A real-life medikit.

The Medkit is a small box or bag used/dropped by the Medic, Assault or Support classes to heal themselves and other soldiers that are within range. They are featured in every game in the Battlefield series except Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield Heroes.

Battlefield 1942Edit

The Medkit is a gadget featured in Battlefield 1942 and is issued to the Medic kit. It is used to heal an injured player, all the way up to full health. It can be used to both heal the player possessing it as well as other wounded players. It can 'overheat', to avoid abuse of the medical bag, but it only "overheats" after a long time of consistent healing. Generally, players can heal a very large amount of health before it overheats.

Battlefield VietnamEdit

The Medkit is a gadget featured in Battlefield Vietnam and is issued to the Assault, Heavy Assault, and Scout kits for the MACV - Studies and Observations Group. It acts exactly as it does in Battlefield 1942, with the same model and animations.

World War II ModEdit

The Medkit is issued to the USMC and IJA as a healing implement in the World War II Mod.

Battlefield 2Edit

"The Medic Bag is used to heal friendly soldiers. Hold the bag when you are near friendly soldiers to gradually heal them. Alternatively, you can throw one on the ground and any teammate who runs over it will be healed fully."
— In-game description

The Medic Bag is a gadget featured in Battlefield 2 and is issued to the Medic kit. It takes the form of a bag with medical supplies inside and strapped tight. It gradually heals player for a short period of time or can be thrown on the ground to instantly heal players to full health. A player can deploy a maximum of 5 Medic Bags on the ground before throwing the next one replaces the first one. The Medkits are also very useful as bait for enemy infantry. The player can use one to lure an enemy toward a booby trap (e.g. a Claymore anti-personnel mine). They can also be used to reset the bodies of severely wounded players which would normally be impossible to revive (e.g. if they are clipping or too far away from the soldier's kit).


Battlefield 2142Edit

Medic Hub
Unlocked at Unlocked at start
Kit Assault

The Medic Hub is a gadget featured in Battlefield 2142 and is issued to the Assault kit as standard equipment. It can be thrown on the ground to heal nearby teammates (and enemies). Holding the hub increases the healing rate, though an "exhausted" hub cannot be thrown to the ground. A deployed hub will expire if its contents have been exhausted, enough time has passed, or it has received too much damage.

The Advanced Medic Hub upgrade increases the healing rate, and also allows an Assault soldier inside a vehicle to heal infantry outside the vehicle.


Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit

The Medkit is a gadget featured in Battlefield: Bad Company and is issued to the Support kit. The in-game health system has that players do not regenerate health over time. If a player is injured, a medic kit dropped nearby will be "consumed" by the player to heal themselves to full health over a short period of time (by 5 HP increments).

In order to deploy a medkit, one must select the medkit, then they can see the player holding it. The player must then press the fire button (R1 or RT) to drop it on the ground. While holding the medkit, it heals the player holding it, but at a slower rate than with the medkit on the ground.

An unlimited number of medkits can be dropped by one player at a time. The healing process can be interrupted by a single point of damage on the healing player.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

"Stocked with the latest advancements in modern medicine, this portable medical bag is deployed to aid severely injured soldiers trapped in a hot spot. Limited contents are offset by a high potency level allowing for rapid healing."
— In-game description

The Medkit is a gadget featured in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and is issued to the Medic kit. Players will slowly regenerate health over time, but if a Medkit is dropped nearby an injured player, it will speed up this process drastically, as well as provide the kit deployer with experience points.

A Medkit can be used by any player, even enemies, and can heal multiple players at once. It can also heal through walls. If the player switches classes after deploying one or more Medkits, they will still gain experience points if a teammate heals through his or her medkit.

BFBC2 Medkit Render

A Medkit takes 2 seconds after deployment before it begins healing, and heals 10 player health per second in a radius of 3.5 meters. The Medkit has a limit of 200 health to heal. The Medic Kit Improved Heal specialization increases the speed of healing by 50%, allowing the Medkit to heal 10 health every 0.5 seconds. With the Medic Kit Improved Range specialization, radius is doubled from 3.5m to 7m, allowing healing over a larger distance.

Only one medkit can be dropped at a time as opposed to an unlimited number. On consoles, the player automatically drops the medkit to the ground. On PC, the player still holds the medkit, meaning the player has to manually drop it to the ground.

Without a medkit, players regenerate health at a rate of 3 health per second after not taking damage after 6 seconds. Players do not regenerate health in Hardcore.


Battlefield: Bad Company 2: VietnamEdit

The Medkit in battlefield Play4Free


The Medkit is a gadget featured in Battlefield Play4Free and is issued to the Medic kit. It functions in a near-identical manner to its counterparts in other games, gradually restoring an amount of health. However, two alternatives to the medkit exists, the field bandages and the adrenaline shot. If a medic puts points into the Training tree related to the medkit, they can improve the healing range and amount of health a kit can heal before disappearing, as well as the capability of placing two or three medkits at once.

"A deployable Medical Kit provides healing over time to soldiers near the kit, greatly speeding the body’s natural healing processes. "
— Battlelog description

The Medic Kit is a gadget featured in Battlefield 3 for the Assault kit. Unlike previous games, the medkit's healing effect does not stack as players receive the same high rate of healing regardless of how many medkits are nearby. If a teammate's medkit is nearby, it is marked with an icon with a bandage on the mini-map. Enemy medkits can be used as well with same effect, though they are not marked on the mini-map.

Players can opt for using the M320 or M26 MASS instead, sacrificing their healing ability for more firepower. The medic kit can be placed on and in vehicles allowing them to become mobile healing points. The Medkit will disappear when the user deploys another one. They can also be destroyed by enemy gunfire or explosives.
