|This single-use Medical Kit instantly restores a large portion of health via needle-free, subcutaneous delivery of adrenaline and nanite-based coagulants.|
The Medical Kit (commonly referred to as "medkit") is a one-time-use item that will restore the user 500hp (full health) instantly. Each certification level above 1 will allow the user to carry an additional kit. There is a 0.5s cooldown between medical kit uses. It costs 50 nanites to resupply each Medical Kit at respawn.
Prior to Patch 2016/12/01, medical kits would not actually provide 'instant' health, but rather very quickly heal the user until they reached full health. This allowed the medical kit to potentially heal far more than 500hp if the user was taking damage during healing. As of Patch 2016/12/01, medical kits now heal in a single game tick, making them truly 'instant', as the description implies. The 0.5s cooldown was also added in this patch.
Unlike its counterpart, the Restoration Kit, the Medical Kit is not suited for offensive use (i.e. applying in anticipation of taking damage.)
This is a universal certification; once unlocked, it is available to equip on all classes.
