This page of the Far Cry 6 game guide contains the most important information about Chorizo, the Amigo/pet. We explain when the dachshund can join the main character and list the unique features that set Chorizo apart from other pets.
Unlocking the dachshund as a pet
Chorizo is the name of a disabled dachshund, which by default is a pet belonging to Philly. You will meet this character as part of the main storyline, specifically during operation Meet the Monteros, which involves visiting Madrugada for the first time to recruit members of the Monteros family as potential allies.
Completing the aforementioned operation unlocks the Who's a Good Boy? mission. During it, you need to interact with the dachshund in the Montero Farm camp and then bring Chorizo some crocodile meat - his favorite treat.
The next mission, Fetch Quest, will start immediately after delivering the crocodile meat. This is a short quest that involves following Chorizo around the guerrilla base. You will also learn about the pet's ability to find valuable loot.
Upon completing the Fetch Quest mission, the dachshund will become your Amigo and you will be able to select him in the pet menu from that point on.
Traveling together with Chorizo the Amigo
Chorizo is a stealth Amigo. He has the ability to fight, but he isn't as strong as the crocodile or the rooster. The default "use" for the dachshund is to distract targeted enemies, but this only works outside of combat. Distracting your opponents makes it easier to surprise attack them, or you can simply bypass them.
Chorizo's unique abilities are:
- Bloodhound - This challenge requires Chorizo to distract 10 different enemies - send him to targeted enemies. With the ability unlocked, the dachshund will be able to mark crafting materials that he finds in the area.
- Yes, You Can - The challenge requires Chorizo to tag 36 loot containers - try to avoid tagging them yourself. This ability allows your character to restore some health each time they pet Chorizo.
- Keen Senses - This challenge requires you to heal yourself 50 times by petting Chorizo. Unlocking this ability allows Chorizo to dig up resources from time to time.
