Sons of the Forest features various unique and picturesque locations to find amidst the terror of being hunted by mutants and cannibals. Some locations are harder to find than others and some even offer some great loot to claim, if you can make it there, and one such location is the raft.
Getting to the raft can be dangerous, especially if you're new to the game and don't know how to get there safely. So in this guide, we'll show you how to find the raft's location and how to get there in Sons of the Forest.
How to Find and Get to the Raft in Sons of the Forest
The raft's location in Sons of the Forest can be found quite early in the game, thanks to Endnight Games giving us default markers that show some points of interest on the map. One of these is the Raft, which is found by looking out for the purple marker that's out in the ocean.
More specifically, it will be located off the coast next to the large bay on the west side of the island. So while finding it can be simple, it's getting there that proves tough, but we have a solution for that as well. The raft is surrounded by sharks, which can make it dangerous to swim there at first. The only way to make it here safely is to wait until the day so you can see through the water.
From there, find the part of the shore that's closest to the raft and wait until the sharks clear out of your way. Once they do, make your way through the water quickly to the raft. It should be easy to do since the sharks take some time to circle back to the raft.
What is inside the Raft in Sons of the Forest?
Now that you've reached the raft, inside, you'll find a few items that can help you survive your time on the island (and get you back to shore safely). Inside, you'll find a GPS locator, some other randomized loot, and, most importantly, a pistol.
You can use the pistol to shoot the sharks in the water or wait for your chance to get back to the island safely and conserve ammo. And that's how you can find the Raft in Sons of the Forest and claim the loot inside to help you survive your time on the island.
