Players who remember sliding around on a turtle shell back in the days of The Forest will no doubt remember the Sinkhole skip and the turtle shell roller coasters in creative. The good news those days are not just nostalgia, as you can get Sleds in the Sons of the Forest. However, the acquisition is a little different, as Turtle Shells are not the sled item anymore, Printed Sleds are! Here is how to get a Sled in the Sons of the Forest.
How to get a Sled in the Sons of the Forest
To get a Sled in the Sons of the Forest, you must find the 3D Printer Cave. You can visit the small cave below the pond under the helicopter mountain spawn to get there. If you are traveling from the beach spawn, you must head towards the flat part of the island, where the streams run off towards beaches. We have attached in image with the GPS present in the screenshot so that you can find the location of this cave.
When you get near the cave, the area should start flagging it with one of the blue POI markers on the GPS.
Once you arrive at the cave, enter inside and follow the lab down. The first door you come across in the cave lab area is a bedroom with a 3D printer inside. Here you can make a variety of items, like the Flask, but, the one you want here is the Sled.
To create the Sled in the Sons of the Forest, you will need 1000 Resin. The 3D Printer has around 800 Resin already inside it, and there are another 200 on the shelves in the room. You should also have 100 from the helicopter crash, and however more you have thanks to the the various pick-up points in labs, tribal villages and other points of interest you come across.
Once you’ve got the required amount, confirm the print on the laptop, and wait 20 seconds. Make sure to top the 3D Printer up with Resin. Otherwise, it will run out part way through.
How to use the Sons of the Forest Sled
Now that you’ve got your hands on the Printed Sled in the Sons of the Forest, you can now use it. To do so, go into your Inventory by pressing “I”, and then going to the top left of your inventory. You will find the Printed Sled there. Left-click to equip it, and then carry it while you are out in the world.
From there, you can jump and left-click it while it is in your hands to get inside it. If you jumped are going downhill, then you will gradually pick up momentum and zoom across the landscape, until you come to a stop. This makes it a particularly great method for getting down hills at speed.
It will also work wonders in the winter season, as most of the land will be covered in snow. This will remove most of the annoying bumps in the ground thanks to small stumps, rocks, and other obstacles in the way. Therefore, you should have a Sled printed and ready to go the winter months, as it will make traveling during the hardest in-game season much easier.
This concludes everything you need to know about the Sons of the Forest Sled items. Good luck out there, and enjoy your new way of efficiently getting down hills.
