The Can Opener can be obtained relatively early in the game. Here’s how you can find it:

  • The Can Opener is located near a bunch of tents located right next to a frozen lake at the base of the tall mountain in the center of the island. Players should head towards the cave marker on the map, climbing the mountain path until they reach a small ice-covered lake with abandoned tents scattered around.
  • You can find the Can Opener outside the tent that is furthest from the cave entrance. It can be spotted on the ground directly to the left of the tent in the snow.

Once you have acquired the Can Opener, you can finally use it to open canned food.

  • You may come across Canned Food during your exploration of the island. One such canned food can be found near the iced-over lake, close to a snow sled in the same area where the Can Opener is located.
  • You can use the Can Opener with canned food to make it into cat food. Once you have the Cat Food, you can interact with the food to eat it immediately or place it in your inventory.
  • Consuming Cat Food fills the player’s hunger meter significantly.
