Want to learn about the intricacies of the medical profession in Mordhau? Then please join me in my lecture where I will explain everything about maintaining medical aid for your allies, traversing across the battlefield, and which tools benefit your job of Medical Professional the most!
The Medic Bag
The medic bag can be dropped on the ground, for anyone to fully heal their pitiful wounds, but please mind that the medic bag only persists for just 2 minutes. The medic bag also only contains 4 charges. These charges can be used by EVERYONE. Even the enemy! So be wary where you place them. An icon shows above the medic bag if you are below 100 health, this icon shows itself within 5 meters.
The Tools of the Medical Professional
- (1 point) Cat: Reduces fall damage by 50%. (Allows for easier navigation on the battlefield.)
- (1 point) Fireproof: Reduces fire damage by 80%. (You can just run through fire towards your medical-attention-needing friends.)
- (1 point) Friendly: 50% damage reduction to received and dealt team damage. (Your team likes to wide-swing while you stand near them… don’t be a victim… You’re here to help.)
And a few optional points:
- (4 points) Dodge: Jumping backwards or sideways will perform a dodge instead of a jump.
- (2 points) Brawler: Increases fist damage.
The combination of Dodge and Brawler makes you a swift fisticuffs damage machine against foolish enemies that stand in your way, while maintaining your total of 3 medic bags! How dare they stand in your way! Sock ’em up!
For armour: you do not need this… But you do need a good shirt! Wear something decent. You’ve studied the medical profession for years, you do not want to look like some mud-eating peasant, do you?! You need to stay light on your feet, so armour only slows you down.
Walking the Battlefield
Now you know how to navigate relatively savely between the rock and metal of your surroundings, you’ll need to know where your aid is needed. The easiest way is to view the “Friendly Markers” option in the Settings menu (scroll all the way down), and set it to “Teammates” (defaulted to “friends”). You can also press “H” in-game, but this will reset once you exit the game. These cross-markers will show above your teammates, allowing you to see where most of your allies are located.
Baring the knowledge of the battle grounds, and the location of your allies, you’ll need to head to the ‘fighting line’ (where both the enemy and your allies are fighting). You need to deposit your medic bag 3 to 5 meters behind your friendly lines, with each around 7 meters apart. This allows your wounded teammates to see the bag easily (the 5 meter icon range) and heal up safely (outside of friendly sword-swinging range). Keep in mind that these bags only stay there for 2 minutes maximum. So check up on each fighting line if there are multiple. You can maintain 3 fighting lines with 3 bags each (12 total charges per line). So remember which bags you placed first!
You will walk into a stray enemy every time you do your rounds, guaranteed. These flankers always seek out an easy kill, and you will always be a walking buffet for them on these flanking routes. If you can run, run towards alert allies (not behind your allies! You don’t want to lure the enemy to more snacks!). If you have no other option, don’t be afraid to give them a good rattling before your imminent demise! Do not worry though, you will just respawn with more medic bags.
Well then. Hereby I close this lecture, and I would like to see you perform your utter best in the upcoming field tests… That was it. Now scram!
