The Zipline Gun aids exploration significantly, allowing access to deeper cave areas and easier hill traversal. Crafting it requires a normal rope. To acquire it, navigate a dangerous cave filled with cannibals and mutants, necessitating proper equipment and ample supplies.

Before searching, I strongly advise you to embark well-prepared with medical, food, and water supplies. Carry a long-range weapon like a pistol or bow for defense against threats. Additionally, bring a light source, such as a flashlight, due to the darkness inside the cave.

Alternatively, a peaceful mode exists, eliminating enemy spawns and facilitating easier exploration for the Zipline Gun within the cave.

  1. Enter the cave by squeezing through a crack.
  2. Defeat the cannibals in the flooded room to continue.
  3. Proceed, staying closer to the left side of the cave.
  4. Locate a huge mutant trapped between wall spaces near a dead worker’s body.
  5. My best strategy is to pick one of the two-time bombs nearby, throw it at the mutant, and detonate it. This action will shred the mutant, clearing the path through the wall space.Sons Of The Forest: Zipline Gun Location

Is It Worth It?

In Sons Of The Forest, finding specific tools is crucial for advancing the main story. The Zipline gun, along with the Rebreather, is essential to locate the shovel, a key item for progression.

The Zipline gun serves two main purposes. Firstly, it allows interaction with existing Ziplines across the map, facilitating faster movement. Additionally, it enables players to create personalized Ziplines for ascending and descending hills, crafting escape routes from their base and offering versatile options to tackle various scenarios creatively.

To create a Zipline, aim at your desired location and shoot. Place the other end nearby. Interact with the Zipline to ride it in either direction, as it’s powered and functions uphill. An advantage is that you can reclaim the Zipline rope, restocking your grapple hook ammo.

To operate the Zipline Gun, acquire its necessary ammo by crafting a grappling hook, combining a Rope and a Grappling Hook. Ropes are commonly found in the Zipline Gun cave, abandoned camps, or containers.

Obtain or create grappling hooks using a 3D printer for 100ml of printer resin, which yields two hooks. Combine these items in your inventory to create Zipline Gun ammo for setting up Ziplines.

The Zipline Gun is easy to use and very worth finding. It helps you progress the main quest line while still being a very fun gun to use. The unlock process can be a little tricky fear not, after following this guide, you will know exactly where to look.
