Too many times I have tried to bandage a teammate, only to hop over a nearby wall instead. Cursed X button!

One time I tried to shiv a guy who was stunned by a smoke bomb only to open a supply cache right next to him... Smiley Sad

I normally love the fact that I can be a mobile medic and heal people while we're crouch-walking forward.. except when it causes me to play leapfrog with a low-wall or open window...

I prefer execute having priority, if I revive a teammate near a downed enemy he'll just steal my execution, so I prefer to execute first.

So the dilemma is:

Heal priority- people who think kill-stealing is bad will get **bleep**

Kill priority - people who think teammates should heal teammates are **bleep**

What now?

If I have time, I'll half-heal them so they do not die, execute, then finish the revive.

Execute vs. revive:

 

Make sure there's less distance between you and whichever one you want to interact with. If you can't do that, make sure to aim at the side of your desired target that's furthest from the one you don't want to aim for.

 

Heal vs. jump over something:

 

Don't push towards cover. Stop moving or make sure you're moving towards the heal target and NOT towards any cover you might potentially jump over, OR just stop moving altogether. Get into cover, turn to aim away from the cover, let go of the left stick, then start healing the wounded teammate.

 

Priority changes would be nice, but for now, knowing how the mechanics work helps to avoid problems.

Can you actually half-heal someone? I don't think so dude. Healing someone stops the timer for the duration of the kill, but healing time doesn't increase death timer time.

I should know. Someone was a split-second away from death, I almost healed him, but someone showed up, so I stop healing to shoot and then he died.

Its nice that we should " stop moving altogether", but sometimes you're on the run from enemies...

We need button combos to ensure activity.
