There are three sources of Health in Painkiller, each serving slightly different purposes or situations. The first is a normal Health pickup, similar to other titles, this pickup will allow you to recover from damage you sustained during battle but will not allow you to exceed 100 health. If you are hurt badly you may need 4 of these to recover fully. The second type of health is the Mega Health. This health gives you an instant 100 points of health and allows you to exceed 100. It is worthwhile to obtain Mega Health before engaging your opponent. And finally there are the Souls of your fallen opponents, which may be picked up to recover from damage or exceed 100 health. These are
very useful after taking out a difficult opponent.

Health

Statistics
Health Value: 25h
Respawn Time: 25s.
Max. Health: 100h
Respawns in same location? Yes

Health is the basic source of all vitality in the game. After you are injured in battle you can collect health to restore your vitality.

Statistical Breakdown

» Health cannot accumulate over 100h.
» Health respawns 25 seconds after it is collected in the same location.

Tips and Notes

» Know where the health is on every map. You never know when you’ll need it. It also gives you a good idea of where a wounded opponent is headed.
» The sound health makes when it’s picked up is very distinct. This can be an advantage and disadvantage so use caution.

Mega Health

Statistics
Health Value: 100h
Respawn Time: 1min.
Max. Health: 250
Respawns in same location? Yes

The Mega Health is the most valuable form of heath in the game. Upon pickup it provides an additional 100h up to 250h. Combined with GA or SA this can give you a distinct advantage over your opponent.

Statistical Breakdown

» Mega Heath has a cap of 250h.
» The Mega Health respawns 1 minute after it is collected in the same location.

Tips and Notes

» 200h with 150 SA can take more damage than 100h with 200GA.
» The sound the MH makes when it’s picked up is very distinct. This can be an advantage and disadvantage so use caution.
» Try to time the MH in between GA runs.

Souls

Statistics
Health Value: 15h
Soul Duration: 30s
Max. Health: 250h
Respawns in same location? No

When you kill your opponent his soul will be left behind along with the weapon he was using at the time of his death. Souls are worth 15 health and they allow you to go above the 100h cap. It’s a well deserved reward for all of your hard work.

Statistical Breakdown

» Souls allow you to go over 100h up to 250h.
» Souls disappear after 30 seconds and never respawn.

Tips and Notes

» Make sure to grab souls before they disappear!
» 1v1 – If you are in a battle, kill your opponent and have 75h remaining. Collect a regular health before collecting the soul. This will give you 115h instead of 100.
» FFA – Soul stealing is an easy way to get some extra health. Just because you didn’t get the frag doesn’t mean you can’t reap the rewards.
