First Aid Kit (commonly abbreviated to "FAK" by players) is a Medical item that can be purchased from (but not sold to) the Pharmacy.

Unlike Blood Bags, FAKs can be used by any player to reduce Hospital time.

The First Aid Kit was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.

Obtaining

The FAK is primarily obtained by opening Boxes of Medical Supplies, which have a chance to give 30 FAKs. It can also be purchased at the Pharmacy, found through city finds, and obtained from the Medical job special to steal a FAK for four Medical Points once a player reaches the rank of Senior Houseman.

FAKs can be purchased from the Mission reward shop in varying quantities.

Usage

Using a FAK will increase a player's Life by 10% of its maximum, increase medical cooldown by 15 minutes and reduce Hospital time by 40 minutes if a player is in the hospital. While the FAK's life gain and hospital reduction are inferior to Blood Bags, FAKs have the benefit of being usable by anyone.

Historical Notes

At release, FAKs took 50 minutes off a players hospital time but did not restore any life and had no cooldown. [1] Medical cooldown was added at the same time as Booster cooldown, the Medical 2.0 update gave FAKs the ability to restore life in 2015, [2] and the Medical Revamp 2021 changed the hospital time removal to 40 minutes, [3].
