Far Cry 5 Live Event Guides – Everything You Need to Know

Far Cry 5 features an interesting weekly challenge system called Live Events. Each week (on Tuesday), a new Live Event is released for players to complete in order to earn in game loot like weapons and outfits. Up to now there has been a new Live Event each week, but recently Ubisoft has decided to release old challenges for players that may have missed them the first time around (vote here).
