Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Achievements

Set Them Free

Destroy 5 Braincages  

As you progress through the main storyline, you will come across calm Dragons with red boxes around their heads, known as "brain cages." These brainwashed Dragons are timid and do not react to Cyber Hearts as the wild Dragons do. In order to destroy their Braincage, you will want to try to sneak up on them and then either throw an explosive near it, or shoot the red box on its head. After dishing out a minimal amount of damage, the Braincage will fall off, the dragon will become wild, turn bright red and attack. Simply destroy a total of 5 Braincgaes and the achievement is yours.

@1 you are as useful as a bag of hammers when I need a screwdriver.

Ok for everyone else this involves a small spoiler so read on if you don't mind.

In the 3nd mission you will be tasked to destroy the prototype brain cages, these DO NOT count. The only brain cages that count are the ones attached to the some of the blood dragons. Aim for the head and keep shooting, it took me 2 direct head shots with all mods with the sniper rifle to remove the brain cage.

I had exactly 5 dragons in mission 4 (including prologue): "What Is This Shit?".

Here's a guide that shows that mission and some garrison locations:

There is one in the final mission for anyone that has the two open world ones and has gone past mission 4 without getting this. I got mine in the last mission.

Correction - there is more than one in the final mission.

This popped for me during the brain cage mission. I killed the first dragon behind glass by pushing the button on the control panel, then killed the four dragons guarding the eggs. Popped when the last one died.

I was able to shoot and destroy a braincage with one shot from the sniper rifle with the explosive rounds upgrade. This dragon looked like it was guarding the entrance of a garrison, southeast on the map. So far this is the only non-mission braincage I've found.
