Sons of the Forest gun locations


The Pistol can be found in two locations on the Sons of the Forest map. The first and arguably easiest location to find the Pistol is just off the coast of the western cove. When standing on the beach of the cove, players can look out on the water to see a floating raft.

Swim out and board the raft to find the Pistol on top of a book on the raft’s floor. Beware, as the raft is guarded by sharks, which will appear after you board the raft and try to swim back.


On the northwestern side of the map, players will find a GPS Locator, indicated by a purple marker with an exclamation mark. At this location, players will need to use the shovel to dig up the grave under the cross. In the grave, the Shotgun can be found.


Players can find the Revolver on the northeastern side of the map, in the Golf Course Digsite beside a dead worker in the first room.

Stun Gun

Sons of the Forest’s Stun Gun can be found in one of the first caves you’ll find if you spawned on the north side of the map. From this spawn point, follow the coast towards the cove and you should find an inlet that leads to a cave.

Enter the cave and progress through until you find a hanging body that will have the Stun Gun on it.

Rope Gun

In the west, players can find a cave just below a body of water on the map. In this cave, players will need to progress through the cave until they find a suitcase with the Rope Gun in it. They will then need to use the Rope Gun to escape the cave.
