On the fast and deadly field of combat, a combat medic moves quickly among friends to provide battlefield care while firing back at enemies. At home in the thick of battle, a combat medic delivers life-saving e-sutures between hurling bio-poison attacks.

Combat Talent Strategy[edit | edit source]
Bio-Poison Slugs[edit | edit source]
This is a good go-to replacement for a default pistol attack. The bio-poison is reasonably strong and the small defensive debuffs help less accurate allies finish off a target. However, unlike basic pistol attacks, this talent cannot hit the 3rd position.
E-Suture[edit | edit source]
This talent is for AoE healing. It has a rather high initiative cost for a small amount of healing. However, in cases where the entire party is slightly wounded, it is a good option.
Cleansing Purge[edit | edit source]
This an all-around healing/utility talent for the Combat Medic. It removes debuffs, restores a decent amount of health and also restores morale. Against Xeno, who debuff entire groups rapidly, it will likely be insufficient to keep up with debuff removal. Consider Flatline (or bringing a different job entirely) instead.
Vaccination Watch[edit | edit source]
A somewhat situational talent that is primarily useful if your foe is heavily relying on bio-poison damage and you have no immediate healing needs. A 10% Armor bonus effectively means 10% less incoming damage unless the buff is removed. It also grants a small bonus to Energy Resist which can come in handy against Xeno.
Toxin Terror[edit | edit source]
Another situational talent, Toxin Terror would in theory support an entire team of bio-poison attackers but has a very high initiative cost for what it does. If your foe fails to remove the debuff and battle is dragging on, the initiative debuff could become high value. This talent cannot be dodged, but can be resisted by debuff resist.
Bio-Poison Grenade[edit | edit source]
This is a powerful grenade talent. However, like most grenades, it can only be used from the front two positions. Sword-and-pistol combatants may have enough defense to survive in ranges to use this talent.
Lifeline[edit | edit source]
This is the emergency healing option for the Combat Medic. It heals substantially more than Cleansing Purge. It also gives a powerful all-around buff to the target! Careful attention must be paid to avoid pushing your combat medic into penalty initiative for the next turn here. While the initiative cost isn't much higher than Cleansing Purge, if you are at 1 or 2 initiative, it'll still knock you into penalty.
Flatline[edit | edit source]
An expensive group morale boost and debuff removal option. If you've been diligent about using Cleansing Purge, there is little reason to rely on this talent. However, against Xeno, if you're bringing a combat medic, you'll need to use this talent to deal with the large number of debuffs they fling at your crew. Cleansing Purge won't keep up.
Snakebite[edit | edit source]
This is a powerful utility attack that combos well with Bio-Poison Slugs as the bio-poison resistance penalty will enhance the other talent's damage. Further, this allows for stacking penalties to dodge. It is also very useful for knocking swordsmen into position 3 where they will typically have to waste a turn advancing instead of attacking your team.
