Suitcases can be found throughout The Forest, often near the plane crash at the beginning of the game and along the various beaches. They are usually locked and can be opened by breaking the lock with a melee weapon. Suitcases can usually be found in various colors, but the color doesn't depict the loot in them. As of v0.05 they exist in the colors red, blue, lime green, dark green pink, yellow and yellow-lime. There are also (as of v0.10) purple plaid, black, and teal as well as 2 different model types.
