In Far Cry 5, Live Events were weekly personal and community challenges; if completed, they would reward the player for their personal contributions, while the community as whole aims for a cumulative target goal.
If the goal is reached, the entire community who took part in the challenge would be rewarded.
|Well Done||The Well Done event's target is to kill animals with fire, such as fire bullets or arrows.|
|Arcade Dawn||The Arcade Dawn event's target is to spend 40 minutes in Arcade.|
|Roadkill||The Roadkill event is all about vehicular manslaughter. Kill animals and Peggies to unlock a unique quad and an outfit.|
|Pickup Blowup||The Pickup Blowup event is about one thing, and one thing only: blowing shit up. The goal was to destroy Cult pickup trucks with dynamite, pipe bombs, proximity mines, and remote explosives. Rocket Launchers and grenades don't count. Sorry, Hurk!|

- Live Events started on 3 April 2018, as they did not start immediately at launch.
- The Sharp Shooter event was the first event the community failed to complete, and as such the Hunter Outfits were not awarded to players.
- The Punchline event was the first event not to feature a companion comic alongside the event, and every event thereafter has not had one as well.
- Live Events season came to an end on 25 September 2018.
