How to get the Map in The Forest (Easy Guide)

How to get the Map in The Forest (Easy Guide)

If you’re new to The Forest and have been finding it hard to navigate the Peninsula without a compass or a map like most games provide, that’s because you have to find the map and compass in this game.

Head out of The Forest and find the White Mountain. Head in the opposite direction till you find a cliff. Walk left along the edge of the cliff till you find a hut. Follow the hut’s dust path until you stumble upon the village. Find the cave and climb down it. You’ll find the map and the compass.


Fortunately for you, you’ll find the compass next to the game’s map. But finding it without dying multiple times can be pretty hard. But if you’re a straight-up newbie in The Forest, you can still pull it off with no sweat.

Find the White Mountain in The Forest

  • Regardless of where you’ve spawned, you need to ensure you get out of the thick and dense forest into a grassland area. This is to ensure an overall better view of the surrounding regions.
  • Once you’re outside the thicker parts of the forest, you’ll need to locate the big white mountain to use as a reference point. We’re not heading in its direction.

Head to The Edge of The Map

  • Turn around and head exactly in the opposite direction. Avoid any cannibals, and don’t wander elsewhere, or you might get lost.

Find The Hut and Village

  • After a few minutes, you’ll find a small hut. This is another reference point.

  • Walk along the hut’s dusty path until you reach the village. This is the biggest village in the game so far.

  • Towards the end of the village, you’ll find a cave.
