The Sons of the Forest Night Vision Goggles are in a cave, southwest of the snowy mountains, as indicated on the map above. The cave is relatively small compared to others and has one entry/exit point.

As you approach the cave entrance, it will be slightly submerged in a pond. Enter the cave and you'll notice a skeleton on an armchair, take the goggles from the skeleton and loot the crates nearby.

If the goggles aren’t on the skeleton, exit the cave and reload your save as it may be bugged.

Night Vision Goggles are useless during the day and will obscure your vision if you're using them with a flashlight equipped. At night, however, they can be used by selecting them in your inventory menu, once selected you can toggle them on or off with the L Key.

You can also hotkey them to a number on your keyboard for quick use by hovering your mouse over them in the inventory menu and pressing the correlating key you wish to attach it to. This will assign the object to that number for future use.

Although the Night Vision Goggles can be extremely useful for tackling the larger, darker caves, they require batteries, so you must be tactical when choosing to equip them.

That's everything you need to know about how to get Night Vision goggles in Sons of the Forest.
