This week's Far Cry 5 live event rewards you for playing in Arcade Mode, but maybe you're just getting started and you have no idea where to look. Fortunately, we have you covered. Our latest look at the best Arcade maps with Jacob Dekker and Joey Yee highlight some of the community's coolest creations.
It starts with Assault Garage, a well-designed map without a lot of bells, whistles, or gimmicks. Sometimes you just want to play Far Cry 5 to get more sandbox combat action, and this one delivers. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Shovel Souls. This map pays homage to Dark Souls with limited weaponry and even a tough boss fight. A Portal-inspired puzzle parkour challenge tests the limits of first-person precision jumping. It all wraps up with Favre Town, a nicely expansive map that explores two separate locations.
It's a nice mix that shows the flexibility of Far Cry 5's map editing tools. If you play these stages (or any others) for 40 minutes by April 17, you'll have completed the "Arcade Dawn" event. Your reward for participating is a Vector .45 ACP, and the Community Reward is a matching Arcade Pro outfit. As usual, you'll also get Silver Bars for progression through the live event.
