"Your Far Cry 5 companions hang out at a pizza joint together when you're not with them"
A while back I spent three days following my Skyrim wife, Mjoll the Lioness, after dismissing her as a follower because I was curious if she would really walk all the way from Solstheim to our house in Solitude (she did, with some adventures along the way). I had the same curiosity about my Far Cry 5 followers—when I dismiss them, do they legitimately find their way back to their respective homes?
The answer is: sort of. But instead of going home, your human followers usually go to a pizza joint where they hang out together. All of them. Without you. Status update: my feelings are hurt.
