The Forest: Crafting Guide – All the Recipes

If we talk about games full of mystery and darkness, The Forest is a title that cannot be absent. Belonging to the genre of survival and terror, that videogame knows how to reach the deepest part of our being and keep us with our soul in a thread during every minute of the game.

It is for this reason that from HDGamers we have created a long compilation list on one of the most relevant aspects so that you have a long life and do not end up being devoured by the natives. In this The Forest Crafting Guide you can find all the objects, armor and weapons that are necessary to fight your attackers and thus survive in this dark land.

The Forest: How to Craft

To be able to create the necessary objects during your adventure the procedure is quite simple. Open your inventory and select the right items with the right mouse button. If you do it correctly, the image of a gear will appear, which will warn you that you can combine these elements and create a new product.

Once the new object is created, you must add it to your inventory by right clicking on it. A clear example of how to craft in The Forest can be found by creating a molotov bomb. Place both the cloth and alcohol on the basis of craftsmanship and you will see that the gear is shown before you. Press on it and save your Molotov cocktail without problems.
