Liquid Oxygenite is a medical item that treats Oxygen Low. Explodes on impact.


Liquid Oxygenite is a medicine that can be used to treat Oxygen Low. It is also highly volatile, and explodes when impacting creatures or structures.

This medicine can be used to keep an unconscious character from suffocating, or with higher dosages, keep conscious a character that is not breathing. Usage will incur a moderate amount of Organ Damage as a side effect.

Only one dose is required to keep an unconscious character alive, and just over 3 doses are required to keep a conscious character from losing Vitality.

As an explosive, Liquid Oxygenite deals appreciable damage to Creatures. It can be used as ammunition in the Syringe Gun as a highly effective weapon.


Like all Medical Items, Liquid Oxygenite can be applied through the Health GUI (Default Key H). See this page for more information on usage.

Liquid Oxygenite can be loaded into a Syringe Gun, and can also be swung from the hand to apply its effects to whatever it hits. Liquid Oxygenite will not explode when swung from the hand.

Liquid Oxygenite is also used to craft:

Due to Liquid Oxygenite's explosive nature, the Syringe Gun should not be used to apply it as medicine.


When not breathing, Oxygen Low will increase by 1/s for characters that are unconscious, and so a single dose will be sufficient to keep the character alive. Note that because a character that is not breathing but is still conscious will gain Oxygen Low at 5/s, a single dose will not bring them back to consciousness.
At a rate of -1.65/s each, 3 doses will not quite be enough (-4.95/s), but 4 will be sufficient to keep a character conscious, even without an oxygen source.

Dying by Oxygen Low is relatively easy to avoid for the most part, though, and so Liquid Oxygenite is usually not necessary to be carried around for first-aid purposes. In general, better use may be found as a crafting ingredient or as a weapon.

Liquid Oxygenite does high Burn damage on impact. When loaded in a Syringe Gun, it can be used like a Grenade Launcher, and is capable of downing or killing most Creatures in one or two shots. Note that the projectile occasionally can - if it is travelling very slow - simply inject into the target instead of exploding.
