Thanks to Patch 02, everyone has been asking how to access the admin panel in Sons of the Forest. We have put together a guide and some commands on how to do this.
How to access the Admin Panel in Sons of the Forest
In order to be able to access the admin panel, you will need to be a host of a multiplayer game. Its as simple as clicking multiplayer from the main menu and either continuing one you have already or creating a new one.
Once the Host has set the game and you are in the world, they can press the Enter key and a chat box will appear on the right side. Type the word “cheatstick” without the quotations and press the Enter key again.
You will see nothing change except when you press the F1 key. Now you’ll notice a massive drop down of the admin panel commands that you can use.
In order to use these commands in the admin panel, you will notice a box at the top of the screen and you can type what you wish and press the Enter key for it to activate. Most commands require that you turn them on and off, so you will have to do “cavelight on” to enable and “cavelight off” to disable the command.
You can also type “items” and you’ll notice commands that are relevant to that will pop up.
Seen in the images below, I have done addallitems. Which has given me ALL the items in the game.
