A chunk of fat, good for cooking purposes. It can catch fire quickly, though. — In-game description

Fat is an item that can be obtained from medium to large animals and Survivors by skinning and quartering them with a Knife after they have been killed.

Consuming (un)cooked Fat harvested from Survivors has a high chance of causing Brain Prion Disease.

Note: Fat harvested from Survivors is not specifically labelled as 'Human Fat' so take care to not mix Animal and Human Fat in inventory or storage.

Uses:[edit | edit source]

  • It can be be used to craft, upgrade and refuel Torches.
  • It can be cooked over a Fireplace using a Long Wooden Stick, in a Cooking Pot or Frying Pan in order to make it safer to eat and easier to preserve.
    • It is recommended you always take this food item because statistically it is one of the most nutritious when baked and will sustain a Survivor for long periods!
  • Human Fat can be used in a Cooking Pot or Frying Pan with Animal Steak for Baking/Drying without contaminating the meat with Brain Prion Disease.
    • (This has been verified as at patch 1.08 but may be subject to change in future patches.)
