Sons of the Forest Virginia – Recruitment and More!

By Adele Wilson |


Looking for a Sons of the Forest Virginia guide? You’ve come to the right place! Many players are curious about this 3 legged mutant who often appears in the distance – but who is she? Well, you can recruit her! Our guide contains all you need to know about how to gain her trust, and what she can do.

In Sons of the Forest, you’re given the task to find a missing billionaire on an eerily remote island. In true horror style, you’re surrounded by cannibalistic creatures throughout this environment. It’s up to you to survive this hellish island and complete your original task. You need to craft, build, and fight off danger at every turn.

The fantastic thing about Sons of the Forest is that your choice of play style is entirely up to you. You’re free to explore wherever you want, and you can do whatever you want! The game even features an immersive seasonal system, where certain food and resources only show up during specific times of the year.

Sons of the Forest Virginia Guide

Now, let’s move on to the guide!

Sons of the Forest Virginia

Let’s go over some of her features.

  • Has 3 legs and 3 arms
  • Medium-length blond hair
  • Wears a white leotard at first
  • Wears camo clothing once recruited (possibly found or crafted for her)
  • Scared of you when you first approach her
  • Terrified by nearby combat
  • Can learn how to use weapons
  • Loves sunbathing, but hates cold environments

Now, it’s up to you when it comes to how you interact with her. You can either scare her off, completely ignore her existence or try to gain her trust.

How to Find Virginia

Luckily, you don’t have to actively seek her out. You’ll soon spot her watching you from afar, as she is extremely interested in who you are, and what you’re doing. If you decide to walk towards her, she’ll get pretty frightened at first, and will run away from you. However, the more she appears, and the more you approach her, she eventually starts to trust you.

It’s important to note that you should approach her with no items or tools in your hand – especially weapons. This will result in her being scared of you, so make sure you look trustworthy!

When She Trusts You

Once she starts to trust you, she will randomly appear in your house/base. You may find her relaxing in a chair, or taking a nap. She’ll join your party once she offers you an aloe vera flower!

A Companion

You can’t tell Virginia what to do, as she acts freely. However, she does follow you around as you explore, and can be given weapons for combat.

  • As the game is new, we plan to update this guide with more information as soon as possible!
