Poison is an effect that can affect players, animals, cannibals, and mutants. The player can experience another type of poison, poisonous food which is different to poison.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The effect occurs when a player, animal, cannibal, or mutant is hit by poison arrow or hit by a poison upgraded weapon. It affects the player differently to how affects cannibals and mutants.

Effects on Players[edit | edit source]

The player will take damage over time, for about 30 seconds. During this time, each dot of damage will cause the player to flinch or be stunned. It is unknown if the damage differs between normal and hard. When a player is poisoned, they will also cause the player to become sick. It has a 100% chance of occuring when receiving a poison arrow, though it is unknown if a poison upgraded weapon will cause the same.

Due to these effects, if players are interesting in their own player vs player game, a poisoned weapon or arrow might be a good tactic.

The effect is not listed on the HUD, though may be listed in the stats page.

Effects on Animals, Cannibals and Mutants[edit | edit source]

When a creature is poisoned, it will appear with a green tint over it. Their movement speed and attack speed will be slowed by over 25%. This can make animals easier to hunt. This will make cannibals and mutants easier to kill or avoid.
