Specialists: How to Unlock Them and What Skills They Have – Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 is built around the idea of playing the game cooperatively with a friend. If, like me, you have no friends, you are probably playing through the game alone. That’s okay though as there are Specialists in the game which help you and provide some interesting skills to take into the battlefield. Below you will find a list of all nine specialists in Far Cry 5 along with how to unlock them and what they have.
