Food poisoning

From The Long Dark Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Food Poisoning is an Illness caused by eating either undercooked food or food with a low condition. Any natural food that can be cooked but isn't, such as meat or fish, can cause the affliction. Food with a low condition rating ("Mouldy" for Candy Bar or Peanut Butter, or "Banged Up" for cans like Tomato Soup) can also cause food poisoning, although not as frequently. This is true even if the food has been cooked, and is reliant upon the food's condition rating.

Eating a food that can cause Food Poisoning will not always do so, and the player is immediately informed if they are.

Effects

A player affected by food poisoning will lose Condition until they expire or treat the condition.

Treatment

To recover from food poisoning, the player must take either 2 Antibiotics or a cup of Reishi Tea, and then sleep for a period of two to ten hours. Both of these actions must be completed before the condition goes away. Condition will not decrease while the player is sleeping if they have taken the medicine, but it will not increase until the full time has elapsed.
