Where to Find Meds (Locations)

Players can find containers of Pills in caves, in the plane, in random boxes, crates, enemy camps, on the beach, and anywhere else. This will be time-consuming (and based on luck) and if you don’t have meds with you when you are in dire need of them, you will die. So it’s best to craft medicine and keep it with you at all times.

Can you Store Medicine?

Thankfully, you can! These herbs can be hard to find in the off-season (like winter) so when your in-game season is in Spring, Summer and even Autumn, stock up on them, combine and craft them and then store them in Cabinets, small or large.

How to Use Virginia for Healing?

What you can do is befriend and get Virginia, your companion, and give her the weapon. She can take down enemies who can do the dirty work for you, while you scavenge for meds and other crucial items.

What Happens when you Consume Meds?

When you take meds in-game, your health will be restored completely. This will be especially useful if you’ve been attacked by an enemy and need a quick fix. If you are in a safe area, it’s best to restore health by eating food.

How to Ensure your Health stays Full?

  • Wear Armor, it will protect you from damage.
  • Keep quenching your thirst and hunger – drink water, eat snacks, and make the most of the animal meat.
  • Rest on a bench to restore energy.
  • Create shelter and sleep to regain energy.
  • Craft weapons to protect yourself from hostile animals and enemies/mutants.
  • Keep a good stock of meds in your inventory.
