Having a rain catcher in an area you frequent or at your base can be beneficial as it will reduce the time you would spend searching for water sources to drink fresh water or refill your water bottle. Rain Catchers take a long time to fill, so build a couple of them to get the maximum amount of water you can collect. You need 16 sticks and a single turtle shell to build a rain catcher.

Will the turtle shell have any use in Sons of the Forest?
The other use of the Turtle Shell in the original game, The Forest, was to use it as a sled. It was a lot of fun because you could build roller coasters and use Shell as a cart. Unfortunately, this is not possible in Sons of the Forest because there is a new item called Sleigh. You can create it with a 3D printer using 1000 printer resin, making it the most expensive 3D printer item. Using the sled to go down a hill will significantly increase your speed and you will have fun too.
