Every Far Cry game has offered players unique modes of transportation. However, Far Cry 6 kicks this up a notch by allowing players to ride horses, similar to how you could ride beasts in Far Cry Primal. In this guide, we will show you how to unlock Horses in Far Cry 6 and how to ride them across Yara.
How to Unlock Horses in Far Cry 6
There are various ways in which you can unlock horses in Far Cry 6. There are tamed horses as well as wild horses in the game, which are comparatively difficult to get.
Horses are essential for various reasons in Far Cry 6. The most crucial reason you absolutely need these animals is that they are an excellent means of transportation.
Before you can use them, you’ll have to unlock them. A default horse breed can be found all around Yara, and these are saddled horses.
Then we have other species that you can unlock further on in the game as you progress. Below we have mentioned the various horses you can acquire in FC6 and how to ride them.
How to Ride a Horse
Riding a horse is very simple in Far Cry 6. All you need to do is approach the horse and press the E button if you’re on keyboard.
If you’re playing on Xbox then press and hold the X button. If you’re playing on PlayStation then press and hold the Square key.
The most common way to unlock horses is by scanning them through your mobile phones at different pickup points. Get close to a horse to be able to scan it and get information about its breed successfully.
Once you are done scanning, you’ll be able to summon them at Pickup Points. Although one thing that is worth mentioning is the fact that not all horses can be scanned, these horses usually belong to the military.
In order to unlock these types, you’ll have to hijack them or mount one of them and bring them to the nearest Pickup Point. Once you are done, this military breed of horses will be unlocked and available for you to summon and ride.
