Is the 50% "reduction in consumption" a positive thing? I can't tell if I'm reading it badly or if it's worded badly. I'm approaching it with the assumption it should be negative, but the wording seems positive. 3mptylord (talk) 01:05, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

The 50% reduction in Food, Water, and Oxygen consumption is actually a positive effect on gameplay. While infected, players can be underwater longer and go much longer without having to eat or drink. Factor that in with the increased Movement Speed, and there are some players who intentionally infect themselves in order to speed-run caves with extreme temperatures (Snow Cave, for instance).
