In Far Cry 2 a Safe House is a building that allows the player to be safe from enemies.
Safe Houses can be unlocked one at a time by killing the mercs that are guarding them. Once they are unlocked, the player can enter the Safe House. Inside, the Weapon Crates, which can be purchased at the Weapon Shop, hold whatever weapons that were previously stowed from the Armoury or another Safe House location.
Also, if the player's second-best buddy is not rescue ready, yet, enter a Safe House to meet up with the buddy who will become rescue ready again. Occasionally the player's second-best or best buddy will leave a more advanced weapon in the Safe House, although the weapon will always be rusty.
There are 20 Safe Houses in Leboa-Sako (Northern District) and 30 Safe Houses in Bowa Seko (Southern District).
By completing subverted buddy missions, the current best Buddy will reward the quest's completion by upgrading the player's Safe Houses.
