66. You can Double-Takedown-From-Above from a wingsuit or glider; If you do this, you have just achieved the best systematic FPS gameplay ever.  
 
67. Any time your character holds his weapon closer to him behind any type of cover, that means that you are in cover state; but it also means you can dynamically shoot out of your cover above you, or to the left/right, by pressing AIM(iron sights) or Shoot(blindfire); the best FPS cover system ever made.

80) Hitting the water from around 200 feet up at terminal velocity doesn't hurt at all.

98. You can kill every damn soldier in a base but you will not liberate it if that dog, who must hold some sort of military rank, is still alive.

99. Your posse of Rakyat warriors seem to always show up after you liberate a base, not before.

101. Rabid dogs must be put down with rpgs and flamethrowers, according to the locals.

104. The idea hunting by standing on top of the Jeep worked so great in Red Dead Redemption (with the horse drawn carriages) as animals will at least have trouble getting to you. Unless you drive it into the water & stand on the wrecked vehicle as it won't help with sharks.

105. There's always going to be a hill that clearly looks like something you can climb but if you can't, avoid hitting the jump button as you will jump back quite a lot.

112. You can reset your thumb; dig a bullet out of your arm; douse flames with your hands. But you cannot piss on yourself to alleviate a Jelly Fish sting. You will get stung.

113. A quick way of reaching the top of a tower is by crashing a hang glider onto the top level of it. May only be possible from certain locations, but definitely works in some spots. Aeronautics is your friend.

114. Jason is in fact Nomad's long lost son. His previous life as an idiotic partying teenage moron reflected the weak stupid linear games of the open-world-tropical-paradise universe (released in the last 5 years) such as Far Cry 2 and Crysis 2. His transformation into a badass was him finding his long-gone father's true path, the path of Crysis, the path of truly open world, intelligent AI and absolute player freedom to manipulate the AI and create random unique scenarios on the go. Far Cry 3 is Jason's finding of Nomad's lifestyle and embracing it. The son has finally returned and he did NOT disappoint.. Crysis is Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3 is FC3 ;)
