If you want to know how to save your game progress in Far Cry 6, you’re probably far from the only one. You’d think that there’s a way to do so manually, but, well, there isn’t. However, there are some things that you can do to trigger the game to save, which can be helpful if you want to quit the game for whatever reason. We’ll explain all you need to know in our Far Cry 6 How to Save Game Progress guide.
How to Save in Far Cry 6
To save your game progress in Far Cry 6, you basically have to trigger the autosave function. Yes, the game doesn’t have any manual save option; rather, you have to rely entirely on FC6 saving itself. The autosave triggers fairly often. Whenever you see a little paper icon in the top right, you’ll know that it happened. This happens mostly after completing a quest, or after a cutscene, or when you fast travel to a Libertad safe zone. The latter is pretty much your closest analog to a manual save – just teleport anywhere to a safe zone, and the little paper icon should pop up.
How to Save Game in Coop – Far Cry 6
To save your game progress in Far Cry 6 co-op mode, you need to do the same things as in single player. The system works completely the same, as in, it triggers when you complete a mission or clear out an outpost or what have you. Apparently, when the game saves for one of you, it also saves for the other person, so keep that in mind. Also, pausing the game won’t pause it for the other player, of course, which is also something to pay attention to. You can read more about this in our Far Cry 6 Coop Unlock, Crossplay, Multiplayer – How to Play With Friends guide.
