Ethanol is an alcoholic medical item, and is an ingredient for several other Items.

Effects

Ethanol is a drink that applies a small amount of drunkenness, for the benefit of resistance to some mental effects. Alternatively, it may be applied directly to limbs to treat Infected Wounds.

The drunkenness effects are not dangerous from drinking one or two bottles, however even mild levels can cause Nausea and slowed movement. Drinking several in quick succession is not advised, as high Drunkenness can knock out a human. 5 or more doses is usually enough to knock someone out or bring them close to unconsciousness, and while the Drunk affliction cannot reduce vitality any further than -100, being unconscious can lead to dying by Oxygen deprivation.

The negative effects of drunkenness can be safely ignored by captains with the Drunken Sailor talent, since this talent removes the vitality, movement speed, and nausea effects of drunkenness.

As a disinfectant, it treats a small amount, and is most suitable for preventing mild infections from getting worse. The Burn damage is negligible, and will be fully healed in 20 seconds.

Infected Wounds are caused by Thresher bites, or can develop from Bleeding or Burns on higher difficulties.

Usage

Ethanol can be drunk by equipping the item, then holding right click Right Mouse. The item will lose condition at a rate of 30% per second, and will be removed when it reaches 0%. Ethanol is a one-handed item, so it is possible to drink two at the same time.

Like all Medical Items, Ethanol can be applied through the Health GUI (Default KeyH), which applies its disinfectant effect. See this page for more information on medical item usage.

Ethanol cannot be loaded into a Syringe Gun.

Ethanol is an ingredient in several useful items:

  • Welding Fuel Tank - Essential fuel for repairing and maintaining the hull of the submarine.
  • Fentanyl - A powerful and fast-acting opiate.
  • Chloral Hydrate - A drug capable of quickly knocking out a target for a short duration.
  • Deliriumine - A poison which causes extended Psychosis.
  • Rum - A similar, but much more potent drink than Ethanol.
