How to Revive Your Teammates in Fallout 76
The wasteland of Fallout 76 is a dangerous place and survival can be tough at times. Having a friend or two around to watch your back is a good idea, but sometimes even safety in numbers isn’t enough to protect you against the lethal forces of Appalachia. If one person on your team goes down, you’ll need to know how to get them back in the fight, so here’s our guide on how to revive your teammates in Fallout 76.

How to Revive Teammates
If one of your teammates bites the dust, you’ll see a timer over their head that reflects how much time they have before they actually die. Once the timer hits zero, they’ll suffer all the normal death penalties and respawn at a location of their choosing.
Luckily, reviving a teammate before they die is easily as long as you have a Stimpack in your inventory. By running up to an ally, you can revive them by pressing X on the PS4 or A on the Xbox One. This uses a Stimpack from your inventory and will bring the player back with a small portion of their health. Keep in mind that you will need a regular Stimpack, not a Diluted Stimpack or even a Super Stimpak, so if one is not in your inventory, you will not be able to use this function.
If you have the Quack Surgeon perk, you can actually use liquor like Whiskey to revive teammates instead of Stimpacks, which can sometimes be an easier resource to find in Fallout 76. There are other perk cards that bestow extra benefits upon reviving allies, like Team Medic, which heals other allies around you upon reviving a teammate. Check out our perk card list here for more info.
How to Get Stimpacks
Stimpacks can be found scattered around Fallout 76. You’ll find them randomly in containers and get them as quest rewards but you can also buy them off vendors, especially Medical Supply Vendors. Unfortunately, Diluted Stimpacks do not work for reviving teammates, and as of right now those are the only kind that you can make at Cooking Stations.
That’s all there is to it for reviving your teammates in Fallout 76. Make sure you don’t stray too far from your friends or you may not be able to get to them in time to revive them if they go down. And of course, always keep a couple Stimpacks on you at all times.
