Hunger is a game mechanic in Apocalypse Rising. In Apocalypse Rising, hunger is displayed as a green resource bar at the bottom of the screen. As time passes, the bar will slowly deplete. Hunger depletes slightly slower than thirst. To replenish the hunger bar, one must find food in the game, which can be commonly found nearly anywhere. If the hunger bar is completely depleted, starvation will occur, and your player's health bar will slowly start to deplete, resulting in death. While starving, bloodbags can be used, but they will do nothing. Painkillers will not slow the health loss.
