How to Eat in Kenshi: Just Do It

Kenshi is hard in a lot of ways, but staying well-nourished isn't one of them.

You've got a ton of things you have to worry about in Kenshi, and eating is sort of one of them.

Well, it's halfway one of them -- you've certainly got a lot more to worry about, but you've got to eat or you'll wither away and die.

There are two steps to eating:

  1. Have food
  2. Get hungry

After both steps are completed, your character will automatically eat any food you may have in your inventory. Really, that's it. You don't have to manually eat.

You can purchase food stuffs from traders or make it yourself. Bread, which is easy to make, will very likely be a staple of your diet but is generally a bit pricey from traders.

If you don't want to cook, dried fish is one of the cheapest food options out there and can be found at fish traders.

Eating in Kenshi really is this simple, thank goodness. It would be nice if there were an animation for eating, but auto-eating is fine, too.
