Far Cry 6: How to destroy and hijack tanks


Tanks are a new type of vehicle in Far Cry 6, and they’re incredibly difficult to destroy if you don’t know their weaknesses. They have protective armor that is mostly impenetrable, so you’ll have to get creative to take them down. Of course, you can use explosives like you would in most other video games, but you won’t always have access to an RPG or other explosive device in Far Cry 6. Fortunately, there are alternative methods. Here’s how to destroy tanks in Far Cry 6.

How to destroy tanks in Far Cry 6

There are two ways to destroy tanks in Far Cry 6. The first and easiest way is to use explosives. Even if a tank’s armor is strong, it cannot withstand rockets. You can use an RPG, Grenade Launcher, or Supremo to detonate tanks, but it may take a few explosions to put them out of action permanently. You can also hijack a helicopter or tank for yourself and fight that way.

The second method is a bit more dangerous, but you can do it with any weapon. Tanks have a large fuel tank on their backs that you can shoot and destroy for massive damage. The fuel tank looks like an oil barrel on its side. Once you detonate it, you’ll reveal a hidden weak point that you can keep shooting until the tank is destroyed. The weak point is in the same place as the fuel tank, so you will only have to continuously pull on the back of the tank.

The problem with this method is that it requires you to get close to the tank. If you stand directly behind the vehicle, it may back up and crash into you. It will kill you instantly, so try to keep your distance and shoot the fuel tank at an angle. Don’t forget to use your Supremo Backpack for extra damage and throw smoke grenades if you have them to protect yourself.

How to hijack tanks in Far Cry 6

If you prefer to take the tank for yourself, you can hijack it like any other vehicle. However, you will need to disable it first. To deactivate a tank, you must use either an EMP Grenade or an EMP Pulse, both of which come from your Supremo.


If you’ve equipped the Volta Supremo Backpack, you can use its ability to send an EMP pulse that deactivates all vehicles and electronic devices nearby. This will stop the tank in its tracks for a short period of time. If you are using another Supremo, you can install an EMP Grenade in the Socket Gadget of a Resolver Workbench. This will add EMP Grenades to your inventory which you can use to deactivate tanks.

Once a tank is deactivated, you can deflect it by climbing on it and finding the hatch. When you reach the hatch, you can either destroy the tank or hijack it. Either method is valid, but keep in mind that causing too much destruction with a tank could cause Castillo to send his special forces after you.

Far cry 6 is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
