What Is The Defensive Wall

One thing that you should know is that the defensive wall does not guarantee that all your enemies will stay out. However, it buys you enough time to come up with a plan or execute your plan B.
As far as building the Sons Of The Forest defensive wall is concerned, it is not a difficult task. However, it will need a lot of resources and time. Now that the basics are out of the way, let us talk about how to build the defensive wall in Sons Of The Forest.
How To Build The Defensive Wall
As we mentioned before, building the defensive wall is not a challenging task, but you will need to invest a lot of time and resources into it. With that being said, all that you need to build the defensive wall is an axe that you will use to acquire as many logs as you need.
Even though collecting logs may seem pretty easy, as it only requires you to cut down trees and then add the logs to your inventory, it is still a challenging task because you will need a lot of logs to make a wall around your shelter.
Something that we suggest is that you should ask for kelvin’s help in collecting logs as it will make your task of building the wall comparatively easier. Moreover, there is no specific plan that you need to follow when it comes to building the defensive wall. That means that you have a free hand at it.
Anyways, once you have enough logs in your inventory, you should follow the steps given below to make the Sons Of The Forest defensive wall:
The first thing that you need to do is take out a log from your inventory and rotate it around in such a way that you end up holding it vertically.
Once you have done that, look towards the ground, and you will see a white circle appear there eventually. That will be your cue to place the log on the ground. Keep repeating the same process until you have secured your shelter to your satisfaction.
That was pretty easy, right? However, to make sure that your wall is as good as it can be, there are some tips that you need to keep in mind.
Even though you are free to do as you please and make a defensive wall that you think is best, we do have some simple suggestions that we highly suggest keeping in mind as they will help you make a strong defensive wall in Sons Of The Forest.
The first one is that you should make your wall at least two logs thick. This will ensure that the wall does not fail against the cannibals who are charging at it. You can make the wall as thick as you want, but a wall that is two logs thick should be sufficient.
In addition to that, you should also make the top of your wall pointy, as it will ensure that the cannibals cannot climb over it. Making the top of the logs pointy is not a challenging task. All that you need to do is whip out your axe and point it towards the top of the wall until you see red lines appear there.
Once that happens, click the left mouse button to hit the log, and you will see the magic happen as to gets carved into a spike. You will need to repeat the same process for each log until you have shaped the top of all of them into spikes.
Furthermore, if you want to make your job of making the Sons Of The Forest defensive wall easier, you should make your base in a dense forest. This way, logs will be available to you readily.
Defensive Wall Gate
Before we talk about how to add a gate to your defensive wall, you should know that it was not possible before. However, after an update on the 9th of March, players can now add a gate to their Sons Of The Forest defensive. That being said, let us talk about how you can do that.
The first thing that you need to do is make sure that you have a log in your inventory. If you do not, acquire one. In addition to that, bear in mind that the defensive wall gate will occupy 5 logs of your wall. Anyways, once you have the log, go up to the wall, and you will see a white dotted line appear across some of the logs.
All that you need to do then is place the log there, and you will have made a defensive wall gate.
