Far Cry 5 Live Event Guide: Everything You Need to Know About the Explosion Hazard Event

The latest Far Cry 5 event includes both a personal goal and a community goal which must be completed by June 12. The event requires players to kill Cultists with indirect explosions, so throwing a grenade at a Cultist isn't going to cut it. You'll have to lure enemies over to explosive barrels or blow up nearby cars to rack up these kills.
