The release of Far Cry 5 is quickly approaching, and there is a lot of content to look forward to. From fighting a fanatical cult exploring in the open world, Ubisoft is packing a lot into its next major release. One big feature of Far Cry 5 are the Guns for Hire, which are people — and animals — you can team up with for missions and exploration. Watch the above video for an introduction to all the Guns for Hire, or read on for a rundown of them and their unique abilities.
Nick Rye “The King of the Skies”
- Strafing runs
- Bomb drops
Jess Black “The Master Huntress”
- Sneak attacks
- Animals won’t attack her
Hurk Drubman Jr. “Just Dangerously Stupid”
- Explosive vehicle shots
- Track air and land vehicles
Adelaide Drubman “The Chopper Queen”

Sharky Boshaw “The Pyrotechnics Phenom”

On top of the featured Guns for Hire, there are also more Fangs for Hire. According to Ubisoft, players can have animal companions that “can enhance whatever playstyle you choose.” Ubisoft has only shown dogs as the Fangs for Hire, but maybe we’ll get to work with even more types of good boys. If you want a more personal experience in Far Cry 5, you can also play with a friend in two-player co-op, which works across all campaign missions.
No matter your playstyle, you will find a willing companion to take on that fanatical religious cult with. Or you can go about it solo with the array of weapons and guns the game has to offer. The choice is yours.
Far Cry 5 releases on March 27th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
