Far Cry New Dawn - How to Get the Giant Boar

Far Cry New Dawn To Love a Boar Mission, Horatio Location

You’ll be offered missions by NPCs once you’ve liberated an Outpost. One of these side missions is “To Love a Boar”. It’s the one that leads to Horatio, so be sure to keep an ear out for it.

Lucky for you, saving Horatio is an absolute cakewalk. Just head to the location shown in the image above, and search the nearby building for a note.

The note will explain that Horatio is being hidden in a nearby shed. Best get moving then!

Head into the shed and pet Horatio. This will add him to your roster.

Far Cry New Dawn Horatio Abilities

Horatio can be a real asset in a firefight. He has some seriously impressive abilities, which we’ve detailed below:

  • Shield Break - When Horatio charges someone with a shield, he will knock it from their grasp.
  • Pig’s Endurance - When Horatio is down, he gets back on his feet without your help.
  • Porcine Fury - In a fit of rage, Horatio destroys everything in his path.

How to Upgrade Horatio in Far Cry New Dawn

You’ll need to rack up kills with Horatio in order to level him up. He’ll need 15 kills to get to level 2, and then 40 to get to level 3. This will mean he has access to all of his abilities, making him much more useful.
