This is my first time playing this game and I was able to use a health kit when prompted after the firefly attack at the beginning.
Now it will not let me use health packs though, up on the d-pad is doing nothing at all so when I press and hold R1 that also does nothing since I don't have the health kit in my hand. I know I have the maximum amount of health kits I am allowed to carry so that's not the issue.
When your character is equipped with a health kit, you can see that in your character's hand. Press and hold R1 so your character goes into an animation of healing (bandaging) until the animation stops. Do not release R1 until the animation stops.
If you are not equipped with a health kit in your hand, pressing R1 does nothing to heal.
Make sure that you're indeed equipped with health kit. You can check visually.
If there is no health kit, obviously you can't equip one. But you can craft one.

Hey thanks I needed this info too. Also thanks for not being an **bleep** when answering the question. I'm new to all gaming and from what I've read this far, there's a whole lot of gaming snobs. What's wrong with you people? I don't understand why it's so fulfilling to attack someone who isn't experienced in game play? You should be happy that more people are finding this stuff so enjoyable, like myself. Get off your high horse. I thought these blogs were to help people.
