A quick guide, explaining all the strengths and weaknesses of the Mediguns in Team Fortress 2.
✔️Practically required for taking out a good nest that has helpful teammates watching it
✔️Can be meaningfully used on multiple teammates at once
✔️Ubered Heavies can easily substitute a sentry and give your team time to recover
❌Will be wasted if used on a poorly-chosen pocket
❌Pyros ruin it by pressing one button, even if they die
Pairs best with Soldier and Demo on attack; Heavy and Pyro on defense; Countered by defensive Kritzkrieg and situationally Vaccinator.
✔️On defense, counters everything but Vaccinator. Ubercharge takes too long to build, another Kritzkrieg will get filtered by sentries, see the issues with Quick Fix below
✔️Relatively useful when used on any class
✔️Devastating when used on Soldiers, Demos, and Pyros
✔️Fastest charge overall
✔️Good for battle engis
❌Only situationally useful on attack
❌Basically useless against sentries
❌Your best pockets (Soldier and Demo) like to jump away from you as soon as you charge
❌Vulnerable even while charged
Pairs best with Soldier on attack; Soldier, Demo, Heavy, and Pyro on defense; Countered by Vaccinator and defenseive Ubercharge.
✔️Ideal pocketing tool. Rewards following one single aggressive player.
✔️Fastest charge time of all if your pocket is aggressive
✔️Can use all three resistances at once as a panic button
✔️Can get an Engineer behind enemy lines
✔️Pocketing a Sniper will make all enemy Snipers change class in short order
✔️Beats the Kritzkrieg
❌Shortest charge duration
❌Useless if the timing is bad
❌Useless if your pocket isn’t aggressive enough
❌Only a good pick if you’re trolling or making up for bad teammates
Pairs best with Heavy, Engineer, and Pyro on attack; Heavy, Pyro, and Sniper on defense; Countered by Ubercharge and (situationally) Quick Fix unless very well timed.
✔️Allows you to help with aerial attacks/flanking
✔️Fun with a Soldier buddy on community maps
✔️Relatively fast charge time
✔️Can keep multiple squishy teammates topped off
✔️Helpful when retreating frequently
✔️The best pick for a bad team
❌Pretty much only useful for trolling
❌Outclassed in all fields by the rest if your team has at least one powerclass
❌Only counters Vaccinator as long as the Vaccinator isn’t fully charged
Pairs best Sniper, Scout, Spy, Engineer, and Medic if they’re playing “seriously,” ; Soldier and Demo if they’re jumping or you’re on a community server; Countered by everything except the Vaccinator.
