I have recently started playing Encased RPG, and I have to admit that I absolutely love the game. It’s the perfect combination between the classic Fallout and Divinity: Original Sin 2. Amazing.
One of the things that I am not particularly fond of is the fatigue system. While hunger and thirst are easily manageable and rarely a problem, fatigue is killing me slowly. I hate it.
But fortunately, there are very simple ways to reduce fatigue no matter where you are – even if there’s no bed around you. And today we’re going to talk about all options that you have to reduce fatigue.
Encased RPG: How to reduce fatigue.
You’ll see that once you’re aware of all the possible ways to remove it (some very easy, but not explicitly presented in the game), things will be a lot easier.
1. Sleep in a bed/cot
This is the most obvious one. Sleeping in a bed/army cot or anything that allows you to sleep in is the easiest way to reduce fatigue.
Effects might vary depending on various factors, but you lose about 100 fatigue per hour of sleep.
It’s easy to test this: simply go to sleep for an hour, see how much fatigue was reduced and then decide how long you have to sleep until you get to zero. There will be no penalty if you sleep a few times in a row.
However, the biggest problem with beds is that they’re not readily available everywhere.
Plus, if you’re in the middle of a battle and your character is extremely tired, you can’t just take a nap, right? Fortunately, there are other items that can help you reduce fatigue.
2. Various caffeinated drinks
I am talking here about a glass of coffee, a can of cherry-flavored Soda (or whatever its name is)…
These don’t say in the description that they reduce fatigue, but they do. And they do so by quite a lot – so make sure to always have a few Soda Cans around (you can get them from most Vending machines throughout the game) or Coffees.
Once you have a stock of these and you take advantage of any bed that you can see, you can set up a system and never have to worry about fatigue in Encased again.
This is an item similar to coffee and Soda, but it’s a lot more difficult to get your hands on it. If you do have it, wait until your fatigue is really high and use it in order to get the most out of it.
But honestly, you can easily handle fatigue with a few cans of soda and sleeping…
Dealing with fatigue in Encased is only difficult early on in the game (until you’re done in Nashville). Later on, you should have no problem with it as long as you get a system in place.
I personally do it like this: I always have on me at least 3-4 cans of Soda (easier to get than Coffee), but I try to use them only if really necessary. You never know when a bed pops up…
These are more common in cities/settlements, but most areas in the game have a bed somewhere… so take advantage of it whenever you’re near. Even if your fatigue is relatively low, take a nap to get it to zero as you never know when you might find a bed again.
And this would be all about dealing with fatigue in the game. If you have other methods to get it done, let us all know by sharing your comments below.
