Show me a game with currency and I’ll show you a game where players want to earn it fast. In Far Cry 5, the currency doesn’t have a fancy name, it’s just money, but you’ll need it if you wish to improve your arsenal of weapons, vehicles, aircraft, and helicopters. Luckily, I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Far Cry 5 and have zeroed in on three ways that you can earn money fast in Hope County.
Before you begin, know that you can sell items to the various vendors you’ll come across as you travel Hope County in Far Cry 5. When you first meet a vendor, look for the option to sell loot in their menu. It’s here that you can trade your goods for cash, increasing the amount of you can spend on toys and devices of destruction.
Earn Money Fast in Far Cry 5
One way earn money is to visit every location you can in Far Cry 5 and thoroughly loot it. Not only will you find loose cash sitting about, but you’ll also find lots of prepper stashes. These will each contain hundreds of dollars, and often there will be a safe inside. Inside these safes will be money and possibly Silver Bars.
Hunting is one of the best ways to earn cash fast in Far Cry 5, but you can’t hunt if you fast travel everywhere. Take a walk off the beaten path and use the Compound Bow to hunt any animal you see. Skins for animals like bears and bison are going to fetch more than a skunk, but no amount of money is too small to make a difference. If you’re not sure where to begin, though, read our guide on how to go hunting in Far Cry 5. Consider unlocking the Harvest Master perk from the Survivalist tree for eight perk points, giving you double the loot from plants and animals.
Finally, players can earn money fast but putting their efforts into learning how to fish in Far Cry 5. Like hunting, vendors will buy these fish from you for a decent sum of cash, allowing you to make the coin you require by spending some peaceful time with Hope County’s rivers and lakes. Invest in the Fisher King perk, though, since that will unlock more flies and allow you to catch heavier, and thus more valuable, fish. To be honest, though, I find fishing a bit slower for earning cash than hunting.
Now that you have a few ideas of how to make money fast, spent some additional time reading through the Far Cry 5 walkthrough and guide on Shacknews. You’ll learn all you need to about Hope County, Eden’s Gate, and what to expect along the path.
