    Far Cry 3 Skill Trees

    To quote Far Cry 3’s lead game designer Jamie Keen about how the different skill trees manifest themselves in-game:

    “The tattoo is about Jason becoming one with the Rakyat, following the path of the warrior and getting closer to the rebels in the world. Every time you get a new skill, you’re going to have a corresponding tattoo appear on your arm – it’s going to depend on the route that you have taken.”

    In the below Far Cry 3 Skill Tree guide, Ubisoft’s Dan Hay explains how they tie into how you play the game.

    Next, a video guide shows you through the different skill trees and classes.
