Water is a core character stat in DayZ Standalone, which represents the character's current hydration levels through intake of water. Maintaining a healthy water intake keeps blood regeneration rates high as a result of a good blood-water content.

As with Energy, hydration is lost through one's metabolism at all times, a process that is increased with activity exertion. This means that it must be constantly replenished in order to remain alive and not become dehydrated. This is done through consuming food and drink.

Be careful as many sources can be contaminated and lead to troublesome, if not deadly - Cholera. Water is also key in washing hands to prevent the contraction of diseases from bloody hands when butchering corpses

Using Chlorine Tablets to purify water from unknown sources, boiling your water in a Cooking Pot or Frying Pan before drinking, finding a Water Pump to drink from or consuming Canned Drinks found in loot can prove the difference between a happy, mobile survivor and a dead one.
