Headshots are a type of damage that was added to The Forest in v0.66. It is similar to Stealth Kills though it is difficult to say whether headshots kill instantly or not.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Headshots, as the name suggests are shots to the head. They currently only apply to cannibals, not mutants.

If a headshot is performed correctly, accounting for the mechanics of the shot and its placement, most of the time it will instantly kill the cannibal.

Currently, only ranged weapons can perform headshots, this includes:

Headshots can be difficult to land, and quite frustrating. Some cannibals such as the skinny cannibals can be difficult to hit due as they crouch quite often and will move around a lot. There is also a higher chance of losing your arrows, as you have to aim up higher. If you miss, the arrow could go over or past them and you could lose the arrow.

Notes[edit | edit source]

--Farket8238 (talk) 16:32, 17 October 2017 (UTC) I performed kill tests on male painted cannibals on Hard mode. It took 11 Normal Arrows or 7 Bone Arrows to kill these cannibals. They were instantly killed by one normal arrow to the head. This indicates that headshots either perform an instant kill, or they do 1100% more damage.
