Green Hell is one of the most interesting survival games I have played for a long time now. Although, with its unique dietary requirements making survival that much harder, we’ve put together the best Green Hell tips and tricks guide to keep you alive.
Surviving Green Hell
1. Be Careful what you eat
To start our Green Hell guide, it’s important to monitor what you eat.
The jungle is surprisingly filled with food. Some of it is good for you, some of it will make you sick, but some ‘food’ will actually drive you mad if you eat it.
Just think logically, would you really want to eat a giant spider or a rotten banana? No, me neither, and nor should you in Green Hell, or it won’t take long before you start losing your mind.

2. Don’t Sleep on the Ground
Next up in our Green Hell survival guide is where to sleep.
The jungle is full of nasties. While it might seem obvious that the ground isn’t the best place for a nap, sometimes you’ve just gotta sleep, but try and build a shelter first.
Sleeping on the ground in Green Hell increases the risk of having worms buried in your skin. These will burn through your sanity quickly, so make sure to hook them out as quickly as possible by crafting a bone needle.
3. New Items Unlock More Recipes
If you see something new in the jungle, make sure to pick it up. Everything new that goes into your inventory has the chance to help you unlock a new crafting recipe.
A great example of this is mud. I hadn’t personally thought to grab some mud from a river, but as soon as I did, I unlocked a ton of new building items to make a more secure base.
4. Use The Right Bandage
There are multiple ways to get hurt in Green Hell, and many of them will need their own remedies, as such, there are also multiple types of bandages you can create, each helping a certain type of wound.
- Normal Bandage: Used to treat normal, uninfected wounds
- Tobacco Dressing: Used to treat venom
- Honey Dressing: Helps with infected wounds
- Lily Dressing: Also helps with venom
If you have a good size base, try to keep some of these plants growing, that way you will be able to make the correct bandage whenever they are needed.
5. Build Multiple Camps
You see a lot of people asking where are the best base locations in Green Hell, and many of the responses will lead to people sharing their favorite spot.
But Green Hell is focused on exploration, so don’t settle for any single spot, explore the map, and make small outposts or even big bases everywhere, this will make exploration safer, as you can go further, but always have somewhere safe nearby.
6. Wash Before Eating
Washing before you eat food is a great way to make sure you don’t get sick in Green Hell. Eating while dirty can lead to parasites that can make surviving much harder.
Simply find fresh water, and wash yourself off before eating any food, it only takes seconds and can help make sure you stay healthy enough to survive another day.
