Medkit not giving a full heal

conrudy24conrudy24 Member Posts: 10

I’ve had this happen on so many occasions since the new update. I’ll bring in a medkit with 16 or 32 charges and as it runs out, I’m left with a full progress bar of healing but still injured. I didn’t miss any skill checks, killer didn’t have the doctor perk to make it last less. It’s just not giving me a full heal.

    Noticed this as well, I had a yellow medkit with bandages + medical scissors but only got 1 heal out of it and didn't get the full second heal...

    I am noticing this aswell. 16 charges is always just short of a full heal.

    I am playing on Xbox Series X and since the update 16 charges isn't enough to get a full heal. Bar is full, medkit is depleted, but I'm still injured.

    Another survivor will come along and literally just touch me for a split second and I'm healed.

    Same. I played for the first time after the chapter release today, I was using yellow medkit with Bandages (8 extra charges) and Butterfly Tape (slightly increases healing speed). Fully depleted the medkit and it was not enough for the second heal, like it was 1 charge missing. It happened at least 5 times in different matches.

    Noticed. The bug 16+16 medkid = 31 heal is BACK.

    Just for sure... I healed myself without any great skillcheck or missed skillcheck. pure classic heal only.

    same situation for:

    brown medkid + 2 addons with 8 charges (=16+16=32=>2 heals)

    yellow medkid + 1 addon 8 charges (= 24+8=32)

    both situatios - 1 full heal and 98% heal

    Happened to me too

    Also happened to me. Used a yellow medkit with an 8 extra charges addon (24+8 = 32) and I could only heal once, it's like it had 31 charges instead of 32. If you don't get any great skillchecks you won't get healed fully.

    This happened to me with an Alex's Toolbox, which has 24 charges, enough to break 4 hooks, however, the fourth hook I went to break didn't finish. The bar appeared to fill completely but then the toolbox was depleted, despite having 6 charges left, and the hook did not break.

  • pushkinapushkina Member Posts: 121

    Happened for me too on ps 4

  • realflashbossrealflashboss Member Posts: 204

    Yup same on ps5. Brown medkits sometimes dont fullly heal by 1% or something

  • MandyTalkMandyTalk Administrator, Co-ordinator, BHVR Posts: 15,800

    We really need logs on this please, whilst I appreciate the comments showing how many people are affected by it - logs would be incredibly helpful.

  • jacindazsjacindazs Member Posts: 136

    I already sent it. Do you need more? Should I ask friends or today try simulate situation?

  • BenSanderson55BenSanderson55 Member Posts: 24

    Is there a way to give logs from ps4? I'm not aware of a way.

  • MandyTalkMandyTalk Administrator, Co-ordinator, BHVR Posts: 15,800
  • MandyTalkMandyTalk Administrator, Co-ordinator, BHVR Posts: 15,800

    yes please, it needs to be the last match played as well - so when you didn't get the heal correctly, the logs from that match.

  • jacindazsjacindazs Member Posts: 136

    ok, today we will try simulate situation. We should be 3 so we can use different medkits. I will upload logs ASAP

  • FairP1ayerFairP1ayer Member Posts: 483

    I also want to mention Green Medkits aren’t giving the increased healing speed bonuses for yourself or others. I didn’t see a fix in the patch notes so I’m assuming this was not fixed today.

  • jacindazsjacindazs Member Posts: 136


    Brown medkit founded in chest - 99% health state - Log attached

    (instead of this I tryed green with green addon and double heal was correct)

  • dontpanic503dontpanic503 Member Posts: 37

    Can't provide logs as I'm on Switch, but same thing here. Happened with a Yellow medkit + bandages and a Green medkit. Both times was left injured but with a full heal bar. Not every time, only started with mid-chapter patch.

  • Pony_BaloneyPony_Baloney Member Posts: 12

    Yup, this has happened to me multiple times with any items that have charges. Medkits and also toolboxes too. (Not getting the 4th sabotage with Alex’s toolbox).

  • jacindazsjacindazs Member Posts: 136

    Is it enough?

  • SheffieldSheffield Member Posts: 43

    Here the sme problem. 3x now 99% heal and Medkit is empty.

    1x Yellow Medkit with 24 charges + 8 with Add on

    2x Brown Medkit with 16 charges + no Add on

  • MandyTalkMandyTalk Administrator, Co-ordinator, BHVR Posts: 15,800

    @jacindazs thank you so much for doing that, I really do appreciate it - I will get those to the team <3
