Far Cry 5 How to Change Your Appearance

At the very beginning of Far Cry 5 you are asked to make a choice regarding your character in the game.  This character can be a male of female character model, and this choice is permanent.  Following this choice you will be asked to pick a design for your character’s face, skin color, and hair.  These selections (aside from hair style) are all permanent in the game.

The gender, facial model, and hair cannot be changed after the beginning of the game, but players can get more customization options by unlocking or purchasing new clothes for their character.  As these options become available they can be accessed within the customization portion of the game’s menu.  It’s the last tab on the right, and it will allow you to instantly change your clothing options.  These range from a wide variety of clothing options and accessories.

There are unique outfits that can be purchased or earned.  Or you can select your own clothing piece by piece in the following categories:  Upper Body, Lower Body, Hair, Headwear, and Handwear.

Cult Outposts are your best bet for unlocking new outfits for your character. Completing these missions that have you clearing out enemy forces and liberating areas in Hope will net you the most outfits.  While things like side missions will unlock specific clothing pieces as rewards.
