far cry 5

Released on Mar 27, 2018, Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 has received good reception. This guide is about how to get Resistance Points in Far Cry 5. It is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Just like previous Far Cry games, this too is an open world game where you are free to roam around and explore. You can do your exploration on foot or in vehicles available. When players complete actions within a region, they acquire “Resistance Points”. These in turn help trigger major story events.

To liberate the three major regions from the control of their respective tyrants, you need to build up Resistance Points. You can get these points by performing different activities in the game. Gaining these points increases your overall Resistance level. This guide will show how to build up Resistance Points in the game.

Far Cry 5 Guide: How To Get Resistance Points

Here is a brief list on how to build resistance points in Far Cry 5.

  1. Complete missions
  2. Liberate a cult outpost
  3. Destroy cult property
  4. Kill a cult VIP (special symbol above their head)
  5. Capture trucks
  6. Free hostages
  7. Help resistance members
  8. Help civilians

Each of the three major regions in the game – John’s region, Jacob’s region and Faith’s region has its own set of missions with cult outposts to destroy, cult properties to tear apart and specialists to recruit. You need to reach at least Resistance Level 4 in any region to be able to liberate it. The best way to gain these points is by liberating cult outposts.

These are enemy strongholds crawling with cultists and if you go in all guns blazing, reinforcements will be summoned, making the fight more tough. If you can liberate the outpost without raising the alarm, you get more money and XP. Be stealthy for this. Stay crouched in bushes and tall grass as much as possible. Use melee takedowns on enemies. Be careful not to let other enemies spot the body of the dead one, else they will actively start looking for you. Disable alarms to guarantee that reinforcements won’t arrive.

Liberating outposts in this game the stealthy way isn’t as easy as in previous titles so you will have to be quite good at it. Pay attention to the white and black curve bars always to see the enemies’ detection level. Jess Black and Peaches The Cat are good recruits who remain stealthy so if you have recruited them, use them. That’s all about Far Cry 5 how to get Resistance Points.
