How to Get Food

Foraging and Gathering

  • Canned Food: Often found in ruined buildings and man-made structures, these are a quick source of nourishment and are improved when cooked.
  • Berries and Mushrooms: Harvested from bushes, the ground, and tree trunks, these provide early sustenance. Be cautious of poisonous varieties.
  • Animals: Hunting provides meat with significant benefits once cooked, though it might not be feasible early on, especially in Endless Mode.

Food Freshness

All food items come with a freshness level that decreases over time, leading to spoilage. Spoiled food is less beneficial and may cause negative effects.

How to Cook in Winter Survival

Cooking transforms ingredients into more beneficial or different food items. Mopst recipes are unlocked through quest progression in Story Mode or by increasing your Adaptation Level in Endless Mode. Be mindful not to leave food on the fire for too long, as it can burn. Some cooked foods can revert to their previous states if not consumed timely.

Access the cooking interface by a lit fire, where you can combine ingredients to create meals.

Cooking Tips

  • Always monitor the freshness of ingredients to avoid spoiling.
  • Utilize the cooking interface efficiently by combining the right ingredients to unlock and prepare the desired recipes.
  • Be vigilant while cooking to prevent food from burning, as this will negate any benefits the food might offer.

That wraps up our Winter Survival cooking recipes guide. With these, you should be better equipped to face the challenges of the snowy wilderness, ensuring your survival with yummy meals that buff your character.
