Heavy Gunners are members of Eden's Gate who are armed with the M60 LMG. They are the most durable common enemies in the game and require a large amount of bullets to kill. Powerful sniper rifles can kill them in only a couple of hits. They will charge their enemies like Berserkers while laying down a large volume of fire. Their helmets can be shot off their heads, and then the player can perform headshots on them. If the player gets to close to the heavy gunner, they will swing their gun around to hit the player, if they get hit by this attack they will fall down and be stunned temporarily. The heavy gunner can be killed in one hit if the player does a takedown on them.
- They can be taken down with a normal takedown, unlike in the past Far Cry's, where heavies needed a special Takedown skill.
- Unlike the Heavy Gunners in other Far Cry games, they can take cover or charge the player at relatively fast speed.
- They are the weakest Heavy Gunners in the series. They are just below Pirate and Royal Army Heavy Gunners, in terms of how many bullets it'll take to kill them with an AR-C. Also they don't wear as much armor unlike Pirate and Royal Army Heavies.
- Their helmets resemble WWI and WWII German Stahlhelms.
