- — In-game description
Antibiotics are the only item that can treat an infection. They can be found in almost all lootpiles, such as hospitals, residentials and farm loot, but are considerably rare.
A player has a chance of getting infected when hit by a Zombie, or when near an already infected Player who has reached the stage of spreading their infection (Sepsis).
An infected player continuously loses blood at a rate of 3 blood per second. If left untreated, players can die from an infection.
