Sons of the Forest item codes: What are they and how to use them

Item codes

Item codes are specific codes assigned for the different items you find or craft during the came. Using these codes by accessing the game’s internal file directory will grant you free items in your inventory without much effort. Although this method is unethical and not user-friendly, it is good if you want to save some grinding time in.

You will have to edit the game’s saved files thus you will have to be careful with the changes you make. As mentioned earlier, this method is unethical and not user-friendly. Back up your files to be safe from any mishaps.

As mentioned earlier, you will have to edit the saved files of Sons of the Forest. Be sure to back up all the files before starting the process.

To locate your saved files:

  1. Go to: C:\User\[UserName]\AppData\LocalLow\Endnight\SonsOfTheForest\Saves
  2. You will find a folder with 17 digits in there. Open it.
  3. Open either SinglePlayer or MultiPlayer to access save files for that mode.
  4. A list of folders for each saved file will appear. Try to find your preferred saved file by sorting by date and time.
  5. Make a backup of your saved file to avoid any mishaps.
  6. Find the one saved file you want to edit for accessing your inventory.

If you want to add items to your inventory, open the folder of the save you want to edit, look for the file name PlayerInventorySaveData and open it using Notepad. You will see a whole program with codes and strings on your screen. The repeating codes and strings are denoting your current inventory in the Sons of the Forest save file.

The format of the codes are:


Your main focus right now should be the emboldened X‘s. The XXX is where you enter the item code, as codes are all 3-digit numbers. The single is where you must enter the quantity you want your specific item in. You should never go beyond your inventory capacity for quantity.

Paste the above string into the notepad file, placing it after the comma of an existing item string. Save the notepad file and close it. If you have followed everything correctly up until now, your items should be in your inventory.
