Far Cry 5 – Throwing Melee Weapons
Throwing Melee Weapons
Other than being great for silent takedowns or nonchalantly whacking people around the head with, Far Cry 5’s assortment of spades, baseball bats, pipes, and oars can also be chucked like a throwing spear to either impale an enemy or send them flying down in confusion.
The game never specifically tells you that you’re able to do this, but it adds a much-needed sense of range to melee combat that can be utilized to clear space between you and your foes before you deliver that killer final blow. Just hold the LT / L1 button as though you were aiming down the barrel of a gun before hitting fire, and your thwacking stick of choice will be sent flying in that direction.
