This weapon is totally different to any other medic slot 1 weapon because its shot is a projectilemeaning it can be reflected by pyros. when you hit an ally with this, it heals, increasing as you getfurther away from your target. when hit an enemy it damages them just like healing allies, moredamage when there is more distance.
Stock Medigun vs. Kritzkrieg
The stock Medigun has to be, in my opinion, the best Medigun because it is amazing as an all-roundweapon, though really Medigun and Kritzkrieg are usually equally as strong. The reason I preferstock Medigun is because you can use your ÜberCharge as a "get out of jail free" card. It's the best tostart off with if you are new to the game. Both have the same heal rate, though the Kritzkrieg has a25% faster charge rate for ÜberCharge. This means with Kritzkrieg your aim is to get it up faster thanthe ÜberCharge so you can crit and kill the opposing medic, reducing the threat of an ÜberCharge vs.Kritzkrieg, because you will most likely loose having Kritzkrieg in that battle.
The Quickfix is rather underpowered and pointless in its given state. It's fun, but impractical. It's anice change in the way you play, but isn't really effective in any scenario. maybe when you are on a32 player server and you are the only medic maybe?
How to play
ok so now you know what weapons you want and what they do, now how do I play?
let's startwith movement. First things first, as medic, you NEVER want to stand still. that makes you moresusceptible to headshots and back stabs. With that said, you never want to be facing the same wayfor too long, keep looking around, behind you. This not only makes you more aware of yoursurroundings (knowing where your players are and your enemies are) but also lowers chances of being flanked and backstabbed.Medic is the second fastest class followed by pyro, with first being scout obviously. This should helpyou be able to dodge not only pipe spam from demos but also rocket spam. When it comes to facinga demo spamming pipes or stickies, what I try and do is not dodge his stickies but focus on justmaking my movements random. This makes you less predictable because, well, you can't evenpredict what you are doing. Another helpful skill is the "corner stab" technique. You might bethinking, how does this apply to medic? well it's all about what the technique does to youropponent. It confuses them. This enables you not only to have an advantage when getting way, butthis can also help for simply killing using your saw. It might not instantly kill him, but it still lets youget a free hit or low HP cost hit, especially vs. pyros.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXAMkBgtvBQ
