I’m rather new to this great game, and was wondering what medic you would suggest to a new player that is still learning his trade. I only dared play 1 hunt online so far, and it was a disaster. I took Slim because he felt good against bots, but I didn’t expect to be focused down that hard and often, so although I had a rather decent team, I think I lost us the game pretty bad (sry guys).
Since then I’m wondering which medic you would suggest for a new player, or should I let the team decide which medic to play? There probably already exist topics about this, and i’ve watched youtube videos about which medic is best, but neither concentrates on the fact that I’m a Newb and most of them are from February and not certainly not post Patch 5.0.
My feeling about the medics I’ve already tried:
No offensive power whatsoever and more importantly no escape mechanism and no mechanism to heal herself, so struck me as pretty hard to play, although the tranq gun is pretty awesome!
Nice main weapon and nice escape, but no healing power to speak off. Further i’ve heard he is the low skill bracket medic that gets focused down even more, than all the other medics, so I’m a little afraid to use him.
While the speed boost is great and can be misused for an escape mechanism, I really don’t get the hang of the grenade launcher… The low clip size makes this very hard to use.
Most enjoyable medic for me, besides Laz, but needs to be relatively near the action which makes it harder not to get focused down, especially since he doesn’t really have an escape mechanism.
So what would you suggest, or should I rather concentrate on another class until I’m better at this game.
