Trivia

  • During development, Second Wind was originally called Push Through It.
  • Although VigilIconPerks vigilIconPerks vigilIconPerks vigil will remove the Broken Status Effect faster than the default timer, it does not affect the speed of the self-heal granted by Second Wind.
  • One must heal another Survivor for the equivalent of 16 Health Charges to activate Second Wind.
    • If a Player performs the Healing action with a second Survivor helping out, the Healing progression will be split evenly between both.
      Second Wind will therefore not activate after the Healing action is concluded and will require to heal at least one other Survivor.
  • Second Wind will display how far along the Healing process is by means of a red indicator on top of the Perk's icon in the HUD.
  • Second Wind does not gain any progress towards its activation when the Player heals themselves by any means.
