Hit Points (or HP) define the amount of damage your character can take before dying.
When your hit points reach 0 or below, you fall on the ground knocked down, which means you can only whisper. While knocked down you are unable to do anything. When your HP goes to -20 you will die, but if not in combat, your HP will regenerate every 2 minutes allowing your character to stand back up when it reaches 1 or above.
Hit Points regeneration
You can get back your hit points using:
- Hit points regenerate every 2 minutes by amount of Healing Rate
- A stimpak (+10-40hp), weak healing powder, healing powder (up to +20 hp), or a Super Stimpak - take care about the drugs inconveniences first, though.
- Your First Aid skill, that will heal you depending on the amount of skill points in the skill, with a cooldown if you use it (With 200% for example, you'll heal your target for up to 200 hit points). The average amount you can heal at a time is based on your Luck. The First Aid skill will award you 3xp for each hit point healed.
- You can ask Wasteland Doctor to heal you for caps.
Maximum Hit Points
Additionally, you will be awarded more hit points when you go up a level. The formula for hit points per level is Endurance/2. As the number of hit points per level is rounded down, it is advised to have an even number of Endurance points (2, 4, 6, 8, 10).
