Capture guards and extract medicine from them.
— In-game description[src]

The Health Extractor was an power-up used by Bentley to extract health from guards. It was an optional gadget that could be purchased from ThiefNet for 1,050 coins in Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and only 600 coins in Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. In Sly 2, it used up a medium amount of the Gadget Meter, while in Sly 3, it used up a small amount of the Gadget Meter. It could only suck in one guard at a time.


After activating the Health Extractor using its assigned button, Bentley will prepare one to be thrown. Tapping the assigned button again will allow him to throw it, and pressing it a third time will activate it. The Health Extractor will stay on the ground until it is used, and if it is used when no guards are near, it will activate for a moment before popping.

If a guard is near the Health Extractor, after turning it on, a vortex will come out of the top and suck the guard in. It will spin guards around and shrink them down, and then they will disappear, with a single health cross popping out. Any nearby guards can hear any guards that are caught in the device, but they cannot stop them from be sucked into it.

Trivia Edit

  • If you activate the device against a guard before it hits the ground, it will roll around as the guard is being sucked in.
