Water fills up your hydration bar in Green Hell. If you don’t know how to check your hydration and other levels, hold F to open the watch. In here, you can see your hydration, carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Whilst you can also use the scroll wheel to navigate between the compass and clock.
Water is one of the most important things to keep on top of. And also one of the more difficult things to know how to gather as it isn’t covered in the tutorial.
Luckily, we have a guide below. Whilst we have many more Green Hell guides here at PwrDown!
How to Collect Water
There are a few easy ways to gather water in Green Hell that are fast. For example, picking fruits off trees, finding locations that contain snacks that you can eat. These don’t last forever though.
You can also try drinking from a river or pond, but this will likely just make you ill. Eventually, you’ll need to set up an actual clean water supply.
One of the easiest ways to do this would be by using coconuts. You will often find coconuts lying around on the ground. You can see one on the image below.
You’ll need to hit the coconut with an axe to open it. Then you can choose to drink it, then harvest it. You will receive two empty coconut shells in your inventory.
Select the coconut shells in your inventory, and simply drop them on the ground. They will act as a bowl and passively collect rain water which you can keep drinking. Each time you find more coconuts, you can expand the number of bowls to have a constant supply of fresh water.
This works perfectly until you can build more complex items such as a rain catcher. Just interact with a coconut bowl on the ground to drink from it.
