The Heat Pack is a piece of medical equipment in DayZ Standalone. They are used to keep a player warm while on the move, as opposed to having to stay near a source of heat. This is especially helpful with the v1.10 changes of wind chill when exposed outside for example.


The Heat Pack is single use and must be activated.

Once activated it needs to be put into the inventory or hands to warm the player. If put into attachable equipment like a pouches, it won't have any affect on the player.

The duration of the Heat Pack is 20 minutes, after which it will turn into a ruined condition.
