Sons of the Forest is a horror game where you will visit many places that won’t shed even a tiny bit of light. Players may need the assistance of a flashlight. It is much better to use the flashlight in places like caves or any other areas to find the resources properly.
Where To Find Flashlight
The nearest place to find the flashlight is the point where you spawn. This is towards the northwest corner of the map with a purple mark. You can use the map to reach the location. Do note that the mark on the map will only show when you are near the destination. You will also hear a beeping sound when you get really close to the location.
How To Obtain The Flashlight
Once you reach the location, you will find a body hanging from the tree via a rope. The body will be hanging on a cliff, so you must be careful while reaching it.
You should find the source from where the rope is tied and then untie or cut the rope via an axe. This will cause the body to fall to the ground. After the body falls, go all the way down and look near the body to find a flashlight placed near it. Just press the button ‘E’ to equip the flashlight.
You can even opt to throw an object like a rock on the body for it to fall down. This can be done if you choose a rock from your inventory and throw it at it. You must aim for the spot that connects the head of the dead body and the rope. Hitting this exact area will cause the body to fall down.
You can use the flashlight by pressing the button ‘L’ during the night. There won’t be a difference in brightness during the day. You must know that players have two sources to use light, the UV Lighter and the flashlight. Both are easy to use, but the range of flashlights is much more than the UV lighter.
There is a drawback while carrying the flashlight, you should note that it runs on a battery and which can run out when you are inside the cave. You must charge the batteries or use them in special circumstances. Players can charge the flashlight by placing it together with the battery. You can find batteries in various crates or when you come across a dead body.
Crafting The Torch
These materials aren’t rare, rather, they can be easily obtained within the game. The items required are:
- 1x Cloth
- 1x Stick
After getting your hands on them, just open the inventory and put both of these items in the gray area. Just click the right button and move it to the far upper right corner. This will result in a torch being crafted.
Using Cheat Code
There are some cheats that can provide you with an infinite amount of items, and it eases your game. One of the cheats is applied to the light source. You can use ‘WeMod’ to get an infinite flashlight battery.
Do remember you must download the WeMod software for this to work. This way, you won’t have to spend many hours searching for batteries or using a flashlight, being scared of it running out. You must use these cheats while you are offline so you can’t be banned.
There are several other cheat codes related to light that can be applied, such as:
- Cavelight: You can also use another kind of cheat ‘cave light’ which will make you a source of light.
- Createlight: This will give you a floating source of light, and it can be used quite effectively in caves or other places with environments.
How To Upgrade The Flashlight
You can find up to 2 updates regarding the flashlights and both of them are available on the map. Players can add these upgrades to the flashlight for better workability.
First Flashlight Upgrade
The first one is relatively easy to get. The exact location for this will be found inside a cave. This cave is located near a frozen lake. The indication about reaching the correct place is that you will spot three dead bodies lying on the frozen lake just before the entrance of it.
You might require two things to enter the cave. These are:
You must be extremely careful while entering the cave, and upon traveling inside, you will come across a dead body. The flashlight will be placed nearby, so just take it and walk back. Going to the cave is quite helpful as on your way inside; you can also find a shovel which is quite valuable for other things.
Second Flashlight Upgrade
This location will be available on the southeastern part of the map, though it is a little more inclined towards the right side of a lake.
This card will be required at the entrance, which is located near the rocks. After entering, you must travel to the left side of the brown door. This will take you to an enemy, which is a giant monster. You have two choices here:
- Either kill the enemy and then move but do note it requires time and effort
- Or you can just run from the side to avoid all the effort and save some time
Right after you are done with the enemy, you must move inside the first door and then take the door, which is second at your right side. Once you enter, you will observe a body lying on the floor. If you examine the room carefully, you will find the flashlight near a chess board placed on the table.
