  • Health recovery happens at the end of the XCOM turn so badly wounded soldiers with this gene mod should be wary of enemies on Overwatch if attempting to retreat to safety.
  • The maximum health recovery excludes any "armor HP" provided by either body armor or items.
  • The recovery time reduction stacks with that of Rapid Recovery allowing soldiers with this gene mod to even more quickly return to duty.
