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:Check Out A List Of All Perks Here
Don't Forget To Upgrade Them
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.Check Out How To Level Up Perks & Mutations Here
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.
Best Perks By Situation
※ Note that we are still investigating the exact effects of some perks. As such, this may contain some info based on our assumptions. We will update this section as we find out more!
Best Combat Perks
|Perk||Fresh Defense||Coup De Grass||Meat Shield|
|Effect||↑ Defense Up||↑ Luck Up||↑ Max Health Up|
For combat situations, you'll no doubt want to have Fresh Defense to boost your overall tankiness. Meat Shield will also let you sustain more damage if you end up eating a hit. Coup De Grass is there to provide you with some extra luck for critical strikes.
Best Exploration Perks
|Perk||Natural Explorer||Juicy||Buff Lungs|
|Effect||↑ Run speed up||Hunger/thirst take longer to drain||↑ Max Stamina Up|
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.
Best Building Perks
|Perk||Grass Master||Buff Lungs||Cardio Fan|
|Effect||Harvest grass faster||↑ Max Stamina Up||Reduces stamina depletion|
You'll be needing a metric ton of Grass Planks if you want to do any major construction, so Grass Master is highly recommended. The remaining two perks are here to reduce your downtime while cutting down grass.
