In Smalland: Survive the Wilds, a survival game similar to Grounded, you'll always be on the look out for new materials. As you get to crafting and establishing your base, you'll start to notice that certain components to build better tools and weapons can't be found nearby your starting point. Unfortunately, the game doesn't always give you much guidance on where to find them.
Take Flint, for example. It is critical for building better tools and gathering more unique materials in the early game, but can't be found anywhere nearby the Burrow you start in. Don't worry, you can still get it without too much difficulty. You just have to know where to find it.
Where to find Flint in Smalland: Survive the Wilds
