Auraxis is a dangerous planet, and in the aftermath of the great war that leveled entire continents, you’ll need to be more careful than ever before with your decisions before entering combat!
The most important decision you can make before dropping onto the battlefield is to choose your class. PlanetSide has always prided itself by offering deep class-based gameplay options, and PlanetSide Arena is no exception. Launching initially with 3 character classes – Assault, Medic, and Engineer – PlanetSide Arena offers you the ability to change up your play style, experiment with different team dynamics, and upgrade your character both in and out of matches to build the ultimate soldier.
Today’s class spotlight will focus on what could be the cornerstone of the classes: Medic.
As with all of the classes, the Medic comes equipped with a primary ability that can be activated by hitting the F key: Team Heal, which activates an area of effect (AoE) aura that heals you and your allies. We don't need to tell you why every other class is always going to be looking to you! The pain field is closing in and you're surrounded on all sides? A well-placed Team Heal might just be the key to victory.
The Medic's primary utility, or tool, is a Shield Totem (5 Key) that buffs the shield regeneration time of nearby allies. Handy if you're about to lead your Squad into a major fight, or you find yourself pinned down by a sniper from afar.
Along with its unique ability and utility, the Medic is the only class with access to Scout Rifles. It can also add unique weapon and battle suit mods outside of each match which amplify its healing rate and utility. As with the other classes, the Medic can find upgrades to their primary ability and utility within each match – level up your character so you’re prepared to keep your team and yourself fully prepared for the final conflict.
