really like the look of the guide and all the information provided. i do think though that for the 'DERP' achievement it should be sorted so the intended method is listed first, then the alternative. hud even tells you when its about to happen.
also with the collectibles, you should provide more information as to when each of the maps become available, what it takes to unlock them, and what area each map covers and the fact that you can mark each collectible with a waypoint. every other achievement is full of this kinda info.

Thanks Nugs, I'll edit up the descriptions later tonight when I get home.

Is it possible to miss anything? I know it says 0 in the roadmap, but just making sure. I don't want to worry about collectables right now.

Ok I'm having some trouble here.

At the first garrison I tried killing the dragon with the bow and it failed. The first time the fucking scientists killed it, so I tried to kill them all but they infinitely respawn. Then I tried again and got the dragon back outside the barrier and then ran out of explosives. The vendor wasn't working.

Figured ok, I need to go inside to Darling and finish the mission, or so I thought. Did that, and then came back out the the stupid dragon disappeared. The vendor was there now and I magically got ALL my weapons back!?

Now I thought to myself, I'll do it later and now I'm going to get Running Man. Well there is no dragon around and now it's forcing me to do a hostage rescue that I don't want to do right now! On top of that it seems like I am always in a mission and still haven't saved my game.

Am I overreacting? Do I need to just play and then get them later? I keep thinking I'm going to miss something or a good spot to do it.

The guide makes it out like you can do those at the VERY first garrison, but how!?

Yeah don't worry about it. While it's possible to do in the first Garrison I had the same thing happen to me with him disappearing. You will have plenty of opportunities for everything, especially since you'll have to kill 25 dragons for another achievement. All of these achievements are very easy and almost unmissable.

You have plenty of opportunities to try again later. It's completely possible to do it at the first garrison after you save the lady doctor, just like the video shows. But if you can't get it then, you can do it a later time.

I personally didn't do it at the first garrison. I simply found a Blood Dragon at the 5th garrison I liberated and used the method of staying inside the outpost to kill the Dragon.

I got it all sorted now. I went out and found a wild dragon and got Running Man, then went to try to kill it with a Bow but the bastard killed me, plus there were random soldiers coming from all directions.

When I went back to the checkpoint, there was a new dragon that respawned outside the first garrison. Did the barrier trick and got them no problem, but it took me like 30 arrows, no joke. I didn't want to screw up and shoot it too much with guns and kill it by accident. I know one thing, the bow SUCKS on dragons lol.

Also is there a way to turn off that TV/VHS line effect on the screen? It bothers the hell out of me sorta. I can deal with it, but it's kinda annoying. I liked the ads being like VHS style, but why is the game that way too? lol

But I love the game. 10/10 for sure.

Apologies if it's been said, but for the dragon boosting you don't need to quit to the menu. You need to find a way to die and then just fast travel back to the garrison. Easiest way is to find a group of scientists and kill three of them, that 'kills' you and resets the dragon spawn.

Edit: Scratch that, it resets the spawn but the kills don't seem to count towards the achievement, very odd.

The only True Stopper

As the roadmap says that the Mad Scientists with the shotgun,knife etc. It states that you can only get it in ch6 well during the last part of the game you have to fight some scientists. That is where I got the achievement.

Just in case any one was having problems with it

Getting yourself killed takes longer than exiting to the main menu anyways lol.

I found a snake location that seems permanent. I've gone past it at least a half dozen different times tonight after dying/reloading the game/fast traveling. The coordinates are around X:541.8, Y:484.6. It is in the grass a foot or two off the off road on the river side of the road.

There also seems to be a snake spawn at about X:473.5, Y:474.5. And at X:474.7, Y:465.0. These are much less consistent than the first one I posted.

I'll add in the first set of coordinates to the guide! Thanks, Hunter!

No problem! Figured that would make it easier than having to search all over the place for a snake.

cash

as users keep posting about not having enough cash by the end, i think that you should add some instructions to the guide so that users know to start hunting the collectibles and collecting the cash from boxes right away. there is always loads of cash laying around the collectibles, people must just be passing it be cause they seem to be far along in the game without enough cash. also the auto loot upon a takedown gave me a huge bump in cash.
im not trying to brag but i was actively trying to spend all my cash and still had 13k when i was complete. maybe also mention that you dont need to buy med packs because the y button will heal you anyway.

You have to buy them (or find them to pick up) if you run out of them. You only carry 3 at a time.

I think he's talking about the skill you earn that lets you do it. In Far Cry 3 it was a skill that let you heal without actually using medpacks. You would do an animation where you bandaged yourself up or relocated your joints in your hand. It didn't fill you up completely but it did help.

I don't think that exists in this game. I am level 30, finished with the story, and it still uses med packs or whatever you want to call them when I heal.

sure it does and there is 3 or 4 really cool animations of sgt colt fixing his cyborg arm or digging bullets out of the human arm. i was buyiing med packs anyway as i had plenty of cash but i guess im just more thorough then most as i spent 10:37 in game and had over 13k when i was complete.
