Can You Heal Kelvin in Sons of the Forest?

Yes, it is possible to heal Kelvin in Sons of the Forest. If Kelvin falters due to damage taken, he will be in a “downed” state. Approach him, and you’ll spot a medical cross above him; press and hold the indicated button to bring him back up. The procedure is the same as what you did the first time you saw him after the helicopter crash.

Can Kelvin Die in Sons of the Forest?

This is a grim reality that we must live in: Kelvin can definitely die permanently in Sons of the Forest. This can happen if he is downed and then takes enough additional damage from foes and/or the environment (including you).

If he manages to die this way, it’s game over for him, and the only way you can save him from his demise is to “time travel” to a save file you hopefully made when he was still alive and kicking. If you can do this to save him, it might be worthwhile at the end of the game. He won’t really help you to beat Legsy, but I don’t want to spoil anything.
