A selection of weapons and tools in the player's inventory.

Weapons in The Forest are anything that have the ability to kill, excluding Traps.

Weapons are primarily used to defend yourself against enemies encountered all over the Peninsula, but some of them are also valuable tools used to gather resources and hunt animals. For example, axes can be used to chop down trees to gather logs, spears can be used for fishing, the crafted bow or modern bow can be used for hunting and the Flare Gun could be a possible last-resort light source.

Most weapons can receive upgrades, increasing their damage, speed or adding burning/poison damage.

Many other inventory items that can be held by the player can be used as a weapon, like skulls, meats, bones or even body limbs such as legs, heads and arms.

Update History[edit | edit source]

Version Changes
v0.69 You can now poison most weapons by combining them with poison berries, or poison mushrooms.

Weapon speed calculation now clamps negative values so that a slow weapon like the crafted axe with full damage upgrade doesn’t end up with wrong animation speed value and is unable to properly cut down trees
