An IFAK in MW2 DMZ stands for Individual First Aid Kit and is an item that can be found across the maps on Al Mazrah or Ashika Island.

You will primarily be using the IFAK in DMZ to complete the Health Conscious mission for the Legion Faction at tier-one, but you can also sell it at any of the Buy Stations for $100 if you're looking to add a few more funds towards your next purchase.

In order to extract IFAK in DMZ, you must find it on any of the available maps and extract from the deployment with it in your backpack. The objective to extract an IFAK in DMZ is part of the tier-one Legion mission called Health Conscious, which essentially tasks you with tracking down medical supplies for the faction's injured operators.

Finding an IFAK can be a little tricky and is largely up to RNG, as there's no set spawn location for it, but you will only need to locate one and extract with it to complete the mission. Despite there being no set location, there are specific places where it contains a much higher spawn rate.

We suggest looking in medical locations like hospitals or doctor's offices, as there's always a high chance of finding an IFAK. Medicine cabinets that can be found in apartment bathrooms are typically a good spot too, so scouring residential buildings in Al Mazrah City should see you quickly find one.

It's also worth noting that the other tasks for the mission involve finding a medicine cabinet and two bandages, so you can kill three birds with one stone if you're lucky and follow the above advice.

First aid kits, which are located across the map, are also places that the IFAK frequently shows up in. These are usually located on walls in industrial buildings, or in the backrooms of shops.

Once you have found your IFAK, quickly get to the nearest extraction point without dying, and you will be able to finish the mission.

So, that's everything you need to know if you were wondering how to extract IFAK in MW2 DMZ, so you should hopefully be able to complete the mission now and progress the Legion faction in-game.
