Description[edit | edit source]
Stamina is one of the four main player statistics. Represented by a royal blue horizontal bar that bears a running shoe, it is located at the bottom left of the player's screen. It decreases when running or swinging a tool or melee weapon. Max Stamina can be increased by eating food, and the Stamina cap can be increased by purchasing perks. The more Stamina the player has, the more damage their melee hits cause to blocks and zombies. Stamina will slowly regenerate while standing or walking, and regeneration speed can be sped up by drinking water.
Stamina Depletion[edit | edit source]
Stamina is depleted when the player engages in certain actions, these are as follows:
- This causes a steady constant drain on Stamina.
- Using certain Tools
- This causes a certain amount of Stamina depletion each time a tool is used. The amount used varies from tool to tool.
- Using Weapons
- This causes a certain amount of Stamina depletion each time a weapon is used. The amount used varies from weapon to weapon.
Stamina can also be depleted when the player is experiencing heat stroke or hypothermia due to Weather Effects, and from being infected.
When the player's Stamina runs out, they won't be able to run, and their tools work half as well as they could. Something to keep in mind when using a Pickaxe, Sledgehammer, Shovel and etc. is Stamina. The lower the Stamina level, the less power the tool will deliver. In the case of a pick axe, this means it would take double the swings to destroy a block. This is important because like all tools, the Pickaxe has a Durability level and the player will want to try to get the most out of each item.
Stamina Restoration[edit | edit source]
Stamina will slowly recover over time, providing the Max Stamina is larger than the current amount and the player is not thirsty. There are a few items in the game that the player can use to replenish their Stamina bar, the following items all have a positive effect on Stamina.
- Boiled Water
- Bottled Water
- Corn on the Cob

Although there are some items that can replenish Stamina there are also a few items than can harm the player and will deplete their Stamina bar, the following items all have a negative effect on Stamina, in addition to causing various negative status effects.
