In the survival horror game “The Forest,” the repair hammer is a tool used to repair structures and items in your base. To craft a repair hammer in the game, follow these steps:
1. Gather the Required Materials:
- To craft a repair hammer, you’ll need the following materials:
- 2x sticks
- 1x cloth
- 5x tree sap
2. Collect Sticks:
- Sticks can be easily collected by chopping down small bushes, small trees, or breaking open suitcases found throughout the game world.
3. Obtain Cloth:
- Cloth can be acquired by looting suitcases, finding it in various locations, or collecting it from mutants and enemies you defeat.
4. Collect Tree Sap:
- Tree sap can be collected from tree sap collectors. Craft tree sap collectors by combining 4 sticks, 1 rock, and 1 log.
5. Access the Crafting Menu:
- Open your inventory by pressing the “I” key (default keybind) on your keyboard.
6. Craft the Repair Hammer:
- In your inventory, navigate to the “Utility” section.
- Find the “Repair Tool” option, which is the repair hammer, and click on it to craft it if you have the required materials.
7. Equip the Repair Hammer:
- Once crafted, the repair hammer will appear in your inventory. Click on it to equip it.
8. Use the Repair Hammer:
- With the repair hammer equipped, approach the structure or item you want to repair in your base.
- A prompt will appear when you are close enough to a damaged structure. Press the interaction key (usually “E” by default) to start the repair process.
9. Repair Structures and Items:
- Point the reticle at the damaged part of the structure or item and press the interaction key again to repair it. The repair hammer will consume tree sap as you use it for repairs.
The repair hammer is an essential tool for maintaining and fortifying your base in “The Forest.” Regularly inspect and repair your structures to ensure they remain intact and functional, especially when facing attacks from hostile mutants.
