From crazed cult leaders to flashy dictators, Far Cry has given players some iconic villains, and we’ve decided to rank the main ones from worst to best.
Ubisoft has done a fabulous job in creating some truly captivating characters that have lived long in memory. They’ve perfectly complemented the lush, gorgeous open worlds that the Far Cry games love for players to lose hours to.
Some have not quite hit the heights, whereas others have been catapulted onto the Hollywood walk of insane. The legacy already left behind by some of Far Cry’s bad guys has seen them make countless lists for their evilness and foul intentions.
We’ve already ranked the main Far Cry games from worst to best, so today, it’s our turn to take the absolute best villains that Far Cry has produced and rank them from worst to best.
5. The Jackal
Cold, calculated, cool. But who is he? That’s one of the fascinating mysteries about The Jackal and Far Cry 2 that people still debate to this day. Conversely, that confusion also hurts the idea of The Jackal as we don’t truly know who it is.
The perceived Jackal has a tough demeanor and a deep, grizzly voice to back up his tough-guy actions, but again, are you The Jackal? We’ll never know.
4. Joseph Seed
“The Father” is your stereotypical cult leader that will force his will upon others until they see the light. His beliefs and way of life are partially caused by a damaged childhood, and his words and teachings became so great that he was able to artificially create a family – The Seeds.
Joseph’s missteps are that he’s an evil cult leader that’s been before. His motives are fueled by God, and he believes he’s the key to enlightenment. However, his standing as an all-time villain is boosted by his destructive actions at the end of Far Cry 5.
3. Faith Seed
A surprising entry to some, but Faith Seed is definitely the most interesting character in Far Cry 5. Her hallucinogenic drug makes for some exceptional scenarios, and her heartwarming performance almost makes you feel sorry for her.
Her storyline ends in a dramatic encounter that incorporates all of Faith’s beliefs, teachings, and her Bliss drug. She is a superb character and made for an even more interesting villain than Joseph Seed.
2. Pagan Min
The only thing that hinders Pagan Min’s chances of stealing the top spot, like he stole our hearts, is his fleeting screen time. Sometimes less is more, but in this case, we think gamers would definitely like to have seen more.
The beauty of Pagan Min is that his ruthless dictatorship is overlooked by his endless charm, and his incredible pink suit and white hair combo. His words acted more as his weapons, although our introduction to him does feature a rather brutal welcome.
1. Vaas Montenegro
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. “
Now, Vaas added his own choice words to this famous saying, but his words ring true as he literally implies that all bad guys are the same. Ubisoft’s ultimate villain technically wasn’t even the main villain in Far Cry 3 – that’s how much he claimed the spotlight.
Every time Vaas eyeballs you with his non-blinking, intimidating expression, you hang onto every word he says. To this day, Michael Mando’s portrayal of Vaas is still spoken highly of, and that’s because he’s the best villain in Far Cry history.

Changes coming to FUT Draft rewards in FIFA 22, says leaker
Fans have been calling for changes to FUT Draft rewards for some time, and a new leak suggests that EA may have listened for FIFA 22.
FUT Draft has been a staple of Ultimate Team for many years now. According to a new leak, the FIFA 22 FUt Draft rewards will see a revamp that fans have been calling for in the franchise.
FIFA 22 is nearly upon us, and fans are itching to dive into another season of swapping and trading in Ultimate Team. With the additions of FUT Heroes and some fresh ICON cards, there’s more to grind for than ever before.
Opening packs is fundamental to Ultimate Team, and FUT Draft was added as a way to earn pack rewards quickly. However, the underwhelming rewards earned in Draft have caused the mode to be largely abandoned by the community.
However, according to a new leak, FUT Draft in FIFA 22 could see some changes that have been long-awaited by the community.
FUT Draft is an Ultimate Mode where fans spend 15,000 coins to build a team from scratch using a series of random player picks. They then use this team to play in up to four matches, with rewards increasing in value the more games you win without losing.
Unfortuntlaey, the random nature of opening FUT packs means that the items earned aren’t always valuable enough to make playing the mode productive.
Players will find that they have recuperated their 15,000 entry fee – even if they win the Draft by beating four rival teams in a row.
According to known Ultimate Team leaker FutSpy, EA is looking to solve this issue by adding new rewards to be won. The leaker uncovered code hinting that Draft rewards will now feature some cards of a guaranteed rating, some of 82 or higher and some of 83 or higher.
This is a way of ensuring that those who make it further are always rewarded for their efforts and that packs have much more chance of being worth 15,000 coins or more.
The news is likely to please long-time fans, who have been calling for more incentive to play the more for many years.
EA has yet to confirm if the leak is true, so stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for future updates.

