The “Paint the Town” mission in Far Cry 6 challenges players to deface 12 Gabriel Castillo statues around Esperanza. Some of the statues can be tricky to locate. Finding and gathering collectibles is a major part of Far Cry 6, and players looking to complete the game will need to spend a fair amount of time looking for them. In addition to the Gabriel statues, there are many collectibles or objects all around Yara, such as Far Cry 6’s Criptograma chests.

Tracking down structures or items like the Gabriel statues or the Roosters in Far Cry 6 can be difficult because they aren’t marked on the map. Players looking to deface all 12 statues and complete the “Paint the Town” side mission will need to travel all around Yara’s capital city, Esperanza.


To start the “Paint the Town” quest, players need to be at least Rank 16 and find Zenia Zayas near West Lado in Esperanza. She explains that her father’s dying wish was for her to find and deface the 12 propaganda statues in the massive Far Cry 6 capital city, and she asks Dani to help her. Tagging the statues will paint flames around the bases of each. The statues don’t appear on the map unless Dani is close to them, so tracking them down can be difficult. Fortunately, players can use some landmarks in Esperanza to locate each one.

Gabriel Statue Locations in Far Cry 6

To fulfill Zayas’ father’s last wish, Dani must locate the 12 statues of Gabriel Castillo, Antón’s father, and the former president of Yara. The statues appear in various locations as tall stone structures with a bust of Gabriel’s head at the top.
