Bandages are crafted medical supplies that stop bleeding and heal a small amount of health. It is common to chain-use bandages when the player has no access to other medical supplies, as hemp can be picked while running around the map and used for an easy health boost.

It takes 5s to use a Bandage, heals 5 hp and stops bleeding completely. Costs 4 Cloth which can be easily gathered around the island.

Bandages are a really important item in rust. They are learned by default. Bandages are commonly used for stopping bleeding and healing when behind cover.

When using a set of bandages, watch your HP. The moment you gain 5 HP, you can cancel the animation and start using another one. This can help you heal much faster.
