Flare gun ammo is craftable ammunition used exclusively for the Flare Gun. It was added in update v0.01 and was made craftable in update v0.21 of The Forest.

Gameplay[]

Flare gun ammo is crafted by combining flares with the flare gun. It does not consume the flare gun in the process. Flare gun ammo is not found in the inventory; to see how much ammo you have, place the cursor over the flare gun and it will indicate a number. This number indicates how much ammo you have. You can hold a maximum of 10 flares though you can hold 10,000 flare gun ammo, so It is recommended to make flare gun ammo when you are at max flare capacity to ensure there is no wastage. As the flare gun re-spawns when you save and exit, collecting it again will add 5 more flare gun ammo

Notes[]

  • When fired from the Flare Gun, a flare will burn for 30 seconds, during which time it will emit light and a plume of coloured smoke.
  • Once you have stacked 10,000 flare gun ammo you will still be able to craft the item however it is hit and miss, quite often requiring all 5 flares to be crafted in order to add 1 more flare gun ammo to your inventory.
