Saline Bag/Blurry Vision
Closed, ResolvedPublic


After convincing another play to stab an IV tube with saline into my arm, my blood was brought back to normal. However my vision remained blurry as if I was still lacking blood. I relogged a few times and made sure I was nourished. Having color back was a plus but the blurry vision is a problem.

Did you move away from the Medic when he was administering at all?
Was the issue resolved after re-logging?
If the issue is not resolved, please change a few settings within video options, this is know to fix blurriness for some players.

Lovely. I believe this is a known glitch with the video settings, that do not hold the configuration after being changed. If all is resolved, can you please close the ticket if you can :)

If you watch this video, you'll discover that your actual health (Not blood) leads to a blurry screen.

Saline bags/blood bags may restore blood, but the ONLY way to restore health is over time by natural regeneration. (You'll have a healing or healthy tag in your inventory by your character.)

To regenerate health and blood, watch this video.

You'll discover that to get the "Healing/healthy" status, you must eat and drink constantly. AS outlined in the video, your body can hold a very large amount of food, and a decent amount of water (The Hungry status only appears at 6% of your maximum capacity! That's a EXTREMELY large amount of space going to waste! Water doesn't have as high as a capacity, but the thirsty messages only appear at 50 percent, so you still should drink and eat everything you find. If you find a water pump, mash the F button to drink from it constantly until you get a message your stomach is full. (The stomach stat is a different stat, it's NOT related to being hungry but how full your actual stomach is. Think of it as a "Limiter")

Once your "Energy" and "Water" stats are high up (The video gives approximate values, it's pretty high) for around 20 minutes, you'll see the healing/healthy status.

Once you have this status, your body will regenerate blood, and also you'll regenerate your health, causing the blurriness to go away. There are two different speeds of regeneration depending on how well fed/hydrated you are.

The blurriness is not a bug. I believe the blurriness going away when you go to video settings is an actual bug, however.

Blurriness is a symptom of low health, not low blood.

Saline bags only replenish blood, so you remained on low health and kept the blurry screen.
