How to fix Kelvin getting stuck in Sons of the Forest

Revive Kelvin!

In Sons of the Forest, you have two companions along the journey. Kelvin is the only survivor of the helicopter crash beside you and he's the first person you will interact with. Being deaf because of the crash, you can instruct him to make fires, gather materials, revive you, and a lot more. Sometimes he will get stuck and possibly die, so we've prepared a guide on how to fix Kelvin getting stuck in Sons of the Forest.

Can you fix Kelvin getting stuck in Sons of the Forest?

Kelvin can get stuck in the water and in caves. The most common place to get stuck in a cave is at the cave nearest to the spawn point. When entering the cave, he will bug out and get stuck. If the bug starts at the beginning of the game, we advise you to start a new game and loot the cave before you interact with Kelvin. If it happens further in the game, you can load the most recent save if you don't mind losing a bit of progress. You can also walk away from the cave so he can respawn, and trying to sleep can fix him as well.

Can you revive Kelvin in Sons of the Forest?

If you have killed Kelvin because he got stuck (which is reasonable), the only method to revive Kelvin is not in the game. You will need to edit the save game files. Remember to do this at your own risk because it is not official and some problems and bugs can appear. Having a backup of your files is a must so you can be stress-free if something bad happens. If new bugs appear, replace the backup files over the game files, and everything will work normally.

To revive Kelvin you will need to:

  • Find the Sons of the Forest save files.
    • They should be located in “AppData\LocalLow\Endnight\SonsOfTheForest\Saves”
  • Find the GameStateSaveData.json and open it in Notepad.
    • You will need to change “IsRobbyDead\”:true” to “IsRobbyDead\”:false” and save the file
  • Now open the SaveData.json in Notepad.
    • Search for “\”State\”:6″ with Ctrl+F and change it to “\”State\”:2″
  • Now find “Health\”:0.0″ and change it to “Health\”:100.0″
  • Start the game and greet Kelvin.
