Locating the keycard within the maintenance hatch

Once you have the shovel, you should go to the area on the map seen above, then start digging and looking for a maintenance hatch in the ground. After unearthing the maintenance hatch, go down into that area. When you’ve descended the ladder into the dark below, continue down the corridor.

After continuing down the corridor, you’ll be greeted with the option of going straight or turning right. Continuing straight will lead to a dead end with some goodies, but if you turn to the room on your right you should find a room with a 3D printer, and the keycard you’re looking for. Don’t forget to also look around this room, because there’s some goodies for you to grab here as well.

The Maintenance Keycard is used to access other locations in Sons of the Forest and is required to get certain items, like the crossbow.
