attachment Mods
    • Ammo Socket — Armor Piercing Rounds
    • Muzzle Socket — Large Cylindrical Suppressor
    • Optical Socket — ACOG (4x) / Enhanced Scope (3x-6x)
  • Mods
    • Sniper Mod Socket — Fast Reload

Recurve Bow - Best Bow in Far Cry 6

Recurve Bow is preferred for the only two bow options in the game due to a slightly higher rate of fire. You may try out the El Capirote Unique Bow blueprint variant as well. 

As for the customization, you may select any arrow according to your requirement from EMP, incendiary, armor piercing, blast arrows, and others.

MGL-6 — Best Launcher in Far Cry 6

RPG-7 rocket launcher performs well in the game, but it cannot overshadow the MGL-6 grenade launcher. Try out the EL Caballero Unique Launcher for the best experience. Besides, you can try the Into Orbit Unique Launcher variant of RAT4 with an automatic lock-on.

Skorpion — Best Sidearm in Far Cry 6

For a sidearm, you can choose from single-fire pistols or full-auto pistols. The Skorpion turns out to be a powerful option and can even compete with some SMGs. Try out the El General Unique Pistol blueprint for fun.

  • Attachment Mods
    • Ammo Socket — Blast Rounds
    • Muzzle Socket — Basic Suppressor
  • Mods
    • Auto Pistol Mod Socket — Nimble Shooter, Keep It Cool, Gut-Wrencher
