Blood transfusion

What is it for?

Transfusion (or applying the saline) is used to heal you or other players. You can't transfuse your own blood or transfuse to you someone else's on your own. It means that you need a partner. When the bag with blood is applied, blood bar is renewed. Saline regenerates only 1/10 of that.

Applying of those liquids is very important, because when you lose blood, you start to see world in shades of gray (it's a sign, that you'll lose conscious soon and then only defibrillation will help you). That's why you should always have those medicaments with you.

Blood groups

But before you start transfusion, you need to make sure that blood groups match. This problem doesn't appear when you apply saline. There are real blood groups in this game, so the best donor is player with 0-, while the best receiver the one having AB+. It means that 0- blood can be given to everyone, while player with AB+ can get blood from everyone. If you give not the proper blood group, you kill the receiver. That's why checking the blood group is so important.

Below you can find a table with matching of various blood groups. YES means that there is a match, while NO lack of it. Horizontally you can see the donor blood, vertically the receiver blood.
