Archives » Are Medical kits reusable? And other medkit questions!
Example 1:

I have a medical kit and a bacta refill, and out of nowhere a coverall-wearing noob with a knife jumps out and stabs me.
I kill him and proceed to treat my wounds...

I lost 17 HP (7 from the noob's knife and 10 from the blast of my rocket launcher) and the medical kit restores 7 HP.
I now still have 10 HP less than my maximum HP, so here's my question:

Can I reuse the medkit and just get another bacta refill? Or do I need a whole new medical kit? If it can be reused, how many times is this possible?
If it can't be reused, what happens to (other medical) items I may have stored inside my medkit? Do they drop to the floor? Disappear? Explode?

More questions...

Do you load bacta refills into a medkit the same way you do with a bacta tank?
If not, then how do you?
Does a medkit "come with" a bacta refill in the sense I only need a bacta refill to reuse it
(which would mean that I can use it for the first time without a bacta refill)?

Yeah, med kits needs bacta refills (1 per use), can be refilled multiple times. I doubt they come filled, unless you'll specifically order one.


If You don't live for something, You will die for nothing.
Next question:

Ok, so the rules mention that certain wounds can't be treated with cartain medical
items, and uses the example that you can't treat a blaster burn with a bacta patch.

My question is, the minimum HP restoration of a bacta patch is 1 HP, so am I garunteed
to get at least 1 HP from it even if the bacta patch is unsuitable to treat that wound?

The example said no. If the HR is too low then the bacta patch will be ineffective and you will need to use a medkit.
