This is EVERYTHING you need to know about Weapon Upgrades in The Forest. This extensive guide covers months of research and testing. Video was made during update v0.69, here are the following changes: * Machete upgrades have been fixed * Poison upgrades have a different look 0:06 - Introduction 0:32 - Are Upgrade Worth It? 1:03 - What Are The Upgrades? 1:47 - Feathers, Teeth, and Glass 3:39 - Sap 4:08 - The Weapons 4:43 - Upgrades for Each Weapon 5:31 - IMPORTANT INFORMATION! 6:24 - Placing Upgrades & Tips & Tricks 8:19 - Meme Magic 8:28 - Glass Upgrades Tips 9:25 - General Tips 11:05 - Upgrades are NOT percentage linked 11:45 - Removing upgrades + Tips 12:37 - Weapon Upgrade Speed Testing 13:19 - Tree Cutting Effects of Upgrades 14:02 - Fire Upgrades 17:37 - Upgrades to AVOID 18:11 - Stamina/Stanima Usage of EVERY Weapon 19:20 - Range of EVERY Weapon 19:39 - Best Weapon in the Game for Upgrades\ 19:57 - What is the Best Upgrade? 20:20 - What I think is the Best Upgrade 20:40 - Bonus Tip! I did not cover poison upgrades much because it is a very new system, only released in the same patch as this video was made in. Some of the footage is old, though it is all the information is current at the time of making the video. I strive to release videos daily for The Forest. My focus is give the information you need as quick as possible so you can get back to playing. Subscribe to see these videos daily and like if you can, it helps me out a lot.

yo farket i just have one small question, how do you endlessly click to upgrade your weapon, everytime i use 1 booze, sap on the modern axe, it goes back to "combine" option and i have to do it manually every single time. i see that you just click and click around the axe to add all the upgrades and see the boozes dissapearing, is there like a hotkey? Thank You.

So basicly the best upgrade is 10 10 9 ?
MrLovaLova (1 month ago)
Man you are just amazing. Have you ever considered opening a patreon account ?
Farket (1 month ago)
Best upgrade depends on how you play. 10 10 9 is a good all rounder. Start there and see how you go.

Not sure if something has been changed but, im unable to add booze to weapons now, only cloth. Any idea farket. Is there a update iv missed.
Max Noble (2 months ago)
I was wondering in all your how to find weapon videos how do you bring up the map
Snake Doctor (2 months ago)
Farket, did they remove the ability to add booze to a weapon with cloth on it -- and if so, does it mean you can now place 30 upgrades on those weapons?
Jonni_Darko (2 months ago)
The club you get from cannibal leaders can now also be upgraded, and since it has more base damage than the modern axe, it's become the new best weapon to use per hit.
Mark Smith (2 months ago)
All of these videos are EXTREMELY well done. Just half of the research and reporting in a video is better than what I've seen some of my peers do in a 6 month capstone for undergrad.
Farket (2 months ago)
Cheers. I don’t even know what capstone is haha. I am assume its something to do with video editing. Thanks for the feedback
Benjamin Schaub (2 months ago)
WHY CAN'T I DO THE FIRE + UPGRADE!?!?! (cloth & booze) I feel like i've tried everything but still it doesn't work! was it removed in V.73B?
Farket (2 months ago)
Tell me about it. Its so frustrating. Its a bug since they ‘fixed’ the inventory. They haven’t bothered to fix it yet.

Hayazo (2 months ago)
Personally, I, upgrading both :) with a ratio of 3:2 in favor of strength... 18 dmg upgrades, 12 speed upgrades.. makes weapon stronger, without losing speed at all, and even slighty increases it, thats just my preference
Katie Sanders (2 months ago)
Do you know why the fire on my ax goes out as soon as I swing it? It didn't light the cannibal on fire or do any extra damage.

what does 20 str and 99 str mean? if the modern axe with 30 glass does 10 at 20 str why would it do 5 at 99 str? it seems you compare katana at 99 for 12 against plane axe at 20 for 15?

