How to Build a Water Collector in Sons of the Forest

The Forest veterans know that one of the basic first things you need to do is to secure a fresh, drinkable water source, lest your character dies of dehydration. Naturally, that will also be the first thing you will try to do in the sequel. However, in the first game, this was achieved via the Water Collector. That building collected clean drinking rainwater and was made of sticks and a turtle shell. However, it seems that Sons of the Forest currently doesn’t have such an object. Nonetheless, it also seems that the game penalizes you less for drinking water directly from a river or any other body of water. Simply approach any river on the map, and press E to drink water.

However, there is a way to collect and carry water with you. Although, this is achieved not via the old turtle shell Water Collector. Instead, to carry water around with you, you will need a good old water flask. The water flask is made via a 3D printer. These 3D printers are a new feature in Sons of the Forest, which you can use to make various essential tools and assecories.

These 3D printers can be found inside many manmade facilities in many of the forest’s caves and bunkers. The one we found was in the same bunker as the Maintenance Keycard. Simply approach a 3D Printer, press R until you see a Flask on the screen, and then hit “E” to print it. Once it’s done, press “E” again to add it to your inventory. With that said, our “Water Collector Sons of the Forest” guide is completed.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
