In Project Zomboid, queasy feelings appear when the sickness level is between 25% and 49%, increasing body temperature generation.

When your body temperature is high, it leads to a faster thirst and fatigue rate. Worse, a higher body temperature reduces attack speed.

That being said, queasiness has consequences, so you should eliminate it as soon as possible.

Smoking – one of the reasons causing queasiness in Project Zomboid.

Queasiness is the first stage of being sick. Therefore, all causes that lead to sickness are similar to queasiness. We’ll list some valuable details for each cause, as shown below:

  • Eating raw/bad food: Eating rotten vegetables or uncooked food (meat, poultry, etc.) leads to queasiness. Specifically, it takes approximately 1,5 hours (in-game time) to reach 25% of sickness.
  • Drinking tainted water: Tainted water from lakes, rivers, or ponds causes queasiness after 50 minutes.
  • Staying near many rotting corpses: the closer you stay near the corpses, the faster you suffer from queasiness.
  • Being infected by the zombies: You’ll absolutely get queasy after being infected by the undead. And undoubtedly, there’s no cure in this case.
  • Smoking: Although cigarettes reduce stress, two of them cause 26% of sickness, which puts you in the queasy stage.
  • Being wet: Staying outside when it’s raining for too long may become queasy as a result.

Generally, avoiding being in these circumstances is advisable to eliminate queasiness.
