Battlefield 5 Medic Class Guide – Unlocks, Healing, Spotting, Combat Roles, Tips

The Medic class is one of the most important ones in Battlefield 5 because it can heal the entire team. The classes in the new Battlefield game are very varied and give you many customization options, so you will need our Battlefield 5 Medic Class Guide to make sense of how to utilize the class to its maximum potential.

Battlefield 5 Medic Class

There are a lot of unlocks that you can do when you increase the level of your Medic class. Not only that, but you also have two different combat roles which we will be discussing in detail later on.

The class is versatile because you may have noticed and can be used to deal tons of damage despite the name that implies the fact that healing is a priority.

Let us go ahead and look at some of the ways through which you can be more effective when using the Medic in Battlefield 5.

Medic Unlocks

Let us look at what you unlock for each level that you progress with the class:

  • Level 1: Suomi KP/-31 SMG
  • Level 2: Smoke Grenade
  • Level 3: Ruby Sidearm
  • Level 4: Medical Crate, Hatchet
  • Level 5: M1911 Sidearm
  • Level 6: MP 40 SMG, Anti-Personnel Mine (Bouncing Betty)
  • Level 7: Club Melee Weapon, P08 Sidearm

  • Level 17: Kukri Melee Weapon
  • Level 18: British Army Jacknife Melee Weapon
  • Level 19: Liberator Sidearm
  • Level 20: M1928A1 “Tommy Gun”, Medic Mastery I


Players only regain a small amount of health and need to rely on Medics for everything else. Not only that, any squadmate can revive another one rather than only the Medic being able to do so.

Give bandages to your squad mates so that they can heal their health above their critical level. You can also resupply your bandages at a Medical Crate.


Remember to spot players that you are going to revive them. This will have an icon on their screen telling them that you are on your way, ensuring that they do not skip the revive screen and respawn in.

Combat Roles

There are two different combat roles that you can have when using the Medic class. Let us see the differences in them:

Field Medic
This is the combat role that you will have for you by default. This role allows you to get more “Requisition” if you provide your squad with bandages to heal.

Not only that, but you also get a movement speed bonus when someone is down and calling for your help to revive them.

Combat Medic
The Combat Medic role is unlocked once you get to Level 8 with this class. This role allows you to have longer reach when using melee weapons, making it easier for you to engage in close quarter combat.

It will also allow you to sprint faster when your health is low, ensuring higher survivability in tight situations.
