We've put together a simple guide on how to unlock Boom Boom the dog as an animal Amigo in Far Cry 6.

Boom Boom is one of the two canine companions players can unlock as an Amigo in Far Cry 6. Amigos are animals that can assist Dani as she adventures throughout the island nation of Yara and uproots the Castillo fascist regime. There are five Amigos in the base game with an additional two as part of two DLC packs.

In this guide, we're going to go over how to unlock Boom Boom.

How to Unlock Boom Boom in Far Cry 6

Players who completed Far Cry 5 are in for quite a surprise with this sweet dog. In order to get Boom Boom to join up with Libertad, players will need to head to Ceinaga Nublada National Park. While hanging around Camp Maximas, they should find an interactable note detailing some supply drops and a peculiar barking crate. This will initiate the "Boom or Bust" side quest and send the player to check it out.

Head out to Valle de Oro and locate a crate marked as "Shipment from Montana"--which should be pretty easy to find considering how loud that barking actually is. By now, anyone who has played Far Cry 5 should have an idea of who's locked inside. Pull out a weapon and break open the lock to release the hound—Boomer!

Boom Boom, as he is now called in Far Cry 6, is an Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) mix. This breed is primarily used for herding and is known for its intelligence, loyalty, and high prey drive thanks to an ancestral connection to the dingo. In-game, the player can direct him to retrieve supplies from dead combatants and tag enemies.
