The Medic-bot

Medic Robots appear in Mann vs. Machine as enemies. When spawned, their secondary weapon will always be trained on another robot, usually a giant, and will only heal that robot until it is destroyed, whereupon it will find another robot to heal. Provided that they have it available, Medic robots will always deploy their ÜberCharge when either their patient's health drops below 50% of their maximum health or the Medic's health drops below 50 health points. When Medic robots are separated from their heal target or cornered by a player, they will fight with their Syringe Guns and look for their patient. If separated from their patient, Medic robots won't be able to deploy their charge until they find a new patient. Unlike the other robots, Medic robots have a wheel (or two wheels attached to a chariot in Romevision mode) to move instead of legs.

Quick-Fix Medics heal teammates much faster than Über Medics but have a very slow ÜberCharge rate, and are also equipped with a Syringe Gun. They tend to appear in larger numbers than Über Medics.

A second variant of Quick-Fix Medic has the same healing and ÜberCharge rate as the regular Quick-Fix. The base healing rate of the first variant is much higher than that of the Quick-Fix ÜberCharge effect, but the second variant provides knockback immunity during the Quick-Fix ÜberCharge effect.

Über Medic

These Medics don't appear often as other robots, but when they do, they usually accompany Giant Robots, with as many as twelve Medics healing a single Giant. Über Medics are equipped with a Syringe Gun and Medi Gun. They spawn with full ÜberCharge and will deploy it under the same conditions as other Medic robots. With enough burst damage, is possible to destroy these before they are able to deploy Übercharge, allowing defenders to circumvent the invulnerability period.

The first variant has a faster heal rate than the second and doesn't suffer an ÜberCharge duration penalty. Once this variant has deployed its ÜberCharge, it will only be able to do so again after about 80 seconds. This leaves a lot of time for defenders to destroy this variant while it is vulnerable.

The second variant heals at a significantly slower rate, but has a much faster Übercharge rate. In most conditions, it will be able to have its charge ready within 16 seconds, making it important to destroy this variant before it regains full Übercharge.

The third variant has a longer ÜberCharge duration. This variant is very dangerous if sufficient burst damage is not available to destroy it instantly. This variant only appears on the fourth wave of Broken Parts and spawns alongside Giant Heavies.

Giant Variants

Pictogram plus.png +19900% faster heal rate
Pictogram minus.png -50% movement speed


The Giant Medic heals its patient (almost always a Giant Robot) at 200 times the heal rate of the standard Quick-Fix, fast enough to instantly outheal any kind of damage the defenders can inflict. It spawns with a full Übercharge meter, and has a considerable amount of health (second only to Giant Heavies, "boss" giants, and Tanks). Giant Medics will activate übercharge (Or Megaheal) under the same conditions as regular Medic robots; this will make this bot and it's patient essentially indestructible until the charge is finished. Like other Medic robots, Giant Medics will find new healing targets if their old ones are dead (Commonly choosing targets such as Soldier robots and Heavy robots ).

Although this variant doesn't have an Übercharge, it regenerates health faster than other Medic robots, which can allow it to recover a large amount of health if left to do so.

Update history

March 19, 2013 Patch

  • Fixed the Über Medics in Wave 4 of the Broken Parts mission charging at an incorrect rate.

November 21, 2013 Patch

  • [Undocumented] Added -90% Syringe Gun damage penalty to all robot Medics.
  • [Undocumented] Removed the secondary-only weapon restriction from Quick-Fix Medics.

Unused content

  • There are three unused Medic robot types all attempting to use a scrapped weapon that does not exist named The Vaccinator MvM in the game files. When given a Vaccinator, each one uses a different resistance type with the Vaccinator. There is also an unused Uber Medic variant with one-fourth the normal Ubercharge rate.
  • There are three unused Gatebot lights left in the game files. One adds a light to the chest and the back of the head, one adds a similar set of lights, but with more metal around them, and the final Gatebot light puts a light with a small cable hanging off of it, made to resemble a fez, on top of the head and two lights to the ear section of the head.

Trivia

  • The Medic robot's wheel lacks a set of hitboxes, and instead uses the human Medic's leg hitboxes despite those not matching the robot animations.
  • Another Giant Medic variant appears in Broken Parts and Caliginous Caper. This variant is identical to the Giant Medic, with the addition of a Warsworn Helmet.
