The Callisto Protocol is a sci-fi survival horror game where you will be attacked by mutated humans, so one of the very first things you should know is how to heal yourself. You play as Jacob Lee who has an implant at the back of his neck called a Core Device and that shows you his current HP level. It will start blinking red when you’re low on healing and about to die – and to fix that, here’s how to heal fast in The Callisto Protocol.
How to Heal in The Callisto Protocol (Healing Guide)
To heal Jacob, you have to use a Health Injector that you can find in wall-mounted boxes and as Health Gel loot drops from enemies you kill. Plus, you can also obtain Health Injectors from Loot crates.
Once you pick up the injection and use it (by pressing the Down button on the controller), Jacob will inject himself with it quickly. Apart from that, you can also use them from the Inventory Screen.
The healing animation takes around 4 seconds. Of course, this means he will be vulnerable to attacks by creatures, which is why you must do this while hiding or when you are not surrounded by enemies. As soon as the injector does its job, the health bar at the back of Jacob’s neck will fill up and turn a glowing green.
A good tip is to avoid using a health injector immediately after clearing out enemies in the area. That’s because there’s a chance that the enemy corpses may have Health Gel on them. Stomp on the creatures one last time to see if they were holding it.
Do keep an eye out for these healing devices, because if Jacob’s health drops to zero, then enemies will show him no kindness. To ensure that you don’t need these Health Injectors too often, dodge and evade your opponents at the right time, by moving your left stick. Since you will be one against many, you will have to plan out your next move quickly and predict the enemy’s movement to avoid getting hit.
And that’s how to heal yourself fast in The Callisto Protocol. If you are a completionist and wish to complete all the achievements in the game, check out The Callisto Protocol trophy guide and more in our game category here.
