This page of the Far Cry 6 game guide contains the most important information about Boom Boom, the Amigo/pet. We explain when the mutt can join the main character and list the unique features that set Boom Boom apart from other pets.
Unlocking the dog as a pet
Boom Boom is the name of a stray dog that you will meet while completing missions in Valle De Oro. Start by completing the Meet Maximas Matanzas quest, which is an introduction to the region.
You can find an interactive note at camp Maximas. Reading it will unlock the Boom or Bust Yaran story commissioned by Juan Cortez.
The Boom or Bust quest involves visiting Feroza. You need to explore the location with containers to find the one containing a weapon transport. The containers can be opened by shooting their padlocks.
A stray dog named Boom Boom will be hiding in one of the containers. The mission will end after a while and Boom Boom will join your Amigo/pet list.
Traveling together with Boom Boom the Amigo
Boom Boom is a stealth Amigo. His main feature is the ability to search the bodies of enemies for loot. Additionally, Boom Boom can help you tag enemies and wildlife. Boom Boom isn't completely defenseless in direct combat, but he doesn't do as well as Guapo or Chicharron.
Boom Boom's unique abilities are:
- Pointer - This challenge requires Boom Boom to collect resources from the bodies of 10 dead opponents - allow him to check them after each battle. Unlocking this ability allows the dog to tag the positions of enemies and wildlife. This way, you won't need to use your smartphone to survey your surroundings as often.
- Expert Tracker - This challenge requires Boom Boom to tag 24 wild animals - both this and the Thick Coat challenge are very easy to complete when traveling in a vehicle with Boom Boom in the passenger seat (example in the attached screenshot). This ability allows Boom Boom to tag targets from a greater distance.
- Thick Coat - This challenge requires Boom Boom to tag 50 opponents. The ability increases the dog's resistance to enemy attacks.
