* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: As noted by [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Far_Cry_3#FN_Minimi IMFDB]], the MKG is an extremely bizarre version of the FN M249/FN Minimi, with the belt feed opening replaced by a left-handed charging handle and a weird belt box with the STANAG well adaptor.

* ShortRangeShotgun: All three of the shotguns shown in game trade range for damage. The pre-order multiplayer weapon the Type-10 has a little more range due to being a "handgun" like the Flare Gun but trades in damage for it, doing less than other shotguns despite using an absurdly round, as shown in "Hand Cannon" above.

** The multiplayer has the pre-order Type 10. It is a modified Japanese Type-10 Flare Gun that uses 35mm shotgun shells. To put this perspective this is slightly above 33.67mm 2-gauge used by '''[[BFG smaller punt guns]]'''. And you shoot this one-handed.

* SoundtrackDissonance: The game's techno ambience and occasional dubstep are a stark contrast to the serene nature and the more serious aspects of the game's story. Ends up being flipped all the way back around when you're dispatched to burn down a farm of marijuana plants to trippy dub-step music.

* HandCannon:
** The .44 Magnum revolver and the D50 are two strongest pistols you can by in game, which isn't saying much when there's only 4. The .44's Signature version, aptly named "Cannon" has increased damage, accuracy, and range at a higher cost.

* NotTheIntendedUse: The Repair Tool is a small torch that use use to repair vehicles or [[KillItWithFire burn shit]]. The achievement "Improper Use" is gained when you kill someone with it which, while kind of amusing, isn't all that useful nor practical.

A stand-alone expansion, titled ''VideoGame/FarCry3BloodDragon'', was also released May 1st, 2013. Related [[InNameOnly only by game engine and title]], ''Blood Dragon'' is an AffectionateParody of 80's sci-fi action flicks such as ''Franchise/{{Robocop}}'', ''{{Film/Aliens}}'', and ''Film/TheTerminator'' (among others); set in the distant, cyberpunk year of 2007, it features retro cutscenes, [=VHS=] tracking, a synthetic soundtrack, and other elements of 80's goodness.

* AnnoyingArrows: Averted. The Composite Bow is one of the deadliest weapons in the game, capable of killing nearly anything in one silent shot. [[DifficultButAwesome If you can get used to adjusting for the arrow drop, anyway]]. Not to mention two (stealth) shots can take down a Heavy Unit. And even if there are too many enemies in a tight space you can make explosive and incendiary arrows on the fly.

And even if there are too many enemies in a tight space you can make explosive and incendiary arrows on the fly.



** The bow is a cool weapon that allows for silent one-hit kills, with ammo that can be reacquired once the area's clear, and enemies that are close enough to realize their buddy just died won't immediately know where the arrow came from like they do with a bullet, but the arc of the arrows means it takes a lot of practice to use it reliably. On top of that, most forms of underbrush that you can conceal yourself in will completely stop any arrows you attempt to fire from them, and the closest you get to a "long-range" sight for it is the Marksman Sight, which doesn't actually zoom your view as much as it gives you some idea of how much you need to correct your aim for specific distances, meaning you need to be good at judging distances and/or wasting time abusing the waypoint system to gauge how much correction is needed without potentially wasting arrows. A silenced sniper rifle fulfills the exact same purpose with much less skill required.
** The Anti-Materiel Rifle has the highest range, accuracy and damage of any firearm. Awesome! However, it cannot mount a silencer, which severely limits its usefulness for players with an interest in stealth. Still, due to its massive firepower (it blows up a car with only one or two hits to the engine - it's anti-'''materiel''', after all), even stealthy players will often find it useful. And let's not forget that if two opponents are standing right next to each other (which happens surprisingly often; those pirates sure are a chatty bunch), shooting one of them will outright kill or at least severely injure the other one due to the AMR's explosive ammunition. So much for one shot, one kill.

** There's actually a fair bit of Malay used throughout the game, and for the most part it's correctly used. However, for subtitle, the words are incorrect grammatically. For example, "berikanher ba" is actually "berikan herba. (give [me] the herb)"

* DependingOnTheWriter: A rather bizarre case as interviews revealed Jeffrey Yolaham maintained the game was a parody of colonialist tropes and the MightyWhitey idea. That it wasn't meant to be taken seriously. Other writers, however, talked about the game being a more "Heart of Darkness" experience. This may explain some of the MoodWhiplash.

Even ignoring Signature weapons, your starting wallet capacity gives you just enough to buy the .44 Magnum from the start of the game, which one-shots any enemy short of a Heavy.



* DownTheRabbitHole: A CentralTheme, so much so there's direct ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' quotes; the difference lies in that the characters find themselves in [[EldritchLocation hell-on-an-island]] instead of [[DarkWorld Wonderland]], and with [[HeWhoFightsMonsters "What will you]] [[WhatYouAreInTheDark do to survive?"]] as [[AnAesop the lesson]].

He then spends a few seconds looking at his hands in shock.

%% * GuideDangIt: One of the relics is not marked on the map. It can be found in the cave with the boat where your friends are. When you first get access to the cave, you can climb up some small cliffs across the cave from the boat to a new area with the relic, if you try to go to that area any time after you first find the cave, the area will be blocked by an InvisibleWall and the relic will be LostForever.

* CanonWelding: There are several hints that this game is set in the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' universe:
** The dagger Jason retrieves from an ancient temple looks very much like a Piece of Eden, it also causes visions and hallucinations just like them.
** The [=DLC=] missions are even more blatant, as there are direct references to Abstergo and the aforementioned Pieces of Eden.
