Healthpacks are placed around the maps as a way for Awesomenauts to regain health without having to go back to the base. Once taken, Healthpacks heal a 'naut for 400 health and take 2 minutes to respawn. Neutral Creeps drop smaller healthpacks which heal for 200 health, with the Solar Boss dropping a unique 100% healthpack. Healthpacks found around maps and healthpacks dropped from creeps scales by a factor of 4% each time a team gains a level, healing for 704 and 352 respectively at max level. The location of health packs can be seen on the mini-map. The location of a health pack is indicated by a green dot. The mini-map will not tell players if the healthpack has been used or not. If an allied Awesomenaut or Droid is close to a Neutral Creep, the mini-map will also show their location as green, moving dots.
As of Patch 3.4.3, healthpacks will vanish from the minimap upon being collected and reappear upon respawning.

Healthpack-generating abilities and upgrades
Note: Healthpacks generated by skills are team-exclusive (represented by team-coloured rings around the healthpack) and do not cleanse. Some skins may change the appearance of team healthpacks.
- Airstrike (Hamburger Phone) (Generates a healthpack at the point of impact after Airstrike is finished).
- Summon Robo Dinos (Dino Poop) (Dinos leave a trail of healthpacks while walking).
- Wrench Smack (Laboratory Centrifuge) (Marks enemy droids, causing them to drop healthpacks on death).
