Fire Mutants, also known as Firemen or Fire Thrower Mutants, are a unique ranged type of mutant that was added in update v0.01 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

They are usually sent to attack the player's base. They can however occasionally be part of day and night Patrols, if the player has highly raised hostility.

The fire mutant carries a fire torch with several tennis balls hanged on his belt. They will attempt to throw the lit tennis ball at the player if he is a certain distance away from him, inducing burning damage. If the player is in immediate striking distance, the Fire thrower will attack with its torch instead.

Fire mutants often lack precision, which can be used to the player's advantage if there are multiple nearby mutants.

There was a rarer but deadly variant called the dynamite mutant, carrying and throwing dynamite sticks. It was added and removed within the same update cycle (v0.28).

Combat[edit | edit source]

Fire mutants should be killed in priority during an attack as it can ignite trees and cause damage to the player's base. One strategy is to rush in and kill them via melee weapon. Keeping close quarters will prevent the Fire thrower from launching projectiles at the player.

Ranged weapons, especially fire arrows are effective, though explosives and the flare gun might be better saved for stronger opponents.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In previous versions of the game, fire mutants were immune to fire.
