"You are sweltering. Find clothing or take shelter. When you're sweltering, you will get thirsty faster."
If a character's "feels like" temperature reaches 100°F (37.7°C) or higher the Sweltering buff will be applied. A red sun icon will appear in the HUD and the edges of the screen will gradually take on an orange hazy look. This buff greatly increases the character's consumption of water when recovering Stamina, causing him/her to get thirsty much more quickly. The effects of this buff can be mitigated or completely counteracted by the Well Insulated perk.
