    I got it through starting over, on whatever level you want and literally don't do any scavenging for medicine, make sure not to have any medics on team. Then have someone in your community that is not your friend, and try to get them sick. Easiest way is to get an enclave to join, then go recruit them. Then on the way to home go through a bloater or two. Then comes the worse part you need to simply wait until someone gets gravely ill and is not a friend. Leave home, then about 5-10 minutes later, you will get the dreaded mercy shot.

    I WILL get alan by the end of memorial day weekend. starting tonight. My community has no healers, no medicine, no medical area, and a few non friends. hopefully now just wait for the effects to set in. sigh i hope this works.

    Good luck with that, it took slightly over two weeks before i got it to work doing that exact strategy.
    No healers, no medicine, no medical facility, and even no food eventually.

    Some non friends were left alone after getting sick from Bloaters
    Some non friends got to eat fire after getting sick from Bloaters
    Some non friends got to roll around playing car tag after getting sick from Bloaters

    i even let friends get sick to increase my odds by having more sick people.


    Expect a lot of gravely ill people to recover for no reason, more info if you click the site below

    I got Alan with a fully-upgraded Infirmary and two healers. It's completely RNG.

    Try to look for their mission. If non-friend survivor has a mission for you, go take it then find bloater. Walk near it and your mate will run right into it then get sick. If you don't want to gain trust then throw firebomb at them to reduce the trust.

    What if the character was sick before-but is now hurt?

    They have to be gravely Ill and not your friend. This is the only way I have ever got it. I have 2 gravely ill friends right now and I cant kill them.

    I tried everything to get it unlocked on the 360 version but nothing worked so I gave up trying.

    I bought YOSE on the x1. I didn't transfer my save so started a new game.

    I didn't even bother trying to get it but within a couple of days I saw a green dot in the home base on the map, went to check it out expecting one of those someone needs a talking to missions and it turned out to be a mercy shot mission.

    I didn't hear lilly announce it or anything it just appeared and I think but not 100% sure it was a friend as well.
