Caches are locations in the game where Henry can get items for the use of the plot, collecting, or of no use at all. In each box, there is a local area map with some routes that can be transferred to Henry's map, a note between Ron and Dave, and some items. The Caches are boxes on stilts, painted orange with the Firewatch logo painted on the top. The boxes are locked; the access code for each is 1-2-3-4. There are several caches around the game map. The player is not required to open them all.
