Numerous locations are locked behind a Keycard, demanding players to increase their exploration strategies and gain access to uncover the secrets behind the mysterious activities in the forest. For that instance, players must get on all the Keycards in the game to pave the way for a smooth playthrough. 

I will guide you through getting all the keycards used in several locations throughout the Sons of the Forest.

Key Takeaways

  • Three sequential Keycards are essential: Maintenance, VIP, and Guest.
  • To acquire the Maintenance Keycard, head to the northeastern green encircled area, use a shovel to unearth the metal hatch, and retrieve the keycard from an underground base.
  • Use the shovel at this spot and open the revealed hatch to access the Maintenance Keycard.
  • Look for the VIP Keycard in the northwestern marked area, navigate through a cave, and obtain it from a security room desk.
  • Obtain the Guest Keycard by accessing a cave entrance marked on the map, using the Maintenance Keycard to unlock a facility, and retrieving the Guest Keycard from a round table in the guest lobby.

Maintenance Keycard

The earliest essential card is the Maintenance Keycard, which is crucial for progression. It demands traversing a volatile world with lurking cannibals.

Look for it in the northeastern green-encircled area near a beautiful lake and trees, marked by a shovel icon. Also, I will advise players to stay vigilant during your search, as the place is lurking with all types of enemies.
