When you get hurt in multiplayer, how long does the "unconscious time" last (during which you can be reanimated unless a foe executes you)?

And how do you make it longer with the space key? Do you need to tap in quickly or to match the same rythm as text flickering?

1 Answer 1


Unconscious time lasts: 12 or 11 seconds depending on difficulty.

Maximum time is about 21, 20 and 19 depending on difficulty.

To maximize unconscious time you must tap in rythm with text flickering.

  • Who'd have known - I've been mega-spamming the Space key all this time! They did a crappy job explaining the mechanic :/
