LifeAfter Food Recipes List: A Complete Guide to Food Recipes

As you are probably aware by now, LifeAfter is the recently released zombie survival game from NetEase, which is the same company behind popular mobile titles such as Rules of Survival, Survivor Royale, and Crusaders of Light. The game, which is available for iOS and Android devices alike, puts you as one of the survivors after a devastating virus plagues the entire world, resulting in hordes of zombies, or as the game calls them, “Infected” Creatures and other monsters. We have already published a LifeAfter beginner’s guide, to help out players who are starting out with some neat tips and tricks.

Of course, the cards will be stacked against you at first, as you’ll have your health intact but your stomach growling in hunger and your fists being your only form of defense against the Infected. How long can you survive in the wilderness, and how well could you prepare yourself through proper base management, diligent crafting and recipe preparation, and the creation of weapons to defend yourself against these undead creatures?

You will notice that we mentioned “recipe preparation” above, and that’s exactly what we shall be focusing on in this LifeAfter strategy guide. There are so many food recipes which you can prepare using a variety of ingredients and ingredient combinations, and each of them have their own specific benefits. Read on and find out how to “craft” these recipes and improve your chances of making it in this post-apocalyptic world!

Introduction To LifeAfter Food Recipes

lifeafter hunger

When it comes to food, there are several places where you can find the required ingredients to cook up a new recipe. For starters, you can gather fruit, for instance, while exploring, and the same applies to meat, which will come from the animals that you are able to successfully kill while out there in the wild. Meanwhile, there are other ingredients which you could purchase from the game’s non-playing characters.

Yes, it can be quite a challenge satisfying your hunger in the early stages of the game. But if you’re patient enough, if you properly store the resources you collected, and if you spend your in-game currency wisely, it wouldn’t be too hard at the end of the day to ensure that you never go hungry. Take note that some recipes have different effects than others — some may be able to allay your hunger, while others could keep you warm by increasing your body temperature, for instance. Also, bear in mind that these recipes need to be cooked in order for you to consume them and take advantage of their benefits. That means finding a Petrol Barrel like the one near your Development Zone, though in most cases, you obviously don’t want to be cooking in the darkness of night, when there are lots of zombies, er…Infected prowling the area.

With that said, let’s take a look at most, if not all of the recipes you can cook up while playing LifeAfter.

Recipes For Allaying Hunger / Restoring Fullness

When exploring in LifeAfter, it’s important that you don’t ignore that growling sound coming from your stomach — believe us, you would indeed be able to hear it, aside from seeing your Fullness bar at low levels. Not only will hunger impact your ability to chop down trees, dig for stone, fight off Impacted, etc. — you will also notice your HP dropping as your Fullness drops down to dangerously low levels. These recipes are designed to allay your hunger (completely restoring Fullness) or incrementally restoring said Fullness stat, so make sure you can cook a few of these before heading out for some wood-chopping, Infected-fighting, or any other tasks that could deplete your Fullness.

Recipes For Health / HP Restoration

Of course, allaying your hunger is just part of the equation when talking about survival in LifeAfter. You also have your HP to take into consideration, and anyone who’s been playing for some time should know that attacks from Infected, especially hordes of Infected, could significantly dent your HP. Health, on the other hand, gets affected when you are exposed to the rain and catch a cold, or possibly catch some other virus. And when Health goes down, your other stats could gradually go down as well.

In the event you fall sick or lose a lot of HP in the in-game world, these recipes should serve as the ideal pick-me-up, while also improving a stat or two on top of those benefits.

Recipes For Increasing Damage

When fighting the Infected, you can only do so much with your weapons. Some of the Infected could have higher levels than others, and some types, of course, are harder to defeat than others. (Special Infected and Humanoid Monsters, for example.) Need some help with that? LifeAfter has several recipes that have the effect of increasing the damage inflicted on Infected Creatures, Humanoid Monsters, and even Buildings and wild animals. Let’s take a look at these recipes and what they specifically do when you consume them.

Recipes For Boosting Speed

For the most part, the Infected are slow-moving creatures that, on the outset, look easy to outrun. But you should know that they could be deceptively fast at times, and could end up catching up with you if you aren’t careful. To this end, you’ll need a boost to your Movement Speed, and this game does have its share of recipes that are specifically designed to help you get that much-needed increase in speed to help you evade the Infected.

Additionally, you’ll need to dig quickly as the sun prepares to set, because we all know that night time is the right time for the Infected to attack. We’ve also included the known recipes that could increase your Digging Speed and help you wrap up faster so you could return to the safety of your base before the Infected strike. There’s even one recipe that could increase your Crit Chance, though we’re going to be dealing with that stat in greater detail later on in this LifeAfter guide.
