How to Get the Sled in Sons of the Forest: Tired of trudging down enormous snow-covered slopes? You’ll be relieved to find that there is a means to speed up your travels in Sons of the Forest.
Getting across the enormous island of Sons of the Forest takes a long time because players can only go on foot. Yet, certain inventive technologies, such as the Sled, accelerate travel from point A to point B. The forest is made up of cliffs and mountains, and players may suffer fall damage and may even die if they fall from too high. The Sled in the game allows people to glide down surfaces rather than free fall, and it has precise speed control, which can be chaotic yet efficient.
In the game, a Sled can be created using the 3D Printer found buried inside an abandoned bunker. Thus, if you want to get across the island more quickly, here’s all you need to know about how to get and use the Sled in Sons of the Forest.
Get the Sled in Sons of the Forest
To obtain the Sled in Sons of the Forest, players must locate and use a 3D Printer. Only one of the four scattered throughout the island may be accessed without the use of any other tools or items. The 3D Printer in the far west is the finest spot to get the Sled and other printable things.
Players can access the GPS after crash-landing and unlocking the emergency pack, which marks any GPS locators and signals. The 3D Printer is identified by a pulsating green circle near the west shore. It’s located within a cave a little distance uphill from a broken-down vine-covered golf buggy.
The area immediately after the entry appears to be a gloomy, bluish cave, but it swiftly transforms into a tunnel with a room at the end. Inside the room, the 3D Printer is on the desk, together with the printer resin and other supplies.
When you obtain the necessary amount of resin, you must do the following:
- Interact with the laptop 3D printer.
- To access the menu, press the “R” key.
- Locate and choose the “Sled” option.
- To begin 3D printing, press and hold the “E” key.
Unlike other critical things that can be found and picked up, such as the zipline and hang gliders, players will have to create the Sled to add it to their inventory. The Sled will always remain in the inventory once picked up, and players cannot drop it, but it has its own assigned slot and does not compete for space with other items.
How to Use the Sled in Sons of the Forest
The Sled is a specialized tool that may only be used under specified conditions, after which you will have the fastest mode of transportation in the game. You can do the following with it:
- Sliding downhill
- Reduce fall damage
- Reduce collision damage.
- Float over the water.
- Cross streams and rivers
Sled is most used to slide down the mountain as soon as possible. Instead of traveling the path, this can save you a lot of time. Of course, in order to obtain the intended effect of a speedy descent, you must find a more or less unobstructed road downhill. To utilize the sled, you must perform the following:
- Place yourself on top of the hill or mount.
- Have a look at your inventory.
- Click the LMB to select the sled.
- When you’re ready, hit “Jump (spacebar)” + LMB (left mouse button).
If you did everything correctly, you will immediately leap aboard the Sled and proceed down the designated course. If the path isn’t steep enough, the sled will halt and the players will have to walk up. Yet, if your speed is adequate, you may easily glide above obstructions and even move down rivers.
