For example, some rifles have the ability to fire a single bullet, a burst of three, or convert to fully automatic fire with each pull of the trigger.

How to get more Supremo and Resolver weapons

Supremo and Resolver weapons can give you the advantage in battle. However, unlike the other guns you find scattered throughout Yara, these two types of weapons aren’t as easy to find.

As part of the game’s progression system, you must rank up to unlock new Supremo and Resolver weapons. By completing missions, you gain experience points that contribute to your character’s rank. With each new level, you gain the opportunity to craft a new set of Supremo and Resolver weapons.

These powerful weapons require large chunks of depleted uranium to craft that you get for completing important missions.

Don’t forget your Amigos and their abilities

Amigos in Far cry 6 are animal companions that help you in battle. Each specializes in a unique way. So as you recruit more, you can use them in different scenarios.

While each Amigo has immediate use in combat, they can also acquire abilities over time. Most of their new talents are passively unlocked as you use them, while others require your contribution.
