The cache photos are story items that were added in update v0.49 to The Forest.


The cache photosare a set of 8 faded polaroids revealing the locations of the flintlock pistol parts and their caches scattered across the peninsula. Each is labeled "Dig Location #<1-9>" and marked with a black "X" indicating the cache.

They can be equipped by selecting them in the inventory, where they are named "Old Photo <1-8> of 8". It is unknown why the handwriting on several of the photos does not match these numbers.
