Vector 45 has been sighted in Far Cry 5. The fan favorite weapon from the previous games has been spotted in a Youtube video a couple of days ago, but nobody – including the video’s author – knows how to unlock the gun. We decided to dive in and investigate the strange case of the Far Cry 5 Vector 45, and try to get our grubby mitts on it.
How to get Vector 45 in Far Cry 5?
It seems like you can’t, at least for now. We’ve tried several different approaches, but with no results. First we tried visiting the same vendor as the one in the video, thinking this might be the one vendor-specific weapon in the game. It wasn’t. Then we tried looking for any prepper stashes, side missions or cultist object we might’ve missed. We though it may be a reward for completing something we missed. It wasn’t. Even after clearing out pretty much everything, we didn’t manage to unlock the SMG.
What’s funny is that we don’t even have an empty slot in the weapons store for it. There are four SMGs we can see, and all four are unlocked. There has been some speculation in the online communities about it being a DLC weapon, but that still doesn’t explain the Youtube video. If it were an image, we’d suspect foul play, but videos are hard to fake. It also couldn’t have been a mod/hack, since PC press copies were delayed – any video from before the game’s release date were recorded on console.
We’re definitely going to keep digging, though – we want this legendary SMG as much as the next gun nut. We’ll keep you posted, in case there are any revelations. If you have any info about the Vector that we failed to mention, feel free to leave a comment.
