How to trigger the infinite log glitch in ‘Sons of the Forest.’

The infinite log glitch has been common knowledge for some players since March. Developer Endnight Games tried to patch this out when it caught wind of the glitch, but players discovered newer duplication methods after the update.

A popular method to trigger the infinite log glitch is to build two or more log holders close together, then pick up a log in one of them and put it back down with “g.”

Since the holders are next to each other, the “g” option should show for both interactables, sending the single log into both once you click the button. The caveat is that you must make multiple holders first without the glitch, but once you get going, you can infinitely duplicate logs without much hassle.

Now, if you want to bypass all the legwork and just type in a cheat, there’s a method for that, too.

A cheat code lets you duplicate logs fast in multiplayer and solo games.

According to a video from YouTuber Subscribe, players can boot up the vanilla version of Sons of the Forest and type a cheat code to duplicate as many logs as they want.

To do this, type “cheatstick” and hit “F1,” then type in “loghack on.” On the screen that pops up, you can put the number of logs you want without any restrictions, instantly dropping in front of you.

Whether you go for the glitch or type in the cheat, there are various methods for duplicating logs that work. As a reminder, there’s always the chance of them being patched, so use them while you can.
