Unsafe Water

Unsafe Water is one of the Items in the game The Long Dark.


  • Drinking unsafe water can make you sick with dysentry.
  • The only way to make unsafe water is to melt it from snow over a Fire. Additional boiling, or the use of a Water Purification Tablet, will turn it into Potable Water.
  • Recipes that require potable water, like making a cup of Coffee, cannot be crafted with unsafe water.
