Sons of the Forest has several weapon attachments that can give your firearms that extra punch or utility effect. One of these is the Pistol or Shotgun Flashlight, which should be quite useful since you’d be able to see in the dark with your weapon drawn. Here’s our guide to help you get the Pistol and Shotgun Flashlight in Sons of the Forest.

How to get the Shotgun and Pistol Flashlight Attachment in Sons of the Forest
To get the Pistol and Shotgun Flashlight attachment in Sons of the Forest, you’ll need to visit a rather familiar spot (as seen in the image below). Let’s say that your helicopter crashed in the mountains, or just use the mountains as a reference point. There should be a cave that’s further downriver. In front of that are three impaled corpses, one of which has the Slingshot.
Now, the cavern itself can be entered by destroying the wooden barricades with a weapon. However, you can’t access the tunnel system until you obtain two important tools:
- Rope Gun – Lets you use Ziplines.
- Rebreather – Allows you to dive, swim, and see underwater.
Once you have those, use the Zipline to cross the gap, and dive down the body of water (the Rebreather will keep you alive, but you need to combine it with air tanks in case you run out of oxygen).
As you emerge, you’ll see a path that’s crawling with mutants. Be careful here since they can quickly overwhelm you. Eventually, your character will automatically fall down a crevice, and you’ll end up in a large chamber with several lights. This is where you can get the Sons of the Forest Flashlight attachment for the Pistol or Shotgun. It’s right next to one of the corpses near a utility lamp. Again, numerous hostile monsters can be found in this area, so watch out.
Once you have the Sons of the Forest Flashlight Attachment, you’ll still need to acquire either a Pistol Rail or Shotgun Rail. Only then will you be able to add this mod to that particular weapon.
Related: Make it all the way to the end of this dark cavern and you’ll be able to pick up the Shovel. It’s one of the most important tools in the entire game.
Sons of the Forest is available via Steam.
