    Far Cry 3 Relics Locations Guide

    Relics are collectibles in the game that grant you 250 XP every time you pick up one.

    Relics On-screen

    Important Tip About How To Find Relics: The Relics and other collectibles become visible to you on-screen as flashes of light by looking around using your camera! They’ll then be marked on your map, so you can set a way point, and walk in their general direction to find them.

    Relics on Maps

    Buying Maps Trick: After you buy all the “Item Maps” at in-game stores, you can make Relics show up on the map area you’re at by activating a nearby radio tower. Doing that reveals all the locations for the Relics previously hidden in that certain area (if you bought the map for that area).

    Relics Video Guide

    Here’s the start of a video guide that shows you where all of the Far Cry 3 Relics locations are on the map and in-game.

    Missable Cave Relic

    Here’s a video guide showing you the location of Relic #1 and Spider Relic #1. This relic is not marked on the map and must be obtained after saving your second friend, before confronting Vaas.

    Important Note: This is a missable Relic, because there doesn’t seem to be a way to get into that cave after completing the game.

    Relics Complete Map Overview

    All 120 Relics locations in Far Cry 3, shown here on the in-game map.

    Thanks to Sam, PixelTwitch, LGxDEVIL, Deathmule & CompareTheGame for the guide videos.

      Someone please help me, i cannot find the Relic # 13, Spider # 13 …even turned of everything on map without Relic’s but couldn’t se it anywhere..

    • Drew

      Was a white dot for me for the cave entrance. There’s a path off of the road that starts SW of it. The black dot (further SE) is another cave that has just a couple loot boxes.
