Let’s be honest, you’re gonna pick the dog. I mean, he has fur, four legs, grabs weapons for you, and never dies. What’s better in a companion for Far Cry 5?
The latest trailer lists seven possible partners in crime you can recruit throughout your cultist-bashing adventures in Ubisoft’s latest installment in the series. From snipers and pyromaniacs to hunters and air support, there’s plenty of variation to suit any play-style. What the trailer doesn’t show, however, is that there’s a lovable bear companion named Cheeseburger that you can have. Yes. Cheeseburger. Below are the summaries of each, but if you want more backstory on each, check out the trailer below. If you want more Far Cry 5 story, check out their latest trailer here.

I wish you could have this bad boy as a companion.
While there is a cougar and bear companion that isn’t detailed in the video, I’m still stoked about having a furry creature as a pet. Also, the fact that one is named Cheeseburger. I mean, cmon. Regardless, you can go fishing with your new buddy in Far Cry 5 when it releases March 27, 2018, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
