Cheeseburger the Bear can be your not so friendly grizzly friend in Far Cry 5, but in order to get the diabetic bear (yes, he's diabetic) as part of your team you're going to have to go on a lengthy quest. In this Far Cry 5 Cheeseburger bear guide we'll explain how to get Cheeseburger in your roster of recruits and detail his special bear abilities.

If you're after Far Cry 5 help that isn't entirely to do with getting Cheeseburger as part of your team, head over to our Far Cry 5 guide hub. Over there you'll get info on getting various other specialists to join your gang, plus info on how to earn loads of money and find Silver Bars.

How to get Cheeseburger the Bear in Far Cry 5

As we mentioned, getting Cheeseburger the bear to be part of your team in Far Cry 5 isn't as easy as the tasks involved in getting the dog and cat companions. You're going to have to go on quite a journey to get Cheeseburger, but we've got all the details for you right here. First off, head to the F.A.N.G. Center in Jacob's Regions, northwest of the Baron Lumber Mill.

The F.A.N.G. Center is under cultist control, so when you arrive you'll need to liberate outpost. This is pretty tough, so we advise taking out as many enemies as possible while hidden. Reinforcements will be called if you cause too much of a scene, but it's still possible to prevail. If you feel overwhelmed by fire, head into the surrounding woodland and draw cultists to you, taking them out one by one.

When you've liberated the F.A.N.G. Center, talk to Wade (he'll pop up as a new character of note) and he'll tell you about Cheeseburger. He's been taken by the cultists, and it's now your job to find him. Wade tells you to get some salmon first, and obviously it's not as simple as buying some. You're going to have to go fishing.

Follow the quest marker and you'll reach a small river from which you can do some fishing. This is a nice change of pace, isn't it? How lovely. Cast your line out into the water and wait for a bite. Follow the game's on-screen instructions to catch the fish on your hook and reel it in. This took us some time, so be patient. Once you've landed the fish it's time to find Cheeseburger.

Head to Linero Building Supplies and take out the large group of cultists in the area. They've got Cheeseburger, and you can't get to him until they've all be dealt with. Once they are all dead, look around for Cheeseburger and you'll find him looking rather sad. Give him the salmon and suddenly he's your best friend. He darts off, but the cultists return and try to take him with them. Once again, kill the attacking enemies and then Cheeseburger will be added to your roster.

Far Cry 5 Cheeseburger the Bear Skills

With Cheeseburger recruited, he can now be assigned to one of your recruit slots (you start with one, but this can be upgraded to two with the Leadership Perk). Cheeseburger is obviously amazing in a fight (he's a bear), but he also has the skills we've listed below:

  • Bear Arms: Will exercise his right to attack
  • Cross to Bear: Will draw focus during combat

That's all the info you need to get Cheeseburger in Far Cry 5. If you want more specialists, check out our guides to getting Peaches in Far Cry 5 and getting Boomer 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.
