I asked in game about how to call a medic and someone said that you press Q. But I couldn't get it to work, so maybe this person was pulling my chain.

How do you call for a medic?

On PS3, you have to target a medic of your team (i.e. look at him with your crosshairs) and press Select.

You're on PC and Q is the right key, so I'm guessing the problem is you didn't target a friendly medic with your crosshair first. They have to be close enough. If it works, you'll hear your guy screaming out for help.

Yes, it is Q on PC. – kusoksna Jan 11 '11 at 8:33
expanding: if you do this while looking at an assault class, it'll ask for ammo; for engineers it'll ask for repairs. – Gauzy May 13 '11 at 2:32
I find it a bit idiotic to first look for a medic before you can cry out for help. I prefer bf42 mechanism: F2, F1 MEDIC! – RvdK May 13 '11 at 10:16

The answer (if you are on pc) is actually E to call for medic.So I think he WAS pulling your leg. :\

This question is about Bad Company 2, not Team Fortress 2. – Texenox Dec 13 '15 at 9:39
