Knowing how to heal in Dying Light 2 is just as important as any of the other myriad mechanics in the game, and more important than most. Thankfully, it's also not very complicated. But if there is a complicating factor, it's the limited availability of healing items — you'll have to use some of your finite supplies to get your hit points back up to their maximum capacity.

Here's how to heal in Dying Light 2.

How to Heal in Dying Light 2

To heal in Dying Light, you can use the D-Pad to cycle through your weapons and items. The top section of these items contains the consumables you can use to restore your health. Cycle through your items until you reach a healing item, then hold down the use button for your platform — A on Xbox and X on PlayStation — and you'll start using it to heal yourself.

Different healing items have different use times, and you can speed up the process through upgrades to your gear. There are also safe zones with water supplies you drink and beds you can sleep in to heal yourself.

You can find more healing items through looting the wide world of Dying Light or by crafting them.
