Front Line Medic is a Tier 3 equipment expertise training option for the Medic Class in Battlefield Play4Free. It allows players to activate a flare that will allow teammates who die nearby to spawn on them for a short duration.

Once the training point has been used to gain the Front Line Medic skill, the Front Line Flare will be placed in the player's inventory. It must be placed onto the medic's equipment bar in order to be used.
Once within a game, the medic can use deploy the front line flare as a spawn beacon for teammates. Any teammates who die within the nearby area may be spawned upon the beacon - including the medic themselves. Front line flares cannot be spawned upon when they are within the mainbase or nearby a firebase under control of an enemy. Front line flares can be destroyed by allied and enemy fire, and will eventually deactivate.
