How to open the strange Arm Door in Sons of the Forest

For those of you that need a hand!

Like its predecessor, Sons of the Forest throws every piece of the storyline behind locked doors.

Instead, it leaves players to discover their path and reveal the island's mysteries. Some players, on their adventures, have found a strange metal door with an arm-like indentation on them. This guide will explain how to open it and what lies behind!
