Sons of the Forest: How to Get the Zipline Rope Gun?

The Sons of the Forest zipline Rope Gun, otherwise known as the rope gun, is an important key item that is easy to miss. Not only will the zipline gun let you traverse the rocky areas and cliffs of the map much more easily, but you’ll need it to access other items as well like the shovel. The location of this rope gun is at the end of a cave and will require just a few weapons to get through it.

Where is the Cave location?

The location of the cave is to the west of the snowy mountains. There is a path that carves through the middle of the lake, with the road going down a bit before you hit an entrance that’s blocked by some wood planks. Using an axe on the planks is easy enough. We’ve seen this entrance may or may not be covered in snow, so your playthrough may be differ. 


Where is the Zipline Rope Gun in the Cave?

The cave system is long and dark, so you’ll likely want to pull out your flashlight. But there shouldn’t be too many threats here, though enemies are a bit random. The only main threat is a blob-like monster that blocks a path, but there is a corpse nearby with several time bombs that will make quick work of this enemy. After that, it’s clear sailing until you find the zipline gun on a rock.

How to Find more Zipline Ropes?

If you want to create multiple zipline routes you’ll need more ziplines. To get ziplines you need to do one of two things.

  • Find them — they’re scattered around the island in equipment crates. 
  • Make them — you’ll need to combine a piece of rope and a grapple hook. Grapple hooks can be made using the 3D printer. Combine the two to make a zipline. If you don’t know where a 3D printer is, check this guide.

To use the gun, you need to fire it into a surface, then walk to wherever you want the zipline to finish and fire into another surface. You can then zipline back and forth by walking up to the zipline. Yes, it works both ways because the zipline gun is powered (it’ll never need recharging).


You can also remove existing ziplines by going to one end and holding down E. So far, it seems as if ziplines let you clip through smaller trees, without injury. But that could change with a later update so we’d recommend you try to get a clear zipline run.

Where Should You Put Your Ziplines? 

We’d recommend you use at least one to set up an escape route from your base. The cannibals and mutants are persistent but they can’t move faster than a zipline. If you’re feeling particularly creative, set up two bases, one at the top of a hill, one down by the beach, and zip between the two when you need to or when things get too heated. 

And on the topic of where to find a zipline gun in Sons of the Forest, that’s all you need to know.
