Forager: What Happens If You Die in Forager?


GamingForager: What Happens If You Die in Forager?

Forager can be stressful at times, especially when you see that you only have one heart left in the top left corner of the screen. The big question is, what happens when you die?

Well, the first thing you will see is a Game Over screen. Which is enough to make your heart skip a few beats. This sort of insinuates that the game is in fact over, and you’ll have to start again.

Uh Oh

But that’s not the case, thankfully. After dying, you’ll be taken to a screen where the developer will thank you for playing, then returned to the main menu. Your save is still there, ready to be loaded back up.

The save will likely take you back to a few seconds or minutes from when you died. Just make sure to kill whatever attacked you and regenerate your health.

Below, we have put together some tips and steps you can take to prevent yourself from dying in Forager. If you want to check out some more guides for the game, make sure to check out our Forager Guides section!

Increase Maximum Health

One of the easiest ways to prevent death in Forager is increasing your maximum health. That’s right, you can increase the number of hearts you have from 3 to a total of 18! You can also increase your energy whilst you’re at it.

To increase your maximum health, you will need to use Spirit Orbs. These can be found in Big Chests, however they’ll show up in Markets quite often so you can buy them. When using one, you will be able to choose whether you want to increase max health by 1, max energy, combat damage or level up instantly.

Just choose the health option. There is actually a feat/challenge that you will unlock too by having 10 maximum health.

Increase Dodge Chance

There are some items in the game which will increase your dodge chance. This means it will take enemies multiple hits to take damage off you. The first item being boots. A basic set of boots will increase your dodge chance by 10%, with the highest upgraded versions increasing the dodge chance to a total of 25%.
