The Waterskin is an tool item that was added in update V0.14 of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Waterskin is a craftable portable water source, very handy if you are away from drinkable water. The waterskin can be used to collect either polluted or clean water, it can then be used from the inventory to quench thirst. When looking at your inventory, you will see what percentage the water skin is filled. Even if it is partially or completely filled, you can now equip the water skin using the left click button (it is no longer required to right click it onto the crafting mat first).

A water-skin can currently be used to gather water from the following water-sources:

As of v0.70, the waterskin can be used to gather water from the old pot. Use the old pot to gather polluted water, place it on a lit Basic Fire or Fire Pit. Once it has boiled, select the waterskin and press/hold E. This will transfer the contents from the old pot to the waterskin. Make sure you collect your old pot before leaving.

You can only hold one water-skin at a time, and since v0.49 the weapon racks will no longer accept backup water-skins.
