The GPS Locators are much more useful than originally thought, as they can be given to companions, or used as a landmark to mark a special place on the map. If players are hoping to form a Landmark, they’re going to need to get their hands on a stick. Just a simple, run-of-the-mill stick.

Take your stick, jam it into the ground at the location that you would like to mark, and place the GPS Locator right on top of it. Just like that, you’ve got yourself a landmark. Never lose track of where your base is ever again, or where you found that amazing supply of food.

It’s a great tool to have, especially if you’re playing on a harder difficulty setting.

While the game itself is running pretty well, knowing how to improve your performance no matter the PC can help Sons of the Forest go from good to great in a matter of a few clicks. It may not perform great on the go just yet, but with the updates in store, you’ll be ready to go wherever you are soon.
