Crystal vial

From DoomWiki.org

(Redirected from Crystal Vial)
A bunch of crystal vials found in E1M1: The Docks.

The crystal vial (called a vial in Heretic and Hexen manuals) is a small floating glass bottle containing an unknown blue liquid. Restores 10% of the player's health when picked up. Crystal vials were introduced in Heretic and returned in Hexen. They are equivalent to Doom's stimpack. Hexen II manual states that the vials are too fragile to be carried around like the quartz flasks and should therefore be used immediately.

This item is not counted in the items percentage displayed at the end of each level in Heretic.
