Tarp has more uses.
It could've used to catch rain for example

I agree with the above point as to what resources may already exist in the deserted island resources. Such as, are there wild boars there, if so, then it is better to be safe than sorry - so the rifle for sure. Also, firing the rifle three times can also serve as an audible SOS signal, and I understand water carries sound long distances.
A pot to boil water, which is safer than filtering.
A tarp to use for shelter, rain gear, rain collection, should I have to be on the move.
A mirror to make fire and to signal a SOS, and to fix my hair when rescued. lol
I could probably find a sharp stone to replace the knife.
I could cover myself in mud or find an oily plant to apply to exposed skin to help ward off insects.
