Sons of the Forest: Where to located a pistol

At the beginning of the game, you’re told to find “Team B” and are given three objective markers on the map. Each one of these objective markers will give you something useful for your journey in Sons of the Forest. One gives you a flashlight, another gives you the shotgun, and the third and final one gives you the pistol. You can do these in any order you desire, although getting the shotgun might take a bit longer due to multiple steps required. The pistol in Sons of the Forest, however, is extremely easy to obtain.

As for which one of the three markers the pistol is located at, it’s the one in the ocean. Once you arrive at the shoreline where you seemingly have nowhere else to go to find this beacon, you should be able to spot an orange life raft out at sea. Once you swim out to this life raft, you can climb in it by swimming around to one of the sides and holding the interact button. Within the life raft, you should find a few goodies, but none of them are as important as the pistol lying within.
