Lookout Post

From The Forest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Lookout Posts, also referred to in some patch notes as Fishing Stands, are structures that appear to be created by the cannibals, though they are never seen using the posts. They are long and tall, seemingly made up of the same driftwood as the cannibal camps located near water. They are all located near water of some kind, whether that be a beach, pond, or river.

Purpose[edit | edit source]

Cannibals have not been seen using the structures, however it is obvious from their design that the lookout posts are meant to be climbed in order to scout out the surrounding area. The player can use it for this purpose, or you can climb up and away from hungry cannibals below. Lookout posts cannot be destroyed by cannibals or mutants, making them extremely useful for fighting enemies if the player has ranged weaponry such as a bow.
