I survived an entire week in Sons of the Forest earlier than discovering a flashlight, and I actually want I would gotten it sooner. For one, I lastly have a use for all of the batteries I am discovering in cannibal camps, however extra importantly I can scour the island’s bone-chilling caves and truly see where I am at (the lighter and torch simply weren’t slicing it).
Like all the forest’s biggest discoveries, the flashlight awaits you at a grotesque scene: a person hanged from a cliff by a rope, surrounded by alcohol. His unlucky finish is our reward.
Sons of the Forest flashlight: Where to seek out it
The flashlight will be discovered at one of many purple point-of-interest markers seen in your GPS firstly of the game. You are on the lookout for the marker simply northwest of the central snowy mountains, close to the tip of a north/south river. There is a foot path that leads on to it, however take into account slicing by means of the timber to keep away from close by cannibal camps.
Hold your GPS out and, when you get shut, it’s going to begin beeping. The nearer you get the extra it beeps. In case you strategy from the west you will in all probability see the hanging physique first (otherwise you may miss it completely like me, as he kinda blends in with the cliff face):
Poor man. In any case, I snapped this screenshot about eight seconds after consuming a human leg. Under his hanging physique is a few free alcohol (used for molotov cocktails), however we’re not getting anything from him till we minimize him down.
Stroll across the cliff on both facet till you discover a slope to the highest. Return to the beeping marker, this time from the highest of the cliff, and you will find a small boulder with the rope tied round it (and extra booze). Give the boulder a couple of swings of the axe to chop the rope.
Return to the underside of the cliff, and subsequent to his physique you will discover the flashlight. Loot the physique itself and you may additionally discover a GPS locator, which I promptly provided to my three-armed pal Virginia so I might lastly see her on the map like Kelvin.
The flashlight is a everlasting addition to your stock and cannot be dropped. You may discover it close to the knife to the left of the crafting area. When the flashlight runs out of its default batteries, you may change them by “combining” the flashlight with a pack of batteries (discovered simply above the crafting area, in case you have any). The flashlight additionally has a devoted shortcut key by default: L for “let there be gentle”.
