The Field Medic is the guardian angel that keeps your squad fighting long past when you should be on the ground bleeding. Field Medics have access to a diverse selection of weapons, all of which have an alternate fire mode for deploying healing darts to aid your comrades, allowing Field Medics to stay back from the front lines while keeping your squad in fighting shape.

General Information

Field Medic specializes in mid to long range combat with an emphasis on healing. Their skill choices let them focus on either being a supportive-type player that provides team with a set of movement, damage and resistance buffs, or to improve their own combat capabilities with better weapon, health and speed handling.

Each Field Medic has its own "healing" meter. Every time a Medic heals a friendly player, the meter increases by healer's heal amount (heal amount depends on the weapon and level, from +15 points for HMTech-101 Pistol at level 0 up to +30 points for the Medical Syringe at level 25). When the meter is filled (i.e. has 10 points on it), it resets and the player receives an additional XP reward. The meter does not become zero, but instead begins with the leftover heal amount from the previous healing cycle. For example, a player who had 7 points on the healing meter and then added +15 points with the HMTech-101 Pistol's healing dart will get XP twice because two cycles will be completed: cycle 1 completed after adding 3 more points starting cycle 2 with 15-(10-7) = 12 points, 12 > 10 so cycle 2 also completed, and the next cycle begins with (12-10) = 2 points on the healing meter. A Field Medic can build up its healing meter from multiple teammates; there are not individual meters for each teammate.

Perk Notes

  • Damage modification (skill): Battle Surgeon skill affecting on-perk weapons (including Knife). Zedative skill affecting all toxic damage causers. Damage ROUNDED.
  • Passive (Bloat bile resistance): Unlike Berserker (with Resistance skill) which resists to all forms of toxic damage, Field Medic's resistance applied exclusively on Bloat's puke attacks.
  • Passive (Syringe recharge rate): With each next level amount of the time it takes to fully recharge Medical Syringe or Healing Darts decreased by 8% (base recharge time / 1.08, base recharge time / 1.16 etc.), up to 200% at level 25 (on top of the base 100% recharge rate). This allows to recharge syringe up to 3 times faster.
  • Skill (Acidic Rounds): DOT is caused by Field Medic's on-perk weapons, grenades do not count - instead they cause their own poisoning which cannot co-exist with Acidic Round's DOT (best DOT in terms of total damage "wins"). Damage type - toxic. DOT damage ROUNDED UP. DOT significantly increased by Zedative skill (x10 DOT damage multiplier).
  • Skill (Adrenaline Shot, Coagulant Booster, Focus Injection): Buffs apply even when player's patient is at full health, buffs also apply at the player him/herself when self-healing. Furthermore, the player with the Symbiotic Health skill buffs him/herself each time when healing a teammate that lacks some health (healing a teammate that has full HP will buff that teammate but not the player).
  • Skill (Airborne Agent): Essentially explosion emitted from the player location resembles the explosion of Healing Grenade.
  • Skill (Adrenaline Shot): Speed bonus is a multiplier towards player's current speed - either x1.1, x1.2 or x1.3.
  • Skill (Coagulant Booster): Damage resistance bonus is a multiplayer towards the all incoming damage - either x0.9, x0.8 or x0.7.
  • Skill (Focus Injection): Extra damage bonus is a multiplayer towards the damage dealt by player - either x1.05, x1.1, x1.15 or x1.2. Bonus works with all weapons, even off-perk.
  • Skill (Zedative): For the duration of ZED Time this skill allows player to apply DOT on ZEDs by damaging them with on-perk weapons and also significantly increases damage dealt by all toxic damage types (Acidic Rounds DOT, Grenade and Airborne Agent clouds).

Strategy

As a Field Medic try to focus on healing and buffing. While you can be an effective "trash killer" with your shotgun and assault rifle, don't forget that there are dedicated perks for it.

Think of your team: it is recommended to stick up with the "left" skill tree if you play co-op. While you might want to have better combat capabilities for yourself keep in mind that there are perks which will do this job more effectively. Your buffs to their health, damage, speed and resistance will be vital for them!

Debuffs from the Hemogoblin might greatly aid your team in combat against big ZEDs, alternatively Hemogoblin might be replaced with Freezethrower + Medic Pistol combo. Should be noted that either of loadouts is rather "heavy" and leaves you next to no room for the weapon upgrades.

Having a Crossbow in your loadout will help you and your team with the Scrake takedowns. It has enough stun power to immobilize a Scrake even as an off-perk weapon.

While it might feel unnatural, as a Resilience medic you might want to stay at 50% HP if you planning to improve your armor durability. The reason is that damage to armor is calculated after your HP resistance; hence the lower your health, the less damage armor takes. However, don't forget that armor does not protect you from sonic attacks and falling damage.

Trivia

  • According to the character's favourite weapon lines, Reverend Alberts and Rae Higgins are both the Field Medics of the team.
