Far Cry 6 Rooster Locations

In order to win Cockfights in Far Cry 6, you’ll need to know the locations of all the best Roosters hidden around Yara, and they’re not always easy to find.

Competing in Cockfights is one of the easiest ways to earn some extra money in Far Cry 6, but it’s also a fun way to pass the time and take a small break from exploring the sprawling map of Yara and taking down Antón Castillo’s forces.

Based on traditional fighting games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, the game places a variety of Roosters in one-on-one battles for glory. There are even over-the-top special moves known as Gallo Super attacks to deal extra damage.

It’s all very bizarre, but also quite addictive if you’re willing to spend enough time with it. In order to win at the higher difficulties, though, you’re going to have to find the best Roosters – and we’ve got all of their locations for you.

How to win Cockfights in Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6 Cockfights
It may seem silly, but there is some skill involved with Far Cry 6’s Cockfights.

Cockfights in Far Cry 6 are relatively easy, to begin with, and you can probably button-mash your way to victory. But as you progress through the difficulty levels, you’ll need to play a little more strategically and utilize all of the tricks your Rooster can pull off.

There are three types of attack – Close-Range, Long-Range, and Jump Attack – and your Rooster can dodge in any given direction. Take damage or miss attacks, and your Rage Bar will fill up, allowing you to unleash a powerful Gallo Super attack.

The best strategy for most Cockfights is to bait your opponent into attacking you first, dodge backward out of harm’s way, and then go in for the kill with a Long-Range attack or Jump Attack, or your Super Gallo when it charges up.

This might sound simple, but it can be very tempting to just constantly attack your opponent, especially when you’re playing something as silly as this. You’ll get a lot further if you approach battles more strategically instead.
