Anyone who has ever played a Far Cry game would know how important it is to have the right skills with you. There are tons and tons of options for skills so it can be quite difficult to figure out what they do and which ones should you be prioritizing. This Far Cry 5 Skills Guide will let you know about all of the skills in the game and will give you certain tips and tricks which will help you figure out which one of the skills are the best fit for you.
Far Cry 5 Skills
There are a total of five different Skill Categories in Far Cry 5. The first one is Survivalist which helps you survive for longer by doing stuff such as increasing your maximum health or allowing you to get more loot from certain species.
Renegade is all about wreaking havoc while Assassin is about sneaking around and taking out enemies without people finding out. You also have the Prepper skill. This skill allows you to pack a bigger punch and generally prepare better for fights hence the name. At the end, we have the Leader tree which allows people to come back faster after being injured.
Survivalist Class Skills
|Health Boost||Increases your maximum health by a certain amount.|
|Human Fish||You can swim faster and hold your breath for longer.|
|Fisher King||Fishes will fatigue quickly.|
|Repair Torch||Repairs cars and can be used to open safes.|
|Kick-Ass Binoculars||You can tag enemies through objects.|
|Harvest Master||Loot is doubled from plants and animals.|
Repair Torch is good for you if you like cars and find a lot of safes in the game. Binoculars benefit the stealthy player as they can be used to mark objects. Harvest Master is best for those who are extremely patient and want to get back into the game as fast as they possibly can.
Renegade Class Skills
|Parachute||You get a parachute for use when you file.|
|Wingsuit||You can glide with this suit.|
|Black Market||You can buy explosives at shops.|
|Vehicle Buster||You deal more damage to vehicles.|
|Saboteur||Set a vehicle on fire and make it explode.|
|Auto Repair||Your vehicles repair themselves.|
|Heavy Weapon Mastery||Your LMGs, rocket launchers and flame throwers become more accurate and are faster in terms of reloading, aiming and switching.|
|Rifle Mastery||Your rifles are more accurate. They also reload, switch and aim faster.|
|Weapons Pro||SMGs and Shotguns are more accurate and they have better reload speed along with aim and switch speed.|
Parachutes and Wing Suits can be quite fun for when you are jumping out of planes. Rifle Mastery is also really good as it allows you to snipe enemies from afar so you get a lot of versatility in terms of range. However, any one of the masteries couldn’t really hurt your chances of success.
Assassin Class Skills
|Grapple||You can use the grapple tools to climb certain spots.|
|Sneaky Sprint||You can move faster when you are crouched.|
|Master Blaster||Components required for crafting explosives are halved.|
|Takedown Mastery||You can do sidearm takedowns, melee throws and chain them together.|
|Ghost||You make less noise during movement and take less damage when you fall.|
|Throwback||You can throw back projectiles such as dynamite and grenades.|
|Locksmith||You can lockpick certain doors and safes.|
|Close Combat Mastery||You are more effective with melee weapons. Your accuracy improves and you can reload, aim and switch your handguns at a much faster pace.|
|Primal Mastery||You can switch and reload bows and slingshots faster than before.|
Grapple is great for saving time as you can climb areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. Sneaky Sprint is perfect for stealth as is Ghost. Primal Mastery is also amazing as you have access to the bow at an early stage whereas silenced handguns are unlocked much later. Primal Mastery will allow you to fit in with the stealth outfit of the class much easier.

|Heavy Ammo Bag||You can carry more ammo for your heavy weapons e.g flamethrower and LMGs.|
|Special Ammo Bag||You can carry more ammo for your special rocket launcher and incendiaries.|
|Throwables Bag||You can carry more explosives and throwing knives with you.|
It is best to get Journey since you can easily carry all of your items with you.

This will allow you to attempt levels whichever way you want to.
