As soon as you want to start building more complex items in The Forest such as beds, you might have a hard time. Rope can be hard to find at first, but thankfully it has a crafting recipe. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to make Rope in The Forest.
First off, you can either craft it or find it. That part is up to you. It is quite expensive to craft, so you may want to resort to finding some at the start of the game. If you’re interested in checking out some more The Forest Guides and Best-of lists for PC & PS4, you can check out our dedicated area here.
A few locations on the map have rope lying around. The most common being mutant camps. These camps can be dangerous to visit, as you may run into some cannibals here who’ll attack on sight.
However if you don’t see any, you can go inside and explore the tents. You can find some bodies hanging, as well as nooses. Look for the nooses and interact with them, which will cause your character to dismantle them and provide you with some rope.
This is one of the easier ways to get Rope in The Forest without having to spend a lot of materials crafting it. You can also search other locations such as the Yacht just off the coast, or boats that are destroyed on land.
The Rope supply on the Yacht is limited, and there’s no guarantee that it’ll respawn or that you’ll find more. However it’s always worth venturing out here anyway.
If some areas are just way too dangerous for you to venture too, you may wish to craft rope instead. Unfortunately, it’s quite expensive, costing 7 pieces of cloth for 1 piece of rope. Combine the 7 pieces of cloth inside your backpack. The easiest place to find cloth would be by opening suitcases found on the beach.
Obviously, cloth can have more important uses such as Molotovs, which can be used to harvest bones from cannibals. Cloth can’t be crafted in the-game, making it one of the most needed items in the game. Once you’re out, you are going to struggle to find more. Therefor I recommend you don’t use it to create rope unless it’s urgent.
