Where to find the Rope Gun in Sons of the Forest

To get the Rope Gun, you first need to head to one of the caves on the western side of the island. It’s between the ocean and the snowy mountainscape. It’s also near the place where the helicopter crashed. In case you can’t figure it out, check the image above to find its location.

Before heading inside the cave, just build a small shelter and save the game. This will restore your position in case things go wrong. Also, carry enough food, drinks, and pills to restore your health whenever necessary.

The entrance of the cave will be barricaded, so just break it using the axe you have in your backpack. Once you’re inside the cave, grab all the loot you find on the floor. While you’re continuing your journey inside, expect hostile mutants to attack pretty soon. Kill them using the weapons you have and use the extracted flesh as armor to absorb all hits from further attacks.

Once you’ve moved up the cave, the path will divide into two – take the left route. The cue of you being on the right path is an email, that you’ll find lying on a dead man’s body. Continue moving ahead until you come across a path blocked by a fleshy creature (Sluggy), a couple of dead bodies, and time bombs lying around.

Use one of these time bombs to clear your way. The path is pretty much straightforward from here and as you continue moving forward, expect to encounter mutants and mutant babies twice.

Eventually, you will arrive at the end of the cave, and you’ll find the Rope Gun inside an open suitcase. Grab it and use it to exit the cave from an unmarked shortcut after a few more mutants along the way.

  2. Build a small shelter and save the game before entering the cave.
  3. Take the left route when the road splits.
  4. Clear the blocked path by bombing the Sluggy.
  5. Continue defeating the mutants and move forward.
  6. Find the Rope Gun inside an open suitcase.
