Punch Line Live Event Guide – Far Cry 5

Punch Line Live Event Guide

Last week’s Live Event in Far Cry 5 was all about playing time, while this week’s Live Event sees a pivot back to what we know so well, killing cultists. To help you navigate this week’s challenge, use the Punch Line Live Event guide below.

Punch Line Live Event Progression

Before diving into actually completing this week’s Live Event, let’s take a quick look at the live event’s progression and unlocks. You will need to rack up a set number of barefist cultist kills. Here are the numbers you need to hit:

Personal Progression:

  • 4 Cultists = 50 Silver Bars
  • 8 Cultists = 1973 Pygmalion SSR “Vroom and Boom”

Community Progression (PC):

  • 200k Cultists = 50 Silver Bars
  • 400k Cultists = Whack! Shirt.

The instructions for the Punch Line Live Event are as follows: “It’s time to get pugilistic on those cultists! Use your fists, brass knuckles of even The Furious homeopathic to make kills!” To put the instructions more plainly, all you need to do is kill a total of 8 cultists using your bare knuckles, or brass knuckles in Far Cry 5.

How to Complete the Punch Line Live Event

As the progression points out, this is a fairly simple Live Event challenge this week. All you need to do here is defeat 8 cultists with your bare hands in order to secure some loot. To easily complete this challenge, I highly recommend having Outposts available (since they are guaranteed to be full of cultists).

Once you have an Outpost in mind, make your way to it and equip your fists. When you have your fists equipped, pop a The Furious potion and get to punching. You should be able to kill a number of cultists rather quickly using this method.

Access the Punch Line Loot

Once you’ve killed a total of 8 cultists with your bare hands in  Far Cry 5, you will unlock a couple of pieces of loot. Below you will find out how to access each piece of your new loot.

  • Silver: Your rewards of Silver can be acquired by opening the Live Events Progression screen in the Online part of the menu.
  • 1973 Pygmalion SSR “Vroom and Boom”: This car can be accessed at any Garage after you’ve unlocked it. Simply access the Garage and make your way to the Automobile section (at the bottom you will find the car).
  • Whack! Shirt: The Whack! Shirt can be accessed via the Character Customization screen under the Upper Body tab.

There you have it, a quick guide to the Punch Line Live Event in Far Cry 5. This event is one of the more disappointing Live Events they have done since the release of Far Cry 5.
