Medkit not giving a full heal

conrudy24 Member Posts: 16

I’ve had this happen on so many occasions since the new update. I’ll bring in a medkit with 16 or 32 charges and as it runs out, I’m left with a full progress bar of healing but still injured. I didn’t miss any skill checks, killer didn’t have the doctor perk to make it last less. It’s just not giving me a full heal.

    Noticed this as well, I had a yellow medkit with bandages + medical scissors but only got 1 heal out of it and didn't get the full second heal...

    I am noticing this aswell. 16 charges is always just short of a full heal.

    I am playing on Xbox Series X and since the update 16 charges isn't enough to get a full heal. Bar is full, medkit is depleted, but I'm still injured.

    Another survivor will come along and literally just touch me for a split second and I'm healed.

    Same. I played for the first time after the chapter release today, I was using yellow medkit with Bandages (8 extra charges) and Butterfly Tape (slightly increases healing speed). Fully depleted the medkit and it was not enough for the second heal, like it was 1 charge missing. It happened at least 5 times in different matches.

    Noticed. The bug 16+16 medkid = 31 heal is BACK.

    Just for sure... I healed myself without any great skillcheck or missed skillcheck. pure classic heal only.

    same situation for:

    brown medkid + 2 addons with 8 charges (=16+16=32=>2 heals)

    yellow medkid + 1 addon 8 charges (= 24+8=32)

    both situatios - 1 full heal and 98% heal

    Also happened to me. Used a yellow medkit with an 8 extra charges addon (24+8 = 32) and I could only heal once, it's like it had 31 charges instead of 32. If you don't get any great skillchecks you won't get healed fully.

    This happened to me with an Alex's Toolbox, which has 24 charges, enough to break 4 hooks, however, the fourth hook I went to break didn't finish. The bar appeared to fill completely but then the toolbox was depleted, despite having 6 charges left, and the hook did not break.

    Happened for me too on ps 4

    Yup same on ps5. Brown medkits sometimes dont fullly heal by 1% or something

  • Mandy

    We really need logs on this please, whilst I appreciate the comments showing how many people are affected by it - logs would be incredibly helpful.

  • jacindazs
    jacindazs Member Posts: 139

    I already sent it. Do you need more? Should I ask friends or today try simulate situation?

  • BenSanderson55
    BenSanderson55 Member Posts: 454

    Is there a way to give logs from ps4? I'm not aware of a way.

  • Mandy
    Mandy Administrator, Dev, Community Manager Posts: 21,667

    yes please, it needs to be the last match played as well - so when you didn't get the heal correctly, the logs from that match.

  • jacindazs
    jacindazs Member Posts: 139

    ok, today we will try simulate situation. We should be 3 so we can use different medkits. I will upload logs ASAP

    I also want to mention Green Medkits aren’t giving the increased healing speed bonuses for yourself or others. I didn’t see a fix in the patch notes so I’m assuming this was not fixed today.

  • jacindazs
    jacindazs Member Posts: 139


    Brown medkit founded in chest - 99% health state - Log attached

    (instead of this I tryed green with green addon and double heal was correct)

    Can't provide logs as I'm on Switch, but same thing here. Happened with a Yellow medkit + bandages and a Green medkit. Both times was left injured but with a full heal bar. Not every time, only started with mid-chapter patch.

  • Pony_Baloney
    Pony_Baloney Member Posts: 12

    Yup, this has happened to me multiple times with any items that have charges. Medkits and also toolboxes too. (Not getting the 4th sabotage with Alex’s toolbox).

  • jacindazs
    jacindazs Member Posts: 139

    Is it enough?

  • Sheffield
    Sheffield Member Posts: 80

    Here the sme problem. 3x now 99% heal and Medkit is empty.

    1x Yellow Medkit with 24 charges + 8 with Add on

    2x Brown Medkit with 16 charges + no Add on

    Same thing has happened to me a bunch of times with a bunch of different medkits. Happened last game as well; here's my log file.

    I'm on PS4 and it happens with the green medkits, I run with no addons. It seems that medkits are broken if it's 16 charges only even though that's considered full heal, I have to have someone tap me for full heal. this issue seems to have happened after the 28th to me. easily reproduceable bug, just use a green medkit.

    Wow the imcompetence is astounding.... Nothing in the patch adressing med kits yet Behaviour manages to ######### things up. Can't say i'm surprised... Thank god i stopped spending money on this game.

    Why do you need logs? Medkit with 16 charges simply just have 15...

  • Haka1978
    Haka1978 Member Posts: 6

    Same for me the medkid is consomed just a little diffore the full healing. I noticed the before a recent update, de medkit is not totaly consumed after a full healing, a realy tiny portion stay aviable.

    A got two log files then I send the both.

    Have a nice day ;)

    Why is here "need more information" I thought it is enough and you will admit it as bug

  • tippy2k2
    tippy2k2 Member Posts: 4,901

    No logs as I'm on the Series X but joining the chorus of "Medkits be broke yo".

    I don't know if it's a coincidence or not but both times it happened to me, I got a skill check as the medkit finished.

    I play Xbox one x and I’ve had this happen with multiple brown medkits as well as once with a green one. I’ve now had this affect many games . How do we report those games?

    How can consolers help with this when we encounter this bug?

    Also had this happen on PS4 and if its any use I did record the gameplay. Happy to share or check it back to look for anything that you think might help.

    It's happened to me several times and I'll attempt to pull the log file every time it happens while I play today. Here's one.

    It doesn't heal you even with additional 5% boost

    I literally just experienced in my most recent game. Hope you can find this in the logs easier. PC / Steam

    Here's mine. Happens everytime I do not hit a great skill check, just normal heals. Brown medkit the last time.

  • whereismykebab
    whereismykebab Member Posts: 227

    Here is another one and proof that I hit all skillchecks

    Also the Meg had adrenaline which did not activate, I don't know if it's something you can see on my end of the log.

  • DBD78

    Brown medkits have this bug on Xbox One X. I mean devs only have to try it for themselves and see it won't give a full heal? I can buy them a console if they can't afford one 😀

  • whereismykebab
    whereismykebab Member Posts: 227

    I cannot 100% confirm it, but it seems that

    • hitting a great skill check will obviously heal you fully since it advances the heal by some percent
    • the times I didn't get any skill check promts at all, I got a full heal
    • as soon as you hit a good skill check (and no great ones) you're left with an empty medkit and a 99% heal that leaves you injured

    So it seems like the good skill checks might not count as continous progress and give some tiny penalty.

    It's the same issue with brown, green yellow and event with charge addons

    Here is my log. Please note that it is NOT ONLY medkits. Every item is coming into the game losing a charge.

    Brown medkit (16 charges), no heal.
