Part specific status effects[edit | edit source]

Char head chest.png


  • Destroyed: Instant death. As it turns out, taking a high powered bullet to the noggin' isn't conducive to your good health. Note that bleeding into the destroyed state does not result in instant death, but any further damage will.

Right arm
  • Fractured: Using items and searching containers is 50% slower than normal speed. Reloading, drawing, and aiming weapons takes 67% more time.
  • Destroyed: Same as above, but additional damage taken will be distributed over the entire body's health pool at 0.7x the damage dealt.

Destroyed parts healing[edit | edit source]

Destroyed body parts (except head and thorax) can be restored thanks to the CMS kit or the Surv12 field surgical kit, surgical kits restore a destroyed part to 1 HP; so their use needs to be combined with medkits to be effective. Destroyed parts that are restored with a surgical kit only have 45% to 60% (CMS) or 80 to 90% (Surv12) of their max HP for the duration of the raid unless surgery is performed again on that body part, lowering it further.

Off-Raid Healing[edit | edit source]

When outside of a raid you will passively gain health, hydration, and energy. You can use Medical items to heal and Provisions to consume as if you were in a raid. To start you gain 8 HP/Min, 1 Energy/Min, and 1 Hydration/Min. Your passive gaining of stats can be increased through upgrading Hideout modules such as the Medstation to increase health regeneration, Heating to increase energy regeneration, and Water Collector to increase Hydration recovery.

Therapist also provides healing to your character for a price after either dying or surviving with lost HP. This costs 21₽/HP and is cheaper than most medkits. A bleed costs 750₽ to heal and a fracture costs 1,000₽, again cheaper than the items required.

With fixed prices, the best value medical item is the Grizzly First Aid Kit.

First Aid Kit Current Price (₽) Health Points ₽ per HP (rounded up)
Grizzly First Aid Kit 22,741 1,800 13
Car first aid kit 5,361 220 25
Salewa FIRST AID KIT 13,645 400 35
AI-2 medikit 3,510 100 36
IFAK personal tactical first aid kit 11,298 300 38

Death[edit | edit source]

After dying in a raid or going MIA you will be brought back to the main menu. Your health will be set to 30% and will passively be regained over time. If you die to suicide, team members, disconnecting, or without a firearm equipped your health will instead be set to 1%.
