Water is a measure of how hydrated you are. Your water levels naturally decrease over time, but actions that consume  Stamina will also drain your water. If you are  Hot or sprint, you will become thirsty faster. Eating  Stimberries or  Auric Mushroom will also cause a rapid decline in water levels. If your Water reaches 0.0, you will become  Dehydrated, draining your  Health at approximately 1 hp per 5 seconds, and gradually increasing  Torpidity. You can refill your Water by drinking from a body of water or a  Tap, submerging yourself, using a  Waterskin,  Canteen,  Water Jar,  Tek Canteen, Custom Drinks, by standing in water or the rain.


Putting a point into Water will increase your maximum Water by 10. This allows you to hold more water, meaning that it will take longer to degrade down to 0, although most players would consider this a waste of a point.


  • Eating any  Berries other than  Stimberry and  Narcoberry will provide a small amount of water (0.2 units).
  • Eating  Calien Soup or  Cactus Broth will significantly reduce the rate at which your water level decreases.
  • You can also spawn in water with the command GFI container 1 0 0 if you have access to commands. Useful for getting water on the Scorched Earth DLC, as there is not much water around.
  • Rain instantly fills your water and prevents it from decreasing.
  • You can drink water from Ocean, Swamp, and in Snow Cave, as long as there is a water source, drinking them will never be harmful. You can even refill your water gauge by swimming in some lava and elemental river(although you are more than likely to die if do so). However, do not imitate these in real-life.
