This article is an overview of all Med-Kits featured in Dead by Daylight.
For other uses, see Med-Kit (disambiguation).

Med-Kits are a type of Item IconHelp items.png Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png can use in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.


Med-Kits are used to unlock the self-heal action at the regular Healing speed or to heal other Survivors at vastly greater Healing speeds.

The sole exception is the Emergency Med-Kit FulliconItems emergencyMed-Kit.png, which will also increase the Self-Healing speed.

It should be noted that Med-Kits cannot be used to heal one's self from the Dying State IconHelp dying.png, as it prevents the use of any Items IconHelp items.png.
