The Strong Stim is available to Print without unlocking anything or purchased from the Osiris faction armory after completing the appropriate mission, and is recommendable over the Strong Medkit and Weak Stim for various reasons. Purchasing or printing strong stims will yield a stack of x5 stims in a single transaction. With a base health gain of 25, it can quickly restore a prospector's health with only a few uses. This means they are worth buying in place of the Weak Stim as long as you have the budget. Having several strong stims can greatly affect a Prospector's odds of survival on Fortuna III.
This item is a Consumable, and must be equipped to the player in order for it to be activated. Once activated, a progress bar will be displayed above the Health Bar, indicating the time delta of the operation. Once the progress bar has completed, a popping sound, a rush of noise, and a slight hiccup may be heard from the player's character. This audio is networked, meaning all local players nearby should receive it, making it a noisy consumable to use. Though the application of this item is Instant, the progress bar does take 3 full seconds to complete, and may be canceled by attempting to do any of the following actions; Sprinting, Mantling, Switching to another item, and Initiating a Soft or Hard Landing after falling some distance greater than 200 units.
