Far Cry 6 patch 1.09 notes – March 22, 2021

Gameplay updates:

  • Ammunition Swapping
    • Players are now able to swap ammunition types for weapons via the weapon wheel (can be key bound on PC) without having to visit a workbench (you will need to have the ammunition type unlocked previously).
  • Introducing Loadouts
    • Players will have the ability to create and modify 4 loadouts. The loadouts include sets of weapons and gear that can now be easily swapped via the arsenal menu for adapting to any situation.
      • Loadouts unlock after the Libertad Rises mission.
  • Outpost resets
    • Once players finish the Far Cry 6 main campaign, they will gain the ability to abandon previously secured FND Bases.
      • Players can hover any completed FND Base and have an additional option available: Abandon FND Base.
      • Abandoning the FND Base reverts it to Military control. The FND Base is then available for the player to tackle again.
      • Abandoning the FND Base increases the level of enemies inside the FND Base to Player Level +4.
      • After abandoning the FND Base, the rewards offered are increased, granting additional Moneda.
  • New difficulty mode: Guerrilla Mode
    • Overall combat difficulty is increased (including AI detection and reaction to the player).
    • Ammo, gadget counts, and pickups have been reduced.
    • Major UI/HUD elements are disabled when you start Guerrilla Mode, which will test your skill and cunning. (To ensure the games’ accessibility levels remains high, the options can be turned on again via the settings menu).
    • Guerilla Mode requires a new game start, and you are not able to reduce the difficulty once you have started Guerilla Mode.

· Fixed an issue that could cause players to get stuck and not be able to move if they triggered the cinematic during the “Blood Ties” mission while being in a helicopter.
· Fixed an issue that could cause a Snowshoe-D15BE00A when matchmaking into co-op, leaving the co-op session and immediately matchmaking for co-op again.
· Fixed several localization, grammar, and subtitle issues.
· Adjusted enemy respawn for the Acunana Farmland, Cayo Villa Real and Tabacco Valley areas to reduce the likelihood of enemies respawning too quickly.

Vaas: Insanity

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the host to be stuck in a black screen after pressing “Save and Quit” in the final scoreboard.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the “Self-Help”, “Dear Diary” and “Freudian Field Day” achievements to not correctly unlock after meeting the required conditions.


  • HD Texture Pack — Some assets appearing blurry

Developer comment:We have made some changes for the HD Texture Pack on PC that should decrease the blurriness that appeared for some players when using the HD Texture Pack. When looking into these reports, we are seeing players using graphics cards with less than 12 GB of VRAM available. When using the HD Texture Pack with less than the minimum required VRAM available, the performance and the look of the game can be worse than without the pack.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the “Aim Type” and “Weapon Wheel Interaction” options to reset to default when restarting the game.


  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Vaas: Insanity DLC to become unavailable when signing-out and signing-in to the same Xbox Live profile.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to constantly be prompted with a “Quit Game” message after restarting from Rest mode.

Xbox One

  • Fixed an issue that could cause weapons and weapon attachments to disappear.

Xbox Series X|S

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Menu cursor to get stuck on screen when opening the military escalation popup after loading a save.
