How to get Pistol in Sons of the Forest
To get the Pistol in Sons of the Forest game, you must first travel to the location marked in purple. First take out your GPS Locator, and you will find an area with a purple marker. The marked location will be on the far left of your GPS. Remember that other Purple markers are on the map, but the one with the pistol will not be on the land. Instead, it will be on the water, and you will have cover a certain distance from the helicopter crash point to reach there. Here is the exact location:
It would be best if you started heading towards the location before the exact location popped up on your GPS. Always take enough healing items with you because you will need them. The Pistol will be inside an orange inflatable boat, and the sharks will guard it. So approach it with caution.
Since sharks will guard the pistol in the water, ensure you have enough stamina to swim fast. Thankfully the sharks wont attack you right away, and even if it does it will take away a smaller chunk of your health. But we advise you not to stop swimming until you reach the boat’s ladder. Press the E button to climb the ladder and get to the boat.
As soon as you are inside the boat, look down, and you will get to find the pistol. Please pick it up by pressing the E button on your keyboard. While on the boat, heal yourself if you are hurt before diving back into the water, as the sharks might attack you if they see you. Remember that you wont be able to use the pistol right away, and you need to get the ammo for it.
How to get Pistol Ammo in SOTF
To look for Pistol Ammo, you must return to the island and start exploring. The ammo is not craftable, and your only option is to find it inside the caves while looting and exploring the marked locations f the map. The bullets can also be found inside the boxes near the landmarks. If you think the Pistol is not your thing, give it to your companion Virginia, who doesn’t require any ammo to fire bullets.
