Quick-Fix

War historians will appreciate the original medigun— still handy even though the invuln function shorted out after its first use.
Quick-Fix publicity blurb

The Quick-Fix is a secondary weapon for the Medic. It is a prototype Medi Gun with a group of three gauges on one side, a (cosmetic) ÜberCharge gauge on the other side, and what appears to be a blender for a body. The main gun is coupled with a medicinal reactor backpack with glowing portions that replaces Medic's default backpack.

This Medi Gun has a 40% faster heal and 25% faster ÜberCharge build rate compared to the default Medi Gun. It can only overheal patients for 50% as much as other Medi Guns, overhealing them to 125% of their maximum health instead of 150%, but can maintain a larger overheal previously applied on a target by other means. Additionally, should the player train the weapon on a faster ally, they will be able to move at the same speed as their healing target. When the ÜberCharge is deployed, the patient and the Medic will be healed at triple the healing rate, and become immune to movement impairing effects such as knockback, stun, and slowdown, including compression blasts, 'flinching' while scoped in with a Sniper Rifle remains unchanged; however, the Medic and target will not become completely invulnerable to attacks.

Whenever the patient uses an explosive jump (except Sentry jumping), the Medic will be shot upward as well. The Medic will be launched with equal force in the same direction. However, this effect cannot be transferred from Medic to Medic, meaning that only the Quick-Fix wielding Medic(s) directly healing the explosive jumper will be launched, not those healing medics being launched.

If a Medic heals a Demoman who charges by using the Chargin' Targe or Splendid Screen's charging ability, the Medic will also charge ahead at an increased speed.

The Quick-Fix was previously tested in Team Fortress 2 Beta. The Beta Quick-Fix, a separate variant of the weapon, was also available for use in the beta.

  • The Quick-Fix's ÜberCharge was known as the Megaheal in the beta.
  • A "Quick Fix" in medical or industrial-repair terms refers to a hurried or temporary fix of a problem or injury. These remedies may not always work or may prove ineffective to stopping the problem entirely, referencing that the Quick-Fix's ÜberCharge can still result in the death of both the Medic and his patient if enough damage is taken.
  • Dove droppings are seen on the main body of the Quick-Fix.
