When playing Far Cry 6, you will need to make a big decision that determines the future of McKay, the Yanqui interloper. You have the chance to either kill him or let him live. Both of these choices will have a different set of results and consequences, making it quite tricky to pick between both. In this guide, we will solve this dilemma by showing you what happens if you choose either of them and which one you should go ahead with.
Far Cry 6: Kill McKay Or Let Him Live? (The Best Choice)
What happens when you Kill McKay in Far Cry 6?
If you choose to kill McKay, you will be able to get your hands on the “Canadians, What?” wrist equipment. This is a very rare item that will ensure your enemies drop pesos each time you beat them. The only catch is that you need to defeat them with the help of poison.
As long as you have a weapon that has a poison round ammo mod attached to it, you will be able to enjoy the potency of the “Canadians, What” gear. Otherwise, you will still get to enjoy watching McKay die.
What happens when you let McKay live?
Allowing McKay to live is the default choice you will face in Far Cry 6. You actually do not need to do anything to spare him. By choosing this particular option, you will see McKay leave on a boat into the sunset. Before setting off, he will gift you 5,000 pesos.
While this sounds like a great gesture, 5,000 pesos is actually quite a small sum in FC6. If you choose to go raid some FND bases, and successfully complete treasure hunt missions, you can easily get your hands on more. You can also use McKay’s wrist gear after killing him in order to get more money.
What is the Best Choice?
When it comes to killing or sparing McKay, there really isn’t a ‘best choice’. It just depends on what you wish to do. Killing McKay will help you get your hands on rare equipment that can also fetch you pesos. Letting him live will see you receive a 5000 peso gift. The choice is entirely upon you.
So there you have it. These are the two choices you will face with McKay in FC6. At the end of the day, neither choice will have any major consequences, so it all depends on what you want. If you want to watch McKay fall before your eyes, you can just go ahead and end his life.
