OverviewEdit

Stamina represents the energy of a survivor. The amount each character has is determined by their Cardio skill, their physical state and various facilities at home.

Using StaminaEdit

Stamina is drained by any action other than running or sneaking around.

These following activities reduce Stamina instantly when used (the exact amount varies in each activity)

These following activities drains Stamina over time

  • Sprinting. For simple wording, the speed at which Stamina is drained when sprinting is temporarily theorized as 8 Stamina/sec (4/sec with Marathon Special Technique). Characters that are encumbered or carrying a rucksack have their Stamina drained three times as fast, or roughly 24 Stamina/sec (12/sec with Marathon).
  • Using the Focus Aim Special Technique.

Regenerating StaminaEdit

Without SnacksEdit

  • When the character engages in physical activities, the blue Stamina bar drops, leaving behind a yellow trail.
  • Only after the character ceases all stamina-draining activities, the yellow trail shortens and disappears entirely.
  • After that, the bar starts regenerating.
  • Characters with Reflexes trait regenerates Stamina faster.
  • Characters with Bad Back trait regenerates Stamina 50% slower when encumbered. Those with Bum Knee trait regenerates Stamina 50% slower when crouched.

With SnacksEdit

Stamina constantly regenerates, even when the character engages in physical activities (i.e when fighting, sprinting). The regeneration rate is at a varied pace, depending on player action.

  • At an ideal condition, Stamina regens at 16 Stamina/sec.
  • When sprinting (unencumbered), Stamina regens at 8 Stamina/sec. When sprinting (encumbered), Stamina drains at 8 Stamina/sec.

Reduced Max Stamina Edit

After exploring, the character gets tired, having their Max Stamina reduced. Each level of tiredness reduces their Max Stamina by 20%. Characters recover from tiredness by:

  • Resting (the player switches to another character)
  • Using a stimulant (temporary)
  • Using Words of Inspiration or Words of Encouragement radio call.
  • Experiencing an "I'm glad you're here" positive reaction with another survivor (random event)

Also, certain injuries can also reduce maximum Stamina. Rest in a Medical Area is advised to get the character back top shape.

Raising Max StaminaEdit

Maximum Stamina is raised by

  • Improving Cardio skill: each level adds 5 Stamina.
  • Sleeping Area: 10 bonus Stamina for everyone (permanent - if the number of beds is greater than number of survivors)
  • Cooking Area - Prepare a Feast: 10 bonus Stamina for everyone (temporary)
  • Training Area: 10 bonus Stamina for everyone (permanent). Activating Fitness Regiment adds an additional 10 (temporary).

Notes Edit

  • For simple wording, the speed at which Stamina is drained when sprinting is temporarily theorized as 8 Stamina/sec (it's the same for all characters).
  • Sprinting inside a home site does not drain Stamina
  • Sick characters get tired faster.
