Get to an Upgrade Station, schnell!
The Medic

The Battery Canteens are an action item used in the Mann vs. Machine game mode. Its functions are identical to those of the Power Up Canteen. Once filled at an Upgrade Station it is valid for up to three uses. Using the Canteens will alert the entire team via a sound cue as well as a message in the chat box.

The Battery Canteens also double as a cosmetic item, showing up on a class's model, on the belt. Unlike the regular Power-Up Canteen, it only appears as "full" or "empty"; one cannot tell by looking at the model what type of charge that it is currently filled with.

A Medic with the 'Share Power Ups' upgrade for their Medi Gun will apply the effects of their Canteens to the current patient. This will not work if the Canteens are activated while not healing an ally.

This item was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Robo Quant-een".
