    I even tried that with no luck. Teammate was downed next to me and abandoned by the killer and I used a medkit to pick them up from dying to injured, then injured to healthy. During the same round I healed other survivors after unhooking them with a medkit and it didn't change anything. I'm guessing this bug was introduced during a patch or update in the last few months. Since it's in an old tome people are less likely to uncover it while grinding through the SAW one and now the Twins.

    I have tried this challenge for the past two days and had no luck. I have tried all different typed of medkits, and have made sure the perk was selected. I have even played with friends and made sure that I was the only person healing them.

    I appreciate the steady updates whole heartedly.

    Especially since tome 11 is at level 3 now and I still haven't finished the first tome because of this. :(

    It's really frustrating because I never really paid too much attention back then to the tomes now I'm stuck and can't complete that one which its one of the important ones of course

    I just completed the challenge I used the, botanist perk, ranger med kit, brown bandages and yellow scissors add-on’s, I unhooked the survivor I began to heal her the normal way and a lil after I switched to the med kit to compete the heal and I repeated the same procedure. Note you do not have to make it out alive, The Dreadge, wound up sacrificing me. Btw I was using, Dwight. Good luck everybody! 🍀

    Seems to be bugged again since the new patch. Now I'm not even seeing progress when using both the perk and the medkit in benevolence badge progress.

    I get badge progress when NOT using the medkit, but that doesn't help the achievement.

    Still bugged, I have completed it twice now. Once with an aid-kit, once with a ranger med-kit. Straight off hook heals, making sure it was a full state with med-kit only. I also made sure to heal another person just in case.

    I have video evidence of the challenge not completing.

    Still impossible on PS4 Pro, as of August 7, 2022. Healed four different people in the same match between both a green and purple medkit, finished the heals out with the kits and everything too.

    On PC at least, this bug is currently fixed. I finished this rift challenge yesterday. (It shouldn't matter, but i was using Claudette with a yellow kit and Bandages + Gauze roll addons.) I fully healed 2 survivors with the kit, even though it technically only says "finish healing" with a medkit.

    Still not working on PC as of November 29, 2022. I'm guessing the Forged in Fog update bugged the challenge, if it was ever really corrected.
