View Full Version : PC Stuck at 99% - missing 4 out of 38 recipes for syringes

09-06-2015, 10:52 PM
I bought Far Cry 3 for PC on steam.

I played out all the missions, side missions etc. I also got all the relics, letters etc.

BUT when I look in my statistics of my handbook I only have 34 out of 38 recipes for syringes.

Anyone know how to get the last four?

I think I know the solution.

Some people are saying that they already have 38 out of 38 syringes recipes after they finished the story and have more than 40 relics.

I found out that you get 3 recipes after you do the mission where need to grab some mix of leaves for the first time. The weird thing is that you handbook says you only have 1 out of 38 recipes. Maybe that is a glitch/bug or you only used one 1 recipe at that point (you need to make a health recipe).

When you only make health syringes you will stick at 1 recipe out of 38, according to your handbook. When you make one different recipe you all of a sudden have 5 out of 38 recipes in you handbook. That is still weird because you only have 3 recipes and not 5. But the difference between 1 and 5 is 4 so this is probably the fix.

So the solution is probably: make another recipe, besides the health recipe, after the mission where you have to grab some leaves for the first time!

Coming back from the future to say I had this exact problem. Finally found the answer on PlaystationTrophies (https://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/far-cry-3-a/233350-recipes-acquired.html) (link above didn't work)...

It's the BOW. I'd never used it as a weapon, didn't realise you could even upgrade four times, as it's done in a different place to all the other weapons. Much like the poster on PT, I'd too naively done all the Path of the Hunter bow missions with only 5 ammo at a time as well, what an unnecessary chore! So glad to finally be able to 100% the game.
