Resting converts Energy into Hit Points. You can click the "Rest" link from the top bar to rest anywhere.


You heal different base amounts of HP resting depending on the area you're in and receive different messages describing the experience. Each point of First Aid increases the amount of Hit Points you receive by 10% (with decimal values rounded down).

Generally, if you're in an area where you have an apartment or a gang hideout available you'll rest there unless your current location is hard-to-enter.

If you are running the REM Timer program and have a Neural Link active, it overrides the normal resting results and gives a special message. You do not get a bonus for First Aid or special gang hideout benefits when resting with an REM timer.
