Learn all the information you'll need to know about healing for Call of Duty's new Battle Royale mode Blackout! We've got all the stats and information on Trauma Kits, Med Kits, and First Aid that will help you survive the battles.
Blackout Healing Basics
Healing is pretty straight-forward in Blackout. You have a healing item area that displays what item will be used if you press the healing hotkey. You can be moving while you heal, and if you are a passenger in a vehicle then you can heal as well. Each item heals for a different amount of health and takes a certain amount of time before the heal actually triggers. The healing also happens over a brief period of time, you don't get it back instantaneously but over about one second. This is largely inconsequential, but there will be times when this could be relevant.

Being Knocked Down
If you are in a Duo or Squad match you or a teammate will inevitably be knocked down. This does not mean you are out of the game, but someone will need to help the knocked down player up. It is currently really quick to bring back your teammate from the brink of death compared to other Battle Royale games. It seems to be about three to five seconds required, so if you are covered for the most part it is worth grabbing your teammate. Once they've been brought back to life they will start at 50 hp.
You can find three levels of armor currently in Call of Duty Blackout. The weakest is level 1 and the level 3 armor is the strongest. You can find level 3 armor pretty reliably in Zombie spawn locations and from Mystery Supply Drops. Armor does not give you extra hit points, but it does dampen incoming damage from enemies.
Tier 3 level armor is the only armor that will reduce headshot damage. This type of armor is extremely powerful, and visually makes you look like a tank when you are wearing it. Here's exactly what the tier 3 armor offers you:
Body Armor that reduces damage from bullets by 65%. Protects from Headshots. Reduced damage from explosives and fire. Adds resistance to 9-Bang, Concussion, and Razor Wire.

Healing Items in Blackout
Here's the healing items you can find in Blackout currently. We'll be adding more information here as the game evolves and adds more items.
First Aid is the most common and weakest of the healing items you'll find in Blackout. It heals you for 25 hp and takes about three seconds to complete. These are your standard bandage type items in most Battle Royale games. When you find them on the ground they spawn in a set of up to three, but you'll have to pick them up one at a time.
The Med Kit heals you for 50 health and takes about three seconds to complete. This is your standard Med Kit that heals for a good chunk in other Battle Royale games.
The Trauma Kit is the strongest of all of the healing items. It will heal you to max health from any amount, and will also give you 50 extra health points. Currently you start with 150 hp, but with a Trauma Kit you will go up to 200. However, this is a temporary buff, if you lose any of the extra health you will not gain it back when you heal it again. You can only get back up to 200 if you use another Trauma Kit.
