Far Cry 5 is without a doubt the biggest Far Cry game of all time, not only in the scope and detail of its in-game world, but in the number of its title. But let’s forget about the sizable arsenal of weapons at your disposal that are capable of leveling, what a coincidence, an entire county. Can You Beat Far Cry 5 With Only A Shovel?

Can You Beat Far Cry 5 With Only A Shovel? (in text form)
After picking the easiest difficulty and realizing that I would be playing as one of those guys from the Create-A-Moveset part of the old Smackdown vs Raw games, the Long Distance Wailing begins with a cutscene showing found footage of Joseph Seed gouging some lucky guy’s eyes out, then we fly towards the church with a cliche group of characters: the woman pilot, the mustachioed sheriff who was about to retire, the no-nonsense US Marshal, and myself, the Rookie. For the first time in video game history, the characters I had to follow moved as fast or faster than me, we tried to arrest Joseph, things went sideway, including the silver chariot we rode in on, I escaped into the woods, picked up a stick, and we enter combat for the first time. I decided right now, in the past, that until I got to a point in the game where I could get a shovel, I’d just use any melee weapon. Realistically, this is just a more restricted version of a melee-only playthrough. In fact, as I would learn later, the shovel is actually more powerful than the baseball bat or pipe.
I found the Marshal in a house out in the woods, he said some profanities that I might have to censor, he tossed me a gun, and my heart sank. Just like in Far Cry 3, you can’t get rid of weapons. You can swap them out, but you can’t completely remove the Assault Rifle or pistol from your inventory. But, at the very least, you can keep your melee weapons equipped, so you never really have to worry about accidentally firing a gun. Turns out that even on the easiest difficulty, this introductory combat sequence was more than enough to best me. Even the guys you fight here are capable of rapidly draining your health. If you’re looking for a lighthearted way to stroll through Far Cry 5, this is not it. Once the cultists were dealt with, the Marshal and I escaped, I temporarily self-imposed some realism on myself by pretending I couldn’t hear what the Marshal was shouting at me because of all the gunfire. Let me put that another way, I didn’t shoot anyone while I was riding shotgun.
We rode off into the sunset, he got swindled, as did I, and I woke up tied to a bed with a bald man. Sometimes I have dreams about this sorta thing, except he’s not [some santa reference]. He explained that the Cult formed by Joseph Seed, micromanaged by Jacob Seed, John Seed, and Faith Seed, had taken over Hope County. That’s what we call an ironism. The Seeds think they’re spreading their infectious hope seed in hope county, but they’re not. Before heading topside, I snagged myself a Shovel, did not much else, and the real Far Cry 5 began. The first task is to liberate Dutch from the cultists so his radio can reach resistance fighters across the county.
