Where to find the red keycard in Sons of the Forest
Before you can go retrieve the keycard, you’re going to need the shovel, which requires you to find the rebreather and the Rope Gun. The rebreather will be inside the cave close to the northern beach, near one of the spawn locations. There will be multiple enemies and mutants in this part of the cave, so be mindful of them. After fighting them, the rebreather will be towards the end of the cave, close to the pool of water with a shark in it. The Rope Gun is on another part of the island, near where you can find a 3D printer. It is also inside a cave full of enemies.

After you collect those two items, you’ll need to make your way close to the base of the snowy mountain, where you can find a GPS locator and another cave. Inside the cave will be a shovel, which requires both the Rope Gun and the rebreather to reach. You’ll find the shovel at the end of the cave.
The location you now need to reach to use the shovel should not be too far away. It will be the green icon you can see to the north on the way to the northern beach spawn site. When you arrive, you’ll find several golf carts nearby, and there is a patch of dirt where you can use your shovel. Use your shovel on the ground until you reveal a door leading to an underground bunker.
The bunker leads to a living area, and you should find the keycard in the back of the room on the left side, on top of a desk next to a computer.
