However, eventually you won’t be able to carry in more, so you’ll be forced to leave them which is not something you want to do in a survival. Thankfully, Storage in Sons of The Forest is relatively simple to craft, as all you’ll need is a lot of "Stick" iconSticks which 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. Besure to have a decent melee weapon equipped, such as a Spear so you can defend yourself against wild enemies or cannibals. Alternatively, you can send out "Kelvin" iconKelvin to fetch for some sticks.

How To Craft Storage

Once you’ve acquired the required amount sticks for the type of storage you desire, open up the "Guide Book" iconGuide Book by pressing B-Key then hold X-Key to bring up the crafting section, then you’ll want to select the Option which is the fourth one down and select the type of storage you want. Here you’ll be presented with a template that you’ll need to place. After you’ve found a spot and placed it down, press E-Key to place the required amount of materials, then it’ll be ready for use.
