The Shipping Containers is a unique location in The Forest.


It used to be found on the beach along with two other containers, various packages, and some scattered items. There was a cassette tape, which can be played using the cassette player, stuck in the eye socket of the animal skull decoration on the wall. There were also several medicines and a few packages which can be smashed open to get circuit boards inside the crate.

It is unknown who created and occupied the den. It is most likely a cannibal, going by the style of decoration. However, there is a chance that it was a survivor, because the cassette tape is not an item that the cannibals seem to take any interest in, and the den is very well-organized aesthetically compared to normal cannibal style.

It is unknown why the developers removed it from the game. Perhaps it did not fit the theme of the developing story, or perhaps it was buggy, but either way, it has been removed and is no longer in the game.

It was replaced by numerous crates with circuits boards, coins, booze and is considered as main cannibal camp.
