The best light sources!

In Sons of the Forest, cave systems are a must to explore. It is quite scary down there though, and it doesn't help that it's really dark. Of course, you have your trusty lighter, but it's not going to help that much. There are alternatives to the lighter including the flashlight and the torch. They are more powerful and help you see better in the dark, but they can be tricky to find or craft. We prepared a guide to help you find out what the best light source in Sons of the Forest is.

To find the flashlight, you will need to make your way to the closest purple mark on the map. Take a look at the image above for the location. After you have reached it, you will see a stone. If you look closely there will be a rope tied to it. You need to cut the rope with your axe; after you have cut the rope, you will need to head down the mountain. There will be a person on the ground and close to him is the flashlight. Get it and equip it from the inventory.
