Wrist Gear

Fifteen Wishes

Since all purchases in-game require players to spend money they earn, Fifteen Wishes could be the wrist gear of your choice. The fashionable wear’s strength lies in close-range fights; rewarding stealthy players for performing takedowns. It can be found in “Passing the Torch” treasure hunt in Sierra Pedida.

Fuego Mitts

The mitts signature ability, Flame Retardant, is self-explanatory. The gloves protect you from normal fires in the game and can be collected as a part of a campaign mission, “Fire and Fury”.

Hazmat gloves MK II

The upgraded variant of the Hazmats works perfectly when paired with poison inflicting weapons. The “Snakebite” ability deals extra damage to poisoned enemies. Find MK II in North Armonia in chests.

Foot Gear

Dark Tech Boots

The boots are perfect for sneaky behind the enemies. They increase the movement speed for the player when crouched; making it easier to perform melees. Players can get these boots from Juan’s Arms Dealers for 700 Yaran Pesos.

Soft Target Boots

Another find at Juan’s Arms Dealers for 450 Pesos. These boots come in handy in sticky situations. They increase Dani’s stamina to a certain extent, allowing you to sprint for a little while longer if things get messy.

Head Gear

Street Surgeon Helmet 

The helmet improves the general defense of Dani after manual healing. Although it might go unnoticed at first, using this gear will show players how effective it is when fighting enemies. The Street Surgeon Helmet can be bought for 500 Pesos from Juan’s Arms Dealers.

Chest Gear

Impact Vest

Juan’s Arms Dealers sell this chest gear for 500 Yaran Pesos and definitely is worth it. Although it only protects you from certain types of damage, mostly explosions, explosions are the biggest threats in Yaran; making the Impact vest a viable choice.

Leg Gear

Oku’s Deliverance

The “As above so below” ability grants players the advantage from higher ground. The leg gear deals more damage to enemies that are at least a floor below them as per GamesRadar. Players can get these after completing the Triada Blessings Relics quest on the island.

Scrounger Jeans

The “Super Tool” adds a new ability altogether. The jeans offer a brand-new ability to players, auto-repairing all vehicles they use. A Juan’s Arms Dealers find for 300 Yaran Pesos brings a unique feature to Far Cry 6.

The Best Far Cry 6 Builds to Beat Castillo
