By spending points on the Far Cry 5 skill tree, you can cater your playstyle exactly how you want. As explained in our Far Cry 5 perks guide, you earn perk points in the game by completing side-quests and missions.

In Far Cry 5, these points can then be spent across five different categories. Each category favors a certain playstyle, so depending on whether you want to sneaking around and opening safes to unlock those silver bars, or mastering a range of weapons, will depend which area you want to focus on.

In the following Far Cry 5 skill tree, we'll take a look at each perk and how it can help you.
