“A heavy drinker and smoker, it's taken a toll on his 48 year old frame. But still a bear of a man who can break you in two.
Did his mandatory as a paratrooper before finding work as a bodyguard and enforcer in former Yugoslavia.
Ran a small trucking company. Likes the high risk contracts, like here. Guess the money's better. He's supporting his family back in Europe.”

Journal Description

Josip Idromeno is an Albanian who was born in Kosovo. He was a paratrooper in the Yugoslav People's Army, working as a bodyguard and partisan in the Kosovo Liberation Army, a paramilitary insurgent organization, and is now a veteran of the war that took place in Yugoslavia.


Josip can be chosen as the player character in Far Cry 2. If he is not chosen, he will appear as a buddy to the player character.


During the progress of the game, Josip may ask you to do a couple of favors for him:


  • He is the oldest playable character in Far Cry 2.
  • His English is not very well developed, it's obvious when he talks to you.
  • Even though Josip is ethnically Albanian, his first name is a play on the late Yugoslavian leader, Josip Broz Tito's name.
  • Josip carries either a Homeland 37 or SPAS-12 shotgun, determined randomly whenever he appears.
