The slingshot is a ranged weapon in added in update v0.71 of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

When holding down the attack-button, the player will stretch the slingshot and aim forward (without a crosshair). Releasing the attack-button will launch the small rock forward. Hitting the right mouse button while the slingshot is stretched will release the throwable rock without launching it. The longer the slingshot is held before launching (up to a maximum), the farther the throwable rock will go. The trajectory of the throwable rock will arch slightly, though it does have an area of effect damage when colliding. The storage of throwable rocks can be extended from 10 to 25 by crafting a small rock bag

It is important to note that aiming your slingshot may require some practice though it is easier to use than any of the bows. It is not wise to aim your shots with the center of the screen as its tilted at an angle. Instead, it is better to observe your throwable rock and imagine how it will fly through the air, accounting its position and gravity.

Using the slingshot against enemies is not recommended. Its damage is very low and it will take a very long time to kill cannibals and mutants. Though there is an exception for mutant babies, the slingshot will kill them in one hit. It is unknown if the slingshot can perform headshots as of yet, though it is most likely that it doesn't.

The slingshot can be excellent for baiting enemies to attack. If they are hit by it, they will charge at the player. This can be good to bait enemies into traps.

The slingshot can be useful as a distraction tool. If the player shoots a rock at a tree, it can cause a lot of noise which will cause enemies to check out the noise. The player can shoot at the ground, though the noise is reduced.
