Stamina is one of the major player statistics in 7 Days to Die. Keeping stamina high, a player does more damage, has a greater chance to interrupt an attacking zombie, and is closely tied with wellness. Players can view how much of their stamina remains by looking at the blue bar in the bottom left of their screen.
Too little stamina results in a diminished capacity to run, use tools, and use weapons.
Stamina decreases when performing certain actions and when a player character is affected by certain conditions.
Stamina passively increases so long as a character's wellness remains above their stamina. Simple actions such as walking and sitting help with this; the greatest effect comes from using consumables.
