You’ll need to ensure you’re stocked up on weaponry throughout your time with Sons of the Forest. Having the right weapon for the job can literally be the difference between life and death in this game. Having a ranged weapon can give you an advantage in certain encounters. Here’s how to craft a bow in Sons of the Forest.

How to Craft a Bow in Sons of the Forest

Crafting a bow in Sons of the Forest requires three main ingredients for the recipe. You will need the following materials,

  • Sticks
  • Rope
  • Duct tape

You can obtain sticks by chopping down trees with your axe. Luckily you’re in a forest, and trees are in no short supply, so sticks will be the easiest of the three resources you’ll need to craft the bow.

For rope and duct tape, you’ll have a few different options. They are a much more difficult resource to find naturally. However, the starting area of the game should yield some to get you started. So keep an eye out in your spawn location for rope and duct tape. If you’ve happened to use all of the ones in this area, you’ll need to find another way to obtain them.

Duct tape can be found in red cases of yellow-lid containers. Explore and open all of the cases you can to obtain duct tape.

Ropes can be found at the starting area, enemy camps, near the edge of cliffs, and other places where it looks like people have been. Rope is not a natural resource, so you will find it in places manmade.

Once you have all of the ingredients, go to your crafting mat and give the three ingredients to craft the bow.
