TOP 6 BASE LOCATIONS! The Forest

Published by Darron Toy on



welcome back everybody broadband here today we're going to be going over what are my personal top six favorite locations to build in the forest now I would like to mention that these locations are in no particular order I have just put them together I don't rate them like number ones the best number Five's the worst I've just put them together so you can make your own opinion so kicking it off with location one this will be on the beach in the bottom right hand corner of the map now an advantage to building here is you've got a lot of open space you've got the entire beach to yourself you won't really have to worry about many cannibals coming after you here you've got a load of trees right outside your door you can just chop them facing the beach and they will land on the beach most likely not to mention this is a huge area like you can build like a small town here and I also believe this is a spawn location for turtles so you can get those precious shells for water collectors moving on to location – this is probably one of the most common places to build but I'm including it nonetheless so it's right down in the bottom left-hand side of the map where you've got this huge open stretch of land going out towards this tree now an advantage to building here is you've got this rock wall like is a natural wall around your base so it's really hard for cannibals to get up to you so all you have to do is really block off the front main entrance to your base and then you're good now a contr building here is definitely getting logs there now it may not look that far and it's honestly not if there's two of you then it's going to be easy it's just as soon as you start chopping down those front trees you can have to go further and further and further back into the forest and it's just going to get quite time-consuming now another important note to mention is you also got the yacht really close by so in that really desperate moment when you're having an attack you can run over and swim over to the yacht save and then you're all good because this is a save point on the yacht moving on to location three we have a very popular area here this isn't a snow biome and it's the largest lake you can find in the snow biome this location is quite challenging at first you'll have to constantly battle the cold which is not too difficult at beginning just build it like a small base outside the lake and then move your way in building a boat then a platform so and so forth now the cannibals aren't that bad up here they will progress further and further in the game but at the beginning you won't be bothered that much but the more noise you do make it can get quite chaotic up here moving on to the fourth location this is probably one of the largest areas you're going to get to build in the forest it's a huge open stretch of land in the mainland near the North now I personally consider this a great location because you've got lots of trees very nearby you've got a constant food supply of wild boars running around near you and you've also got that extra cliff edge which will act as a defensive wall for you now onto the second-to-last location we have the largest island in the game now I was quite hesitant to include this because getting logs here is going to be a ball lake you'll have to set up a temporary camp on the mainland and then build the bridge across and then use log sleds but as soon as you got that bridge set up and you've got your defenses set up you're not going to be bothered by cannibals once you're on that main island which is one of the reasons I've included it in this list you'll also have a fairly large area to build with so you've got that extra freedom moving on to the final location we have the two rocks in the lake this can be found in the bottom middle section of the map now this is where I'm currently building in my let's play if you want to see this spot in action click the card in the top right of the screen now now advanced to this straightaway you can see is we're building in a lake so that means that the cannibals are going to have a hard time getting to us now one con two building here is you are building very close to a village now don't worry the cannibals aren't really that active around this village they only really start to increase their attacks when you start putting explosives down alright everyone thank you for watching my first top 5 video if you enjoyed the video I found the video helpful remember to hit that like button and if you enjoyed this content you'll love my later videos so be sure to subscribe thank you for watching everyone I've been Robin and I'll see you in the next episode Oh

You don't need to build a bridge just use the ziplines to transport logs and a raft with storage for everything else

g chesters · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Lol me and my friend are pure strategists our base is in the middle of the biggest cannibal village lmao

Szuwiusz · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I dont recommend number 4 unless You are crazy. If You start build there it will be like open war with cannibals. I have tried there with 3 other friends. We suffer 3 attacks each day. That was the most insane fight in my gametime. The best spot for me is the hill right to the river mouth. It very rarely encountered by cannibals. You have decent amount of threes, You have water poles and fishes, animals around. The best for me.

AbleAnderson · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

How do you get these aerial shots of the map?

Blue Hunter · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

0:32 first time playing i spawned right there by that beach. With out even knowing, I started building there thinking it would be safer, and it was! Very helpful, you can build walls or traps to block or deter cannibals from coming down, and they probably wont anyway. Lots of room, turtles spawn regularly, so do seagulls which can give you feathers. Also right by the main cannibal village for you to raid a TON of cloth and goodies (or if you are unlucky like me and die, its just a short hike back home) Only cons I have are you need to go back up for supplies like logs, but you can zip-line them down (make a log catcher!!! I lost a few that rolled off into the ocean) and if you really want to make sure the cannibals don’t come to say hi, dont build stairs, use the natural rock “steps” there, but they can be a pain to get use to using… also the view is sort of dull, just a lot if water and bare land.

