Raccoons are passive animals that were added in update v0.07 to The Forest.

Gameplay[]

Raccoons are some of the rarest animals in the game. When killed and skinned, they drop 2 meat, 1 raccoon skin and 1 raccoon head. Unlike most small animals in The Forest, raccoons can only be killed with two hits from any weapon. Raccoons are well sought after v1.0 implemented the warmsuit, this is the only current use for raccoon skin in the game:

Locations[]

  • Raccoons can be found most often by the lake in the open grasslands above the Fertile Lands IconTheForestMap.png.
  • Small pond near the northernmost point of the river IconTheForestMap.png.
  • They can also be found in the middle of the northern region of the map (near the Cockpit). Hunting them in this region at night is easy, as the snow reflects the moonlight and contrasts against the animal's dark fur, making them easier to spot.

Trivia[]

  • A glitch was discovered in 1.06 that attacking a dead raccoon with any weapon will cause up to 3 Sodas or Snacks to fly out of the body. It is yet to be patched, and the cause of this glitch is unknown. It currently stands as a reliable food and water farm. This may be an intended feature (added in v0.16), as raccoons are known for digging through trash and rubble to find food, and its possible they scavenged them from the campsites found in-game)

Known Bugs[]

  • From v0.08b raccoons could climb trees but this is no longer working in current version. Climbing animation is still present but raccoons remain on the ground level.
  • It is noted that they are nocturnal only in patch notes for v0.31, however they can be spotted during the day.
