Vitality is a Physical skill in Escape from Tarkov.


Vitality improves your chances of surviving a wound by decreasing the possibility of bleeding and instant death through critical damage to a body part.




  • Reduces bleeding chance (1.2% per level → -60% at Elite Level)
  • Reduces chance of death from losing a limb (0.5% per level → -20% at Elite Level)
  • Elite level: Increases health regeneration in combat
  • Elite level: All bleedings stop on their own
    Note: This means that bleedings will stop automatically after a few seconds without the use of medical items.

How to raise[]

  • 0.01 points for every 5 points of damage taken
  • 0.3 points for getting bloodloss
  • Leveling bonus is reduced every 1 skill point gained (129% for first 0.01 to 1 points)
  • Completing the quest Ambulance
  • Completing the quest Crisis


Vitality can easily be raised by running through a fire to take damage. Be careful not to stay too long in the fire because of the high damage it causes. You can use eTG-change regenerative stimulant injector and Propital regenerative stimulant injector to heal yourself
A safer option to raise vitality is to obtain a heavy bleed and use Propital regenerative stimulant injector to heal yourself without fixing the heavy bleed. You can also use barbed wire with its lower damage output and combine these two options.
