Last update: 22 February 2023

Your survival depends on your ability to craft the right items. Fortunately, the crafting system is designed in such a way as to allow quick producing of useful tools, weapons, or even medicines. On this page of our Sons of the Forest guide you'll find tips on how to efficiently use the crafting interface, and a complete list of craftable items.

Crafting step by step

To craft an item - Sons of the Forest: Crafting and the crafting panel - Resources and crafting - Sons of the Forest Guide

To craft an item:

  1. Enter the inventory menu (the I key) .
  2. Place the cursor on the grey gear symbol, and you'll see a list of crafting recipes, along with simple graphics depicting the required ingredients.
  3. For the items to enter the crafting interface, you need to place the mouse on them and press right mouse button. The chosen items will be moved to the center of the screen. If any of the items is not used in the given recipe, they will be "greyed-out" and you won't be able to click them.
  4. After all needed ingredients are in the center of the screen, the gear icon will become three-dimensional. Once ready, simply press LMB to craft the item. The created item can be used instantly or saved for later.

You can only craft one item at a time, so if you need more of the same item, you'll have to repeat the process.

Remember that entering the crafting interface doesn't pause the game. For that reason, open the inventory only in safe locations so that you aren't attacked.
