During the main mission “Deported” in Far Cry 6, you can decide whether you want to kill McKay or not. In this guide, we will break down the differences and consequences of this decision for you.
Kill or spare McKay?
The decision about McKay’s fate is one of the few decisions in Far Cry 6 that has different consequences. However, this is limited to the rewards after the mission, which varies depending on the decision. This decision has no effect on the further course of the game or even the end.
At the end of the mission “Deported,” Juan gives you the order to leave McKay in peace, but it is up to you what you do with him. So you can just kill him if you want, the Canadian businessman is not a sympathizer anyway.
In the following, we describe exactly how the differences in this decision look.
Killing mckay (consequences)
If you kill McKay, you will receive the wrist armor “Canadians, what?” After completing the main mission. This is McKay’s tie that you can wrap around your wrist. It has the passive bonus that you get more pesos if you kill opponents with poison.
Note that you will only receive this wrist protection if you make this decision. If you leave McKay alone, you will no longer have the opportunity to get the tie in this playthrough. So it is missable!
In addition, Yelena this decision is better than if you had spared McKay. She welcomes your avenging Jonrón in this way.
Spare McKay (consequences)
If you want to spare McKay, you have to take Juan’s advice and just get off the ship without killing McKay. There are, however, the following two variations:
- Leave McKay alone: You go without bothering McKay.
- Shoot McKay: You shoot McKay in the legs or arms, but you don’t kill him for good . He then writhes on the ground and comments on your action.
Both variations, however, come to the same end. Namely with the fact that you will receive 5,000 Pesos in your account upon completion of the mission. In retrospect, Yelena will also be skeptical because she can’t believe that McKay just got away from you like that.
Our recommendation: Kill McKay and secure the missable outfit piece. In the game, you earn more than enough pesos anyway (for example with the Bandidos stakes) so that you can confidently forego the cash reward for sparing McKay.
