Can't get rid of the poison status effect in Stranded Deep? Here's a step-by-step guide on how to cure poison.

Figuring out how to cure poison in Stranded Deep can be difficult, especially in the early game. If you don’t know how to make the antidote, getting bitten by snakes and sea snakes or stepping on a sea urchin, for example, can quickly kill you. That’s why we’re here to tell you how to get “unpoisoned.” 

First, we’ll cover the sources of poison in the game, and then the steps you need to follow in order to craft an antidote. 

How to Cure Poison in Stranded Deep

Animals that Will Poison You

Luckily, there are no plants that will poison you in Stranded Deep. However, there are five animals that will. These include: 

  • Snake
  • Lionfish
  • Sea Snake
  • Sea Urchin
  • Crown of Thorns Starfish

Of the five animals, only the snake and the lionfish can be killed. The sea snake, the sea urchin, and the crown of thorns starfish cannot be killed. 

How to Craft a Poison Cure (Antidote)

1. Level Up Your Crafting

Before you can craft an antidote, you need to level up your crafting skill to Level 3. That is why it’s so important not to get poisoned early; if you don’t reach Level 3 in crafting, you will never be able to get rid of poison.

You can level up your crafting by making simple tools, such as the crude ax or crude hoe. Even crafting the stone tool and lashings will work. You can learn how to craft both in this guide.

2. Craft a Coconut Flask

Once your crafting skill has reached Level 3, you can start searching for coconuts to craft a coconut flask. Coconuts are easy to find lying under mature coconut trees, or you can knock them down if you have a crude bow, for example. 

To craft a Coconut Flask you need:

  • 1x coconut (fresh, not used)
  • 1x lashing

Use your crafting menu to combine these materials. 

3. Find a Pipi Plant

Now that you have a coconut flask, it’s time to harvest some Pipi plants. Pipi plants are very rare but they are the only plant in the game that can cure poison.

You can find Pipi plants on islands with giant rocks. Unfortunately, these islands are also inhabited by poisonous snakes, so be careful while searching for the plants. You can find them growing in small patches along the shorelines

Eventually, you can farm Pipi plants so that you have a steady supply of antidote. To farm, you must first craft a crude hoe, then use 4 wood sticks and 1 lashing to create a farm plot. 

4. Craft the Poison Antidote

Once you have all the necessary materials, you can craft an Antidote using this recipe:

  • 2x Pipi plant
  • 1x Coconut Flask

Consume the antidote as soon as you get poisoned, and it will be gone for good. Or until you get poisoned again. 

That is all you need to know on how to cure poison in Stranded Deep. There’s plenty else to know, though:
