Sons of the Forest – how to get Virginia
Virginia is a friendly NPC in the game who appears to be halfway through the mutating process, with three arms and three legs. However, she has managed to halt the mutation and remains friendly and helpful to the player.
To obtain Virginia as a companion, players must interact with her in a friendly manner. Attempting to attack or scare her away will cause her to quickly escape. Once she joins the player as a companion, she will initially be extremely timid during combat with other mutated enemies. Players will need to help Virginia acclimate to combat multiple times before she is willing to assist in fights.
It should be noted that Virginia despises the cold but thrives in warmer conditions, particularly when exposed to the sun. Encountering Virginia during the daytime or while under the sun will likely only benefit players attempting to gain her favor. Players can also equip Virginia with multiple weapons at once, given her multiple arms. For the best combination, players can equip Virginia with both a shotgun and pistol to take out enemies both at close range and from afar.
Overall, adding Virginia to the player’s team of survivors is a great benefit, as she becomes one of the best assets in Sons of the Forest. If you liked this guide, feel free to take a look at some of our other guides such as how to get the rope gun and use the zipline and how to get the shovel.
