Here you will find the bunker with the golden mask on the map. The location will be displayed as a green dot on your GPS device:

  • Flashlight attachment
  • golf club
  • katana
  • Golden Armor
  • Golden Mask
  • “Email – Safe in Cube”
  • “Email – Classified Scientific Data”

Investigate the ground at this location. You will find places to dig here and you will discover a bunker. Examine the underground complex and in a living area you will find the keycard on the desk. Keep looking around, there’s a lot to loot down here.

What does the Golden Mask bring? Similar to the Red Mask, which you can create in a 3D printer, you hold the equipped mask in front of your face. Cannibals are deterred by this. They think you are one of the bosses and leave you alone.

If you are not already in a fight with the intrusive neighbors, you can use this to prevent aggression towards you.

Unfortunately, the mask cannot do anything against the enemy in your camp: Kelvin was only the hero in Sons of the Forest – but players now think: “Don’t trust him!”
