How to get rope in Sons of the Forest

There are a few different places where you can get ropes in Sons of the Forest, including:

  • Caves.
  • Cannibal camps.
  • Abandoned campsites.
  • Bunkers.
  • Random containers.
  • Abandoned ships.

Caves, cannibal camps, abandoned camps and bunkers

The most common thing to look for when searching for ropes are places where people (or enemies) are located, or where they used to be located. During our experience, we found that caves, cannibal camps, and abandoned camps are the best places to consistently get rope in Sons of the Forest.

Cannibal camps and most abandoned camps will not be marked on your GPS tracker map. Instead, listen to music to find an abandoned camp.

You can also be captured by an enemy, who will take you to their cannibal camp, but we do not recommend this unless you have a recent save, as if you are caught again, you will die and return to your last save.


You have a chance to get a rope every time you open a container. These are mostly random spawns, but we’ve found that there’s a higher chance of getting rope from a container when you’re in (or very close to) a camp or cave.

Even if you don’t currently need rope at all, we recommend searching every container you find and collecting all the rope you can.

You can even open wooden boxes to search for ropes.

abandoned ships

If you are near the beach and need rope, we also recommend searching the coast for abandoned boats. It’s not worth looking for them unless In fact You need some rope, as they don’t always contain loot, but if you pass a ship, it’s best to take a quick look at the debris.

Just be careful if you have to swim to get to a boat, as there are sharks in the water that will hurt you even in Pacific mode.

How to get zip line rope in Sons of the Forest

Zip line rope is different from regular rope as it is used to make zip lines for your Rope Gun, which is used to easily traverse the island and its caves.

While you can find zipline ropes in the same areas as regular ropes, you can also get zipline ropes by crafting them at Sons of the Forest.

To make a zip line rope you need:

Once you have grappling hooks and rope, open your inventory with ‘I’ and place them in the crafting section to make zipline ropes.

You can get ropes in the areas mentioned above, but you need to get grappling hooks using a 3D printer. It costs 100 ml of printer resin to make grappling hooks.

There are other 3D printer locations, but we easily found one in a bunker on the west side, just northwest of the lake that has five rivers flowing into it.

Can you make strings in Sons of the Forest?

No, as of this writing, you cannot make ropes in Sons of the Forest. This is one of the big differences from its predecessor, The Forest, allowing you to create an incredibly useful resource.

However, since making ropes was not originally available in The Forest but was added in a patch, there might be a way to add ropes to Sons of the Forest in a future update.

However, we don’t officially know for sure if the rope crafting ability is coming, so in the meantime you’ll just have to get the rope from one of the places listed above.

Zipline Rope Gun Location in Sons of the Forest

The Rope Gun is located at the end of a dangerous cave on the western side of the island, just south of the lake that has five rivers flowing into it.

If you are not playing in Pacific mode, there will be many enemies in this cave on the way to getting the Rope Gun. We recommend you take a good weapon or many explosives with you to deal with them.

Make sure you also save your game before heading to the cave!

It will take some time to find the Rope Gun in this cave, as it is located right at the end. You’ll know you’re close to achieving it once you have to blow up the enemy on the wall blocking your path.

Once this is done, continue straight until you reach a narrow tunnel that leads to a steep path that eventually forks. Follow the path to the left and continue forward to find the Rope Gun in a black box at the end.

You can then use the Rope Gun on the zip line above you to exit the cave.

Now that you have Rope Gun, you can use your zipline rope to create quick traversal routes or to explore new areas in bunkers and caves.
