Summary

With a small zap in the right spot, you can bring someone back from the dead right back into the action!

These are powerful, and therefore, you can only be revived once.

Background Story

To help the horrible death rate, a manufacturer decided to mass-produce defibrillators in the hopes that they would save some lives. Being able to bring back any comatose survivor, these are a very valuable item to carry around.

By jump-starting the heart again with electrical charges, these brought many people back from unconsciousness; although in an extremely weakened state.

Many lives have been saved by defibrillators, And remember - always defibrillate the person that died that had a defibrillator, to begin with.

Tips

  • You cannot grab or equip Medkits while you are holding this and vice versa.
    • There is a glitch however that allows you to equip both the Defibrillator and the Medkit at the same time. This can only occur if the player starts with a Defibrillator and gets a Medkit from completing a round of Arena.
    • This may be fixed in a future patch.
  • If you have a Defibrillator in your inventory when you died, they will be dropped right beside your body.
    • Try signalling someone to come over to your body and attempt to rescue you.
    • This will not happen if you die from a leaper. This may be a glitch.
  • You do not have damage immunity using a Defibrillator, so it is not recommended to use this against zombies.
    • If you must, shocking zombies knocks them back a couple of studs and stuns them, but deals no damage.
      • There is a split second cooldown, so don't use it in swarms of zombies.
    • However, there is a rare glitch that makes the Defibrillator stuck on a player’s back.
  • When revived, the once dead survivor is given 20 HP and an immunity shield for a few seconds.
    • Protect a revived player as they can be easily killed once the shield wears off.
    • If you are the one that was revived, do not stop to thank the player until you have been healed.
      • Buy some Pills from the In-Game Store if you haven't already to give yourself some breathing room.
  • Reviving someone in the water is difficult and dangerous.
    • It is best to attempt when there are no zombies nearby in a map with non-lethal water.
  • Even if you are allowed bring Defibrillators in some Gamemodes, people cannot be revived. This includes:
