How To Find Food And Water in Subnautica

The foremost task that you would be doing after getting out of your Lifepod is finding your daily necessities which are Food and Water.

Many people face the problem of finding Food and Water in the Subnautica game. S0, We are providing to complete guide to getting Bladderfish, Water, and Food.

How to Collect Water and Bladderfish

Well, there is a whole sea at your foot, drink as much as you want (terrible joke). But seriously one of the easiest tasks is finding water in SubNautica.

The means by which you will obtain water is “The Bladderfish”. Bladdy is one of the most versatile raw materials. She is used to fabricating food, water, air bladder, and energy.

Gradually with time you’re your meters for food and water will start decreasing from 100 to 0 so start gathering lots of Bladderfish as soon as you get out of the Lifepod. To be honest there are hoards and hoards of them just outside our Lifepod. The popular locations(biomes) are Safe Shallows and Grand Reef.

Bladdy isn’t friendly and to be fair she is a baddy in every sense but because she is a fatty she isn’t that hard to catch (BaDjOke). Bladdy is diurnal in nature meaning she is only active during the day so it makes sense to catch them after the sun sets as they are as good as immobile after that. Though you can catch them anytime.

Eating the fish raw will restore 15 points of oxygen and this is generally a strategy used in survival modes.

You will have other sources of water later in the game but at the beginning the only source of water right now is the bladder fish. Collect the Bladderfish and collect them in a bunch as ones or twos want to suffice(as you want to create food as well). Bring it to your fabricator and fabricate it. One Bladderfish gives you 6oz of water (+20 H2O).

So, when it comes to food peepers are your best choice whereas the Bladderfish should be mainly used to get filtered water. Peepers are often considered the mascots of SubNautica.

Some Tips to Get fast food

A very common mistake that early gamers make is that they fabricate food unnecessarily. The thing with fabricated food (for the case of fish) is that it starts rotting as soon as it gets fabricated so you have to eat it almost immediately.

Fish can be stored in your Storage compartment once you catch it from the water and will not rot for a long while (will never rot) in there as it stays alive but once it gets fabricated it will start rotting. Henceforth cook what you need to eat.
