Combat Medicine is an ability for the Soldier kit in Battlefield Heroes. It is the game's equivalent of a Medkit healing the player and his/her allies around the spot where it was activated. Combat Medicine is unlocked by default for the Soldier class, and can be upgraded. through the expenditure of Hero Points. Each point spent on the ability upgrades the amount of health that the player and allies receive. For each point of an ally's health that healed by combat medicine, the user of the ability gains one XP, making it very useful for both health and levelling reasons.
