“A roll of non-sterile gauze bandage. Can be used to directly stop the bleeding, but can also be used other ways. — In-game description
Bandages are used to stop bleeding which may result when a player is injured. They spawn almost anywhere that there may be loot, typically found inside of a First Aid Kit. Failure to stop bleeding will result in increasingly hazardous effects which will lead to unconsciousness and eventually death.
Application[edit | edit source]
Before using a bandage, an injured player must first determine if they are bleeding or not. This is indicated by a "Bleeding" message in the inventory screen and as a stream of blood gushing from a player. A low level of blood is shown by a general desaturation of a player's screen color.
Bandaging Yourself[edit | edit source]
A player may use a bandage either on themselves or on another player. Before applying a bandage, it is recommended to clear the area of threats or allow for enough time to administer a bandage safely -- for obvious reasons. To apply a bandage to yourself: open the inventory screen, right-click on a bandage, and select "Use" from the menu that appears. Alternatively, you can place the bandage in one of your hotbar slots, equip the item to your hand using the assigned key, and then select "Use."
Bandaging takes approximately ten seconds, during which the player is vulnerable to attack and cannot move without "breaking" the animation which means having to start all over again.
Bandaging Others[edit | edit source]
To bandage another player, one must be within range for the context option "Apply Bandage" to appear when using the context menu. To bandage someone else, the bandage must be placed in the hand slot.
Crafting[edit | edit source]
you can also put bandagings in fire-barrel for kindling or putting into a trouch.
