Whether you’re fighting waves of enemies or simply falling from great heights, you’ll need to do a ton of healing in Dying Light 2 Stay Human. There’s a chance for your health to go down at every turn in the open world zombie game and you need to be prepared with healing items. However, as time progresses throughout the game, you’ll quickly realize that the healing items aren’t enough for your needs. This is where healing upgrades come into play.

Like any other piece of gear or blueprint in Dying Light 2, healing items can be upgraded. These upgrades allow the items to heal you more and/or faster. This is especially important with something like the standard Medicine blueprint, as the healing power of that base blueprint doesn’t cut it once you start upgrading your max health with Inhibitors.

Upgrading healing items in Dying Light 2

For starters, you’ll need to have a healing item blueprint. The standard Medicine blueprint is given to you at the start of the game, so this is the one you should focus on upgrading early. However, you can also upgrade items like the Endurance Booster or any other booster.

To upgrade an item, you’ll need to visit a Craftmaster. These special merchants are located all around the map and have a hammer and screw icon above their head whenever you enter a settlement. Talk to them and then switch to the “Upgrade” tab in their menu.

From here, you can pick which healing blueprint you wish to upgrade. Each blueprint has several upgrade levels, so this won’t be a one-and-done type of thing. You will need the right amount of materials to upgrade the blueprint, though, so make sure you’re picking up everything on the map.

If you have the right materials, hold the upgrade button and your blueprint will be a little stronger. For something like the regular Medicine blueprint, the first upgrade makes it heal more. More advanced upgrades can shorten its time to apply and the amount you make whenever you go to craft them.

Visiting Craftmasters often, and having a large number of resources, is the key to upgrading healing items, or anything else for that matter, in Dying Light 2. For more walkthroughs and guide content, check out our comprehensive Dying Light 2 guides hub.
