How to Craft Explosives in Far Cry 5

In Far Cry 5 you can craft explosives, which comes in very handy while you're out and about taking on the cult and the many dangerous wild animals. We've listed the craftable explosives for you just below.

To access the crafting menu, bring up your weapon wheel then highlight the bottom left or bottom right options, then use the directional pad/buttons to scroll through the options. Items that can be crafted will be noted.

  • Molotov - 2x Liquor + 2x Fasteners
  • Remote Explosive - 2x Fasteners + 2x Nitro + 2x Blasting Cap
  • Proximity Explosive - 2x Casing + 2x Nitro + 2x Blasting Cap
  • Dynamite - 2x Fasteners + 2x Casing + 2x Nitro

How to Craft Homeopathics in Far Cry 5

You might not be aware of this as Far Cry 5 does a pretty terrible job of explaining it, but you can craft and use four homeopathic remedies. Using these gives your character a temporary boost in a certain area or gives a short-lived new ability. We've detailed the four below. You can access these from page 2 of the weapon wheel, each needing a bunch of ingredients to craft.

The Furious

  • Increases melee attack damage for a limited time
  • 2x Bliss Oil
  • 2x Prairie Fire

The Fast

  • Increases your speed for a limited time.
  • 2x Bliss Oil
  • 2x Jimson Weed

Ultimate Hunter

  • Automatically tag all animals and enemies in your sight and make the predator flee.
  • 2x Prairie Fire
  • 2x Mustard
  • 2x Jimson Weed

Ultimate Survivor

  • Reduce considerably the damage you take.
  • 2x Lupine
  • 2x Prickly Lettuce
  • 2x Bliss Oil

You can also craft liquor and 'oregano', each giving you temporary innebreation. You can craft them from the same menu as the homeopathics, but each only takes one item (liquor or oregano) to craft.

Can you Craft Medkits in Far Cry 5?

It's pretty easy to take a lot of damage in Far Cry 5, so you'll be wanting to make use of medkits. With that being said, you'd assume you're able to craft medkits in Far Cry 5, but you can't. It's not possible to craft medkits in Far Cry 5, which is pretty bizarre. Medkits can be bought from shops/sellers, or found lying around in the game world, but can't be crafted.

That's all the info we've got on crafting explosives and homeopathics in Far Cry 5. Head elsewhere for info on how to recruit boomer the dog, and how to find all the Prepper Stash locations in Far Cry 5.

    For the Lansdowne Airstrip prepper stash, climb the radio tower nearby with the grapple hook and wingsuit+parachute to the hangar roof.

    For “Hangar Pains” there is another way to get on top the hangar. It requires the grappling hook and the wing suit.

    Climb the radio tower near the hangar. When you get to the top it gives you just enough room to sprint and jump towards the hangar. Immediately open the wing suit (L3 on PS4 by default) and glide over. Honestly, it might be easier to just get a helicopter. It is a fun little challenge though. And if you’re already in that area and don’t want to go get a helicopter and come back it’s another option.

    Thank you very much for your straight-forward guide. I probably spent 3-4 hours looking for the silo @ Holland Valley Station - yours is the only guide that had a decent map AND good description of where to go. You allowed me to complete the quest finally! Thanks so much.

    You can find the Arctic Grayling Salmon (Hard) right above Rattlesnake Trail Bridge. It's in Jacob's Region north of the Grand View Hotel. I don't know if this fish is on the fishing record. I just didn't think I saw it on the list. Maybe someone might need it lol, maybe not!Edited April 2018 by jbrad

    There are 10 Cheeseburger bobble heads. You claim there are only 8, and then only give 7 locations.
