Farcry 3 Skills Level Up

As Jason adventures through the island, he will encounter enemies and quests. Defeating enemies and completing quests will allow him to earn experience points and then level up and earn skill points once a certain amount of experience points have been accumulated. Some of the skills do require certain conditions or quests to be completed before they are available. All these are part of the growing up of a warrior. Once Jason has picked up some of the cooler skills, execute them on the denizens of the island and prove that Jason is the ultimate warrior!
