There are currently three keycards in Sons of the Forest which give you access to secret rooms in the various bunkers on the island. If you want to reach the endgame of Sons of the Forest and discover more of the main plot, you'll need the keycards first. Stick with us as we go through all keycard locations in Sons of the Forest and major items of interest near them.

Some keycards are in bunkers and are locked behind restricted access, meaning you'll need to collect other keycards first. For that reason, we recommend collecting the keycards in the order written below. You will also need the Shovel to uncover some of these bunkers.
