Stamina represents the player's ability to undertake several physically demanding tasks. Sprinting or rope climbing both reduce stamina. When the stamina bar is completely drained, rope climbing becomes slower and more dangerous, and the player is unable to sprint. The stamina bar will gradually refill itself when not in active use.
The amount of stamina that the player has is set and cannot be increased through leveling skills. The current maximum stamina can be viewed by navigating to the Clothing screen within the game menu.
Fatigue affects the replenishment of stamina. When the character reaches Exhausted (empty fatigue bar), the stamina bar is completely drained. It will remain drained for as long as the fatigue bar remains empty.
Different types of clothing have a different mobility penalty attached to them. When wearing clothing with a higher mobility penalty, the player's stamina bar will have a lower maximum capacity.

Stamina is used primarily for two activities: sprinting and rope climbing.
- "Walking through the snow with a heavy pack can get tiring, but sometimes you just have to run. Escape wildlife, avoid weak ice, or get to shelter faster by Sprinting. Keep in mind that Sprinting uses up more Calories than Walking, and your Sprint stamina is limited by how restrictive your Clothing is. It takes you a little while to recover Sprint stamina, so use it wisely!"
- — In-game description
Sprint is a gameplay mechanic that enables the player to move faster than usual. When active the player can run twice as fast as walking speed. Sprint can be used for evasion, avoiding weak ice, or simply moving quickly to another location
Rope climbing Edit
- Main article: Rope climbing
Climbing a rope is one of the most strenuous activities in-game. Rest and stamina are drained as one climbs. When stamina reaches zero, the climbing rate slows significantly and there is an ever increasing chance to slip and fall. How fast one climbs is significantly impacted by current rest level. Having a full rest bar will make for an easy, quick climb. An empty rest bar will mean a slow climb; so slow that it may be impossible to complete before draining all stamina and then slipping and eventually falling off.
Stamina for climbing is not affected by clothing worn. It is not wise to sprint towards a rope you expect to climb.
