Throughout Far Cry 6’s fictional explosions-filled paradise of Yara, you’ll find locked puzzle boxes called Criptograma chests. To unlock these boxes, you need to find two charts per locked box to open them.
With 15 chests scattered all across Yara, that’s a lot of boxes to hunt down. Why go through the trouble, you may ask? These Criptograma chests contain the Mark II Rioter, Fuego, and Hazmat armour sets. Putting these on will help reduce all sorts of damage you’ll be receiving, making you die less or not at all if you’re planning full-on guerilla assaults.
