Sometimes, you may come across unique items, such as a rope gun, rebreather or shovel . Some caves also hide bunker entrances. Make sure to be on your guard, as you may encounter mutants. Caves are dark - it is worth equipping yourself with a light source, such as a torch, flare, or flashlight.

The dead members of the helicopter crew often leave GPS Locators on their bodies. These devices are used to mark targets and areas on the map. Other uses include giving the locator to Virginia, so you'll always know her position on the map.

The Katana is a unique weapon and can only be found in 1 place, specifically the bunker where the Golden Armor is also located. This weapon is great for melee combat, as it destroys the opponent much faster than clubs or spears.
A unique item found in one of the caves. Rope Gun is used to facilitate exploration while visiting caves. Thanks to it, you will have an easier time exploring hard-to-reach areas. To work, the device needs grappling hooks, which can be crafted by the player or found on the island.
A unique weapon - only one appears on the entire island. It doesn't do that much damage as expected from a unique weapon, but it uses small rocks as ammunition, and these can be found almost everywhere.
The shovel is one of the basic items to have while playing Sons of the Forest. Thanks to it, you will be able to dig out bunker hatches, which often contain the so-needed keycards. To get a shovel, you'll need to have Rope Gun and Rebreather already. View the map to find their expected locations.
This unique weapon is found in one of the grave locations - you'll need a shovel to be able to dig them. Shotgun is a very powerful firearm, invaluable when fighting enemies .

There is only one Rebreather location on the island - in a cave in the north-western part of the map. The item allows saying underwater, unlocking previously unavailable underwater locations. Getting the Rebreather is the first step towards obtaining a Shovel.
To find the location of the Revolver, consult the map. It is found in one of the bunkers, but to dig out the entrance hatch, you'll need a Shovel. Revolver requires 9mm rounds, which are found in various locations in the world, most of the time in abandoned camps and caves.
