Far Cryathlon: Far Cry 3 Challenges with Outside Xbox
Let the games begin
Outside Xbox is proud to present the Far Cryathlon: a trio of Far Cry 3 challenges to test our mettle as electronic sportspersons. In the spectacular first event, the hang glider crash (above), Team OX must fly Dr Earnhardt's hang glider onto or into a distant radio tower. The trick is in the timing of the tactical bailout. Highest and least deadly landing wins.
Event the second is the animals-only outpost capture. Cryathletes must capture Mosquito Yard pirate outpost with no weapons, only wildlife. Mike's controversial use of a flare gun in the final minute was ruled legal by stewards. Points are awarded for speediest and most stylish capture.
Finally, in the vehicular long jump, Team OX must launch a jet ski off a Badtown waterfall. My late exchange of the Cryathlon-approved jumping vehicle for a white jet ski was also ruled as legit by the perpetually laid-back stewards. Farthest landing takes the gold.
If you have an event for inclusion, submit it to the Cryathlon Committee (comments section) below and join us in the Far Cryathlon - not a feature in which we worked backwards from a punny name, but a grand new tradition of excellence and personal betterment. See you on the field!
