The Canteen is a better, considerably lighter version of the Water Jar.png Water Jar. It is one of the least expensive items that requires fabricator-crafted materials.

Usage[edit | edit source]

To drink from the canteen, highlight it in your inventory and select Use Item, or put it on your hotbar and press the designated key. This can be done 3 times for 100 water each before depletion, but only if your water isn't full.

To refill the canteen, use it while standing in the rain or while standing in shallow water. You can also fill it by placing it in the inventory of a Stone Irrigation Pipe - Tap.png Stone Irrigation Pipe - Tap or Metal Irrigation Pipe - Tap.png Metal Irrigation Pipe - Tap.

Iced[edit | edit source]

An Iced Canteen

You can put a filled Canteen into a Refrigerator.png Refrigerator or a Tek Trough.png Tek Trough and will get an Iced Canteen after 60 seconds. Drinking from an Iced Canteen increases your Hyperthermal insulation by 84 and decreases your hypothermal insulation by the same amount, which makes it easier to survive in the heat of Scorched Earth days, but more difficult during the cold nights. Once removed from the fridge, the Iced Canteen will "spoil" into a normal canteen after 10 minutes. However, leaving it in the fridge will extend the spoil time to what equates to almost 3 real years.

Notes / Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Due to a bug the canteen couldn't be refilled in a tap before Patch 192.0.[1]
  • In Primitive Plus 1.5 this engram cannot be learned.
