Batteries are material items that were added in update v0.01 to The Forest.

Gameplay[]

Batteries are used to recharge the flashlight and flashlight upgraded weapons. They currently have no other use in the game.

Locations[]

They can be found in the cave or inside of suitcases. When you collect flashlights, you will get a set of batteries with it. It is difficult to locate batteries outside of caves apart from opening suitcases.

Crafting[]

Keep in mind, when using weapons with the flashlight upgrade, the flashlight will run non-stop and cannot be switched off. This can consume a lot of batteries.

Trivia[]

  • The fictional brand name of these batteries are "batterytech" with the slogan "HYPER CHARGE TECHNOLOGY SYSTEM", and the item models a pack of 4 AA batteries, but the inventory icon appears to be that of a C battery, which is typically used in heavy duty flashlights.
  • Inspiration for the name and the appearance taken from 'real world' battery brand "Powertech".

Notes[]

  • Once you have stacked 10,000 batteries you will still be able to pick the item up however the stack number will not increase in your inventory.
  • Batteries will power a Flashlight for a duration of 10 minutes
