The Great Lake is a unique location found in the Swamp biome. It's one of the largest areas in the game, if not the largest one. It operates on its own independent weather system - a continual rainstorm that mutes all sunlight into a cloudy darkness, heavily obscuring vision. It can be hard to navigate the area, however flashes of lightning will occasionally illuminate a portion of the screen.
In the center of the storm is a house with a locked door - it can be lockpicked - which has various items including a pair of Rubber Boots. A large snout-like protrusion on the ground can also be found nearby. If it is attacked, it shrivels up and the storm ends, allowing the Protagonist to freely navigate the area.
- Bring strong light sources to navigate the darkness, and to burn off the Black Substance. The Lantern offers a passive light source and Flares offers a brighter light. Both kinds of flashlights will wake up sleeping Red Chompers covered in the Black Substance.
- Any kind of loud noise (running, shooting) will wake up sleeping Red Chompers. Plan accordingly.
- Keep a watch on you; while in the storm it's hard to tell the time, making it possible to get lost in the area during nightfall.
- It will wake up four nearby Red Chompers if you kill The Snout first.
- Bring a hefty weapon to deal with the multitude of aggressive creatures. Due to the reduced visibility, any shotgun is a good choice. Or the player could use an Axe and silently kill all of them.
- This location used to be called the "Huge Lake".
