Heads are body limbs chopped from from dead cannibals, leaving behind a torso. They were added in update v0.01 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Heads can be chopped from cannibals corpses using an axe or any cutting melee weapon. It can be used to build effigies and as a melee weapon. It is also used in crafting to make the Head Bomb.

Heads can be placed on the drying rack. They will dry out and change color though they cannot be consumed this way. They do not spoil, therefore only have one state.

As a weapon, the Head consumes an average amount of energy, and is rather weak against enemies. It cannot be used to block.

The Head can be placed on a fire, and leaving it to burn yields a skull. Unlike Legs and Arms, it cannot be eaten by the player from the fire.

The player can only carry 1 Head in their inventory. The player can carry a Head Bomb plus a head at the same time.

Heads can be added to stews and consumed. The calorie amount is 600, it is classed as meat ingredient, and it is most likely classed a body part so it will most likely have reduced fullness, it will decrease sanity, and it may damage the player. The values of energy fullness obtained from eating a head from a stew are extremely low, they are mainly useful for calories.
