The Gas Mask is a gear piece in Grounded that helps keep us safe from poison mist spread throughout the map. There are whole sections filled with poison and can not be entered until crafted and equipped.
There are many dangers lurking around the corner. Some insects also spew out poisonous gases from their body. So even if you are not exploring the far edges of the map, You should still take this face mask for your travels.
Using the Gas Mask provides protection from poison in the air. It uses the nose of another animal to filter the oxygen before we breathe it in. It will not save you from venomous creatures that hit you directly.
You should only use this mask if you are exploring new areas and don't want to worry about the green clouds. It is important to note that it provides no physical defense.
Only one piece of gear can be worn on each body part at a time. This will take the slot for your head. Meaning we have to sacrifice Physical Defense, Hauling Capacity, or Health bonuses we could be getting from another piece of armor.
