It's been a year since I played my ps3 - this time last year, it was uncharted 3. As a former gamer who doesn't play games, it's a treat when I do.

It's been a crap Christmas with the flu and a death in the family, everyone has gone out for boxing day (except me, feel too ill) so, home alone and wrapped up warm, I'm just about to fire up far cry 3 thumbup

Firing up in 10 seconds! biggrin

I've not read the thread yet, but how long is the single player campaign, fully and slowly explored (my playing style) ?

I've been playing it fairly regular for a few weeks now in that style and I'm about halfway through.

First job for you is to get your 4-weapon holster crafted!

On the "Monkey See, Monkey Boom" final mission, I was sure that when Hurk gives you som C4 and hugs you, he was going to blow you up like his monkeys. Of course, I guess that's the whole 'gag' of the mission (which was quite fun, I must admit).

Someone show me how to hold my gun...

I've crafted a holster, can carry two weapons.
Ps3 - I hold L2, and can see my AK in top slot.
Holding L2, the right slot is now unlocked...
In the shop, I can't but an mp5, as I already have one (just bought it)

The question is, why doesn't my mp5 appear when I hold L2? I can carry 2 weapons, have them apparently, but can't equip anything other than the Kalashnikov which was my first weapon.

Ammo is scarse, so a big boo hoo frown
hehe

What have I done wrong?

If you haven't already worked this out, you need to use the shop to 'equip' the weapon.

Also, remember that when picking up a new weapon from the floor, you'll swap out the one you're holding unless you have an empty space.

Any tips on getting the sharks skin for the 4 pouch weapon holster?
Tried shooting, didnt work. Next step is trying that hunting syringe and diving in and mashing one with hands. Is that the way?
Awesome game, seems much better than FC2 and much less monotonous so far. Only a couple of hours in

Sharks can be shot. Very easily in fact. Bear in mind they will sink when killed so try and kill them in shallow water.

A boat with a mounted gun is one way of hunting them when you are earlier in the game, as the gun is more powerful and has infinite ammo.

sniper rifle. spot them with the camera and scope first so you can track them then shoot with sniper rifle

I found just randomly pointing the camera at the ocean (when in a boat) spots them quite easily, when diving for the sking I am always paranoid about another one coming along to eat me.

Having said all that I can't think of a game that I would score an 8 or more in the past year or two. I hate to say it but I may be losing interest in gaming (something I never thought I would say).
I agree with this somewhat. Since BF3 was released 2 years ago, I've played a few games that have been fairly decent but nothing that's been fantastic. I also thought for a time I was loosing interest in games but I don't think it's that tbh, there just haven't been many outstanding games released.

Personally I think I may be loosing interest in single player games as even greats like Mass Effect 3 and Far Cry 3 have struggled to keep my interest for more than a week or two. I may have been playing games for too long though as no matter how decent the AI is, I loose interest as it's not challenging enough after a while or I start to see the flaws in the game. Either that or publishers have forgotten how to make really gripping single player games as most seem to wane in the latter stages.

Also there is nothing like the adrenaline kick of playing against real live opponents IMO, I wish Dice would hurry up and release BF4 already.

In addition to all the good advice given for killing sharks in general, be aware that the shark skin for the 4 weapon holster is a special shark that can only be got on a "Path of the Hunter" quest.
The location for this specific quest is at Kell's Boat Repairs on the North Island.
