How to heal in Dead Island 2

Healing in Dead Island 2 is an incredibly straightforward process to master. Even in the heat of battle, it's very easy to restore health and avoid the swinging arm of a Crusher. With that said, here's what you need to do.

Find Protein Bars and Energy Drinks

For a quick boost of health, Hell-A contains a huge number of energy drinks and protein bars that partially fill your health bar. Although one energy drink or a single protein bar doesn't fill the bar fully, it's usually enough to retreat into cover to use a Med Kit.

Using Med Kits

Just like protein bars and energy drinks, you can find Med Kits all over the place. Additionally, you can also craft them using materials at a crafting bench. To use a Med Kit, simply press down on the D-pad if you're using a controller or whichever key you've bound it to on the keyboard.

What makes Med Kits more valuable than a protein bar or an energy drink is that they fully restore your health. Choose to use them in situations where another hit will send you to the other side for maximum effectiveness or use one where there's no sign of any food and drink lying around.

There you have it, that's how to heal in Dead Island 2. For more, take a look at our guides showcasing workbench locations and how to level up fast.
