Knowing how to capture and keep a tank in Far Cry 6 can be very useful, once you know where the tank locations commonly are. Having a tank at your disposal has its advantages when you’re fighting a guerilla war, as you might imagine. It’s amazing how it clears the road in seconds. So, in our Far Cry 6 Tank Locations – Capture & Keep a Tank guide, we’ll show you how to capture a tank in FC6, as well as their locations and how to get them all.
How to Capture a Tank in Far Cry 6
To capture a tank in Far Cry 6, after finding its location, hop into it and take it to the nearest vehicle pickup point. These are are marked on the map as little green icons with a white truck in them, as demonstrated in the screenshot below. Plot a course on your map and then just drive over to the pickup point. After you’ve done that, you’ll always be able to summon that tank via the phone booth. You can’t scan tanks with your phone and add them to your garage that way; you have to go the longer route. On the bright side, it’s surprisingly easy to reach any destination when you’re driving tens of tons of steel with a cannon on top. That said, there are also two tanks that are rewards for completing specific missions.
