Far Cry 6 amigos – which companions can you recruit?

Every companion you can recruit in Far Cry 6

ChicharrĂ³n, the punk rooster, in Far Cry 6

Looking for more information on the Far Cry 6 companions? Once you get your hands on Far Cry 6, and you become part of the revolution in Yara seeking liberation from the Castillo family, you won’t travel across the island’s jungles, beaches, and cities alone.

Like the Guns for Hire and Fangs for Hire system in previous games, companions are available in Far Cry 6. Known as amigos, these animals can be called upon to assist you in battle, alongside the powerful Far Cry 6 weapons at your disposal.

There are five Far Cry 6 amigos that are unlocked throughout the campaign. Each of them has a unique way to help you out in battle. They also all have abilities that can be unlocked to improve their combat skills – all you need to do is use the amigo in battle. Each amigo specialises in two different areas: combat and stealth. Depending on your playstyle, you may want to switch to a different amigo. Using a combat amigo while you’re trying to avoid combat can get you in trouble if you’re not careful.
