How to Get Tactical Axe in Sons of the Forest
The Tactical Axe is one of the easiest weapons to find, as it's included by default in your Emergency Pack as soon as your start the game. All you need to do is press the 'I' button on your keyboard to open the emergency pack. There, you'll find a bunch of tools lying on the sheet, including the Tactical Axe.
How to Get Modern Axe in Sons of the Forest
To obtain the Modern Axe in Sons of the Forest, head to the northwestern part of the island where two large rivers flow. You'll come across a campsite in disarray, filled with various items like Meds, Ammo, and vodka bottles for crafting Molotov Cocktails.
Among the tents, you'll find a dead Merc propped up against one. The Modern Axe is embedded in their chest. Approach the Merc, and interact with the axe using the "E" button to add it to your inventory.
How to Get Firefighter Axe in Sons of the Forest
Before getting the Firefighter Axe, you'll need to find Shovel and Rebreather first. Once you have them, make your way to the Maintenance Hatch A, North West of the island. You can find this location marked on the map with a green marker.
Upon reaching Maintenance Hatch A, use your Shovel to dig in the area marked by a shovel icon. It may take a few attempts to locate and open the hatch. Once it's open, descend the ladder into the bunker. Switch to your flashlight to navigate through the dark interior and proceed down the corridor until you find a case containing the Firefighter Axe. Finally, open the case, retrieve the axe, and add it to your inventory.
How to Get Combat Knife in Sons of the Forest
Similar to the Tactical Axe, you'll already have a Combat Knife in your emergency pack. Simply press the 'I' button on your keyboard to open the emergency pack. There, you'll find a bunch of tools lying on the sheet, including the Combat Knife.
How to Get Machete in Sons of the Forest
You can find the Machete in Sons of the Forest on the north part of the island. Look at the map to see its exact location. Once you arrive in that area, you'll see red lifeboats on the beach. The Machete is in one of them. You can take it by interacting with it.
How to Get Katana in Sons of the Forest
To get the powerful sword, Katana, in the Sons of the Forest game, you need to find a special card called the Maintenance Keycard. We won't explain where to find the card here because we already did that in another guide. Once you have the keycard, head to the bunker located east of the island and use it to open the locked door.
After that, follow a path until you find a yellow or orange door. Then, keep walking down the hallway on the left until you see a bunker with the number "2" on the wall. Finally, go inside and turn right through the second door to find the room with the Katana sword.
How to Get Putter in Sons of the Forest
There are two places where you can find a putter in a game. The first one is at the southeastern point on your GPS. The second one is on the golf course beside a buggy at one of the holes.
If you go to the southeastern location, you'll find an underground bunker with lots of rooms and hallways. When you get inside, turn on your flashlight and keep going until you fall through a hole. At this point, you'll see many paths, but you should take the first one out and use the Maintenance key card to open a door. Then, you'll find a living room with sofas and furniture. On one of the sofas, there's a dead body with the putter on his head. Press the 'E' button to pick up the putter, and now you have it.
How to Get Guitar in Sons of the Forest
Before we get started, it's important to note that finding the guitar requires a VIP keycard, which can be found in the northeastern part of the map. Once you have it, Guitar can be found in a bunker on the west side of the map.
Use your GPS to find the cave entrance, then use a torch or lighter to light your way through the tunnel until you reach a locked door. Use the keycard to unlock it and go into a big hall.
Next, go left from the musical area and pass the gym until you see a glass door. Go through the door, and you'll see some dining tables. Head upstairs on the left, near the dining area, pass the swimming pool, and you'll find the guitar on the bar table.
How to Get Chainsaw in Sons of the Forest
To find the chainsaw in Sons of the Forest, go to the west of the snowy mountains and south of the river. Look for a small cave near a stream, and go through a long corridor using the Maintenance Keycard to open locked doors.
You'll face mutants along the way and go through a lobby area, glass doors, and two grand staircases. When you reach a room with an indoor pool, use the Guest Keycard to enter the next room. The chainsaw is in a corpse sitting on a yellow bean bag in that room.
How to Get Stun Baton in Sons of the Forest
To get the Stun Baton in Sons of the Forest, head to the eastern part of the island near a small waterfall. Look at the image for the exact location. Start by heading towards the beach, then go deep into the forest, following a small river until you see a large lake.
Turn right and walk along the riverbank, passing a few waterfalls. The Stun Baton is at the bottom of one of these waterfalls on a rock. To get it, approach the pile and hold down the E key.
So there you have it. That's everything you need to know about obtaining every melee weapon in Sons of the Forest.
