The bench is a furniture building that was added in update v0.03 of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player can access it from the Furniture tab of the survival guide. When the player interacts with the wooden bench, they are put into a static sitting animation. The player is able to sit facing either direction on the bench, the direction is determined by which side of the bench the player was on when it was used. The player can still interact with other objects in the game while in the sitting animation provided the objects are within the player's reach.

While sitting, the player will regain energy through an effect called energized. It will restore energy fast while sitting, similar to that of the cassette player. It can be an effective way of restoring energy without the use of consumables. Every seat has the same effect.

Other seats include:
