Today, Sons of the Forest received a Patch update. One update opened up an entire new mountain cave system, linking multiple cave entrances around the snowy central mountain! Various item locations have changed too such as the Golden Armor!
New Mountain Cave System
As seen above on our interactive map, these three supply cave entrances – of which had no purpose really before the new update now have much more to explore and obtain!
Remember when entering the cave to bring a lighter and Rebreather for an easier time navigating. Upon entering you’ll be met with a quite nice water reflection aesthetic, however remember this new mountain cave system is full of creatures looking to murder you.
A few sections of the cave system include markings. What do the cave markings mean? Currently, we do not fully know, but in time all should be revealed!
A common theme throughout the cave system is a lot of the gold material and structures found within the game. For those that have progressed through the game – this gold holds a fair amount of significance. Head through this section.
In the new mountain cave system, vertical climbable ropes have been added to assist with the verticality and depth of the caves. It should also be noted that there is several underwater sections of the cave, however they’re linear so do not worry!
As referenced earlier, as we progress through the newly connected system, various gold unearthly structures start appearing. Progress through this bridge-like construct to get deeper in the cave.
After following the cave route through, you are eventually met with a very long rockslide – reaching far deeper into the cave in a one-way system. Slide all the way to the bottom and continue onward.
Eventually, you are going to end up hitting a left and right split, highlighted by a flashlight with several dead cultists. Fortunately the right side of the split doubles back on itself and brings you back to this room. As a result we recommend heading right first.
As mentioned above, should you need to find a point of remembrance, the dead cultists surrounding the light is a key spot to think of in the split room.
A secondary marking can be found within the right side of the split. It is also noteworthy that the north-most Supply Cave entrance can lead you to this section quicker, however, it is also a one-way system. The marking shows several cultists worshipping a currently unknown object.
Heading back through the left split, eventually you will come across a water-filled tunnel sporting a couple of gold bars across the left side. Make sure to follow this along as this section leads you to the best part of the new mountain cave system currently!
Finally, after progressing through the tunnel room and slaying several demons – you arrive at the newly placed Golden Armor! The Golden Armor has recently been moved here from its previous location. The armor is essential to progressing the game, making the new mountain cave system a must explore!
Once you have collected the Golden Armor, proceed on to eventually find another rope upwards. At the back of the golden spaceship, there’s a way up there and you will see a rope. Next, take the rope up to start finding your way out of the cave and it’s gonna be a long one!
Now, we’re not sure why or how this deceased individual is here with a comfortable looking chair but, they are! Next to the chair is several supply crates, make sure to grab the loot!
Do you see where the deceased individual is looking? That’s the way to exit the cave. Walk in that direction and hold the letter E to go out in that cave. Congratulations, survivor! You’ve finished the New Mountain Cave System of Sons Of The Forest.
