You can’t continue working on an empty stomach in The Survivalists. That’s why you’ll need to cook food from all the scraps you’ve found on the island. Here’s our cooking mini-guide to help you out.

The Survivalists: Campfire cooking guide
To start cooking in The Survivalists, you’ll first need to construct a Campfire via Blueprint Mode. This only requires 6x pebbles, but you do need 1x timber to stoke the fires.
Note: Once the fire has gone out, you get 1x charcoal that can be used to activate the Forge.
You can refer to the table below for the cooking recipes/ingredients:
Item Required Materials Monkey Meal (main; used to befriend monkey companions) 1x petals; 1x berries; 1x makeshift bowl Fruit Smoothie 2x berries; 2x coconuts; 1x palm leaf Stewed Berries 2x petals; 2x berries; 1x makeshift bowl Charred Fish 1x fillet; 1x palm leaf Sweet Fish 2x fillet; 2x fruit; 1x palm leaf Crispy Wings 3x bat wing; 1x palm leaf Meat Kebab 2x meat scrap or 1x meat chunk Fruity Kebab 1x meat chunk; 1x timber; 2x fruit Mango Curry 1x makeshift bowl; 2x coconut; 3x fruit Sweetened Meat 2x meat chunk; 3x berries; 1x palm leaf Sizzling Steak 2x steak; 2x berries; 1x palm leaf
It bears mentioning that the food you cook will have varying degrees of effectiveness. Some, such as the Fruit Smoothie and Crispy Wings, net you a lot of health. Others, such as Meat Kebabs, ever so slightly satiate your hunger.
All in all, the Campfire has decent options, but you might want to create a Cooking Pot later to have more stuff you can cook. The Cooking Pot is also used to create steaks and clean water (for Elixirs that protect you from harmful terrain).
That does it for our cooking mini-guide for The Survivalists. You can return to our main guide for the game’s crafting mechanics.
