Far Cry 6: How to Save Your Game

Far Cry 6 uses autosave to track your game progress. This is the only save system in the game and can be seen in the top corner of the screen. A white page icon will flash when the game is saving. Because of this, there are few reliable ways to trigger a save. Here's some methods we're using at the moment to make sure our progress is being saved:

  • Discover new areas
  • Main missions will save at regular checkpoints as they advance
  • Fast Travelling to a location on the map. Hideouts are great for this.

Can You Save Manually?


No, you cannot save your game manually in Far Cry 6. The game exclusively uses autosave, and currently it does seem to be a bit temperamental. We recommend using the Fast Travel function to save your game while outside of main missions, even if you've just cleared an outpost or done some other side activity in the open world.

Always look out for the saving icon when checking to see whether or not your progress has been saved. Do not exit the game while the icon is still on screen, as this can lead to corrupted save files and lost data.

That's all you need to know about saving your game in Far Cry 6. For more on the game be sure to check out our guide on getting the Bow weapon. Elsewhere there's our guide on the Rides that you can collect all over Yara.
