"I'm here to save lives! With my support, our soldiers can stay in the fight when the going gets hot."


  • ​The Medic is the sixth troop to unlock. It is unlocked at Headquarters level 15.
  • The Medic heals other troops, increasing their survivability. However, they themselves do not deal damage.

Visual Appearance

  • The Medic appears as a fair-skinned man with a blue uniform, a satchel, glasses, and a white helmet with red crosses on it.

Offensive Strategy

  • Medics are the only Troops that ignore flares. They only follow injured Troops, and if none of your troops are injured they just follow the closest troop. Keep this in mind when maneuvering your Troops because Medics will tend to move fairly erratically.
    • If there are no non-Medic Troops on the battlefield, the Medics will just stand still.
  • ​Keep Medics behind other troops so that defensive buildings won't target them.
  • Make sure you have at least 2 Medics on the battlefield, as they can heal each other.
    • A single Medic, however, is still able to heal himself, but only if he is healing a troop that is close enough to him such that he is affected by his own splash healing.
  • Medics do not work well with Zookas, as the Zookas have such low health that they can be killed in one hit by many defenses.
  • Medics and Warriors don't go together, as the Warriors are faster than the Medics and will leave the Medics behind.
  • When using Medics, watch out for Cannons and Boom Cannons, as the Medics can't heal as fast as those two do damage. This is especially bad since you will most likely be using Tanks and Heavies with Medics, and both of those are bad against Cannons and Boom Cannons.

Defensive Strategy

  • Killing Medics may seem easy as they don't do any damage themselves. However, it should be noted that Medics can heal each other and will usually be behind groups of other troops during a raid.
  • Make sure you protect your Cannons and Boom Cannons, as these could be your only chance of surviving a Medic-Tank/Heavy-Zooka attack.

Upgrade Differences

  • There are no visual changes between levels, but each upgrade increases the Medic's hitpoints (by 8.8%), HPS (Healing per Second) (by 1), and training cost.


  • The Medic heals troops by throwing a small Medkit towards them.
  • Troop damage Magma Statues do not increase the Medic's HPS.
  • The Medic is one of two troops that does not fit perfectly into a level 20 Landing Craft, the other being the Scorcher.
  • Medics can heal other troops even while being covered by a Smoke Screen.
  • He bears a strong resemblance to "Radar" from the TV show M.A.S.H.

    • It is a confirmed bug which SC already recognizes, and they state that they will fix this in the next update.
    • This issue has been fixed with the last update. My medics now heal themselves and others when engulfed in smoke.
  • Medic not heal troops inside smoke

    • Technically all-Tank attackers won't be using Medics, but it does hurt Tmed users. But you must note that we are not SC and we cannot...
    • Technically he said "all tank" and not "all-tank", so the post does refer to any tank attack without confusion.
