Far Cry 6 boasts one of the largest maps in the Far Cry series yet, and Ubisoft is no stranger to filling their maps with easter eggs and secrets for fans to encounter. Far Cry 6 makes reference to multiple other games, forms of pop culture, and even offers additional out-of-game puzzles and rewards to complete if you can find them.

Here we have listed all the easter eggs and secrets in Far Cry 6 that we could find, as well as where you can go ahead and find them for yourself.

When completing the Treasure Hunt, 'Cache Money', you will find yourself in a bunker that is situated in Aguas Lindas, a subregion of the Madrugada region. On a desk here, you will find a readable piece of paper that makes note of a few weapons. These weapons include an Ancient Spear and Ancient Concealed Blades, which are in reference to Assassins Creed weaponry. This makes perfect sense, considering Assasins Creed is another one of Ubisoft's biggest series'.

In the same bunker that you find the note referencing Assassins Creed, you can also find a Starlink Starter Set on a nearby bookshelf. This is clearly in reference to another Ubisoft-published game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

This bunker is particularly difficult to get into and may require a second person to assist you... so be sure you know how to go about playing multiplayer with friends and online.

Indiana Jones... or Allan Quatermain

In the small town of Concepcion, which is located in the region of El Este, you can embark on an Indiana Jones-style Treasure Hunt, called 'The Emerald Skull'.

Now, this Treasure Hunt is presumably in reference to Indiana Jones, given the style and gameplay of it. However, there are other theories that this isn't a reference to Indiana Jones, but to Allan Quatermain. Quatermain is the protagonist and hero of the 1885 novel King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard.

We are yet to see any confirmation as to whether this Treasure Hunt is of direct reference to either Indiana Jones or King Solomon's Mines, but the Treasure Hunt itself is rather fun regardless.

Ever since Far Cry 3, Agent Willis Huntley has previously been a big part of the series. If you head to Libertad Island and visit Juan's workshop - also known as Juan's Weapon's - and go to the second floor, you will find a desk that has a map of Yara on it. Next to the desk is a bin with a crumpled letter from W. Huntley, but there is also a small box on the desk that contains a US dog tag which bears Willis' Huntley's name.

If you're crafty enough and manage to kill a shark using one of your gadgets - specifically, a grenade - you will unlock the Jawson Trophy. This trophy is in dedication to Jason Brody of Far Cry 3. However, there are theories that this is perhaps a reference to the 80's cult classic, JAWS, as well.

For those who happen to be playing Far Cry 6 with the Blood Dragon DLC installed, you'll get some nice gear, weapons, and an Amigo that are all in reference to Far Cry 3's Blood Dragon expansion.

The Amigo, K-9000, is a metal dog who has a QR code on the tag of his collar if you look really closely. Scanning this QR code will take you to a website that features a quote from Laserhawk. To add to that, if you press the 'Start' option shown below the quote, you will be directed to a puzzle that you can solve. If you complete the puzzle, you will be rewarded with some exclusive Laserhawk related artwork!

Following the roll of the credits, after you meet the ending of Far Cry 6, there is a conversation heard between Juan Cortez and the 'Smuggler' regarding Viviro. For Far Cry 3 fans, the voice will be recognised as that of villain Vaas Montenegro.

We spoke in detail about the post-credits scene here, where we discussed the various endings for Far Cry 6.

If you go ahead and unlock Amigo's, you'll soon find Boom Boom in a shipping container during the Boom or Bust side quest. For those who have played Far Cry 5, Boom Boom will be familiar, as she is essentially Boomer from the prior game.

Somehow, she has made her way over to Yara, but we aren't complaining.

You will come here as part of one of the main story operations, but without spoiling the story, there's an easter egg here dedicated to the developers of the game too.

If you manage to find the pink and black trailer, you'll be able to find a note on the desk inside that you can read. This note details all the names of the developers!

Those are a handful of easter eggs and secrets that are intertwined throughout the scenic landscape and architecture of Yara. If we find anything else interesting, we'll be sure to let you know. If you're looking for more things to do during Far Cry 6 beyond the main story, then we have a handful of suggestions on what to do.
