Firstly, progress the game until you unlock Nora, a rather unsettling robot vending machine. The glove will introduce you to her in a sequence during the main quest, “Not So Fast, Major.” Once you have Nora unlocked, interact with the vending machine and choose the first option, Arsenal Upgrade.
Navigate to the consumable tab, and you will find the different-sized Neuromed Capsules:
- Small Neuromed Capsules – Heals 50 HP
- Medium Neuromed Capsules – Heals 100 HP
- Large Neuromed Capsules – Heals 150 HP
Once you have enough Synthetic Materials and Biomaterials resources, you can click the + icon to select the quantity of Health Capsules you want to craft. Then, you can hold the right-click button to initiate the crafting process.
At the beginning of Atomic Heart, you get the schematics for crafting Small Neuromed Capsules. To craft one, you need two Synthetic Materials and four Biomaterials. The higher variants require more resources to craft in exchange for healing a higher HP.
About how to heal yourself in Atomic Heart, if you’re playing on PC, you can press the X button to use a Neuromed Capsule that will heal you. Meanwhile, you can press the Z or C button to cycle between other consumables.
