How do I play successfully as a medic?

I keep dying as a medic. I don’t run directly into the battle, I just stay behind my allies, but I’ll still die before I can deploy an Übercharge.

Do you have any tips for me? How should I defend myself? What medigun should I use?


As the medic, your primary objective is to stay alive. If your ally is running somewhere stupid, don’t follow him. Don’t latch on to a single teammate and just keep him alive; keep everyone around you overhealed all the time.

If you are a good medic, your allies will protect you. If an enemy is coming straight for you, run towards an ally who can take him. Generally, as a medic, you should not be engaging in combat unless it is your last option.

If you keep your team healthy, they will have no problem keeping you alive too. Just stay out of the way.

I’m going to restate this point because it’s extremely important: do not follow your teammates into certain death.

Medic can be a frustrating role because they can’t do anything without competent teammates, but every team needs one.
