Swimming through shipwrecks gives you poisoning sometimes and I think it’s the coral doing that but I don’t think it should. Let me know if this is not enough detail.

Stray lion fish maybe?

Things that cab poison you are

Sea Snake
Lion Fish
Crown of Thorns

Hi Videogamer672, welcome to the forums,

I’m sorry to hear you’ve experienced issues with poisoning.

As Lothaer pointed out above, there are a number of things that can poison your character in Stranded Deep. And some may have perhaps clipped the ship in question.

Did you notice any of the creatures Lothaer mentioned above after you were poisoned? I’ve personally been hit by poison a number of times when swimming by creatures I didn’t know were there until after the fact.

Crown of Thorns has also been reported by players as clipping through part of the terrain so they are well hidden from view.

Thanks for the reply, but I don’t always see what I was poisoned by. I think you’re right about the crown of thorns or maybe the urchins glitched in the terrain and the coral. I sometimes swim inside the coral but I don’t see anything. Do lionfish and sea snakes clip through structures?

Hi Videogamer672,

I’m sorry for my delay in replying to you.

Players reported in previous versions that some creatures could clip through the ships. However I believe the team issued a fix for this in a previous version. If you do notice any fish clipping through ships, please let me know. However if you did not notice them in the ship with you, I would suspect it was a crown of thorns or similar that cause the poisoning.
