— The Medic


A Teutonic man of medicine with a rather tenuous adherence to medical ethics, the Medic is nonetheless the primary healing class of the team. As the Medic doesn't possess the best arsenal for straight-up gunplay, he can typically be found near the front-lines, healing wounded teammates while trying to stay out of trouble. While his Medigun is focused on an ally, wounded teammates will quickly regain health, while unharmed teammates' health will be temporarily topped up. While healing, the Medic's ÜberCharge bar will fill up until the weapon begins to crackle, at which point he can activate a potent charge that either makes himself and an ally temporarily invulnerable (when using the default Medigun),gives his patient 100% critical shots for up to 8 seconds (when using the Kritzkrieg), or heals at a 300% faster healing speed and grants immunity to all movement impairing effects (when using The Quick Fix).

The Medic is the only class capable of regenerating health over time (aside from the Sniper when the Cozy Camper is equipped); the longer a Medic stays out of combat, the faster his health will recover. A damaged Medic will regenerate health at a rate of 3 HP per second, which scales up over the following ten seconds to a maximum of 6 HP per second, (though carrying the Blutsauger reduces the regeneration rate from 3-6 to 1-4, and the Crusader's Crossbow and Amputator together will raise it by 1.)

Bio

Name: Unknown
Country of Origin: Stuttgart, Germany
Job: Doctor Assisted Homicide
Motto: "Prepare for your examination"
Badges: Medic badge BLU.png  Medic badge RED.png
Description: What he lacks in compassion for the sick, respect for human dignity, and any sort of verifiable formal training in medicine, the Medic more than makes up for with a bottomless supply of giant needles and a trembling enthusiasm for plunging them into exposed flesh. Raised in Stuttgart, Germany during an era when the Hippocratic oath had been downgraded to an optional Hippocratic suggestion, the Medic considers healing a generally unintended side effect of satisfying his own morbid curiosity.

Basic Strategy

Main articles: Medic tips and Medic strategy
Medicava.jpg
  • Use your Medigun, Kritzkrieg, or The Quick Fix to heal teammates, and buff them up to 150% of their normal health. The more you heal, the closer you will get to a 100% percent charge on your secondary item.
  • If using the Medigun, hit Attack 2 to go invulnerable. Your ÜberCharge makes both you and your Medigun target invulnerable for eight seconds. You may also choose to split the charge among more teammates, but bear in mind that the charge will run out faster.
  • If using the Kritzkrieg, note that you will charge 25% faster and ensures eight seconds of critical hits when hitting Attack 2 instead of invulnerability.
  • If using The Quick Fix, note that you will charge 25% faster and ensures eight seconds of 300% faster healing speed and an immunity to all movement impairing effects when hitting Attack 2 instead of invulnerability.
  • You fill your ÜberCharge faster by healing teammates with lower HP.
  • Keep alert for teammates calling for your help. Use the Medic arrows onscreen to find them. You may also activate an Auto Calling option in the options menu.
  • Learn to bend your medic beam around corners to stay out of splash damage range.
  • Medic auto-call is located in your options menu. This option allows you to select how much damage your team-mates can take until they automatically call out for medic, indicated by a unique chime. The range is from 0%-100%.

Trivia

Medic mm.jpg
  • The Medic's real name might be Fritz. The Soldier calls him so in one of his domination lines. However this is not confirmed in any way, and Fritz was a nickname used by Allied soldiers to refer to German troops in the First and Second World Wars.
  • The Medic, along with the Pyro, did not receive a job description and motto in Trailer 2, though the trailer for the cancelled Black Box does feature footage of him firing his syringe gun in the beta 2fort (0:36-0:43)[1].
  • The Medic is the only class not to receive a taunt attack in his own update, however one of his taunts was later altered to heal him. He then received an actual taunt kill in a later update, originally making Medic the only class with two taunts that have an effect (The Engineer would later get two of his own)
  • If a Medic is killed while having an ÜberCharge prepared but undeployed, his ragdoll will be surrounded by electricity.
  • The Medic is voiced by Robin Atkin Downes, who also voiced Travis Touchdown in the Wii action game No More Heroes, among many other roles.
  • According to one of the Demoman's domination lines, the Medic has a wife. Whether the Demoman is a reliable source of information is a different question entirely.
  • The Medic is the only class who wears glasses for eyesight reasons.
  • The Medic, along with the Pyro, are the only classes who have not received any new lines, either in-game or in the Meet the Team videos, since the game was released. The Medic and the Pyro are the only characters who did not receive new voice responses during their class update.
  • Although he lived through the Second World War, and his bio hints at a dark past, Valve has stated that the Medic is not a former Nazi. [citation needed]
    • Aditionally, none of the other classes call him a Nazi in any taunts or dominations.
  • The Medic, the Spy, the Soldier, the Scout, the Engineer, and the Pyro are the only classes to obtain a misc item, excluding the misc items that can be worn by all classes.
  • Ironically, despite the fact the Medic is said to care more about cutting people open than healing them, he has invented probably the most efficient medical device in history that heals people without any surgery required.
  • In the last page of the comic 'Meet the Director', the conversation between the Administrator and the Director culminates in the Administrator's office, in which there are television screens showing footage of the Medic. This was a hint to the 'Meet the Medic' video, yet to be released at the time. [2]
  • A "Pocket Medic" is a term used to describe a Medic who sticks with a particular strategic class, typically a Soldier, Demoman or Heavy. They form a symbiotic relationship: the "pocketed" class has a better chance at surviving and completing the objective if he keeps his Medic alive. Experienced players will argue that a skilled Medic will heal all of his teammates instead of just the class he is pocketing.
    • Because of the popularity of the term "Pocket Medic", Valve implemented a community-made misc item of a small Medic doll for Heavy and Soldier called the "Pocket Medic".
  • The Medic keeps several organs stored in his refrigerator in petri dishes. He also has a severed Spy head kept alive by a car battery that occasionally pleads to the Medic for death. This is the same refrigerator that has starred in Meet the Sandvich.
  • The Medic has several pet doves, one of which is named Archimedes, inspired by the ancient Greek philosopher.
    • He obtained these doves by stealing the wedding catering van of a prime minister in his past. This was explained when Valve released the Archimedes plushie and misc item for the Medic.
  • The Medic lost his medical license in an incident involving an unfortunate victim who found his entire skeleton to be missing after he operated on them.
  • When equipping the Amputator and the Crusader's Crossbow, afterburn will have almost no effect.
  • According to "Meet the Medic", each of the RED team (and probably the BLU team) has a "Giant Baboon" heart with an "über" attachment to allow übercharging.
  • In the Medic's refrigerator there is a heart labeled Loch Ness Hamster.
  • In the Meet The Medic video, the Medic incorrectly attached the über machine into the bottom of the Heavy's heart instead onto its right side.
  • The Medic is the only class which has a purchasable class-specific taunt.
  • Archimedes, the Medic's pet dove, is seen stuck inside of the Scout at the end of the Meet the Medic Video. After the release of the Uber update when the Scout is gibbed in-game, there is a chance of Archimedes flying out of him. Seen here.
