The Medic kit is featured in many installments of the Battlefield Series. Its main purpose is to heal and revive teammates on the battlefield. In Battlefield 2142, Battlefield 3, and Battlefield 4, the Medic abilities have been combined into the Assault kit.

Battlefield 1942[]

The Medic kit is featured in Battlefield 1942. They are denoted on the battlefield by a red cross over a white circle on their helmet. They are each issued a submachine gun and handgun, both of which vary by team, but all of them are fundamentally identical.

They are also equipped with several grenades and a combat knife. However, they are also equipped with a handheld medkit. By using the primary fire button they can heal themselves and other teammates. Unlike later versions of the Medic, they cannot deploy a medkit on the ground for others to use.

Battlefield 2[]

"Field Medics tasked with healing and reviving team-mates"

— In game description.

The Medic kit is featured in Battlefield 2. The Medic is equipped with three weapons -- an assault rifle, a faction-specific handgun, and a combat knife. While similar in armament to the Assault kit, the Medic is additionally equipped with two pieces of lifesaving gear -- the medic bag and a defibrillator, and lacks an underslung grenade launcher.

The assault rifles are functionally identical to the Assault kit counterpart -- with moderate damage and spread, and ergo being best suited to open firefights against infantry over a moderate distance. However, the Medic has less ammunition overall.

The first unique gadget issued to the Medic is the medic bag, a healing instrument which can be used in one of two ways. Like the Support's ammo bag, the medic bag can be either held or thrown down. When held, it offers essentially unlimited healing to the user, or the player being aimed at. When thrown down, the medkit will instantly heal one person, but will disappear thereafter. A related effect is implicit -- when the medic is in a vehicle, all passengers and soldiers near the vehicle he is in will be healed slowly.

The second gadget unique to the medic are the defibrillators. The defibrillator can be used to bring any incapacitated ally back to life, provided the ally hasn't already respawned.


Base Game[]

Special Forces[]

Battlefield: Bad Company 2[]

"The Hippocratic Oath takes a back seat to these field medics, who carry pills and defibrillators for friendlies and a light machine gun for all others."

— Instruction Manual Description

The Medic kit is featured in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It is a combination of the Medic and Support classes from Battlefield 2.

While retaining the defibrillator and medkits, the Medic class carries light/medium machine guns. The Medic kit is considered to be the most team-orientated of all the four kits in the game, as any Medic can keep players alive through healing, and revive any dead players if they are killed.

In normal game modes, players can now regenerate lost health, but the Medic can offer more rapid relief.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam[]

In the Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam expansion, the Medic kit remains functionally the same to the base game. The Defibrillator is replaced with a Syringe, but this is a purely cosmetic change.

As the UH-1 and PBR, two high utility vehicles in the expansion, can be damaged by small arms fire, the Medic now possess some degree of anti-vehicle capabilities, especially considering the volume of fire the kit's LMGs are able to output.


The Medic kit receives two specializations that are unique to the kit. More details can be found on their respective pages.

  • Medkit Improved Heal - This specialization is the unique Tier Two specialization for the Medic kit, unlocked at 12000 EXP. As the name implies, this specialization increases the rate the kits heal injured players, allowing players to regain health and get back to the fight faster than if a Medic had a different Tier Two specialization.
  • Medkit Improved Range - This specialization is a unique Tier One specialization for the Medic klass, unlocked at 21000 EXP. As the name implies, this specialization increases the healing range for thrown Medkit. This allows players further away from the medkit to make use of a single health kit without needing to displace from any prepared positions or hiding spots.

Battlefield Play4Free[]

The Medic kit is featured in Battlefield Play4Free, functioning in a similar manner to the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 counterpart. Its role is to support friendly soldiers with suppressive fire, heal and revive teammates. It is equipped with a light machine gun and Medkits; the Combat Defibrillator and Front Line Flare are obtainable via Training customization.

Battlefield 1[]

This item has a Codex entry: Combat Medic

The Medic makes a reappearance in Battlefield 1 as a multiplayer class.

Medics are armed with a self-loading rifle—typically a semi-automatic rifle, but with some variants allowing pseudo-automatic fire by holding the Fire button, and others being true automatic rifles—a sidearm, a melee weapon, and a hand grenade.

Medic in Battlefield 1 carry over some of the improvements available to the Assault class: two gadgets for healing (the lightweight Bandage Pouch and deployable Medical Crate), the ability to locate fallen teammates for reviving with a Medical Syringe (and for those teammates to see where nearby medics are), and an optional launcher for rifle grenades.


Similar to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the Medic kit has access to three class-specific specializations meant to help or boost their abilities in healing and reviving other players.

Battlefield V[]

The Medic is one of four base classes featured in Battlefield V. Its two Combat Roles are "Field Medic" and "Combat Medic". During Open Beta, only one of Combat Roles was available - "Field Surgeon".

Originally being equipped exclusively with SMGs, this class used to have the shortest effective range than the others until ability to use bolt action carbine from Tides of War. Player can use a Smoke Grenade or Smoke Grenade Rifle to close the distance, as well as provide themselves and friendly soldiers with extra cover or when reviving teammates.

New to Battlefield V is the 'Buddy Revive' system - players in the same squad are now able to revive each other without being a Medic but doing so takes several seconds, and is often done at high risk to both players. Using their kit-exclusive Syringe, Medics can revive downed players of any squad with shorter time.

The Medic carries a continuous supply of Bandages that can be tossed to teammates, which will cause their health to start regenerating immediately if the player is not currently or consecutively in combat. Doing so also give the player a consumable health pack that can be used to heal themselves later - Medics can therefore earn resupply points by issuing these single-use health packs to players.

The Medic can also use a pouch on themselves, the same way any other class would use them. Applying or tossing too many in succession will force the gadget into a short cooldown period. Medics who have the Medical Crate can place a down crate down for players to retrieve health pouches from.

Medic can also use AP Mine for personal defense.

  • Friendly medics do not appear in any singleplayer campaign. All healing (for the player) is achieved solely through regeneration. Important NPCs are generally invulnerable, but may still be targeted by enemies and appear to take hits, and may at times be scripted to die.

Battlefield 2[]

Battlefield: Bad Company 2[]

Battlefield 1[]

  • In Battlefield 1, the Rifleman class carries the weapons most often used by Medics.
  • The Medic in Battlefield 1 is most easily identified by the pair of crutches carried on his back, although they are never seen used in their intended manner.
  • All of the medics on allied nations carry a blanket around their chest.

Battlefield V[]

  • Downed enemies can be revived by enemy Medics with their syringe, but unlike multiplayer, they take a few more seconds to revive and return to combat.
  • In singleplayer, medics are easily identified with the pair of crutches again, as well as the Sanitater helmet available as a cosmetic for Germans in multiplayer.
