Lost health is regained slowly when player is not taking damage. Medikits can be used for instant healing, but are used only when player walks over them and are rare. If one character loses his health, player must use the remaining character to rescue the injured partner in limited time or game is over.
Player has option to arrest enemies instead of killing them. In order to perform an arrest player must target specific enemy and press the square button. When enemy's hands are up and player is near enough, another press of the square button handcuffs the enemy and completes the arrest. Player can arrest group of enemies if the A.I. partner is near and he manages to switch between the targets during the arrest.
Player can issue these commands to the A.I. partner:
- Follow me.
- Go forward/Move in.
- Take cover.
- Stay here.
