Needs must be satisfied to maintain survival. Failure to meet needs will drain condition, weakening the player all the way to the point of death if not properly handled.

Four major needs exist, referenced on the status overlay as four white bars. Satisfaction of a need fills its respective bar. Arrows within the bar indicate the direction and severity of progression; the more arrows in one direction, the faster the movement is.

As needs deteriorate past hash tags on their bar, they change their description to the right of the bar. This change is also noticeable by a brief display of the corresponding icon on the main HUD in the bottom left corner. When a need has emptied its icon turns red and remains on the screen.
