A Venom Gland is a healing item from the Shipwrecked DLC. It is used for crafting items such as the Anti Venom, as well as poisoned weapons. Venom Glands can also be directly consumed to cure the poison effect. Consuming a Venom Gland to cure poison deals up to 75 poison damage, however this damage will not kill the player character. If the player character has less than 80 health left, Venom Gland will only deal enough damage, if at all, to reduce the remaining health to a minimum of 5. Consuming the Venom Gland while having less than 5 health will not increase the health.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • One of the safest and most efficient ways to farm Venom Glands is by luring Sea Hounds into a group of Stink Rays and then leaving. The Sea Hounds will kill most, if not all, of the Stink Rays, and when the player returns, they will find multiple Venom Glands floating in the ocean. This method removes the chance of being poisoned while fighting venomous creatures, and gives the player multiple glands that can be kept on hand for crafting Anti Venom.
  • Poisonous Holes can be dug up with a Shovel for a 50% chance at Venom Glands. If timed correctly (immediately after the poison cloud animation) the player can dig up the hole without getting poisoned. This also permanently removes the Poisonous Hole.
