If you are trying to stay alive during a run in Returnal you know how hard it is. The game doesn’t allow you to save your progress even though there are ways around that, it still makes things tough in each run. Healing is crucial to staying alive and surviving in Returnal so it should be a top priority for you during the run. In this guide, I will discuss everything you need to know on how to heal your health in Returnal.
Returnal: How to Heal Your Health
The game offers multiple ways for you to heal yourself and each method can be useful in different situations during your run. To heal in Returnal you need to find Silphium, it appears in green color in all biomes. Depending on the size of the Silphium you can heal a certain amount of health.
Large pieces of Silpium heal more. To pick them up you need to press the Triangle button on the DualSense controller.
Another way to heal in the game is through the Silphium Vials. While they are much more effective compared to raw Silphium you find, they are hard to find. If you don’t want to use Silphium Vials you can always siphon Integrity from enemies and Obolites.
The last method of healing is the Fabrication Pods. Interact with them to heal yourself in Returnal. These pods can only be used once per run. Keep in mind that items such as Silphium Vials fall under “consumables” so if you die you can’t carry over your consumables to your next attempt.
