Shotgun in Sons of the Forest

To ensure safety to the fullest, in Sons of the Forest, you must arm yourself with weapons that are both effective and reliable. While the bow and arrow is a great long-range weapon, sometimes players need something that packs a little more punch. That’s where the Shotgun comes in.

The Shotgun is an incredibly powerful weapon that can take down even the toughest enemies with a single shot. However, it does have its drawbacks. For one thing, it’s not very accurate at long range, so players will need to get up close and personal to make the most of it. Additionally, it can only hold one shell at a time, so players will need to be careful with their shots.

Despite its limitations, the Shotgun is an incredibly useful weapon that can be a real lifesaver in a pinch. When used in combination with other weapons like the bow and arrow, players can create a formidable arsenal that will allow them to survive in the forest for as long as possible. Let’s get into the recipe real quick.

How to Craft Shotgun

Now here is the thing. You cannot craft a Shotgun. What you have to do is, you have to dig it out from a very specific location.

To find the Shotgun, take out your GPS Tracker. Next, head toward the Purple-colored pinpoint location like the picture down below. It is in the North-Western part of the map. Pretty much at the top corner, to be more specific.

You have to dig out the Shotgun from a grave

You will soon reach out to a grave with a Cross engraved. All you have to do is now take out your shovel and start digging out that poor man’s grave. The Shotgun might have been engraved in with him like it was his favorite toy. You will see how tightly he is hugging that monster.

Anyway, like he would ever need it again or something. Just grab it, leave the grave as it was, if you may, and start shooting.

Ammo for the Shotgun

By this time, you already know how much hot commodity ammo is in Sons of the Forest. However, you will find Shotgun ammo mostly in caves, cannibal camps, and bunkers. If you are lucky enough, some of the containers might even have some to offer you.

Now the last piece of advice I would like to throw out is never give Virginia the Shotgun. She is already ruthless. Just don’t make a terminator out of her by assigning her with the Shotgun, or will you?

And that is all I had for the Katana in Sons of the Forest. Check out our other cooked materials, like all console commands and cheats, and how to get a shovel in Sons of the Forest. Prosst!
