One of the most frequently asked questions on my Youtube channel is when certain weapons will become available for purchase at the weapon shop computer in the PC game Far Cry 2.
Note that not all the weapons are unlocked by completing convoy missions. Some are unlocked by completing certain parts of the game and three weapons are available immediately right from the start of the game
Below is a complete list of how and when all the weapons become unlocked:
START OF THE GAME
The following weapons are available right from the start of the game and can be purchased upon your first visit to the weapon shop during the training and tutorial elements of the game:
- Homeland 37
After Completing the TRAINING AND TUTORIAL ELEMENTS
The following weapons become unlocked at the weapon shop after completing the so-called 'training and tutorial elements' of the game. The game will notify you that you have completed the training and tutorial elements upon exiting the church in Pala after getting your first batch of malaria pills.
- M1903 Sniper Rifle
Convoy Missions - Act 1
There are four convoy missions in Act 1. Completing each convoy mission will unlock certain weapons and make them available for purchase at the weapon shop computer. The convoy missions are issued to you randomly in no particular order. Convoy missions can only be taken on when you have no other mission active.
NOTE: After completing the fourth convoy mission in Act 1, upon returning to the weapon shop, you'll see a prompt telling you that the AS50 and the M-249 SAW will be available upon completing the next convoy mission. This is referring to the first convoy mission in Act 2. At this point of the game, there are NO MORE MISSIONS AVAILABLE in Act 1.
The weapons unlocked by each convoy mission are listed under each respective mission below:
- Star .45
- Flare Pistol
- Silent Makarov 6P9
- RPG-7 Rocket Launcher
- Silent MP-5
- LPO-50 Flamethrower
- Dragunov SVD
- M-79 Grenade Launcher
- Dart Rifle
After Completing the BARGE/MARINA MISSIONS (OPENING MISSIONS OF ACT 2)
Upon starting Act 2 of Far Cry 2, you'll be required to complete the opening missions before you can begin to free roam and do as you please. These two opening missions, which I refer to as the Barge & Marina missions. After completing these missions, the following weapons will be automatically unlocked and available for purchase at the weapon shop computer:
- FAL Paratrooper
- Eagle .50
Convoy Missions - Act 2
There are four convoy missions in Act 2. Completing each convoy mission will unlock certain weapons and make them available for purchase at the weapon shop computer. The convoy missions are issued to you randomly in no particular order. Convoy missions can only be taken on when you have no other mission active.
