How to Play as Doc in Back 4 Blood

What’s a survival horror game without a paramedic? In this guide, we’ll explain How to Play as Doc in Back 4 Blood, her abilities, and some of the best cards for this character.

How to Play as Doc in Back 4 Blood

Back 4 Blood allows you to choose between 8 playable characters. While most of them are blood-thirsty and focus more on the enemies, Doc is a sweetheart. She’ll make sure that the fallen soldiers of her team receive the best paramedic services to get them back on their feet.

While her character is more inclined towards healing the damage, rather than doing some, she can still pick up a weapon and take out a few antagonists if the need be.


  • Field Medic: Each teammate will receive +25 HP
  • Skilled Physician: Increased healing efficiency by 30%
  • Triage: Increased team trauma resistance by 25%
  • Ready to Operate: Every mission will begin with a bandage

Most of her abilities are focused on healing. She’ll be providing better trauma resistance, more healing efficiency. And above all, she’ll be replenishing the HP of her teammates.

Best Weapons for Doc

Doc’s character is not best suited for any particular kind of weapon. But shooting a pistol or a gun isn’t rocket science.

Therefore, try handing her a similar weapon to that of the rest of the team, and she can play her part in shooting down a few enemies.

If the rest of the team is carrying long-ranged weapons, it’s better that you give her one of the long-ranged weapons as well.
