7 Days to Die Wiki


Many of the food or drink items, environments, interactive objects or events in 7 Days to Die can give the player a particular status effect. These are expressed as a positive or negative buff. A corresponding icon will be displayed above the player's health bar. This can be found in the lower left corner of the screen while a buff is active. Many of them give either a temporary or permanent gain or loss in health, strength, stamina, damage resistance. It is possible to have multiple Buffs active at the same time.
