The Weapon Rack is a weapon storage building that was added in update v0.13 of The Forest.


The weapon rack allows players to store most Weapons outside of their inventory. It's also a good way to share weapons with other players. To place an item on the rack you need to equip it, walk up to the rack and press C. To take a weapon from the rack you press E on whatever weapon you want to take.
