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

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

The Small 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 SFAK is primarily obtained by opening Boxes of Medical Supplies, which have a chance to give 50 SFAKs. It can also be purchased at the Pharmacy, found through city finds, and obtained from the Medical job special to steal a SFAK for two Medical Points once a player reaches the rank of Houseman.

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

Usage

Using a SFAK will increase a player's Life by 5% of its maximum, increase medical cooldown by 10 minutes and reduce Hospital time by 20 minutes if a player is in the hospital. While the SFAK's life gain and hospital reduction are inferior to Blood Bags, SFAKs have the benefit of being usable by anyone.

Historical Notes

At release, SFAKs did not restore any life and had no cooldown. [1] Medical cooldown was added at the same time as Booster cooldown and the Medical 2.0 update gave FAKs the ability to restore life in 2015. [2]

Trivia
