Battlefield V Medic Class: Combat Roles

Battlefield V Medic Class: Combat Roles

Medic class lovers will be happy, the Battlefield V medic class will kick some ass once again with it’s primary weapon being Sub-Machine Guns!

This in our opinion will make the Medic class a lot more enjoyable and flexible to play.

Medic Class in Battlefield V
The Medic helps a squad survive and thrive. They keep teammates in the fight longer with rapid revives and health replenishing Medical Pouches. Although able to hold their own in combat with close to medium range weapons, the Medic’s best weapon is the syringe, which revives any teammate faster than the new non-Medic revive available to everyone in your squad.

Weapons and Gadgets
You need to be up close to heal and revive, so the easy-to-control, close-quarter SMG is the best choice when you can’t afford the distance of a sniper rifle or lots of time behind a machine gun. Create cover and obscure the enemy’s vision with the Smoke Grenade Launcher and use the opportunity to revive multiple downed friendlies.

Weapons and gadgets are set per Class, with more unlocked just by playing. Weapons can be customized as part of your Company.

Combat Roles
These are tied to Classes and provide two traits. Pick a Class and Combat Role with a loadout that suits your playstyle but be ready to make a switch at the deploy overview screen to adapt to on-the-ground situations.

Each Class gets two Combat Roles at launch with one equipped as a default, and the other unlocked by playing. More will release as part of Tides of War, giving players enough time to master each before providing them with additional options to choose from.

Field Medic (Base)
The Field Medic Combat Role is the squad’s best friend when a fight takes a turn for the worse. You see the bigger picture and know that supplying Medical Pouches to those in need yields additional Requisition Points, which in turn means that your squad will be able to call in more Reinforcements at a quicker pace. Still, you have intense focus and will sprint faster toward downed friendlies that you spot.

Field Medic Traits
Healer: You gain additional Requisition Points when you supply Medical Pouches to teammates.
Swift Effort: You sprint faster when calling out to a downed friendly soldier.

Combat Medic (Unlockable)
The Combat Medic Combat Role walks the fine line of altruistic and reckless, sprinting faster to and from gunfire when in low health, ready to dispense health and revive while still knocking down foes with a melee weapon.

Combat Medic Traits
Melee Expert: All of your melee attacks automatically take down enemies.
Emergency Retreat: You sprint faster when at critical Health.

Tips from Core Game Designers
Our developers chimed in to inject some helpful tips for those playing the Medic Class.

Whether you play the Field Medic or Combat Medic, making sure to supply your teammates with Medical Pouches when possible will always help your overall effort. Equipping the Medical Crate as an optional gadget, which you can earn through progression, lets you place healing supplies in set tactical locations instead of requiring you to stay within throwing distance of friends.

Experiment with each Combat Role when you unlock the Medical Crate and see what fits your play style and the current situation best.

Field Medics, be sure you try this: use the Spot button to ping your downed friends, which will trigger a temporary burst of sprint speed. This can help reach your friends in time and make you a harder target for pesky enemies. Calling out to downed friends like this will also ping them in the UI to make them aware of your intentions to revive.
