Our Far Cry 5 Vietnam Lighters Guide provides information and clear instructions for collecting the Vietnam Lighters in order to complete the side mission titled ‘What They Carried’.

Far Cry 5 Vietnam Lighters

East of Fall’s End is a residence named Redler Residence. Here you will find Wendell Redler. Talking to him will trigger the ‘What They Carried’ side-quest and will task you with finding all the Vietnam Lighters in the game.

According to Wendell Redler, these lighters will hold the key to unlocking a weapon cache which he has stashed somewhere.

Some codes are inscribed below each lighter and together they will help Redler unlock the weapon chest. After acquiring the quest, purchase the maps for locations of the Vietnam Lighters.

In Jacob’s region, head west of Cedar Lake to find an underground bunker. Enter it and collect the first lighter from the shelf that stands there near two blue barrels.

Whitetail Park Visitor Center

If you already haven’t carried out one of the rescue-hostages quest here, you will need to do that first. After doing so, you need to head upstairs and turn left and head to the information center. Enter the second room on the left, you will find the lighter on a shelf.

Elliot Residence
Region: Whitetail Mountains
This lighter will be affiliated with the ‘Holdouts Pepper Stash’ mission. The residence is located south of the F.A.N.G. You need to jump onto the second level of the building, the place where the barbed wire is broken.

You need to follow these instructions closely: jump from the window and into a bathroom. Then from the window here, walk along the roof and use the window to drop down into the building.

Move downstairs and into the kitchen. At the feet of a dead body (presumably), you will find a key card!

Collecting this will trigger a hoard of enemies firing at your including explosives to set the building on fire.

Head to the barn shed with the American flag, and enter the bunker inside it. Shoot down the lock on the stash and use the key card you acquired to unlock entrance to the main section of the bunker. Collect the lighter situated on the bench.

Go inside to grab the lighter off the shelves in the second room.
