When entering a Desert during a Sandstorm, the player's Field of Vision will instantly be limited, disabling the ability to see anything but a small area around the character. Additionally, movement speed will be reduced by 60%. In order to avoid becoming blind to the Sandstorm, one must be equipped with Desert Goggles.
During rain, sandstorms will temporarily cease until after the ground is dry from the rain.
- Smoldering objects will be extinguished while the sandstorm is active, this can be used to the player's advantage. It will also prevent Wildfires this way.
