The hazardous cold of the wilds within Sons of the Forest can be reduced if players get the Winter Jacket item to stay warm during harsher nights.
The Winter Jacket in Sons of the Forest protects players against the harsh cold during the winter months, remaining an item they should try to get soon after their trial for survival begins. Unfortunately, there are regions in the Forest that are far colder than others, preventing players from exploring certain areas until they have found the Winter Jacket. Comprised of thick wools that make a strong layer against the cold, players can find this garment not too far into the wild near one of the Campsites located on the island.
Campsites are scattered throughout the map and are easily found when players use their GPS. Although every Campsite is worth visiting for the items players will find to aid their survival, the Winter Jacket also sits at one of these locations. If players are nervous about exploring far beyond their base to find the Winter Jacket, they are recommended to travel to closer Campsites and stock up on essential items in Sons of the Forest to prepare. Some Campsites have tents where the players can save their game and sleep first in case they need emergency shelter.
Winter Jacket Location in Sons of the Forest
Toward the island’s southwest corner, the Winter Jacket rests in a Campsite next to a waterfall that serves as a backdrop to the tents there. Players can collect other items from two tents at this Campsite, but the Jacket sits beside the one with the rotting corpse inside. Since it is technically a clothing item, players might have to replace an item they were wearing before by navigating the basic controls of Sons of the Forest.
The Winter Jacket lies near a dead body, and players can add it to their inventory by pressing the “E” input (when on PC).
As hinted at previously, the Winter Jacket has max warmth stats, making it the perfect piece of gear for cold areas and in winter. Players looking to prevent the frostbite condition should put the item on whenever that status ailment could affect them during their playthrough. Alternatively, players could give the Winter Jacket to a companion like Kelvin should the character still be alive or even to Virginia if recruited later. An important stepping stone on the path to survive and beat Sons of the Forest, the Winter Jacket provides its passive effect constantly once players get it.
