|~ In-game description|
The Canteen is a portable source of drinking water that survivors can use to replenish their thirst.
- Can be emptied of their contents by holding in hand and looking towards the ground.
- Can be refilled at Water Pumps for fresh water or any source of muddy waters like rivers, streams, and ponds. They will not work close to shoreline seawater.
- Can hold Gasoline when filled up at Fuel Pumps at Gas Stations. The Canteen must be emptied of Water before Gasoline can be added.
- Can be attached to a Belt and carried in the waist slot.
It is important to mention that spawned Canteens have a 50/50 chance to infect a player with Cholera. It is always recommended to use Chlorine Tablets to purify before first consumption of the spawned liquid OR empty the Canteen out and refill entirely from a Water Pump to be safe.
The canteen in DayZ appears to be based off of the Rothco 3 piece canteen.