FIFA 22 top-rated Premier League players
EA has taken a different approach to the ratings reveal this year. Rather than gradually announcing the top 100 themselves day by day, they’ve allowed individual players and teams to reveal their ratings as and when they choose.

FIFA 22 top-rated LaLiga Santander players
As mentioned above, this year, EA has opted to reveal the ratings league by league rather than in order of rating.
The second batch to be revealed was the top 20 in LaLiga Santander. Many players have been given big boosts from last year, while some have seen noticeable downgrades.
Check out the 20 best players in the Spanish league below.

FIFA 22 top-rated Bundesliga players
When picking a league to build a team around, many fans will opt for a Bundesliga squad thanks to the sheer number of big names.
The likes of Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer being some of the best-rated players in the game makes the division a great place to start your Ultimate Team season.
In FUT 22, big upgrades to Dortmund’s hot prospect of Erling Haaland and Bayern’s Kingsley Coman mean that the German league is set to be a popular one once again.
Check out the 20 best Bundesliga players in the list below.

FIFA 22 top-rated Serie A players
Although the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku have fled Italy in favor of the Premier League, Serie A is still one of the go-to leagues when it comes to crafting a team.
There are plenty of high-rated cards to choose from in the Italian league, and some of the big names will actually make its players cheaper because they will be less sought-after by players building hybrid squads.
This makes Serie A a great division to focus on in the early stages of the game when coins can be hard to come by.
Take a look at 20 best players from the Italian league in the table below.
|#5||Milan Skriniar||Inter Milan||CB||86|
|#6||Samir Handanovic||Inter Milan||GK||86|
|#10||Stefan de Vrig||Inter Milan||CB||85|
|#11||Lautaro Martinez||Inter Milan||ST||85|
|#13||Matthijs de Ligt||Juventus||CB||85|
|#14||Nicolo Barella||Inter Milan||CM||84|
|#15||Theo Hernandez||AC Milan||LB||84|
|#16||Franck Yannick Kessie||AC Milan||CDM||84|
|#17||Marcelo Brozovic||Inter Milan||CDM||84|
|#18||Zlatan Ibrahimovic||AC Milan||ST||84|
|#19||Mike Maignan||AC Milan||GK||84|

Many of the most desirable players in every position can be found in the French capital, including Lionel Messi and FIFA 22 cover star Kylian Mbappe.
But that’s not to say that players from other teams aren’t going to be popular this year, Monaco’s Ben Yedder will almost certainly be FUT staple for another season.
Check out the 20 best players from the Ligue 1 Uber Eats in the list below.
|#8||Angel Di Maria||PSG||RW||87|
|#12||Wissam Ben Yedder||AS Monaco||ST||84|

New leak claims Fortnite is adding another Warzone feature
Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to implement a feature from Warzone in the game.
Some new leaks have emerged which suggest that Epic Games will be adding the sliding mechanic from Call of Duty: Warzone to Fortnite in a future update.
Battle Royale titles are highly competitive, and fans often call for these games to take inspiration from each other. Apex Legends players want Warzone’s matchmaking, and Warzone fans want Halo: Infinite’s Battle Pass system.
These leaks came from notable data miner HYPEX, who claims that the Fortnite developers are working on a new movement type in the game. This will come with a few benefits for players.
“It will increase your FOV by 15 when you’re sliding and it will make your camera shake, with a cooldown of 2 seconds,” HYPEX tweeted. “I don’t know the release date or if it’s gonna be an item!”
This sliding movement has been a staple of both Apex Legends and Warzone, so it might provide to be an exciting addition to Fortnite.
It’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just a leak, and you should take this information with a grain of salt until Epic Games confirms this. If it’s true, then this might be an exciting change.
The developers could introduce a cooldown timer so that players don’t abuse this mechanic in combat. If it arrives in the game soon, then we will probably see some big changes in player tactics.
We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this. For more Fortnite, check out all the Bounty Board Locations in Season 8, and stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!
