    Does anyone feel that whenever a CO deploys, medics seem to focus too much on them

    I've got nothing against a CO's decision to deploy. I understand the reason behind that, be it for the morale or to allow themselves quicker coordination, but...

    ...as a squad medic enthusiast, I noticed whenever the CO gets in a dangerous situation and take some hefty damage as long with a bunch of marines, those combat ready marines get left out in the open or ignored for some amount of time.

    The CO could be the brains of the whole op, sure, but that marine has a bigger potential in combat situations since they're focus is not to command or be in touch with everyone, but keep xenos at bay with their equipment or outright kill them.


    Thoughts?

    Marines, especially PFCs, are just cannon fodders. Hell, as a medic, you should prioritize everyone else before a PFC, let alone a CO.

    The blue star gives you a lot of special treatment. However, xenos will also target you a lot more, and if you do get killed, you can bet you're getting gibbed by the queen.

    Well, PFCs are players too, so if ya ever see a CO with a medic already (who isn't ODing him on QC) then ye ought to help the PFCs.

    God forbid I ever approach somebody's patient other than check if he needs help if he's FUBAR.

    Other than that, unless that CO just acts like a gilded cannon fodder, he's good to prioritize I guess?

    Any marine is important in my eyes, especially the SPEC's.

    A good CO that deploys will have lifesaver on him since he has medic skills, so it's like treating another medic

    At the bare minimum I always snag an advanced med kit from the CIC armory.
