In the zombie-infested world of Project Zomboid, poison is a very real and serious threat. Consuming poisonous food items can lead to serious illness or even death, so it is important to be aware of the dangers posed by wild berries, mushrooms, and other food sources.
The first step is to understand which items are poisonous and which are safe. Those with the Herbalist trait can identify poisonous food items, but those without the trait will have to take a risk and eat something to see if they become sick. Eating two of the same item will let you know if it is poisonous, but this should be done with caution, as ingesting too much of a poisonous item can be fatal.
Lemongrass can be used to offset the effects of poison, and can be helpful in mild cases. If you find yourself severely ill, however, antibiotics may be the only way to save your life.
In addition to the Herbalist trait, the Herbalist magazine can be read, giving the same effect as having the trait. It can also be crafted into a book, giving the same effect as the magazine. The Herbalist trait can also be chosen in character creation, giving the player the ability to identify poisonous berries and mushrooms, as well as the ability to find herbal medicines.
It is also important to be aware of any traits that may make you more susceptible to poison. Weak stomach, prone to illness, and slow healer can all make the effects of poison more severe, and should be taken into account when foraging.
By following the tips outlined above, you can reduce the risk of being poisoned in Project Zomboid and stay safe in the zombie apocalypse.
