Antibiotic Glue is a powerful Medical Item used to treat some common injuries extremely effectively.


Antibiotic Glue is used to treat Bleeding and Burns. When applied, it will reduce the affliction strength of both by 100 over a period of 1 second. This will only affect the limb on which the Antibiotic Glue is applied. This will translate to a maximum of 100 Vitality recovery from Burns for a character with 100 max Vitality, though a single limb will very rarely be burned to this degree. Bleeding does not reduce Vitality appreciably, but instead, Antibiotic Glue is extremely effective at reducing the rate of Bloodloss that Bleeding causes. Antibiotic Glue is one of the few Medical Item to only apply its effects to a single limb. It functions similarly to Bandages and Plastiseal.

Antibiotic Glue treats both regular Burns and Acid Burns.

Bleeding is caused by many attacks from Creatures and hostile Humans. Burns are caused by Fires, failing an electrical repair, various weapons such as Flamers and Ancient Weapons, Explosives, Radiation Sickness, and some Creature attacks, such as Fractal Guardians and Watchers.


Like all Medical Items, Antibiotic Glue can be applied via the Health GUI (Default Key H). See this page for more information on usage.

Antibiotic Glue cannot be loaded into a Syringe Gun, though it can be swung by hand.

Antibiotic Glue is used to craft Deusizine.

Even though Antibiotic Glue can be applied by hand on another character, this is not recommended, as targeting a specific limb is difficult, and the effects will only be applied to whichever limb is hit.


Antibiotic Glue is the most effective way to treat Bleeding and Burns, being twice as effective as Plastiseal. A single Antibiotic Glue will completely treat a limb in the vast majority of cases, and applies its effects in only one second. These factors make Antibiotic Glue extremely effective as a life-saving medicine, however in practical terms it is not worth using to treat wounds with because of its high cost. It is crafted using Stabilozine, Broad-spectrum Antibiotics, and Elastin, all of which are components in other important medicines. Additionally, since each Antibiotic Glue is so effective, a single limb will very rarely be injured enough to make full use of each dose, making it even less worthwhile to use as a general medicine. Antibiotic Glue might find some use in extremely rare and severe cases, though Plastiseal effectively treats the same Afflictions for much fewer resources, and is recommended as a much more cost-effective alternative.

Antibiotic Glue is also used to craft Deusizine, a very powerful medicine, and component in Endocrine Boosters. For a crew with resources to spare, this may be a worthwhile investment.
