Far Cry 6 Big Papi Bandidos mission not available or opening issue acknowledged

In the past few weeks, Far Cry 6 players have been reporting some bugs that affect their experience. Now, another problem has arisen related to recruiting missions.

According to multiple reports, the mission to recruit Big Papi, one of Los Bandidos leaders, is missing or not available at the location on the map where it should (1, 2, 3).

Big Papi mission is not available for some Far Cry 6 players

To activate the recruitment mission of Big Papi in Little Yara, you must progress to a certain point in the game, and then reach a specific location, where you will receive a radio call.

However, some Far Cry 6 players are not being able to access the mission. According to the reports, having met all the requirements and having arrived at the established place, they never receive the radio call.

I am trying to activate the mission Big Papi in Little Yara, and on the internet it’s stated that you should receive a radio call when you approach his crash site.

However, I don’t get anything. I just get there, there are a couple of enemies and I unlocked the destination, but the mission doesn’t start.

No one seems to be having this issue. I have tried restarting the game, fast traveling, but to no avail.

Did anyone experience this bug?

Please fix the Big Papi bug, regardless of where I am around the papi crash site, not getting the Juan phone call, nor can I find big papi anywhere, he’s the only Bandido leader remaining for me. Can’t complete the game otherwise.

The first reports that refer to this bug are from the beginning of this month of November. Therefore, the problem has been out there for almost two weeks.


Taking into account that it is a problem that stops the progress in the game of the affected players, it should be solved as soon as possible.

Ubisoft is already aware of the bug

Ubisoft confirmed a few days ago that the team is aware of the bug. However, it is under investigation, and there is no estimated date for the arrival of a fix.

All right. We are aware of, and investigating this issue, and we appreciate that extra info. Still, any video clips you may be able to grab would be more appreciated!

At the moment, that’s all that is known about the bug with Far Cry 6’s Big Papi mission. If there is any new development in this regard, we will update this article, so stay tuned.
