How to Destroy Anti-Aircraft Cannons in Far Cry 6

There is plenty of high-flying fun to be had in Far Cry 6, but it doesn't come without its complications. Anti-aircraft cannons make it tough to navigate the skies over Yara, and destroying them can make it a whole lot easier to fly. Not only that, but anti-aircraft sites also contain depleted uranium, a valuable resource used to purchase weapons and equipment from in-game vendors.

So, anti-aircraft cannons need to be destroyed, but it isn't that simple. Not only can they wipe out any aircraft that flies near them on their own, they can only be bypassed by Far Cry 6's wingsuit, but they are also heavily armored, and the sites in which they sit are protected by armed guards that must be dispatched.


As a result, taking out these objectives and gathering the loot requires a bit of strategy, and maybe even some of the better weapons in Far Cry 6. While it seems like a tough task to take out a piece of guarded heavy artillery, there are some easy ways to get it done. All that is needed is the right equipment, and a solid game plan.

anti-aircraft cannons in Far Cry 6 are armored, and regular munitions aren't going to destroy them. Luckily, that means that Dani gets to play with some explosives. In order to blow up one of the cannons, one of the following is required:

  • Grenades
  • Rockets (from a launcher or the Exterminador Supremo)
  • Explosive Barrel (if one is close enough)

The easiest way to get it done is with the Exterminador Supremo, the first Supremo backpack that Dani is given, which has the "Armageddon Strike" ability that sends down a barrage of rockets. This can be used to kill the guards around the cannon, as well as the cannon itself. Alternatively, the guards can be killed just as any other enemies can, and the cannon can be destroyed using a rocket launcher or by throwing a few grenades. If luck is on Dani's side, there may be an explosive barrel next to the target, and it can be shot to blow up the anti-aircraft gun.

After the guards are taken care of, and the cannon is destroyed, there will be a cache of depleted uranium that can be looted. This can be used to buy new Supremo backpacks and Resolver weapons from Juan Cortez, and can make hunting down these anti-aircraft sites very beneficial. In fact, this is the way that Dani can collect all of the Supremo backpacks in Far Cry 6.
