First Aid Kits
First Aid Kits are found throughout various places along the map, generally on counters or walls.
First Aid heals for 60 HP over 60 seconds – 5 seconds to apply.
They can’t be stacked upon each other nor refreshed until the kit healing falls completely.
You can use a first aid kit while you have have one active to stop all current bleeding but it will not refresh the time of the active first aid kit.
They can be stacked with bandages to increase your healing per second.
The latest you can use a first aid kit is 7% HP with Severe Bleeding.
Bandages are crafted by combining two scraps of cloth in the crafting menu. Scraps of cloth are created by shredding shirts, pants, backpacks, gloves, bandanas, belt pouches, waist packs and hats.
The most effective thing to shred for cloth are shirts – You get 4 scraps of cloth for a 50 bulk item.
Bandages heal for 10 hp over 10 seconds – 3 seconds to apply.
Multiple Bandages can be used in succession to increase your healing per second.
Bandages can be used in combination with First Aid Kits for maximum healing.
The latest you can use a bandage to save you is at 4% HP with Severe bleeding
Bandages and First Aid Kits can be used to create and item called Procoagulant in the Crafting Menu.
The recipe requires 10 bandages and 1 First Aid Kit and will yield 1 procoagulant
Procoagulants can be used to stop ALL forms of bleeding instantly – can be used while moving and driving!
Very effective to use these while being chased by a car or if you get shot while a First Aid Kit is active.
Note: It’s always more effective to use a bandage before using a first aid kit. The bandage will provide healing while you’re applying your first aid kit and save some health.
You can use your first aid kit while looting to save yourself time and health.
There are 4 stages of bleeding: Minor – Moderate – Severe – Critical rated from lowest to highest severity
All forms of bleeding can be stopped with 1 First Aid Kit or 1 Procoagulant. Alternatively, bleeding can be stopped from using bandages depending on the severity.
