The Forest Wiki

The Forest received its first set of Steam achievements in update v0.64 that included 45, six of which are hidden that do not display information on how they are obtained. Some achievements can only be earned in multiplayer mode. The regular achievements can be earned in multiplayer mode as well, but are reportedly bugged.

Most achievements do not require their own dedicated page due to their simplicity. Though some have pages as there is helpful information involved to obtaining the achievement.

Commercial Fisherman Commercial Fisherman.jpg Kill 6 or more fish with a stick of dynamite The small ponds in the game only contain 3-4 fish at a time. To complete this achievement, you have to find fish spawns either in the large rivers (Geese Lake) or on the coastline. When you find a big enough group of fish, light a stick of dynamite and toss it near the water, as close to the group as possible. Careful, however, to not chuck it into the water, as it will extinguish the dynamite. Alternatively, you can use bombs, as you can throw them into water.
Serial Killer Serial Killer.jpg Kill 100 cannibals While most people will naturally complete this achievement by playing a longer single player or multiplayer game, the quickest way to complete it is by setting up some traps in a high traffic area and lighting a bonfire to attract large groups of cannibals.

Monster Monster.jpg Kill a bunny Currently, this achievement can only be successfully done in single player mode. The quickest way to complete this achievement is to start a normal game, once you find a bunny, they can be killed easiest by using a bow, slingshot or throwable rock, but you can also catch them with any kind of spear (you can attack low ground while running without stopping, unlike with other melee weapons) or other methods. Animal Traps can make this easier.
Birdseye Birdseye.jpg Kill bird with arrow As the description states - simply kill any bird with any arrow using either the crafted bow or modern bow in single player mode and you will obtain this achievement. It's easier if the bird is on the ground.
Fisherman Fisherman.jpg Catch fish with a trap Build a animal trap in water where fish are. Allow the trap to catch a fish. Must be the water based trap version.
