How to Beat a Forest Keeper in Lethal Company
If you have been to one of the three moons of Lethal Company that have a forest biome, then there is a high chance you have encountered the Forest Keeper. Its large footsteps are audible far before it comes close to you and in the darkness of the forest, it is one of the most dangerous monsters in the outdoors. While it is not possible to defeat a Forest Keeper directly, there are ways to escape its grasp and an even more complicated way to “get rid” of it.
Defeating the Forest Keeper in Lethal Company
The Forest Keeper is a gigantic monster that roams the forest biomes of the moons Vow, Dine, and March. While it is not the most lethal creature in the game, its sheer power and predatory instincts make it a formidable opponent. These animals, according to Sigurd's diary notes, exhibit behavior similar to that of a human infant, but they can be dangerous for unsuspecting gamers.
Survival Against the Forest Keeper
Stealth is Key: The Forest Keeper cannot be defeated by players directly, so the best strategy is to avoid detection. Move quietly while crouched, use trees as cover, and stay out of its line of sight. The creature tends to be less aggressive if players remain undetected.
Teamwork and Distractions: If a Forest Keeper spots a player, it will give chase. Teammates can come to the rescue by using stun grenades or zap guns to momentarily incapacitate the creature, providing an opportunity for the hunted player to escape. Quick thinking and coordination are crucial in these high-pressure situations.
Time Management: Forest Keepers are more likely to appear after 4 PM, especially in areas with higher danger levels. To minimize encounters, players should efficiently complete essential tasks on the moon and plan their scavenging expeditions accordingly.
Taking Down the Forest Keeper
While players cannot directly defeat the Forest Keeper, there is a risky yet effective method involving the Earth Leviathan, the game's largest monster:
Lure the Leviathan: Lead the Earth Leviathan outside the safety of the ship by running in its vicinity. This colossal creature is the only known predator of the Forest Keeper.
Tactical Movement: Dodge the Leviathan's attacks and taunt the pursuing Forest Keeper. Preserve stamina and use cover wisely to avoid the Forest Keeper's relentless pursuit.
Executing the Maneuver: When the Leviathan's rumble signals its emergence, run from cover straight ahead. The Leviathan will leap up and devour the Forest Keeper, ending the threat. This maneuver requires precise timing and strategic planning.
In Lethal Company, surviving the Forest Keeper involves a combination of stealth, strategy, and teamwork. With these tips, and a little bit of luck and calmness, you have everything you need if you happen upon a Forest Keeper.
