The Booster Shot is a craftable Survival item only available in Don't Starve Together. It requires 8 Rot, 2 Nitre, and 1 Stinger to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype.

It can restore maximum Health lost through the usage of Telltale Hearts and Florid Posterns. It will not increase one's maximum Health past the default.

  • The item restores missing maximum health, without modifing actual health.
  • Always adds 25% of the base character's health value to the current maximum health value, except if this latter is already at its base value, resulting no change.
  • Can be consumed with character maximum health equal its base value, effectively wasting the item.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Prior to March 8th, 2016 update, the crafting recipe for the Booster Shot required 3 Papyrus, 2 Healing Salves, and one Stinger.
  • The booster shot is used for medicine to upgrade the body's immune system to fight a virus that may come later in life if not given the booster shot. However, in Don't Starve Together, the booster shot is used after the character has been affected by maximum health penalties.
  • Having Rot as an ingredient refers to Penicillin, an anti-biotic derived from mold.
