Featured How To Revive Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 is the next installment in the storied Battlefield franchise. These games combine fast paced first person shooting, with high stakes vehicle combat. There’s a variety of game modes you can take part in that will have you capturing points and attacking objectives! If while you’re playing in one of these modes you need to pick up one of your teammates, then you will want to know how to revive! We’ll teach you how in this easy to follow guide.

Reviving in Battlefield 2042

All players can revive others in Battlefield 2042, but you will need to be in the same squad as the player in need of help. When a player is downed, they can request a revive which will place an revive alert icon over them which you can see in the game. Head over to their location, and you can then use one of the following keys based on your platform to revive them:

  • PC – Hold down the E-Key
  • Xbox – Hold down the X Button
  • PlayStation – Hold down the Square Button

When you press the correct button on the player, you will take out a defibrillator and shock them back to life. However, revives are fairly bugged in the game. You might struggle to get it to work, which means you will need to move around them trying to get into the right position to make it function correctly.

A player can survive for thirty seconds before they perish for good, so make sure to get over to them in time!

When you revive someone, they will not be given full health. However, if you play as the Maria Falck Specialist, one of her perks in the game is that she can revive a teammate to full health. The Constantin Anghel Specialist will revive an ally with their bonus armor health filled.

Healing is done automatically after a short-period of time, however, there are also additional ways you can replenish your health. Maria Falck can use her S21 Syrette Pistol to fire syringes at players to heal them up. If you fire these at an enemy, they will do damage instead. You can also obtain a Medical Crate as any class, and throw it on the ground to heal players on your team that are within range of it.
