Capture parties are groups of cultists trying to detain you in Far Cry 5. They’ll start chasing you all of a sudden at some point, and you’ll have to either fight or try to avoid them. A lot of players are finding them tedious, and would like to know if it’s possible to avoid Far Cry 5 capture parties.
Can you escape capture parties in Far Cry 5?
The short answer is “No“. You will eventually get caught. However, you can delay capture. You can outrun them, but they’ll appear again. You can massacre them, but another group will replace them soon enough. You can start a side quest during the chase, and they’ll back off for a while. Still, no matter what you do, you’ll have to let them capture you at some point – might as well get it over with as soon as it becomes an option.
The capture parties start appearing as you complete the first stage of your reputation race. You’ll notice the resistance point meter has reached the first notch, filling about a third of the bar. That’s about 3300 resistance points in Jacob’s region, or 4300 in Faith’s and John’s areas. This means you can plan ahead and jump to another area when you’re near that point, if you want to avoid them even longer. However, it really is best to let them catch you and be done with it. The sooner you do, the sooner you can continue slaughtering them, burning their shrines and liberating outposts.
Afterwards, you’ll also have air raids when you reach the second notch in an area’s resistance-o-meter. The third and final step is all about the drugs, because what’s a Far Cry game without copious usage of several kinds of narcotics. They are also mandatory, so don’t try to escape or skip them.
