Injured teammates

The Medic, also known as the Combat Medic, is a playable class in Team Fortress Classic. While being the primary healing force, his speed and offensive abilities make him a proficient killer. To aid in survivability, the Medic passively recovers health over time.

Basic strategy

  • Use your Medkit to heal wounded teammates.
  • Pay attention to team members who call for help.
  • Use your Medkit to infect enemies. The contagion spreads to other members of the opposing team if they come into contact with each other, causing panic and massive damage.
  • Try to buff the vital members of your team. You can increase their health by 50 hit points over their maximum.
  • Pay attention to teammates who have been infected by opposing medics; you are the only person capable of healing the infection.
  • When forced into close combat, use your Double-Barrel Shotgun or Single-Barrel Shotgun to defend yourself. In a fight, the Super Nailgun should only be used as a last resort; the nails fired are slow and easily avoidable.
  • The player shouldn't forget to use the Medkit to heal allies while departing from their base.
  • The Medic is a Heavy's best friend. When in doubt, overheal a Heavy, however you shouldn't neglect your other teammates.

Team Fortress

In Team Fortress, the Double-Barrel Shotgun's damage falloff makes it weak past very short range. In Team Fortress Classic, the Double-Barrel Shotgun has no falloff damage, making it much more powerful and letting the Medic keep his Super Nailgun ammo for Sentry Guns. In fact, the Double-Barrel Shotgun can be considered the Team Fortress Classic Medic's primary weapon because of its respectable damage output and range.


  • He is one of the only two Team Fortress Classic characters who did not make a reappearance in the Team Fortress 2 comic, A Cold Day in Hell, the other being The Civilian.
