Coming in a standard, cave, propeller, and masked form, cannibals are the central enemy you will find in Sons of the Forest

As the game has only just launched, we have a list of enemies confirmed to be in the game via trailers or good guesses based on what we know about the series. These are just the ones we imagine will make a comeback from the previous game. We'll update when we know more.

Do Sons of the Forest enemies drop loot?

All enemies in Sons of the Forest will not drop loot. This being said, some of them will drop whatever they are carrying. In The Forest, Cannibals could drop their own arm, which you could use to attack enemies. They can also drop clubs, teeth, and more, which were generally used in crafting recipes.

If you see an enemy holding something you want, attack them to grab it for yourself. This being said, Sons of the Forest is a different kind of survival game. Your best bet is almost never to kill the enemies. You should aim to hit those in your way and build up your defences until the rest go away.

While you're here, you may be looking to give The Forest a go. If so, here's The Forest chainsaw location, The Forest rebreather location, how to make arrows in The Forest, and how to make ropes in The Forest. There is truly so much to learn if you have the time.
