How to heal in Zombie Army 4: Dead War

How to stay safe while fighting through the undead masses in Zombie Army 4.

Zombie Army 4

Zombie Army 4: Dead War is about as grueling as it sounds. When it comes to battling through the undead, there are plenty of opportunities for you to take damage, and if you are new to the Zombie Army series, you are going to want to know how to heal yourself. Lucky for you, there are multiple ways to go about ensuring your survival

Use a med kit

The first, and most direct way, to heal yourself is to use a med kit. Med kits are always found in safe rooms at the beginning of each chapter. They will be sitting in a crate huddled together and there will always be at least one available for you and each of your teammates.

To use the med kit simply press down on the d-pad and within seconds you will be fully healed. You are going to want to save your med kit for when you are really battered and bruised. They are scarcely found throughout levels so wasting it when you have most of your health could come back to bite you in the ass.

Melee combos heal you

The second way to heal yourself is to use a melee takedown on a zombie. At the bottom of your screen there are three circles that fill up while you play. The circle on the right indicates when you can do a melee takedown.

To fill it, you simply need to get a combo of at least 10, which is very simple to do. When the circle is filled and lit up, get close to a zombie and press (“X” on PS4/”A” on Xbox One) and your character will perform a takedown. This will slightly heal your character with no cost to your med kit.
