- "A bottle of water that has been filtered and can be consumed."
- — In-game description
The Water Bottle, sometimes called a 'Canteen,' is a reusable item in DayZ that fully replenishes thirst.
Drinking from a Water Bottle will completely replenish thirst and will add an Empty Water Bottle to the player's inventory which can then be refilled at a Pond, Lake, Water Pump or any source of Fresh Water. Water Bottles cannot be refilled from the sea, as sea water is not potable.
The Water Bottle takes up one inventory space, in the main inventory or the Backpack.
It is recommended that the player has at least one full Water Bottle in their inventory or backpack at any given time. It is also recommended that they have a Soda Can, or an Empty Tin or Empty Soda Can to use to boil the water in the Water Bottle using a Fireplace, so to prevent possible infection.
- A recent update to DayZ allows infection via Water Bottles, raw meat and Blood Bags. Raw Meat can be cooked to prevent infection, and the water in Water Bottles can be boiled.
