At the very end of the game, you find a lab at the base of the oak tree in Grounded but there is a second base you can find after the main story ends. After the last mission, you are free to roam around in the open world of Grounded, and during this time you can go and search for another science base called the Hedge Research Base. The base in the hidden hedges is for those who like to explore every nook and cranny. In this guide, we will discuss the Head Research Base Location in Grounded.
How to Find Hedge Research Base Location
The Hedge Research base location is in the middle of the hedges close to the Southeast point of the map. It is somewhat of a vertical location in the branches of the hedge that must be climbed. The best way to find it is to head over to the field station in the hedge to the south portion of the backyard. Go to the south part of the hedges and look for the field station above the hedge branches.
You will notice a few orb weavers nearby who can be avoided by reaching higher ground. Now, start going east into the hedge and climb through the branches. There are some barriers in this area so pick them up as you go. Barries are great food sources in Grounded. Use the stuck Flingman Flying Frisbee as a halfway point marker.
There are many spiders in this area so make sure you craft strong weapons and armor before you visit this location. Keep going on the same path and soon you will find the base near the tree in the eastern edge. The Hedge Research Base is actually a large ship in Grounded. The ship is in the middle of the hedges and very easy to spot.
There are some enemies in the ship so prepare for battle as you enter. This large ship is locked and for the time being, there is no way to access it. However, as developers release more content the doors of the ship might open. The Hedge Research Base might be the location of an upcoming DLC for Grounded. We’ll know more in the future.
