Painted Mutants, also known as Painted Cannibals, are mutants that were added in update v0.54 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Painted mutants are their own distinct group. Painted mutants come in male and female forms. Regardless of gender, they will have small black crosses all over their body. They are noticeably stronger and faster than their counterparts, the regular mutants. Painted mutants have been observed traveling with fire mutants. Like the regular mutants, painted mutants usually follow a leader. They can also be backed up via intimidation, like regular mutants.

They are stronger and have more health than regular mutant though less than the masked mutants. There is no skinny variation of the painted mutant. They are frequently encountered in packs rather than solo.

Male Painted Mutants[edit | edit source]

Female Painted Mutants[edit | edit source]

Painted Mutant Leaders[edit | edit source]

Painted mutant leaders are one of the rarest mutant spawns. Instead of being painted white-gray and covered in tiny black crosses, these mutants are a dirty gray with a large red cross on their chest. Painted mutant leaders have one large red cross painted on their chest instead of several black crosses all over their body (possibly a homage to Dr. Cross). They also carry a skull on a stick on their back. These are presumably stronger than the normal painted mutants.

Story[edit | edit source]

It is not clear what the cross paintings on the painted mutants represent. They may be references to Dr. Cross (although the Cannibals never demonstrate the ability to spell) or to the Christian iconography dispersed throughout the island.
