How to Build Suspension Bridges in Sons of the Forest

Why did the cannibal cross the bridge?

The survivalist journey of Sons of the Forest can sometimes be terrifying, especially with the violent attacks of the bloodthirsty cannibals. Fortunately, players can use their crafting skills to their advantage and create numerous builds, like a shelter or weapon, to fend off the vicious human eaters. In this guide, we’ll show you how to make a suspension bridge in Sons of the Forest to simplify traveling.

How to Craft Rope Bridge in Sons of the Forest

The suspension bridge, also known as the Rope Bridge, requires a substantial amount of logs and two ropes in order to build it successfully. For wood, you can use your axe to cut down trees or send out Kelvin to collect materials for you. As for the rope, players must search around for it in various areas, but this particular recipe only mandates a couple of them.

While crafting the project, you must be aware of your surroundings due to the murderous antics of wild cannibals. Therefore, players can equip armor or get weapons to prepare for surprise attacks.

Now that we’ve covered some of the basic requirements for the build, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create the suspension bridge:

  1. Stack seven logs on top of each other.
