Far Cry New Dawn Specialists: all Guns and Fangs for Hire and where to find them

Each AI-powered companion adds a new dimension to your post-apocalyptic adventure. Here's how to unlock them

Wondering where all the Far Cry New Dawn Specialists are? You’re going to need them; Hope County has changed since you last visited. There’s nothing like a good nuclear apocalypse to, err, breathe life and colour back into a place. Between liberating outposts from the brutal Highwaymen and the constant grind for ethanol – for fuel, we promise – it can be a pretty dangerous place. That said, there are some new friends and familiar faces to help you out whenever you need them.

There are eight Far Cry New Dawn Specialists to recruit in Hope County and they are just as colourful as the landscape. There’s an angry Pastor who has converted to a the more violent creed of the berserker, a mysterious masked hunter, and a granny with a sniper rifle. What’s more, they unlock perks when they get 15 and 40 kills, so it pays to stick with them at least until then.

When it comes to Far Cry 5’s Specialists, you needed to complete certain missions to unlock them. Most likely this is the case here, but we’ll have to wait until the Far Cry New Dawn release date to know that for sure. Until then, here are the Far Cry New Dawn Guns and Fangs for Hire that can join you on your violent, post-apocalyptic romp.
