How can you tell the gun type on top of the jeeps in Far Cry 2?

I’ve been playing Far Cry 2 on Infamous (hardest) difficulty lately. Without question the most common vehicle in Far Cry 2 is the Assault Truck.

Assault Truck

Mounted on top of it is a machine gun. The machine gun, like all mounted video game guns, has infinite ammo, which is awesome, and I use it constantly in all my drive-by shootings.

About once in every ten times, though, I start pulling the trigger to induce some high-velocity lead poisoning and discover that instead of the pleasing yet somehow anemic “dakka dakka dakka dakka” noise I get a much more thrilling “bamp! bamp! bamp! bamp!” and my hapless victims seem to die much more quickly.

How can I guarantee I’ll get a truck with this beefier gun all the time?


I think this is how it works:

If you perform all buddy missions in the north, the trucks that spawn outside your safehouses come with a M2 .50 Cal rather than a regular M-249 SAW. (The M2 is probably what you’re noticing.)

If you perform all buddy missions in the south, they come with a MK-19 grenade launcher.

I’m not sure there’s any way you can reliably find a car with an M2 “in the wild”.
