You can also craft medkits if you’re out of health supplies. To do this, open up the pause menu, and navigate to the inventory tab. Scroll down until you see the medkits icon. Craft them by holding down the action button on your platform of choice.

You’ll need three items to craft them. The first is the blue Bougainvillea plant, which can be found near lakes and rivers. Next, the yellow Cistanche plant is found in caves and by roadsides. Finally, you need a piece of meat. Once you have one of each item, you can craft health packs.

You can increase the strength of your medkits, which will give you better bang for your buck, so to speak. To do this, you need to keep an eye on your Healing Garden in your homebase of Prosperity. You can improve this area by using ethanol and this will give you better medkits. Ethanol can be picked up across the map too, so keep an eye out for supplies.

You can also upgrade how many health packs you can carry at any one time. You do this by purchasing the “More Medkits” perk on your upgrade tree. This will set you back three perk points, so tally them up until you have enough.
