Harsh weather conditions are one of the hazards in Outward. Your character can die not only in battle but also due to low body temperature. During the game, you will inevitably encounter wintery conditions - either in single locations or throughout entire lands. The effects of cold weather appear gradually, as the temperature goes down. In the beginning, stamina will recover more slowly, but over time, the health of the character begins to decrease, which can eventually lead to death. On this site, you will learn how to heat the character and cope with the cold in Outward.

Standing by a bonfire
The easiest way of warming up and tackling the cold is staying near a bonfire. The temperature of the character will start to rise rapidly and the negative effects of the cold will be reduced. It does not matter whether you create a fire yourself or use an existing one. You can often find bonfires at bandit camps, for example.
How to create a bonfire yourself?
You can also create a bonfire yourself. First, you need wood - to do this, go to any tree and hold down the appropriate key. You will get three pieces of wood (just enough to create fire).
Then open the crafting menu, find the Campfire Kit and create it. The item will appear in your inventory.
In the inventory, select the Campfire Kit, place the bonfire on the ground, and light it up. Now, standing near the fire, your character's temperature will rise. Remember that you can place the Bedroll next to the fire, and thus protect yourself from the cold during sleep.
Clothing and items that protect from the cold
If you are in an area covered with snow, it is necessary to avoid a decrease in the body temperature of the character. To do this, you must use clothes with a high coefficient of Cold Weather Defense - the higher the level, the more protection from the cold the given piece of clothing provides. This will allow you to delay or even prevent the character from getting dangerously cold. If the clothes are not enough, you can use edible insects called Ochre Spice Beetle, which provide temporary protection from the cold after being eaten - they can be obtained by collecting various types of plants and fruits.
