And it does so not only in case of the game and its atmosphere that includes dark tunnels, that will traumatize people with claustrophobia, monsters that will give you nightmares, hordes of hungry cannibals, sharks that will dig out that buried fear from the days of Subnautica and a lot more, but also with its quests. That being said, nothing like having a decoy to distract cannibals and monsters, right? That is where a scarecrow comes in.
You can create a wide variety of items in Sons of the Forest. Some of them, such as houses and traps, are essential to your survival, whereas others serve more as ornamental items. One of these is the Scarecrow, which has additional uses in addition to giving your stronghold a scary appearance. We’ll go over making a scarecrow in Sons of the Forest down below.
How to Make a Scarecrow in Sons of the Forest
Thankfully, the Scarecrow can be constructed quickly and simply using only a few materials, unlike other constructions that call for cutting down numerous trees or locating difficult-to-find materials. It can be constructed with just 14 sticks and 4 sections of duct tape. The woodland is covered with sticks that are lying on the ground. You can cut down tiny trees if you can’t locate them. You’ll have enough sticks from these to assemble the scarecrow. The Duct Tape is a normal loot item that can be discovered all over the world, but you should try searching inside Crates. Additionally, it is accessible near the accident scene where you start the game.
When you have the necessary supplies in your possession, swap the setting and open your crafting book. Locate the Scarecrow by navigating Utilities with the book in your left hand. Place it there after that, and then approach it. By hitting the “E” key, you can begin sticking the sticks and duct tape to it.
Because it can serve as a ruse, the scarecrow is something that can keep you secure. The cannibals will become disoriented and start attacking the Scarecrow if there is one close. This is your opportunity to flee, get well, or fight the cannibals.
