Basic Info[edit | edit source]
Lacerations are deep irregular tear-like wounds, which will cause the player to bleed. Having a laceration will rapidly drain the players health and if left untreated the wound will quickly become infected. In most cases where the player health was already low before receiving a laceration, it can ultimately lead to death if not treated quickly.
When the player receives a laceration the screen will darken and the health meter will flash red for a second, indicating that a deadly wound has occurred. The inspect icon will also be displayed above the health meter on the left side of the screen.
Causes[edit | edit source]
The player can sometimes also receive lacerations while in combat or being attacked by natives.
Treatment[edit | edit source]
The player will need to inspect their body to find the location of the laceration. Once the laceration has been located, the player can use one of three methods to heal the wound.
- Using a bandage with disinfecting properties such as Honey Dressing and Ash Dressing will prevent infection, but the wound will heal slowly.
- The fastest and most effective way to heal lacerations, would be to use ants as stitching to close the wound. However this will cause pain and temporarily reduce the players sanity.
