Crossbow in Sons of the Forest #

The Crossbow is a weapon used for demons! It’s an AoE attack that will affect demons while you are holding it out in your right hand.

The Crossbow has no durability, doesn’t require additional items, and can’t be crafted into something else, so this is the final form.

Requirements to Obtain>

Requirements to Obtain #

Cave, Bunker, Combat, Maintenance Keycard, Gun Rope, Rebreather, & Shovel - Some items require the player to solve a puzzle or use other collected items to obtain. For example, you may need to dig into the ground to find an item, so in situations like that, you will need a shovel.

The Gun Rope, Rebreather, and Shovel are all requirements to obtain the Maintenance Keycard. They are not required while inside the Cave/Bunker to access the Crossbow, however.

Once past the Maintenace Door, you will enter a hydroponics research area. In the second room in between the third row of plant specimens, you can find the crossbow next to a dead body. There will be 3 bolts in the wall and a blood trail to the body to let you know that’s the row where the crossbow is located (See below).

Obtain Once>

Obtain Once #

The Crossbow can only be obtained once. If the item had other spawn locations (Which may happen in the future), they would despawn preventing you from picking up multiple versions of the item. This is how Sons of the Forest enables the players to have multiple options when looting major items.


Conclusion #

There are no requirements for the Crossbow and there is only 1 known location to obtain it. So, if you want to collect all the items in Sons of the Forest, make sure you head to the marked spot and collect your Crossbow!
