'Far Cry 5' Animals: How to Get Boomer, Cheeseburger & Peaches From Fangs For Hire Gang

Far Cry 5 is full of animals, and you can use some of them to tackle missions and clear outposts. In this quick guide, we'll tell you how to get Boomer the dog, Cheeseburger the bear and Peaches the mountain lion.


Like all Guns For Hire, Boomer's mission is very clearly marked on the starting map with an icon of his adorable face. Mark the Rae Rae's Pumpkin Farm icon in John's region and head over there. When you do, you'll start the "Man's Best Friend" quest. There are cult guards in the area, so use your binoculars to highlight them and then take them out however you like. You can use a stealthy approach if you prefer, but this is an easy guns-blazing fight. The only real concern is one specially marked target that can potentially summon reinforcements

When you get to the quest marker, shoot open the cage door and Boomer will help you deal with any enemies in the area. Once that's done, go over and pet Boomer. He's your buddy for life.

Before you can get Cheeseburger, you must clear the F.A.N.G. Center outpost that's visibly marked on the starter map. You also need to learn the basics of fishing. After that, talk to a beanie-wearing NPC in the area named Wade Fowler. He'll introduce you to the "Right To Bear Arms" quest.

The first step is to find some salmon, which you can get from a dock north of the Lansdowne Airstrip. No other location will do. Just wait it out, and you'll eventually get a nibble.

Fish in hand, go to Linero Building Supplies (near Fort Drubman) and get ready for a small fight towards the outer edge of the establishment. There are three guards here that you can easily dispatch by ramming a truck into them. Cheeseburger is on the water's edge. Drop the fish, and you'll make him very happy.

Cult members give it one last push, but you should have no problem pushing through them with Cheeseburger's help.


  • Bear Arms: does a strong attack
  • Cross to Bear: Distracts enemies in ambushes


Visit the Peaches Taxidermy icon marked on the starter map to meet Miss Mable, an older woman with short, gray hair. She'll ask you to find her kitty and give you treats to help locate the animal. To equip them, open your weapon wheel and scroll through the "Projectiles" section.

A waypoint will guide you to a nearby camp with bodies on the ground. You may need to kill a few stragglers, but once you do, simply make a trail of treats back to the starting location of the mission. You'll want to keep Peaches about 20 meters away and shoot any wolves you may encounter along the way. Just before you get to a bridge, take out your binocs and mark the enemies. Take them out.

When you reach your destination, you'll have to dispatch a small group of cult members. You can deal with them yourself, or lure Peaches into the area with meat and let the little kitty run wild. Once everything cams down, speak to Mable to finish the mission.
