    I think saying that medic weapons look like spellslinger weapons is a just the pattern-recognition part of your brain acting in overdrive.

    I'll still think of these weapons as "hand-mounted jet packs" since they were first sneakily revealed way back in one of the early videos where they demo'd the low grav area. I think it was pretty widely presumed they were a jet pack device rather than weapons. At least, I never saw much mention of them in the speculation threads.

    I want to see the "medic" have a Repulsor Blast. I mean come on.. they made the one in the video look enough like Iron [wo]man.
    I'm now most interested in the "medic" class specifically because of their weapon uniqueness.

    Edit: Adding a closer up view of the "hand mounted jet packs". :D

    unless someone has said it before already medic + the look of those things shooting electricity, shock paddles come to mind.

    It is a pair of blaster type weaponry where the only attack we've seen was a mid range cone attack, and we've only seen the one weapon model(as far as I remember) for this weapon group if it is a new weapon.

    is definitely a short/med range attack.

    The question for me is; is this character capable of following through with melee style attacks, or will they continue with ranged style attacks?
    I’m hoping for melee, otherwise there will not be much difference between this and the Spellslinger.

    What makes me wonder is that if this is the case, will engineers be a heavy armor class fighting at range? That would be so odd unless Carbine shocks us and makes medics the heavy armor wearers instead. Given how things have turned out now it seems likely. Still, two medium armor tanks and one heavy armor tank is also odd.

    Still really weird how in such different looking settings we've only seen one model for medic and engineer weapons.
    I had a terrible theory that this medic weapon was just a pair of slinger pistols but that wouldn't explain the mechari art with them, due to mechari offically not being able to sling spells.

    Hopefully we can see some more from this class whenever Carbine does another info release.

    The real twist would be if the Medics are actually the tanks! Maybe they are selfish Medics who only heal themselves. Maybe the Engineers are the "healers" who shoot healing goop on people or have a nifty healing gadget.

    Don't fear change. Maybe we need a Medic tank. I bet the Engineer heals with a gamepad.

    It would solve the problem of "ranged tanking" that people have brought up before, though. And the Medic's weapons could then be settled as being melee-range.

    i'd prefer if the medic was a healer and the engi a tank, albeit a different kind of tank then warrior/stalker is going to be. Honestly though who knows? We might find out come time around next Wednesday or Thursday.

    Maybe the ones in the mechari fanart but none of the others do.
