I realize this is probably a stupid question but for someone who has never played this before, humor me.

I've been playing around with the different classes, trying to get a feel for them and when I got to medic, I found that I had no idea how to revive somebody. I've done some googling on it, and I'm guessing it is an unlock. In any case, can somebody break this poo down for me? BTW...why do I see people tossing out what look like med packs? What are those used for??

The med packs and paddles to revive are both unlocks. The med packs give people life when they take damage. You can't see your own health bar which is kind of dumb but if you get shot it goes down and you need to go stand by a health pack for a bit. You don't pick them up or anything just stand near it. Hit your D pad you might have unlocked the med packs or go to your unlock's page and see what is next for you to unlock. Are you on xbox or ps3?

Also, another good tip for Medic class;

If you fire your machine gun in bursts, fuhgeddabowdit. If someone is a long ways off, don't try to fire, correct, then fire again. The machine guns in BFBC2 actually stabilize with continued fire, so you get much better accuracy by holding down the trigger. Long story short, don't be frugal with your ammo if you're medic class.

Thanks for the tips. I'm on Xbox btw. You don't know how many times I've died trying to figure out what med packs are for (i.e. trying to pick them up) or how many times I've been mowed down trying to revive someone with what might as well have been pixie dust (i.e. nothing but a cold hard stare and frantic button mashing)

Haha. My buddies and i all did the same thing. The first day someone tossed one down we all ran to it like a pack of dogs trying to figure out how to pick it up. We were mesmerized by it.

LOL. That's exactly how I felt. I remember the first time like it was yesterday...which it was...I was in the heat of battle, bullets whizzing by my head while I returned fire. Then all of a sudden a teammate comes up and starts dropping magical boxes. Of course I stopped what I was doing and looked at the box like it had candy inside. I felt like I was being inhospitable by not picking it up...but I couldn't pick it up, I could only stare longingly at it. And then the next second I was still looking at it but my perspecive was different. I was looking at it from the side...with dirt in my mouth and my vision leaving me.

Exactly what I was thinking when I typed that...I finally got what I wanted all along...except I had to die to get it.

Dude ask questions keep with it. The game is damn good. I was horrible at first... then last night I was scoring 3-4K a round. It takes time.

I was in the same boat as you at first.
