'Far Cry 5' Secret Ending: How To Beat the Latest 'Far Cry' Game in Minutes

Far Cry 5 has a secret ending that can be seen within the first few minutes of starting a campaign. Like Far Cry 4 before it, all players have to do to unlock the alternate ending is not follow instructions. Just sit and watch and soon the closing credits will be rolling before you even kill your first cultist.

How To Unlock Far Cry 5 Secret Alternative Ending

The Far Cry 5 secret ending can be unlocked once players enter the cultists' church during the opening sequence. Once inside, players will be prompted to press A/X to handcuff Joseph Seed. If you want to see the alternate ending, don't press the button. Keep waiting while your partners shout at you to just put the handcuffs on. After about a minute or two of waiting, the sheriff with the great mustache will poke his head into the frame and tell everyone to give up and just go home.

The game ends with the lawmen walking away from the cult, and the credits roll shortly after. That's it! To see the secret ending in full, watch the video above.

Far Cry 4 vs Far Cry 5 Secret Endings

The secret ending of Far Cry 5 isn't quite as dramatic as the one for Far Cry 4. The previous game saw players actually teaming up with Pagan Min, the game's main villain, to fly off into the sunset and shoot rebels. It also took a number of minutes to actually unlock, but Far Cry 5 has thankfully reduced most of the waiting time to see its secret ending.

There is another way to see the credits without technically beating Far Cry 5, which is right at the end. I won't spoil that ending yet, but players will be put in a similar situation from the start, and given another choice. We'll discuss the Far Cry 5 ending and explain its meaning in a different article, once players have had a chance to play the game, so be sure to check back with us soon.