Caddis (3 months ago)
Theres alot in this game that needs sorting. Too much fiddling with crafting, fighting an armzy and your cloth burns out, going back into your inventory and adding cloth during a fight is just 😕 ..... Its a damn good game but i reallyyyyyyyy hope they get round to making this game flawless. Your vids are brilliant too farket. Your a literaly my goto guy for "the forest" vids.
Caddis (3 months ago)
Farket i agree, iv never concentrated so hard on getting my clicks right when addin cloth to my axe during a fight 😅 just makes it a little fiddly. They SHOULD add discriptions to the item in the survival book too AND they SHOULD add another book on crafting items and modding items i think that is a must AND they should add more weapons and key slots for weapons so we can make a nice setup. Ty for the vids though man. There by far the best for this game.
Farket (3 months ago)
+Caddis Yeah it is like that aye. I think its on purpose to keep the survival element, keep you on your toes as much as possible. Cheers, thanks for the feedback.
Twhip56 Gaming (3 months ago)
so is there a total or 30 upgrades per weapon or is it a total of 30 upgrades for each permanent upgrade?

+Twhip56 Gaming Total of 30 over all

Lê Hoàng Phan (3 months ago)
i have a question. 29 glass or 15 glass + 14 teeth give more damage ?
General-_- Dude (3 months ago)
You said you can upgrade the machete, but didn't show any stats for the upgraded versions. I wanted to know if the machete gets better after upgrading it? Either way probably the most professional video out there and definitely had to sub and thumbs up
General-_- Dude (3 months ago)
Farket thank you, didn't know if the machete was worth it till just now
Farket (3 months ago)
+General-_- Dude It would of taken too long for each weapon to do that. When I made this, machete upgrades weren’t working though they have been fixed now. For highest damage, go 15 teeth and 15 glass on the machete. Avoid feathers as the machete has low damage as it is.

Reub Dartnell (4 months ago)
upgraded stick still the best. stamina, speed, fire damage, light source. plus it's cool to batter canibes with it. the only downside is the lower relative dmg but that's what the upgrades are for haven't found the perfect upgrade combo for stick yet though
Farket (4 months ago)
+Reub Dartnell Yeah it’s a good weapon. Try 15 glass and 14 teeth.
J Monkey (5 months ago)
Mate. Awesome video. Only came looking for one tip, and watched the whole thing. Very concise, educational, and helpful. Brilliant. Keep up the good work.

Cheers, thanks for the feedback. Hope you found that one tip lol
Brady Hight (5 months ago)
Super dislike the 29 upgrade limit we have to impose on ourselves. This feels much more like a development oversight than an intended mechanic. I hope we will see a small quality of life tweak in the future so we can have 30 upgrades and our fire upgrade.
Farket (5 months ago)
+Brady Hight Yeah it’s a pain aye to fix it you have to remove every upgrade. It doesn’t affect poison upgrades it seems. Hopefully they fix it.

Some Random Dude Dude (5 months ago)
Acording to my calculation the best upgrade is 20 feathers and 10 glass with makes +10 Damage +10 speed
Farket (5 months ago)
+Some Random Dude Dude that would be a good combo. Best is up to the individual. Depends how you play. Speed is useless to someone who fights mostly with power attacks for example.
It's perfect! All this stuff helped me a lot with upgrades, thanks to you :). Jokes, good explanation, interesting stuff - and all in one. Btw your voice a bit strange, but not so bad. Hello from Russia. P.S. sorry if I made grammar mistakes :/

The quality of these videos is amazing. I am new the The Forest and found your videos only recently. I checked to see if you did videos on any other games but nope. You really should you know, if you have time. It is certainly the only reason for relatively low subscriber count. Thanks for the vids and good luck in the future, I think you are talented.
Farket (5 months ago)
+krlll Cheers. Yeah I haven’t spanned as of yet. I haven’t been doing this very long, About 4 months. I don’t advertise or paid subs. It’s the common way peoples channels grow.

Awesome video man. I love how in-depth you go into the nuts and bolts. Been playing this game for a while now (since 0.34) and you always manage to sneak in something I didn't know. To borrow an auzzie-ism, cheers man
Farket (5 months ago)
+garou1911 Yeah I think a lot of these mechanics have never been tested. Haha cheers
