Far Cry Primal completed in 1:44 hours in survival mode and expert difficulty, up until the point of eliminating enemy tribe leaders Ull and Batari.
This is not the full speedrun all the way to the "Land of Oros conquered" sign. Killing Batari is where the existing Far Cry Primal speedruns conclude, so that's how far this run goes too.
No plugins, glitches or cheats were used.
The run is:
- Survival / No permadeath / Expert game mode
- Aim and melee assist both turned off
- Segmented, in 16 segments (https://speedrunwiki.com/Segmented_run) as opposed to single-segment (https://speedrunwiki.com/Single-segment_run)
- Casual: it's not an official SpeedDemosArchive run (unlike many of my other videos). It's also not perfect - you're welcome to show me the video if you managed to improve it!
- Much of the video is in hunter vision. I know it looks bland, but it's major help in spotting resources and enemies.
- This video may be offensive to vegans. :)
Kudos to BNH for his existing Primal speedrun, which was a solid starting point!

Hey Thinkshooter, long time, you probably don't know who I am.
I wish you had contacted me before you did this, because I have to tell you my dude, you can instant kill the "Final" (Not final but it's the final of this category I guess) boss, the fire lady. Simply climb along the rocks behind her ledge, and you can jump up, then take her down. It takes about a minute and a half total from the time you enter the boss fight to her being dead, would cut a few minutes off the run.
I also knew other shit for this game but I fucking hate this game so I can't be fucked.
This is the only one that directly stands out in my mind because of the fact that it shaves like 11 minutes off the current RTA record, I'd have to actually play the game again to see if anything else comes to mind, but you've actually done a lot of the other changes I had.
Basically, the current *RTA run is shit.
Finally managed to reproduce your trick tonight. This is awesome!
I think I'll wait a bit for any new tip(s) I might learn before updating my run. Once done, I'll ping you so you can see your backdoor route integrated into a full run (if you want).
Now's a good time to ask - when you wrote "I also knew other shit for this game", is there any other tip, shortcut or timesaver you remember? Strictly on a voluntary basis of course; if you want to keep your discoveries, I totally understand.
Thinkshooter Nah don't bother with that I don't care about being credited. The only real thing with this strat you may struggle with is, on that one high jump in the middle, you have to jump away then turn back toward the rock so you're sliding on to the downward slope, that seems to be the only way to make it work. Everything else is pretty easy to figure out with some work.
Wow you're good. Of course I appreciate the time you put into this, and that you got in touch in the first place. I'll see if I'm good enough to reproduce your trick. If so, and I ever manage to integrate it into an improved run, I'll put a note into the video description with a link to your Youtube channel. Is that OK?
