The Potion of Frost is a versatile potion.

Its class name in save files is "com.​watabou.​pixeldungeon.​items.​potions.​PotionOfFrost".


Potion of Frost
Upon exposure to open air, this chemical will evaporate into a freezing cloud, causing any creature that contacts it[sic] to be frozen in place, unable to act and move.


The Potion of Frost can be found randomly at regular depths (not at Boss depths), and in Shops, or as a random drop from Dwarf warlock or brewed through alchemy.

When drank

The Frozen debuff is applied to the Hero/ine and to enemies around him/her, for a duration of 5 turns.
It also extinguishes fire (Burning debuff) in its area-of-effect.

When thrown

The Frozen debuff is applied to enemies around the shatter point (and to the Hero/ine if s/he is too close to it), for a duration of 5 turns.
It also extinguishes fire (Burning debuff) in its area-of-effect.


Throwing a potion of Frost


  • Use on all Mystery Meat, to turn them into Frozen Carpaccio.
  • Use against Fire Elementals, to inflict Frost damage {triangular range: 1 — depth(totalHealth×2/3) }.
  • Drinking this potion also seems to prevent the Hero/ine from receiving the Paralyzed debuff (from the Paralytic Gas blob), for a much longer duration than the Potion of Purification. (However, it is uncertain whether this is intended, or an exploit.)
  • Potions of Frost are good to use in boss battles; it can freeze the boss to help you get extra hits on it, or to use items that heal you, if you are weak.
