Team Fortress 2 Medic Achievements Unveiled

Accompanying our impressions of the new map and details of the new weapons, developer Valve has issued a list of the 36 Medic-specific achievements that will soon arrive in its class-based multiplayer shooter Team Fortress 2.

As noted in our interview with Team Fortress 2 director Robin Walker, though the Medic is the first class to receive new achievements and unlockable weapons, the company plans to eventually grace the other eight classes with additional armament and achievements.

"We're also going to be looking at ways that players can get items other than achievement unlocking," Walker stated. While some of the achievements aren't all that complicated, other are bound to require a careful mixture of time and luck.

The complete list of new Medic-specific achievements follows:

  1. First Do No Harm: Play a full round without killing any enemies and score the highest on a team of 6 or more players.
  2. Quadruple Bypass: Heal a teammate who's taking fire from 4 enemies at once.
  3. Group Health: Work with 2 other medics to deploy 3 simultaneous uber-charges.
  4. Surgical Prep: Have an uber-charge ready before the setup phase ends.
  5. Trauma Queen: Deploy 3 uber-charges in less than 5 minutes, and assist in 5 kills during that time.
  6. Double Blind Trial: Deploy an uber-charge within 8 seconds of a nearby enemy medic deploying his.
  7. Play Doctor: In a team with no medics, be first to switch to medic after a teammate calls "Medic!" and then heal 500 health.
  8. Triage: Deploy an uber-charge on a teammate less than a second before they're hit by a critical explosive.
  9. Preventive Medicine: Block the enemy from capturing a control point with an uber-charged teammate.
  10. Consultation: Assist a fellow medic in killing 5 enemies in a single life.

      A lot of these are going to be next to impossible to get unless you just create a dummy server with your friends. Seriously, have a heavy punch 4 people in 10 seconds? Yeah good luck with that.

      Thankfully, the only good unlock is the one for 12 achievements. The others are flashy but ridiculously impractical.

      A few of them don\'t really seem possible without boosting with friends.

        Yeah. 13, 14, and 17 seem so, and even some of the accumulative ones (11/12 in particular) will take a lot of time and luck without specifically organized servers. Again, though, there are more than enough easy ones there to get the Blutsaugher, and that\'s by far the best of them.
