Many readers would likely argue that Vaas was the greatest Far Cry villain and no game after Far Cry 3 had a villain that compares. What many forget, is Vaas suffered the same fate. His character is undeniably brilliant and the definition of insanity speech is one of the most iconic in video game history. Even so, not long after this scene, Vaas dies and is succeeded by his boss Hoyt, a villain often forgotten for good reason. The untimely death of Vaas well before the game's conclusion leads to a confusing and dull second half that prevents Vaas from cementing his place as gaming's most iconic villain. Pagan Min of Far Cry 4 also gets far less screen time than deserved. Many of his best witty quips are reduced to environmental audio monologues that are only triggered if the player spends enough time exploring. Pagan Min is also one of few bad guys who is not necessarily a bad guy, and the developer could have done much more to showcase his uniquely fabulous brand of evil.

Far Cry New Dawn introduces the twins, Mickey and Lou. When first introduced, they greet players with a typically violent display and engaging dialogue that fans of the franchise are familiar with. However, they are different from other Far Cry villains in that they have each other, creating an intriguing on-screen dynamic. What makes the dynamic so fascinating is that Mickey is not as evil as Lou. With the exception of the final battle, Mickey is never once violent on screen.

Players are given a brief insight into the twins’ past through a flashback to better understand them in the present. Their father was a violent man and, in this flashback, players see Mickey promise their mother that they will not end up like him. This promise has clearly impacted her behaviour as, at the game’s conclusion, Mickey references the conversation with her mother, both demonstrating regret and offering an explanation regarding her passive nature.

Just like in Far Cry 5, you'll first need to recruit the Guns for Hire via side missions. Most of these side missions can be gotten from NPCs in outposts and within Prosperity itself. Once you have the mission, complete it to successfully recruit your new ally to help you out in battle. The Repair Torch perk is the second icon from the left on the top row. However, you'll notice it requires 3 Perk Points in order to unlock. Perk Points can be unlocked by completing missions in Far Cry New Dawn, as well as taking on Challenges, which can be checked from the Challenges tab just next to the Perks menu.

Luckily, this doesn't mean they're out of the fight for good. After being taken down, players have a small window of opportunity to revive them and bring them back into the fray. You'll know this window is still open so long as there is a blue meter above their heads with a white meter around it draining slowly. If you reach them before this meter depletes, a prompt to press the Square button on PlayStation 4 or the X button on Xbox One should pop up. Hold it down and your ally should be revived after a few seconds. After Far Cry 3, players were optimistic to assume Ubisoft would correct its mistakes, but every game leads to the same disappointment. Hopefully the next Far Cry installment will learn from its past errors and smother the player with the witty dialogue and abundant violence they deserve.
