Salvation is a Story Mission in Far Cry 5. This walkthrough shows how to complete this Quest.
- Reach the Misery
- Secure the area
- Ambush the Priestess
- Save the remaining hostages
This quest is a hostage rescue mission. Go in with a stealthy loadout. I recommend a bow and putting a silencer on one of your other weapons (which you can buy at the Hope County Jail Vendor by customizing a weapon). If the enemies see you they will execute the hostages.
Head to the map location that’s automatically marked on the map for this quest, in the north of Faith’s region.
Use your binoculars (press ) to mark all the enemies and take them out one by one. Take out as many as you can with the bow from afar, then go in and take out the rest with a silenced weapon. They are allowed to be aware of your presence (i.e. see their dead teammates), but the second they actually see you they will execute the hostages. A good way to sneak into the compound is through the big metal wreck that has “Misery” written on it (on the side of the building).
With all enemies defeated the next objective will trigger to ambush the Priestess. The easiest option is to plant some remote explosive on the road where the waypoint is. She will come in a car. Detonate the Remote Explosive when she drives over it.
Now the next objective is to free the remaining hostages (assuming you weren’t noticed and the enemies didn’t slaughter them). The screenshot below has them circled in red color. There are 4 hostages in total.
The first hostage is on the ground floor.
The second hostage is on the 2nd floor.
The third hostage is on the 3rd floor (rooftop).
The fourth hostage is inside a cage above the water. To open it, pull the red lever in the screenshot below (where the pistol is aimed, in front of the cages).
Upon freeing the last hostage the Salvation Story Mission will complete!
