So far, this is the only consumable I’ve found to cure you of these two ailments. As soon as you take that terrible fall, you’ll notice a red debuff show up on the bottom left corner of your screen. Here’s what both give you:

  • Broken Leg: Unable to jump or sprint.

Since losing these abilities can be devastating in a bad situation, you want to heal yourself fast with a Healing Salve. This is the first consumable you learn to craft in Nightingale, and it’ll instantly cure you of these two ailments.

Crafting a Healing Salve in Nightingale requires a Campfire, Bones, and Fiber. You can get Bones by killing predators and prey, and Fiber comes from the various flora and weeds around your biome. Once you have one of each, ignite your Campfire and craft a Healing Salve.

Hold it, then press the “F” key to eat it, which will get rid of your debuffs. It’s one of those items that you should always have on you for situations like this. This is because you cannot consume a health potion to cure a Sprained Ankle or Broken Leg.

Although there may be other health items further into Nightingale once you level up, so far the Healing Salve is the best and only item for curing an injured leg. Speaking of injuries, you should learn how Heartshots work in Nightingale.
