Hope County Jail is a Story Mission in Far Cry 5. This walkthrough shows how to complete this Quest.
- Reach the location
- Eliminate the enemies
- Defend the gate
- Destroy the Speaker Trucks
- Eliminate the remaining enemies
This quest is available from the beginning of the game, right after finishing the Prologue. You can play the 3 Regions (John, Faith, Jacob) in any order you want. If you want to start with Faith’s Region that’s perfectly fine, they are all roughly the same difficulty.
You can go to the quest log and mark this mission as active to get the waypoint to it or alternatively, go to the location marked below. This leads you to the Hope County Jail.
Once you arrive, defeat all the animals in front of the prison. Then a cutscene will trigger and you will go on the prison walls to defend the place. Your new objective is to defend the gate.
There are some rocket launchers on the wall. Go grab one and shoot the enemy vehicles with it. There are many other weapons on the wall, anything with decent range will work well (so anything except shotguns).
After the first big wave, more enemies will attack the western wall. Again, be sure to blow them up with a rocket right away.
If you get overrun by the enemies they will break the gate and 3 vehicles with speakers will spawn and try to drive into the prison. These attract zombie-like enemies that only use melee attacks but can take a ton of damage. Destroy the speaker trucks as fast as possible so be sure to keep at least 3 rockets for them (alternatively, throw some remote explosives / dynamite).
Your teammate Hurk is also very helpful here if you’ve already unlocked him (he carries a rocket launcher).
Finish off the remaining enemies and the Hope County Jail Story Mission will finish. Enjoy the resulting cutscene, you now get a new base of operations in Faith’s Region, inside the Hope County Jail, Many new missions can be accepted here afterward.
