Where to get the Shotgun in Sons of the Forest

You can use the middle mouse click or options on controller to zoom in on your tracker for a more accurate picture of where you're supposed to go. The grave can be tricky to spot since it's hidden in the shrubbery. It will have a red piece of cloth on it. The GPS tracker will beep with increasing frequency the closer you approach it. Dig up the grave using your shovel to find a dead body inside with the Shotgun.

Be careful, though, because a large cannibal camp is nearby, so make sure you have a Pistol or an amazing melee weapon like the Katana or Chainsaw to help you deal with them.
