Mud is a one use item that occurs after it rains. It was added in v0.08 but it was later removed in an unknown update. It was added back into the game in update v0.30 of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Mud is used as camouflage to hide more effectively from cannibals and mutants and it is the earliest implementation of stealth in The Forest. It first gained functionality in the v0.08 update where stealth components were added. When mud is collected, it will add stealth. The amount is dependant on the difficult you are playing on. In hard survival mode, it applies 20%, you will have to add a lot of stealth armor to push past that point. When the character collects the mud, their arms will turn a murky dark color to resemble the mud covering them. Mud will wash away either with rain, or if you enter water. Camouflage won't work during a storm or if you are close up to the mutant. Mud can also be used to remove the bloodied effect

There are a number of effects that can only be applied one at a time:

  • Mud
  • Bloodied
  • Red Paint

If you pick up red paint while wearing mud, the red paint will remove the mud and the stealth effect
