Far Cry 6 100% Completed Save File
If you’re a veteran Far Cry player, you’ll know how 100% completed files are used to insert in your game directory and play the version of Far Cry 6 with all progress unlocked.
However, if you’re playing Far Cry 6, you won’t be able to swap in a 100% Completed file as game saves are tied to each person’s Uplay account now. When you try to load someone else’s Save file, the game refuses to recognize it, even in offline mode.
A completionist run of Far Cry 6 takes about 44 hours to complete, making Save file backups extremely valuable in case you lose all that grind to a mishap!
