What is your question? Many teamplayer medics go with 2 satchels if they think they can come in handy. In a small team you might prefer carrying some extra firepower obviously.

Fair enough, for the extra healing it would make sense... im kinda new to the online AS comunity. just thinking about it though, i would have thought the firepower would be needed as oposed to 14 heals, especially in a group of four.

You're right, no need bringing more heals than you use. I'm not a good medic, but I've always felt a responsibilty to keep my mates alive as far as possible if I choose that class. That means I almost always bring two satchels.

Welcome to the forums btw

I always take med satchel, flamer/shotgun, and a PMK, if someone gets infected due to carlessness then its body bag for them.

I almost always use two satchels + pistol, the pistol is better at keeping aliens dead than a rifle, in my opinion. Might be different for those who can't aim that well, though

The hunter rifle does give me a hard time choosing sometimes...

Medic Gear Solid?

I'll usually take 2 satchels and a pistol (or stims ) if we have a large team or it's a long map. I'll take shotgun satchel stims/gas otherwise.

Medics should take Rifle/Flamer/Flashlight for maximum accuracy and firepower.

dual satchels + pistol ftw \o/

Medics rock by the way - we (generally) get covered on all sides, and when leading a pack (which happens alot by the way) the pistol is surprising powerful .....
