Item ID

A first aid kit is a small medical container.


A first aid kit has a weight limit of 4 and can spawn containing a range of medical items. Although the name and spawnable items would suggest it can only hold medical items, it can actually hold any type of item, just like other bags. To see and use the contents of a first aid kit, it must first be equipped, just like other equippable containers.

First aid kits can spawn with:

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.
