Apparently i can't have two guns for hire in New Dawn, unlike FC5. Only one at a time. Am i missing something here? Seems really strange. Is this something that you can/will unlock later on? I remember in FC5 you had to buy a perk in order to have two guns for hire with you.

I hope that it will be unlocked because I found that there is chats between companions. After I unassigned Nana and assigned Carmina they was in the same location for some time and there was chat between them like there was in FC5. In this case Nana told Carmina why she won't tell her about prewar world. Quite funny dialog there was. So I hope that it will be unlocked somehow. I really liked when I got 2 companions in FC5. But yes, I really interested to know: it is possible in New Dawn to have 2 companions like in FC5? And if not, can developers somehow add this possibility in patch? :)

P.S. And it is strange that there is no Fighters for Hire (common NPC, not specialists) in New Dawn. :(

This is correct. You can only have on gun-for-hire in Far Cry New Dawn. There is no perk to have a second companion fight with you.

Can I ask why it was cut down to 1....?

I loved the GFH mechanic. And too be honest it was the only reason why I was leaning toward getting NEW DAWN.

Iím reconsidering purchasing this game now, seeing as my favourite feature has been stripped down.

Iím also tired of asking Ubisoft for more survival hardcore features / options.

I was just gagging for a squad based shooter! So was thinking of getting ND. But now....

If thereís no GFH feature or a stripped down version? Whatís the point ó might as well pick up Metro! That game offers that more hardcore experience Iím looking for.

If you're looking for an hardcore experience then why the desperation for a second gun-for-hire?
It's like training wheels for gamers- if you want a challenge then don't use them...

Dude I have been really craving a squad based shooter.

There are none currently.

So I really wanted to use them. But if the game is HARD thereís a reason to use them!

FC5 was easy, and using GFH was pretty pointless because of that....

But I loved the feature. So I was hoping this game would be harder to give the player a reason to use them.

Thank you for answer! Can you ask developers are they going to return this feature if players would like it to have i in game? I really liked it and it was a complete surprise that it was removed from New Dawn.

For me removing second companion was a huge disappintment. :( I really liked New Dawn, but this is major disadvantage for me.

Well, near main base there is a location called Roughneck's Crag. This is like 8-Bit Pizza Bar from Far Cry 5 when every companion is present at same time. This is the place where their dialogues happen.

Well, this is a cut down sequel to FC 5. Shrunken game world, and reduced assets and features, reduced price (yea, yea---plus new ones FC 5 "didn't have"). For the record--I miss the "soldiers for hire" feature too! I'm pouting now!! :mad: :D

That doesn't explain anything, since the programming for the AI and the model for having 2 companions is already made and thus would be no extra time/effort/expense to have been included in ND. They'd basically just have to copy/paste their existing code from FC5.

+1! They even have dialogues between companions which you can hear at Roughneck's Crag. So, basically, they just need to enable this feature in the game, everything is ready for it.

Well, it happened so I think all we need is to ask developers: please, bring this feature back in the game!

Aww man, totally bummed that you can only have 1 gun for hire.... Was my fave part of FC5 running around with Peaches and Boomer. Thought I'd be able to have Timber and Horatio at the same time and have a blast with them too. But NOOOOPE!! :(

Why?
