Sons of The Forest is a sequel to The Forest and it was finally launched on February 24th 2023. As you may already know if you played the previous game, getting a shelter setup before the first night approaches is extremely important otherwise you’ll be vulnerable to the cannibals. This page will navigate you through the necessary steps to crafting and setting up a Hunting Shelter.
Hunting Shelter Recipe in Sons of The Forest
Once you begin your first day in Sons of The Forest you’ll be unsure where to start, as you’ll have no weapons, food and drink. Your first objective should be getting some kind of shelter before the night, so you can sleep and save. Open up your Inventory by pressing , then interact with the Emergency Pack to be given the Tactical Axe which will allow you to gather the necessary materials for the Hunting Shelter.
How To Build A Hunting Shelter
You can choose to create a building using your own design, but for the sake of time it’s advised you use the templates the game gives you for your first build, so you can learn how the building works. Open up your Guide Book by pressing , then hold to bring up the crafting section. Here you’ll want to select the first option, then select the Hunting Shelter and you’ll be presented with a template that you’ll need to place.
Put it down in down in your desired location, ideally somewhere flat and near some water, then you’ll need to gather 5 Log, 6 Sticks and 7 Stones. Logs you can get by cutting down any of the 1000 of nearby trees. Sticks can either be found on the floor or by destroying bushes to cause them to fall. However, a stick isn’t always guaranteed to drop, but it seems to drop more often when destroying the red bushes. Finally, Stones can be found scattered on the floor, but more commonly near beaches.
After you’ve acquired all the materials, return to the template and press until you’ve placed everything, then it’ll be ready for use. Now you’ll be able to hold to save your game and to sleep to advance time. However, beware that when you sleep your Hunger and Thirst Meter will be depleted, so you’ll want to make sure you have some water/food available for the next morning.
