Finding Bones in Sons of the Forest
The first way to get bones is to collect them. To do this, you’ll have to roam the numerous camps that you’ll come across everywhere. Within these camps, you’ll regularly find shiny white skeletons. But not only the camps on the surface are suitable for collecting bones. Also in the dark caves of the island are often numerous bones lying around.
Burning Corpses for Bones
Another way to get bones is to burn the carcasses of your enemies. As in The Forest, you can pick up dead cannibals and mutants from the ground with the E key and carry them to any place on the island. However, it might be faster and more effective if you simply burn the corpses on the spot.
Just build a bonfire, pick up the bodies from the ground with E, and carry them to the fire. Put them into the flames with the G key and just wait. After a short time, the flesh is burned and you can collect the remaining bones. You can also burn human remains to get bones. You can typically find these remains in camps or caves.
Use Cheats to Get Bones
A third way to get bones is to enter the corresponding cheat or item ID for bones in the developer console. The item ID for bones is 405, but to enter this ID, you must activate the console first.
Why you Need Bones in Sons of the Forest
