It has been 4 years since Far Cry 5 was released and so far it is one of the best installments in the franchise along with Far Cry 3 and the rogue like expansions of Far Cry 6. This installment is completely away from the latest Ubisoft trend with the most of his deliveries: more and more RPG. Levels, enemies that are bullet sponges, a thousand skills and more.
the gunplay of Far Cry 5 it resembles what was seen in Ghost Recon, for example, killing enemies (and dying at their hands) does not require too many bullets. Hitting a headshot is death in most cases, and taking one gets you one foot in Valhalla. All this without hitmarkers, only the sound of the impact of the projectile.
This makes Far Cry 5 Have some of the most fun and frenetic gameplay in the franchise, whether in stealth or open combat. His arsenal lends itself to it. And speaking of weapons, there is still one that was and is above the rest: la pala.
Far Cry 5’s shovel: a weapon of mass destruction and endless laughs
They say that happiness is in simplicity. I say “amen” to that. the shovel of Far Cry 5 it’s a completely unbalanced weapon, deadly as a cannon at point-blank range and fun as a squirt gun in summer. You can use it as a melee weapon both in stealth and in combat.
Its peculiarity (and that of some melee weapons) is that you can throw it at your enemies and pick it up. The character throws the shovel like a javelin and stabs the enemy, dealing insane damage. If you do it from close, you can pin an enemy to the wall. I won’t even tell you if you hit him directly in the head.
The best thing about the process is not killing the enemy, but the dry noise that is heard when the metal area of the shovel hits the enemy’s head. I think only The Last of Us Part 2 has managed to do such a good hit and headshot effect. Sound, not effect.

Ubisoft’s delusion goes further when you progress through the story and come across one of the special weapons: a paddle thrower. A rocket launcher that launches blades. “An innovative miracle of modern engineering,” says the description of it. That thing should be illegal and at the same time it should be in every game. Add that the shovel has a smiling emoji drawn on it and… the joke tells itself.
The Shovel Launcher kills most enemies in one shot. It doesn’t matter where it hits: the poor devil goes flying 10-20 meters or is cruelly impaled against any nearby structure, be it a building, a tree… If you get a collateral shot, the wonder is multiplied x2.
In case you are interested, the normal shovel can be found anywhere: they are lying around the map and you can buy them from the vendors. The Shovel Launcher is obtained by completing the “Turn Necks” event. Finally, I remind you that Far Cry 5 recently arrived at Microsoft’s Game Pass service, in addition to being available for PS4 and PS5.
