Reduces panic
— In-game tooltip.

Beta blockers are an item used in first aid.


Beta blockers are drugs available to the player to lower their panic level over time when dealing with zombie encounters. They can be used ten times before they run out and are able to stack their effect up to four times, allowing for the player to deal with increasingly more zombies.

Panic decreases the player's accuracy when using firearms and lowers melee damage, critical chance and vision cone, therefore taking beta blockers is ideal if the player is expected to encounter zombies. The effects last for one and a half in-game hours.


The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
