Best Perks (Mutations) Explanation

Can Be Swapped Out Freely

There are (currently) a total of 13 different perks available in Grounded, but you can only equip 3 simultaneously! The good news here is that you can freely swap between perks without penalty, so you do not have to always use the same 3 all the time. However, it's still important to know which perks are best for what situations.

Before continuing, you'll want to get yourself acquainted with all the existing perks and their effects. Check out the link below for our Perk list:

Don't Forget To Upgrade Them

Not All Perks Can Be Leveled Up

Whatever perks you end up choosing, you will want to make sure that they've been upgraded to their maximum level! Not all perks can be leveled up, so you'll also want to be aware of that. You can check the number of stars a perk has to see if it can be leveled up.

Recommended To Have Several "Loadouts"

There will no doubt be certain perks that are more useful for specific situations. This is why we highly recommend you get in the habit of changing out your perks depending on what you're doing.

For exploration, you'll want to be able to run as fast as you can, as long as you can. Natural Explorer and Buff Lungs will be perfect for this. Juicy is here simply to reduce the amount of food/water you need to take in while exploring.
