It's confusing enough when you save a game and then come back to it like a day later and have to remember where you left off. But it's 10x worse when you save a game only find out later that it didn't save where you were but instead saves at a nearby village, tower, etc. Who the heck thought this up?? What's the point of a save game feature if it doesn't save what you ask it to?

There appears to be a saving glitch. You have to save twice to by-pass the laziness of Ubisuck. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/632847-far-cry-3/64855679

Friends,

Yes, I sneak around for 20 minutes with my sniper riffle.. trying to tag all the enemies... trying to find the weak point. of course because I have not made any progress in the mission, the mission does not auto save... and I can not save. Then I go in and try to kill people. either they find the dead body.. when I could not drag them.. OR they turn around at the last minute. and catch me. so I have to do that 20 minutes ALL over again.

Its to bad you can not just save where you are standing. I only have 2 safe houses to fast travel from. so when I save its a hell of a long way back, to where I was exploring.

Kinda like red Dead Redem., save style.

Thank you for sharing. I will look at the link.
