Basic Controls

Game: Sons of the Forest

Below, you’ll find the Sons of the Forest controls for Keyboard and Mouse and both PlayStation and Xbox controllers.

Note that all of the controls are remappable: go into the Controls tab of the Settings menu, then scroll down to Button Assignments. There, you can select the action you want to modify, either by left-clicking or by highlighting it and pressing playstation x button/button xbox a v2. The button assignment will then read “Press any key…” and count down from 5 — at this point, press the desired button you want to assign to the selection action to reassign it.

If you make a mistake while remapping and want to reset everything (rather than figuring out what you did wrong) you can press the “Reset” button, found at the top of the Button Assignments.
