How to Heal in Cyberpunk 2077

Your protagonist in Cyberpunk 2077 is still human, which means they can easily get hurt. Here’s what you need to know about how to heal yourself.

Thankfully, healing in Cyberpunk 2077, at its most basic, is very easy.

As you play through the game, you’ll come across various consumable items that restore your health. You can access them from your inventory, or you can simply press ‘up’ on your d-pad. Doing so will see V consume a healing item, restoring a little of their health.


We never had a shortage of healing items simply from looting, but if you find yourself needing more, you can buy them from merchants too. It’s likely you’ll have enough from killing enemies and searching your environment, so you hopefully won’t have to worry about keeping an eye on your inventory levels.

You’re also able to craft healing items, provided you have the right crafting materials in your inventory.

Furthermore, some implants allow for automatic healing. Implants are expensive, however, and they’re not all available to you right away – also, there’s usually a cooldown attached to their healing ability, too. Simply keeping a stock of consumable items is the best way to keep V in good health. Or, you know, trying to keep out of trouble. But we know that’s unlikely.
