Similar to other games in the FC series, crafting is an important mechanic in Far Cry 4 that lets you create new items, some of which can be further upgraded into better gear. There are a variety of items that you can craft including medicine from plants and bait bags from animal hides but all of them require raw ingredients to craft. In this tutorial I"m going to detail all of the craftable items in Far Cry 4 including a guide to help you understand the raw materials needed to create each of them. Any fan of Far cry will tell you that it takes patience to hunt down the animals you need to create better gear and accessories. Some of the rare animals can only be found by attempting higher level missions and quests which are unlocked as you take down more Outposts and Radio Towers. Aside from craftable items, there are also temporary ability buffs and health restoration syringes which can be crafted from plants. Syringe Kits give you a limited number of Syringe slots to carry Syringes on your travels. You"ll need to unlock the particular Skill in order to craft different types of syringe such as the "Hunter Syringe".

Plants and Syringes

*
Plants are used to craft Syringes which offers temporary benefits such as health restoration and enhanced combat. They come in a variety of forms but the general principle is that the colour depicts the usage. The list below shows what each colour means: Green - used to craft health restorationYellow - improve survival and focus abilitiesRed - enhances survival and hunting abilitiesBlue - enhances hunting and focus abilitiesWhite - help you turn the tide of a fightPurple - used in the higher level Syringes e.g OverdoseThe video below shows how to craft a simple Hunting Syringe:

Health Syringe
*
Auto crafted from two green plants.Health syringes are slightly different to the other unlockable syringes such as Focus, Survival and Hunting. Health syringes are automatically crafted whenever you pick up 2 green plants.To recover health you either use one of your health syringes, which is the default action, or you will perform first aid on yourself if you don"t have any crafted. The health syringe counter is located near the bottom left side of the screen, shown by a little green plus icon and a number indicating how many you have (see image above).Using a health syringe is much faster than fast aid and it leaves you less prone to attack during the healing process.Hunting Syringe
*
Crafted from Blue and Red plants.The Hunting Syringe is unlocked via the Elephant skill tree (blue). Using this Syringe will highlight enemies and animals for 30 seconds. The Level 2 version of this Syringe will make your virtually silent and animals won"t attack you or flee unless provoked.Focus Syringe
*
Crafted from Blue and Yellow plants.The Focus Syringe must also be unlocked via the Elephant skill tree (blue). Using the Syringe will help you run and swim faster, and also let you breath underwater for longer. The effects last for 30 seconds. The level 2 version of this syringe is probably one of the best, it makes it much harder for enemy weapons fire to hit you when you are moving.Survival Syringe
*
Crafted from Red and Yellow plants.The Survival Syringe will reduce physical (melee) damage and the chance of being knocked down by an enemy. The Syringe must be unlocked via the Elephant skill tree and it"s effects last for 30 seconds. The Level 2 version of this syringe will reduce the damage you take from weapons fire.Overdose Syringe
*
Crafted from White and Purple plants.The Overdose Syringe is a gamblers favourite. Although it will let you deal double damage you"ll also become susceptible to double damage yourself. The Syringe is unlocked via the 3rd row of the Elephant skill tree and it"s effects last for 30 seconds.
