Sons of the Forest - Artifact Pieces

Sons of the Forest offers various unexplained items from its initial release and the recent patches that came out later. Now, that the full release of the game is out with the v1.0, all the mysterious pieces of an artifact can finally be acquired. Finding the pieces of Artifact is crucial for getting the new Artifact Ending to Sons of the Forest which was added with the latest patch.

In this guide, we’ll tell you where to find all Pieces of the Artifact in Sons of the Forest.

Where to Find All Pieces of Artifact in Sons of the Forest

The Artifact is divided among six different pieces and a base making a total of seven pieces scattered around the island’s various caves. To be precise about the caves, venturing into the following caves will let you find a piece of the Artifact.

The Golden Armor Cave holds two pieces of the Artifact whereas, the rest of the caves hold one piece each. However, for the seventh and final piece of artifact, players will have to get the Artifact Ending to get left behind on the island from where they will be able to find the final one.

1st Artifact Piece (Rebreather Cave)

The first Artifact piece can be found at the end of the Rebreather Cave. It is located on the Northwest side of the map, not far from the Helicopter crash at the start of the game.

Upon reaching the cave, break the wooden planks at the entrance of the cave and squeeze into the cave. Continue ahead in the cave and go through the path on the right side. Kill the mutants along the path and keep pushing ahead until you come across the first split path. Stick to the path on the right side and make sure to eliminate any mutants along the way.

Eventually, you will come to another split path and this time, you need to pursue the left path with a hanging cross. As you go ahead, there will be a boarded passage on the left side. Break the wooden planks to get across and you will find a rope descending into more depth. Interact with the rope to descend and go along the path. Take a left from the next fork and crouch down to get past the hanging crosses.

As you get past the crosses, there will be a Crosslight blueprint that you can grab. Continue ahead to find another boarded passage. Break the wooden barricade and continue ahead and there will be a small passage leading to the left. Turn left and you will step into the Artifact’s piece room where you will get to find the first Artifact Piece.

2nd Artifact Piece (Rope Gun Cave)

The second piece of the Artifact is located inside the Rope Gun Cave. It is located on the western side of the map near the river spawn point.

Once at the cave, head inside by breaking the wooden planks and you will reach a slope leading to an open area filled with several mutants. Kill the mutants and go to the right side of the open area to find a rope descending into the depths. Interact with the rope to go down and then continue on the right side to come across a barricaded path. Break the wooden barricades to go ahead and you will reach a room with another rope.

Descend with the rope and you will see an opening in the water. Here, you can use the Rebreather to traverse ahead but it is also possible without the Rebreather. Jump into the water and keep going forward to come out of the other end. As you come out of the water, you will see another barricaded path. Break the planks and you will reach the room with the artifact.

Simply follow along the path to reach the piece of the artifact and then interact with it to pick it up.

3rd Artifact Piece (Grind Trap Cave)

The third piece of the Artifact is located inside the Grind Trap Cave. It is located on the northeast side of the island near the shore. However, the entrance to the cave is from within a bunker which will require you to break the wooden barricades to get into the cave.

As you descend to the cave, keep going along the path to come across another barricaded path. Break the wooden planks and you will see a rope descending ahead. Interact with the rope to go down and you will be dropped into the water. Get out of the water and continue ahead on the path to eventually come across another barricaded path.

Break the wooden planks and continue on a slope path to go down. You will reach another barricaded path so break the planks and you will find another rope in the room. Interact with the rope to go down to see a light surrounded by a few skeletons in the middle. Here, you will find the third piece of the artifact and if you go to the left side from where you descended from the rope, you will find the Grind Trap Blueprint behind the waterfall.

4th Artifact Piece (Pickaxe Cave)

The fourth piece of the Artifact is located inside the Pickaxe Cave. It is located on the northeast side of the island, not far from the Grind Trap Cave and you will easily be able to come here after getting the third Artifact piece.

Upon reaching the cave entrance, interact with the rope to descend into the cave. Follow the path ahead to find water streams. Follow the water to the right side and you eventually come across an open path inside the water. Here, you need to use the Rebreather to swim across the underwater passage.

The underwater passage is straightforward so, it shouldn’t be a problem to get across. Once you have resurfaced, turn to the left side and follow the path to find a barricaded path. Break the wooden planks and enter the room to find a blueprint for Item Plating and then a rope descending further in the cave.

Interact with the rope to descend and continue on the path to come across a path filled with crosses. Keep following the path to come across another rope. Descend further using the rope and continue ahead to find the piece of the Artifact.

5th Piece of Artifact (Lakeside Entrance for Golden Armor Cave)

For the 5th and the 6th pieces of the Artifact, you need to head into the Golden Armor Cave. It is located on the eastern side of the map. However, for the first one, enter from the Lakeside which is on the other side of the mountain.

Upon entering the cave, you will come across a skeleton sitting on a Sofa. If you look to the left of the skeleton, you will find an underwater passage for which you must use the Rebreather to get across. Equip the Rebreather and get into the water to swim across to the other side. As you resurface yourself, follow ahead to find glowing Solafite on the wall.

Continue ahead to see a split path from where you need to go left. Make sure to clear out the mutants along the way and you will eventually reach a barricaded path. Break the wooden planks to go ahead and you will come across the Golden Passage. Push ahead through the golden passage and as soon as you come out of it, turn left and continue ahead to find a rock leading up.

Jump on the rock and follow the path to eventually come across the piece of the Artifact.

6th Piece/Base of Artifact (Golden Armor Cave)

Now, for the second piece of Artifact in the Golden Armor Cave, you need to come to the main entrance.

Break the wooden planks to enter the cave and continue along the right side to go through a small opening. As you go through the opening, stick to the right side and you will eventually come across a Solafite area. Go inside the area and there will be an underwater passage right after the area. Equip the Rebreather and get into the water to swim across to the other side.

Continue straight as you come out of the water and then jump on the rocks to go ahead. Now, turn left and continue ahead to jump into the water to swim briefly ahead. You will reach a room with more Solafite and a rope that will take you up. Interact with the rope to go up and reach the Golden Passage. As you go along the golden passage, you will face a new mutant named ‘Legsy’.

After dealing with the mutant, continue ahead and stick to the right side to eventually get to a barricaded path. As you break the wooden planks, you will slide down the slope. Get out of the water and continue ahead by following the glowing light of Solafite. Turn left from here and keep following along the path to come across another barricaded path. Break the wooden planks and take the rope down to traverse through another underwater passage.

As you resurface yourself, go ahead toward the Solafite and look to the right to find a small opening. Go through it and follow along the path to enter an area with lightning and a spaceship. Climb up the spaceship from the front side and make your way to the back of the ship to find an entrance. Break the wooden planks and enter the ship to make your way to the cockpit.

Here, you will find the base of the Artifact along with the Golden Armor. Make sure to pick up both of the items.

7th Piece of Artifact (Post-Game)

For the final piece of the Artifact, you need to pursue the ending of the game with the base of the artifact and the five pieces. As you go through the Hell Cave and fight the final boss on the beach, you need to go back and pick up the Artifact instead of getting on the helicopter. Once you have been left behind on the island, you need to go to the mysterious Light in the sky.

Follow the light to reach the entrance to a new cave. Interact with the rope to descend into the cave and then start following the path to reach the source of the light which will be the final piece of the Artifact.

With all the artifact pieces collected along with the base, you will be able to craft the Artifact by combining the Artifact’s base with all six pieces. The Artifact is used for multiple purposes and it requires Solafite as ammo so, make sure to get Solafite in your post-game adventures to use the Artifact frequently.