Ilia Koupatsiaris · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

My friends and I are on day 30 and we built on that island only problem is you attacked heaps like soon as you go up the cliff to cut couple trees like 3 mutants come out and then you gotta bail down your zip line when you think they’re gone or wait till the next day. Still fun and enjoyable spot cause you get to play around with traps and all sorts but very slow going in the later days.

JefBry King · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

In the snow at the left top of the snow you need to follow the beatch ent bult stairs up by the snow waterfall

JefBry King · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

My base is in A mountan glitch

Spectralian · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Jo bro the last location is my base right now and it’s stunning I’m streaming it so if u want to check out how this location works out watch the streams 😎

Journey awaits · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I thought 2 was a good idea, but the enemies really like going there and I had 10 attacking my shitty shed after day 4

ShadowDalek · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Question, I’m playing this on PS4, is there anyway to place multiple platforms at once? Instead of one at a time?

Dean Nutz · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Just starting out an I built in fertile lands now starting on that island at 3:10
You can use zip lines for logs too.
My friend set me up wish there was a host log dupe he's not in my time zone lol

LARGEFARVA · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

#1 base location is houseboat

GravesThaClown · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Sweet. This is my first play through of the forest and I had no idea the spot I picked was actually one of the best places (the first one). Feels good man. Also highly recommend the VR version of the forest. Looks amazing maxed out with highest supersampling in oculus tray tool.

low flying pigeon · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I have to admit im loving this game, but big builds are soooo daunting i started 3 huge projects and had to abort due to them being on a patrol route for the cannibals 🤔 also how can i destroy old save points 👍🏼

Ryan Blair · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

For the island you can use zipline to get the logs across

Pequeño Perezoso · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I don’t like places “safe from cannibals”. They’re boring. Build in the river.

Kacper Cylka · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

The second last one, easy to get logs super easy you have to make a zipline from the higher place at the forest side that will go just inside your base

AstronomicFilth · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I spawned right at location one

S3mpx YT · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

go on farket's channel , he investigated and studied canibals behaviour and also their paths. the second location your showing is actually on a path. The biggest island one is near a path but they only see you in the upper part of the mainland. They wont come at the little beach next to the island. Turtles will spawn there too. sticks are in the upper part mostly and a big village is also not far away if you want to raid. Open fields are like 40 seconds away if you want to hunt rabbits and lizards

Danilouco · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

3:40 best ever

RawMaterialENT · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Geese lake any good?

RebsandPatsFan YT · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Number 2 is my favorite I have it as my base

banjobash · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Guys trust me. Head north of the main cannibal village until u find a large cliff and build on top of it. I encounter like one Armsy every blue moon. Not in a patrol route and bountiful food and water.

Matt garey-hendricks · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I am currently building my base to the right of that lake and almost every time I wake up from another in game day, I have 6 grey cannibals attacking my base along with 1 to 2 armsies and a virginia

Sir Turd · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

For the one second to last, if you create a zip line you can drop logs directly onto the island

NOOObadapples · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

You can put log holders on boats to help with building in the water.

Alan Volkmer · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I made my first huge base on number 1 location… the best! And the big Canibal´s Camp is near there with lot of clothes, dinamites, sodas and a cave.

林information · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I live on the 2nd and 3rd. Hahaha
Actually, I got all huge white trees.

Prasanth Kumar Uyyala · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Bro what is it area in sq km

Iulian Lupastean · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

The fertile lands is the best area to build your base because there is a lot of food, plants and i didn't meet the canibals before the 44 day

Peter Dathisen · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I ate half a reindeer heart while watching this

DankGamer _aob · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

there is a huge tree by the yacht what and a cave or something what's that location called?

Blackout 5670 · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

My base is a tree house at the middle of a field surrounded by a wall, close to a cannibal camp, and next to a cave

KalakCZ · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Make "TOP X WORST BASE LOCATIONS!" , I want to see if my base location will be there xD

Scorpion 1099254 · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

3:33 I built my Base on the main Island Close to the small island. There is ins 1 way the enemys can come from.

Skruff · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

locations without tree on top of them suck.

Koton · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I did base by the half a island by the boat (up where is the 1 tree) and ultra big storage in wood (i choped almost 6 miles into wood)

Garrett Tullier · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Dont rate them with number 1 is the first or number 5 is the last…. theres 6 of them XD

Monster Bash · July 30, 2019 at 5:54 pm

I usually build on the mainland right where that big island is. There's that nook under the cliff just south of the beach. Sometimes I build a back-up camp on the island.
