Game Guide - Helpful hints Just Cause Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016

1. Keep saving your current progress!

This is the most important aspect of the entire game. You must save your progress, whenever this is possible. Sadly, "Just Cause" doesn't offer a possibility of making quick saves. You will only be able to do this, once you're close enough to one of the previously unlocked safehouses. If you want to know where they here, go ahead and check the second chapter of my game guide. You can find the safehouses almost everywhere. You shouldn't also have any problems using them, however you must remember that some fights will take place in less populated areas. As a result, reaching one of the nearby hideouts will be a lot more difficult. Make sure that you don't attack anyone unless you really have to. Unlike "GTA" games, you won't be able to escape police or other hostile forces that easily. Furthermore, later during the game you will also have to watch out for enemy gunships. In most cases, you would have to spend at least a few minutes in order to reach a nearest safehouse. It's not that easy as it seems, especially if everyone's shooting at you. Before you decide to create a new savegame, make sure that you've replenished your ammo supplies. You should also use the medical station. Remember that all those things are done for free.

The only exception are the main missions of the game. Every time you end one of these, a small menu will appear on the screen. You will have an opportunity to save up your progress. Make sure that you take advantages of these kinds of opportunities! This is even more important if you've managed to end of the more difficult missions of the game.

2. Equip yourself properly

Taking an appropriate equipment is also very important. In most cases, an outcome of more difficult missions will depend on this. Let's start with the weapons. I'd strongly recommend to choose at least ONE decent MACHINE GUN. You will be using these weapons all the time, mostly to eliminate enemy soldiers. A machine gun will allow to take out almost everyone, whether it's a single unit or a small group of soldiers. If you come across a much larger squad, it would be best to use something else to take care of this problem. Grenades are very useful throughout the entire game. Additionally, you won't have any problems finding them. Most of the killed soldiers will leave interesting items. You will acquire new grenades, as well as medical kits and ammunition. You have to be careful, though. The grenade must land exactly where you planned if you want this type of action to succeed. Thankfully, even you won't be able to kill some of the soldiers, they will most likely be stunned for a few seconds. Make sure that you take advantage of this. Grenades become less powerful later during the game. I would recommend that you replace them with a rocket launcher. Grenade launcher also seems like a good idea, although you might have some problems finding this weapon. You will have to be on a look out. Make sure to check what exactly did the killed soldiers left behind. As for the rocket launcher, you'll be using it mostly against armored vehicles, gunships and barricades (liberation missions). Make sure to get a hold of it as soon as possible.

Choosing a correct vehicle for the mission is equally important. In this case, it all depends on a type of mission. If you have to catch someone, it would be best to a choose a fast car, that's also quite stable. Only then you will be able to end the whole mission without having to worry about anything else. As for the helicopters, I would recommend that you choose well armed gunships. Most of them will offer miniguns, as well as standard rockets. You will also be able to steal a lot of interesting machines once a mission has already started, however you shouldn't forget about your hideouts. Most of them have a lot of interesting machines to offer.

3. Don't let your enemies surprise you

You shouldn't have any problems with your enemies. "Just Cause" (for the most of the time) is not a difficult game. Just make sure that you stick close to my instructions and your character should be just fine. Most of the enemies will not use any vehicles. As a result, it's very easy to take them out. Just make sure that they're in your sight. You will also have to move a lot. Some soldiers may carry heavier weapons or even rocket launchers. You must watch out for them. Make sure that they die in the first place. You should also be using a lot of grenades. Most of your enemies will remain in the same place, so there's a huge probability that a successful throw will kill them. Additionally, you will find a lot of grenades along the way. As a result, you will always have at least a few of them to use. I should also warn you about a few other things. You will have to avoid explosions. They will occur very often, especially if there are some tanks or vehicles in the area. Make sure that you keep a safe distance, so you don't lose a lot of health by accident. Some of the larger explosions could even kill you.

Most cars are even more deadly. If they hit you, it's almost certain that your character will die, even if it's a fairly small vehicle. Sadly, you won't be able to predict many of these accidents, especially if you're trying to liberate large cities or army bases. Losing your character would of course be equal to an instant failure, so you will have to avoid these actions at all costs. The most important thing here is to make sure that you're not standing in a middle of the road. You should also look around a lot, so you won't be surprised by anything. Some of the vehicles will also be armed. Thankfully, you won't have to be worried about that. Most of the enemy soldiers will decide to leave the vehicle, instead of using a heavy machine gun post.

4. Perform all kinds of side missions

I would recommend that you also read the fifth section of this chapter. There are a lot of additional challenges (you won't have to complete them) waiting for you. It would be best to take a closer look at some of them. These missions weren't described in the first chapter of this guide, mostly because they will be very random. Each time you decide to start a mission, something new should be waiting for you. Thankfully, these missions are very simple. You shouldn't have any troubles finding out what needs to be done. For the most of the time, you will have to collect certain objects - briefcases, cars or something else. There are also a lot of assassination missions ahead of you. Some of them will involve taking out a single target, however in rare cases you will have to take care of an entire group of enemy units. You should also know that completing these missions is worth the risk. Each time you do this, you will be rewarded with a certain amount of Prestige Points. This will allow you to advance in the ranks of both organizations. As a result, you will unlock new hideouts, cars or better weapons. Make sure that you read the second chapter of the guide. You'll find more info there.

5. Liberate new provinces

I guess I should also tell you more about liberating new provinces. This isn't a complicated process, although you should know how this is all organized. First of all, you have to take a closer look at your PDA. You will find two different maps in it. Make sure that you choose the political map. As you've probably noticed, there are a lot of different types of sectors here. Blue provinces can't be accessed at this time. It means that even if you manage to find one of the rebels, you won't be able to start the liberation mission. This is only possible in those provinces which have been designated with the red color. In order to take a full control over an entire sector, you will have to liberate several villages, towns or army bases. Liberating each of these settlements will also be rewarded with Prestige Points. You should take a look at the red bar. In most cases, taking control over two settlements should be enough to liberate a whole province. Liberated sectors are displayed in green. Additionally, you won't be able to lose them in the future, so you don't have to worry about that.

Taking control over new provinces has its advantages. First of all, you will be much safer in these areas, however this doesn't mean that you can kill everyone you meet! A lot of these sectors have an army base. Make sure that you take a closer look at these settlements. You can find a lot armored vehicles, gunships or even planes here. You will also be rewarded with new hideouts (check out the second chapter of this guide). Most of them are quite useful, especially if you plan on conquering all of the surrounding areas. You should also know that you won't have to take control of a province the moment it's unlocked. You can leave it for later. New provinces are being unlocked each time you successfully end one of the main missions of the campaign mode.
