To get this trophy nice and easily, you should find a poker game and then save your progress before joining the table. Then, join the game and choose your difficulty.

Super Bounces

If you land on power lines while using the wingsuit you will be able to do super bounces.

Hidden Video Sequences

Take one of the 'eat me' berries whenever you travel to the grotto underneath the mansion and you will be able to view hidden video scenes.

How to Dive

To dive into the water (rather than just jumping and flailing around), you need to press jump once to leap off wherever you are standing, then press it again in midair. This will execute a flawless dive.

If you are wondering how to dive underwater, simply look down and move in that direction. The water has to be deep enough for you to be able to go underwater.

Shark Skin

To get shark skins you potentially have to come face to face with one of nature's most fearsome predators. Below are a few tips for making these encounters as painless as possible:

The safest way is to get a boat or jet ski and take it out into the water. Wait for sharks to come round the boat, then shoot them from your position. You can then go into the water to harvest the skins.

If you feel like being more hands-on, dive off the edge of the boat and let them come at you. They sometimes grab you which triggers as QTE (where you press buttons to complete actions) and these, if done successfully, will end with you being able to skin the shark.

Finally, try using your camera and scanning the ocean with it. You should be able to 'tag' sharks and then head o..

Goat Locations

When you are looking to find some goats on Far Cry 3's epic map, here are a couple of pointers. The goats tend to congregate around one area, particularly to the northeast of where you start, roughly X:442, Y:761 are the co-ordinates. Look for a cave that they are often spotted near.

Also, remember that once you climb the radio tower in a particular region, all of the animal types in the area are shown on the map, indicated by white silhouettes.

Finding Objectives

If you go to the top of any of the highest mountains and take out your camera and zoom in you will notice lots of bright lights when you look around the land. These are your objectives lighting up.

Rare Animals

Search the following locations to find the corresponding rare animal.

Blood Komodo:

Cliffside Overlook outpost, Path of the Hunter.

One Horn Buffalo:

Camp Murder outpost, Path of the Hunter.

Black Panther:

Outpost southeast of the mansion, Path of the Hunter.

Tactics for Hunting

If you are trying to hunt certain animals, particularly when required to kill them just with a Bow and Arrow, there are a few tactics you can try to employ:

The game is very large, meaning there are frequently occasions when animals will 'glitch' or get trapped in an area and not be able to move. If fighting something like the Black Panther, you can try to get it to glitch before shooting it with your arrows - it's a tough fight otherwise.

For more docile prey, try getting them between you and the ocean. Then, fire some shots into the group and they will run away from you, into the sea, and drown themselves!

Animal Hunt

When selecting a animal hunt check which weapon is to be used (all but bow) then go and get the better of the weapon to be used giving yourself a better edge over the recommended one

A very interesting find

I was taking outpost on the privateer island after beating the game and reseting my outposts and found that I could fast travel back to the compound so I did bodies everywhere were loot able and privateer patrols still spawned there even without outposts no matter how many times I fast travel back the dead bodies remain loot able but you can only loot them once per fast travel it's easy money have fun

P.S.bring plenty of ammo and possibly a grenade launcher vehicles occasionally get in there because the gates open

Free skill point

In the beginning of the game right after you rescue the second person from the pirates when you get in the cave and she sends you to find the wrench, push the explosive barrel to the surface and then to the shore next to the boat on the right side of the rock closest to the girl by the fire. Trust me it works I've done it.
