  • There are two types of ropes players can collect: a Regular Rope used for crafting or a Zipline Rope used for well, zip lines.
  • Rope helps craft some of the most critical early-game equipment and helps players protect themselves faster.

How To Obtain Rope

In the early game, a rope is a vital crafting material you must gather immediately. Players can craft a bow, repair tool, or bone armor by using rope as a crafting material. Various other items are crafted with a rope, too, providing immense benefits for someone who has just started.

Currently, the game does not allow players to craft a rope like you could in The Forest; therefore, your only option is to explore for them. And trust us, if you don’t know the right places to look for a rope, you’ll have a hard time tracking this material.

Here are all the locations we know so far that contain a rope in Sons of the Forest:

  • Caves
  • Abandoned Camps
  • Cannibal Camps
  • Beach/Seaside
  • Crash Sites
  • Cliff Edges
  • 3D Printer Rooms

1. Caves

Players can access and explore many of the cave systems in the game. You can find caves on your GPS with a white cave-shaped icon. These caves provide multiple supplies, including Ropes.

Check the Cave Entrance, as it usually has a Rope spawned there. If not, you must dive deeper into the cave and look for a Rope.

2. Abandoned Camps

Rope At A Camp 

Wherever there are traces of human beings, chances are, these places have Ropes of both types. Abandoned Camps exist all over the island; just look for a camp-shaped icon on your GPS. Explore these camps and collect a Rope and various other important supplies.

3. Cannibal Camps

I strongly recommend Cannibal Camps, filled with lots of Rope spawn rate but sadly infested with huge cannibals ready to feast on you. If you are not armed, do not try collecting Rope from here.

These camps are unavailable on the map, but many exist, so you might run across here quite early. Once you do find a cannibal camp and kill the cannibals, start looting crates and containers for Rope. Some of it might be lying around on the ground, too.

4. Beach/Seaside

Walking on the shore, you sometimes bump into shipwrecks, debris, and even bodies. All these things carry a Rope with them a majority of the time. This way is the easiest and quickest to collect a Rope, especially for players in the early game.

5. Crash Sites

You may find crashed helicopters while exploring. These sites have crates and other items; you can find Rope on these sites. There are dead bodies here carrying supplies, too.

After the initial cutscene, look at the crash site nearby; you might get a Rope right off.

6. Cliff Edges

Whenever you run across cliffs, I advise players to go to its edge and walk or climb until you find valuable items, including a Rope. You can not find the cliff location marked on your map; therefore, keep exploring the environment till you run across one.

7. 3D Printer Rooms

Watch your map for green signals indicating a 3D Printer Room location. The area is pretty rare but contains a generous amount of loot, and if you are lucky, you may find a lot of Rope as loot here.

Not to forget, 3D printers themselves are a useful material, so whether you are looking for Rope or not, always check out those green signals on your map.

Types Of Ropes

You will run across two types of Ropes:

  • A Regular Rope
  • A Zipline Rope

Both these ropes have different uses and benefits and can be found in the same locations we have mentioned. The biggest visible difference between the two is that a Regular Rope is round, although the Zipline Rope is folded in an 8-shaped knot.
