Sons Of The Forest PC Keyboard Controls Guide

A Helicopter in Sons Of The Forest

When The Forest came out in 2014, it did a great job of immersing players in an island survival situation, and making the soil their pants with the terrifying mutated monsters that live in the caves around that island. I didnโ€™t personally soil my pants, but I know people who did.


After almost a decade of nightmares a sequel to The Forest is nearly here and ready to show you more things to keep you up at night. In Sons of the Forest, you and your bravest friends (not me) will explore a new island, face new dangers, and use vastly improved crafting and survival mechanics to make it through each night, hopefully unharmed. Although, those mutant cave dwellers do like to skulk around in the darkโ€ฆ Iโ€™m sleeping with the lights on tonight.


Sons of the Forest is available in Early Access right now, which means youโ€™re in for some sleepless nights. And, with all of the new mechanics and systems, that means only some of your knowledge from the previous game will carry over. But put your control-based worries to rest, because weโ€™re here with another control guide for you. Make use of this Sons of the Forest keyboard controls guide to keep your knowledge of the gameโ€™s controls sharp. Things can change during Early Access and they most likely will but at least you have this handy reference guide ready to go for when you really need it!
