Each character has many stats, and understanding these stats is crucial for surviving in the harsh post-apocalyptic world. The Core and Extended Character Stats are viewable via the Character Window. Many of the listed stats are purely informational and do not have a direct effect on the game. There are also some hidden statistics, such as Speed, that do not show up in the Character Window. On the Game Mechanics page, a few of these statistics are also described.

Core Character Stats[ | ]

Health[ | ]

  • Health represents a character's overall physical well-being and resilience to damage. It is measured in hit points which serve as the units of damage the character can withstand before succumbing to their injuries. The Health stat displays as current Health / Max Health numbers.
  • When a character takes damage from various sources such as environmental hazards, falling long distances, or enemy attacks, their Health decreases accordingly. Once Health reaches zero, the character dies.
  • Health recovers naturally at a base rate of 1 point of Health per minute, as long as the character is not currently Starving or Severely Dehydrated, and at the cost of increased Water loss. Health can also be restored more quickly by using items that increase Health via Health Recovery, such as the various Canned Foods, a First Aid Bandage, or a First Aid Kit, or even immediately with Painkillers.
  • A character's Health can never exceed their Max Health less any Max Health Reduction caused by active Status Effects.
  • Max Health represents the maximum possible hit points that Health can reach, disregarding any Max Health Reduction being applied. Max Health starts at a base of 100 and increases by 1 with each Character Level. Certain types of Status Effects can cause a reduction of the effective Max Health. Refer to Max Health Reduction, one of the Extended Character Stats.

Stamina[ | ]

  • Stamina represents a character's available energy reserves used to perform various actions such as sprinting, jumping, swinging weapons, aiming bows, and using tools. It represents the character's physical endurance. The Stamina stat displays as current Stamina / Max Stamina numbers.
  • When a character uses Stamina during their various activities, their Stamina decreases accordingly. Once Stamina reaches zero, the character is no longer able to continue performing activities that require Stamina.
  • Stamina recovers naturally at a base rate of 8.5 points of Stamina per second, at the cost of increased Food and Water loss. Stamina recovers 15% more quickly while Water level is above 75 points. Stamina can be restored more quickly by using items that increase Stamina regeneration, such as the various Drinks.
  • Stamina recovers more slowly while running or swimming, and halts entirely for a short time after using the Secondary Action of any melee weapon.
  • A character's Stamina can never exceed their Max Stamina less any Max Stamina Reduction caused by active Status Effects.
  • Max Stamina represents the maximum to which your Stamina can be replenished, disregarding any Max Stamina Reduction being applied. Max Stamina starts at a base of 100 and increases by 1 with each Character Level. Certain types of Status Effects can cause a reduction of the effective Max Stamina. Refer to Max Stamina Reduction, one of the Extended Character Stats.

Food[ | ]

  • Food is a measure of the Food level of a character. Food is capped at 100 plus your Character Level.
  • In the absence of performing activities that use Stamina, Food decreases steadily at 30 points of Food lost per hour.
  • While recovering lost Stamina, Food decreases faster, making you lose more Food per hour.
  • Low temperatures can cause the status effects Cold or Freezing which can increase Food loss.
  • When Food drops below 50%, the status effect Hungry is applied.
  • When Food drops below 25%, the status effect Very Hungry is applied.
  • When Food drops below 2%, the status effect Starving is applied.
  • Food is increased by consuming items that increase Food, such as many of the Foods.

Water[ | ]

  • Water is a measure of the Water level of a character and is capped at 100 plus your Character Level.
  • In the absence of recovering lost Health naturally, Water decreases steadily at 40 points of Water lost per hour.
  • While recovering lost Health naturally, Water decreases faster, making you lose more Water per hour.
  • High temperatures can cause the status effects Hot or Sweltering which can increase Water loss.
  • While Water remains above 75 points, Stamina will recover 15% faster.
  • When Water drops below 50%, the status effect Thirsty is applied.
  • When Water drops below 25%, the status effect Dehydrated is applied.
  • When Water drops below 2%, the status effect Severely Dehydrated is applied.
  • Water is increased by consuming items that increase Water, such as many of the Drinks.

Temperature (Feels Like)[ | ]

  • Each biome has its own ambient temperature that fluctuates throughout the day and night and is influenced by local weather conditions.
  • Each character has their own Feels Like temperature, which is the net effect of the ambient temperature modified by Cold Resist and Heat Resist.
  • The optimal range for the Feels Like temperature is from 60°F to 80°F. Outside this range, negative effects occur.
  • When the Feels Like temperature drops below 60°F, the status effect Cold is applied.
  • When the Feels Like temperature drops below 40°F, the status effect Freezing is applied.
  • When the Feels Like temperature goes above 80°F, the status effect Hot is applied.
  • When the Feels Like temperature goes above 100°F, the status effect Sweltering is applied.

If Crit Resist is below zero any time an enemy causes damage, there is a chance that that attack will cause a critical injury. Once lowered by being damaged by an enemy, Crit Resist slowly goes up every few seconds. Crit Resist resets to its full base value anytime a critical hit is sustained or if no enemy damage has been taken for 15 seconds.
