Sons of the Forest NEW Rifle Location and Guide

As you go through the game Sons of the Forest, you’ll run against progressively formidable foes. Finding the Rifle Location is crucial to increasing your firepower when battling these enemies since you will need all the weaponry you can obtain in the game. This guide offers vital information to help gamers on their adventure as it embark on a mission to discover the rifle’s secret location.

What is a Rifle?

Patch 13 was released with the new sleek bolt-action rifle with a red dot scope, ideal for precision shooting over long distances without magnification. This combination allows players to efficiently eliminate distant targets with accuracy. However, the rifle’s slow reload and limited ammo capacity make it less suitable for direct combat engagements. It inflicts less damage than the Crossbow and slightly more than the Compound Bow with Carbon Fiber Arrows. Moreover, rifle ammo is scarce, requiring judicious use.

Navigating The Rifle Location

When you find the entrance to the cave, carefully make your way inside. It’s important to remember that you need to get the Rebreather before you can find the Rifle position. Long-term underwater research is made possible by this gadget, which is necessary to go to the Rifle site.

New Cave 1

Once you’re inside the cave, follow the long straightaway of this area. You’ll know you’re on the right path if you see a yellow marking on the wall, similar to the image shown below.

You’ll need to kill a lot of mutants here, so proceed with caution as you follow the road. Always staying to the right will help you stay on the proper route, which is crucial when traversing this cave.

As you reach the end of a tiny cliff, continue to veer right. Keep pushing forward along the path until you encounter a small area of deep water that you can swim through while wearing a rebreather. The cave is quite expansive, but if you continue moving toward the back and the lowest point, you’ll eventually find the right place. Try to avoid the dismembered body parts as you swim past them and follow the lengthy underwater tube to emerge on the other side.

New Cave 2

Once you’re done swimming through the water, you’ll encounter numerous mutants in your vicinity. You’ll need to eliminate them to progress further into the area.

Acquiring The Rifle

After eliminating all the mutants, proceed to the far side of the area where you’ll find a man’s body slumped against the cave wall. Continue forward with the same wall on your left. Eventually, you’ll come across two more soldiers hanging out, one of whom is wielding one of the most formidable weapons in the game, the rifle. Take the rifle from this person and begin practicing your aim with some headshots. Congratulations, survivor, you did it!
