Icarus Recon Forest is a free-to-play Facebook game where players help an alien find his way home. The game’s developer, Slotica Games, has released additional quests and features to provide players with fresh content sans ads. With the addition of these new in-game mechanics comes something that could be considered “rewarding” for gamers: collecting gems. These colorful jewels are used to buy gear for your character or can be exchanged for other currency like Bitcoin and Etherium through external websites
Icarus features everything a survival game should have, from harsh terrain to crafts and frightening monsters. It also provides a little more direction, with missions that have a set of goals. The first one you’ll have to do is recon work in a woodland zone, which is ideal for a tutorial-style level where you can learn a few key interactions.
The tasks in Icarus do steer you in the right path, but the game doesn’t exactly hold your hand. Completing its Recon Forest: Zone goal may seem a bit hazy at first, particularly if you’re new to survival games. Fortunately, the area around your landing craft provides everything you need. Continue reading to find out how to complete the quest.
Three activities are included in Icarus’ Recon Forest: Zone goal, which are designed to familiarize you with some of the game’s main concepts. You’ll need to hunt, collect, and create stuff to finish it, as well as level up and construct a shelter and a bedroll.
You won’t need to go far from your starting point, and it’s better to begin by gathering stone, sticks, and fiber. By just walking about while holding the F key, these items may be readily picked up from the ground.
Craft a pickaxe and an axe after you have enough to start cutting down trees and mining rocks. These actions should enough to level you up at least once, finishing the second goal and teaching you how to collect and make.
When it comes to hunting, you should be able to locate deer and wolves close by, however you may have to go a few steps out from camp to discover them. Make sure you have at least one spear on hand.
Deer are more difficult to kill since they will flee even if you crouch and approach them quietly. At the same time, pushing and holding the right mouse button transforms the spear into a ranged missile, which is ideal exercise for your throwing arm.
Killing wolves is faster, but if you’re not cautious, they’ll swarm you. The objective is to use your spear as a melee weapon, aim for the head, and try to avoid their strikes as much as possible. Don’t forget to construct the stone knife blueprint and use it to skin the animals after you’ve unlocked it. It’s possible that you’ll need their fur to make the bedroll.
At launch, the third job necessary to fulfill Icarus’ Recon Forest: Zone goal is inconclusive. We never had to make a bedroll and completed it by laying down a few pieces of thatch floor, which are still part of the very first shelter you may make.
We also built the campfire before they arrived, but we don’t know whether that plays a role in finishing the objective. Regardless, you may depart the place by engaging with your landing craft after you’ve completed all three chores.
That’s all there is to know about Icarus’ Recon Forest: Zone goal, as well as the area you’ll need to visit to achieve it.
