Stranded Deep: How to Get Water

Stranded Deep How to Get Water in Stranded Deep Water Still

Thirst is one of the most important stats in Stranded Deep. While others are important, this one can easily kill you without even realizing it. But where can you get water from? There is water everywhere, but it’s salty and, unfortunately, toxic for the human body. Luckily, we know a few ways you can get your Thirst back. Here is how you can get water and raise your Thirst in Stranded Deep!

How to Get Water in Stranded Deep

Stranded Deep How to Get Water Coconut

Four different methods can help you get drinkable water in Stranded Deep. Some are obvious, some are not:

Coconuts Are Great

This is the one everyone knows. Coconuts are the go-to fruit for hydration in Stranded Deep. It fills about 3/4 out of a Thirst bar per coconut.

The only problem with coconuts is that if you drink more than two in a row, you will get diarrhea. This will cause your Thirst to suddenly drop and kill you in a matter of seconds. This is how many rookies die during the early game.

Here is exactly how to get water out of coconuts in Stranded Deep without dying:

  1. Break the coconut’s shell with a spear (or any other sharp weapon).
  2. Pick them up and drink two of them.
  3. Look at your watch and wait for 10 in-game minutes to pass (10 seconds in real life).
  4. Drink two coconuts again, with no repercussions.

You can do this until your Thirst fills back up. This makes coconuts a great source of hydration and probably one of the best ways to get water in Stranded Deep.

Stranded Deep How to Get Water Water Still

Water Still Will Get You Water in Stranded Deep

The Water Still is, by far, the best way to get and collect water in Stranded Deep. It is the only source in the game that produces water constantly.

Though the still can collect water from rain, usually the best way to use it is to put a fibrous leaf or palm fronds under it. Each leaf will produce one bar of water.

You can also use the Water Still to collect water in the various “bottles” that you can make (Coconut Flask, Water Skin, Water Bottle).

To build the Still, just look into the crafting menu at the icon that looks like a tent. There, players will also find what necessary items they need to make this lifesaver.

Stranded Deep Get Quwawa Fruit

Fruits Work As Well

Fruits are a great source of water and, also, food! They will provide you with one serving of food and one full bar of Thirst. There is no significant difference between the Quwawa fruit and the Kura fruit besides their trees.

The Quwawa tree is very small and you would most likely think it is more of a branch rather than a tree. The Kura tree is taller, but not enough for you to have to climb it.

The advantage of gathering these fruits is that you can later grow them back at the base, helping you get a clear source of water in Stranded Deep.

Stranded Deep Get Rations

Rations, Nobody Knows Where To Find Them

Extremely rare to get, rations can help you get your Stranded Deep water dependency in check. Again, they are really hard to come by, so don’t put your trust in this water source.

Stranded Deep is available on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Mac.
