The Far Cry Experience is a video set days before the events of Far Cry 3. It stars Christopher Mintz-Plasse as himself and Michael Mando as Vaas Montenegro.

The following section needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard, as it is possibly too long, too detailed, lacking objectivity, unclear, or lacks citations.


Taking place days before Far Cry 3, Christopher Mintz-Plasse is captured by Vaas and his gang of pirates where he becomes the subject of Vaas's torture show. 

The episode begins with a man being tied to a large rock while a camera records it all. Vaas steps in and pulls out an RPG. The man begs for his life, Vaas tells him to be quiet and let him focus, before firing the RPG.

After that, the scene flashbacks to 3 days earlier. We see Christopher Mintz-Plasse is filming a show on survival on Rook island. He keeps trying to make an introduction to the show, but continuing to screw up his lines, while also annoyed that his superiors and the rest of the crew is on a ship of the coast of the island partying while Chris and his camera-man, Barry (who's revealed to be the man that will be blown to pieces by Vaas later), survive. They spend the next few hours adventuring through the jungle trying to find fresh water and continue to bicker and mess with each other. Eventually, they find fresh water and stop so Berry can film Chris drinking. While in the middle of his "acting thirsty," Chris fails to notice a dead monkey bleeding into the stream he is drinking from. He runs off to vomit and warns Berry that he better not put it on the internet. Just at that moment, they hear a hunting trumpet and someone yelling, "Bambie", into the jungle. They go to investigate and while in a clearing, come across a man with his body in the middle of a deer. The man begs them not to kill him. Just as they say that they aren't going to kill him, gun shots are fired and the man runs in one direction while Chris and Barry run for some bushes near by, just as, "BAMBIE!!!" is heard again. Now, closer then ever.

“You were many things in this life. But you're a better horse, than you ever were a man...”
Vaas before killing off his "horse"

Chris and Barry are hiding in the bushes beside the clearing as they watch Vaas and two of his men enter the clearing. The two holding assault rifles and Vaas riding on the back of another human like a horse. Vaas claims his "horsie" needs a break and gets off his steed. He then proceeds to shoot the man through the head, claiming he was a better horse than he ever was a man. Vaas then spots something and starts walking towards Chris and Barry's hiding spot, claiming he smells something. Before he can get any close, the cries of the man inside the deer are heard again, and Vaas and his men head off to find him. Chris and Berry crawl out of the bushes and try to make a call to their boat to get picked up from the island. The passengers, thinking he is bluffing, don't take him seriously. The passengers then spot more pirates on the beach and, thinking they are other "party peeps", cheer and wave before the pirates shoot at them, eventually destroying the boat. Chris and Barry then see black smoke coming from some where in the distance and run to investigate. The smoke is coming from the remains of the destroyed boat and they find bloody corpses on the beach that Berry thinks is the captain. Before they get any closer, gun shots are heard from a few hundred yards away along the beach and Vaas screaming, "IMPERIALIST, COLONIALIST, FUCKS!!!!" Before the episode cuts to black. 

“McLovin, is HERE! HE IS HERE!!
Vaas aware of Chris' arrival at the Rook Islands

Barry and Chris are now hiding behind a patch of rocks while witnessing the capture of a few survivors of the cruise ship. One of Vaas's man brings him one of the cameras that was on the boat and begins to record what is going on. Vaas then brings forward a girl named Jennifer and two other men which were Chris' agents. Vaas pulls out his gun and forces her to choose which one deserve live and which one deserve to die. The men then begin to fight with each other over who is the more deserving of death and Vaas forces Jennifer to shoot both of them, before sends her away to the camp. Vaas's man brings over an iPad, showing the introduction of Chris's survival show. Knowing that Christopher is on the island, Vaas becomes excited and tells his men that "McLovin"[1] is here on the island. He pulls out a walkie-talkie and makes contact with Chris. While Chris pokes his head out from behind the rocks, Vaas spots him and Chris and Barry are forced to run from Vaas's men. Vaas then says to his camera man that they are going to make a reality show of them chasing Chris and then proceed to chase after Chris as well. 

“I will kill you...and then I will drag you out of the FUCKING HELL...!! And kill you again!”
Vaas threatens Barry if he doesn't stop crying

Chris and Barry continue to run from Vaas' pirates while Barry is still recording. Barry then twists his ankle and falls down. Chris is quick to abandon him just as a pirate shows up a points his gun at Barry. Just before he can kill Barry, Chris returns and slices the head of the pirate, picks up his AK-47 and shooting several more pirates before running off into the jungle. After running for a bit, they find themselves in the pirates' camp with bodies of men and women buried up to there necks in the dirt.  

One body, however is still alive and tries to bite Berry's leg. Barry is then shot in the leg and falls. Chris says he is not gonna leave him but he tells Chris to abandon him. Chris runs just as Vaas shows up and head-butts Barry into unconsciousness and picks up the camera, telling anyone watching not to vacation there and turning off the camera. After an unknown amount of time, the camera is turned back on, showing the torture of Barry and Jennifer.

One of Vaas' pirates films Vaas trying to talk to Chris on the walkie-talkie, telling him if he doesn't meet Vaas, he will cut Barry into little pieces. Barry tries to tell Chris to run, but Vaas shoots his already injured leg. Fed up from Barry's screaming and crying, Vaas yells at him to shut up or he will kill him. All of sudden, Chris shows up trying to rescue Barry.

Chris and Vaas then get into an argument over who should put their gun down. All the pirates in the compound point their guns at Chris, in which he threatens to shoot all of them if Vaas comes any closer. Vaas takes one step and Chris fires all his rounds but somehow does not manage to hit a single pirate. Vaas asks if he has any idea how rude that was. Chris, realizing his mistake, makes a run for it and the pirates chase after him. Some time later, Vaas is filmed on the beach, showing that he did capture Chris and buried him up to his neck in sand. Vaas tells Chris to say hello to the internet, and Chris responds by insulting him. Vaas then draws his gun and threatens to shoot him if he's being disrespectful to him again. Vaas tells the audience to vote if Chris should live or die, and tune into their daily tortures while he teaches Chris how to be a man before waving to the camera.

Chris is subjected to seven days of torturing by Vaas as each day is filmed. The torture includes dehydration, being trapped in a glass bowl with a giant spider, have a fire cracker go off in his face, being shocked by a car battery and unknowingly fed pieces of Barry's flesh. In the end, Vaas is surprised that the audience voted for Chris' life, and goes to tell Chris. Vaas then notices that Chris is not responding; he thinks Chris is pulling a trick he pulled three times before, but checks his pulse and realizes he is dead. He makes two attempts at mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before bowing his head in silence. Then another pirate runs up with news; Vaas yells at him for disturbing him before the pirate tells him six more people have landed on the island. (This is an oversight because in the actual game seven people landed on the island). Vaas is astounded that more would show up, then tells the camera for children to clean up after themselves before burying Chris completely (although if he is found during the course of the game, the head is still exposed).

  • Vaas' reference to Chris as "McLovin" is a reference to the 2008 comedy film Superbad, of which Chris played the character "McLovin"
