How To Find Boomer The Dog In Far Cry 5

Boomer is very easy to find right in the beginning when you start off your Far Cry 5 journey. Boomer can be very useful and comes in handy on many occasions in Hope County. He is able to make you aware of any nearby dangers, can cleverly kill enemies and also get you new weapons like guns while on the road. Hence, you should set your eyes out to find Boomer as soon as you are done with freeing the Dutch’s Island.

After you’ve freed Dutch’s Island, you will find a cursor on your map indicating Boomer’s location at Rae Rae’s Pumpkin farm. Get to the farm and you’ll find out that Boomer has been put in a cage by cultists who have murdered Rae Rae, Boomer’s previous owner.
