The Team Medic
Hearing the scream of 'medic' you jump to your feet and bolt into the direction of the shouts. BB's whizz above your head and kick up dirt from the ground. Zigzagging closer to your hit buddy, lungs at breaking point the Red Cross patch on your arm re-assures him that he'll be back in the game in no-time
One of the least popular airsoft roles, but the most rewarding. The medic needs to be physically fit, as he/she needs to react to the calls of downed team mates across the skirmish field.
Most of the time you will be used as a reserve rifleman, as your gear should reflect this. But your main duty will be patching up BB scrapes and the odd sprain or twisted ankle. You're gonna be the guy with the magic touch!
Red cross/Medic velcro patch(es) or armband
Any First aid/Medical trauma molle pouch(es)
basically consisting of - Plasters (bandaids)
and any other basic first aid gear.
Ofcourse non of this is essential gear, but it really can make the role feel much more authentic and rewarding. And it really does help if you are a competent first aider as your team mates may just be grateful one day.
Patch em' up and send em' back
