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 reasonable 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. However, the initiative cost is far too high to justify using.

Cleansing Purge[edit | edit source]

This is the go-to healing talent for the Combat Medic. It removes debuffs, restores a decent amount of health and also restores morale. It is more expensive than its Doctor talent counterpart but the morale gain makes it a more balanced choice overall.

Vaccination Watch[edit | edit source]

A very situational talent really only useful if your foe is heavily relying on bio-poison damage and you have no immediate healing needs.

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.

Bio-Poison Grenade[edit | edit source]

This is a powerful grenade talent. However, like all grenades, it can only be used from the front position. Ideally your combat medic should never be there. It may work well if you are using both a sword and pistol combination though.

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.

Flatline[edit | edit source]

An expensive group morale boost and debuff removal option. If you've been diligent about using Cleansing Purge, there is no reason to use this talent.

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.
