Rotten meat is created when any meat, such as Animal Meat, Cooked Meat, Fish Meat, or Cooked Fish, spoils in an inventory. Rotten meat does supply the player with some food satisfaction but decreases their health slightly with no vitamin benefit.
Currently, there are only two uses for Rotten Meat:
- Used as food for the tamed Vulture or crab
- or as a secondary is to potentially kill the player by ingesting semi-large quantities of it. Although it will sate the players hunger very slightly, the overall gain versus the HP loss would not be beneficial in most circumstances.
