Far Cry 4's Loot Is Full Of Hidden Jokes

Far Cry 4 is the kind of game that's deeply in love with its loot. It wants you, the player, to love its loot too. So it packs the stuff full of silly jokes and insular references. Here are some of the silliest I've seen so far.

Is this a Grand Theft Auto V reference? I'm gonna choose to read it that way.

Jokes like the ones Far Cry 4 makes can be good or bad thing, depending on how you feel about video game loot in general. But at the very least, it's nice to see that the new Far Cry can have a little fun with itself. Plus, reading the cheeky descriptions of items really helps break up the monotony of opening flashing chests in the game until your loot bag is full and then selling everything inside. Unless your wallet is full too, in which case you need to go kill and skin more animals to take care of that situation.
