In-game description

Military-Grade MRE is a food item in The Long Dark.

The MRE is very rare, and is most commonly found in safes. It can occasionally be found in locked lockers and extremely rarely as a random spawn. It is not uncommon for only one to three to be found per region.

An MRE will restore a whopping 1750 calories, making it the most efficient calories per unit of any food item in the game.

"MRE" stands for "Meal Ready to Eat". As suggested by the name, MREs can be eaten as-is, without heating. They are used by militaries to feed their troops during combat, and in northern climates can last three to five years, depending on storage temperature.

Trivia Edit

  • The Canadian Military does supply its deployed members with MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) which are typically American made, but more often it uses IMP (Individual Meal Pack) which is the exclusive field ration of the Canadian Forces.
