There are a wide variety of animals in Far Cry 4, from Asian Rhinos and Mugger Crocodiles to Bengal Tigers and Brown Bears.  Some quietly go about their business, galloping through forests and snacking on grass, while others attempt to rip Ajay Ghale’s face off.  There are no penalties for killing these critters, especially when it comes to crafting.  In fact, Ubisoft based a huge chunk of the game’s crafting system on animal hides, and encourages you to slaughter specific creatures to enhance Ajay’s equipment.

While the game specifically lists all of the “ingredients” necessary for crafting a bigger wallet, syringe kit and ammo bag, it helps to have a quick resource so you don’t have to constantly flip through inventory screens. With that in mind, this Far Cry 4 crafting guide lists everything you need to carry more money, weapons and ammo. In addition, we list the different plans necessary for creating syringes to boost Ajay’s abilities, imbuing him with super speed on land and in the water. Just be sure to inject one syringe at a time and wait until the effects wear off before using another one. In addition, upgrade whenever possible. You'll go from 30 seconds of power to 170 seconds!
