Visual & Audio Effects
  • Without talents/genes, it takes 25 seconds for a character to fall unconscious from not breathing, then a further 75 seconds to suffocate to death.
    • Tiger Thresher Genes and a variety of talents can increase this time, allowing characters to be in low-oxygen environments for longer.
  • Some effects give full immunity to Oxygen Low, including Pressure Stabilized, Husk Infection, and 100% Tiger Thresher Genes, allowing characters to neglect using Oxygen Tanks entirely. Note that these effects do not disable the audio warning that diving suits emit while empty.
