Fallout 76 Combat Medic co-op build - Odealo

Fallout 76 Combat Medic co-op build - Odealo

One of the most important members of your Scorchbeast Queen hunting team

Combat Medic
Co-op version
Fallout 76 Build

General information

Combat Medic is the best Support character for any end-game team in Fallout 76. This build is not suited for playing solo and was never intended to be played in such a way. Most of the Perks listed in this build are solely for the purpose of supporting your teammates on the battlefield via healing, restoring thirst and hunger, opening locked doors, and hacking computers. Thanks to Combat Medics, everyone else can focus on maximizing DPS so that your team can face any Boss in the game. 

Below you will find all the recommended Perks for each of the SPECIAL attributes and a brief introduction to this build's equipment, consumables, and mutations.

SPECIAL Attributes and Perk Cards

Strength FO76STRENGTH

Barbarian

Every point of Strength adds +4 Damage Resist (Max 80). (No Power Armor)

Traveling Pharmacy

The weight of all Chems (including Stimpaks) is reduced by 90%.

Sturdy Frame

Armor weighs 50% less than normal

Strong Back

Gain +40 to carry weight

Strength attribute will increase your carry weight which allows you to carry a lot more Chems, Stimpacks, food, and drinks. You should be also able to help your teammates with carrying ammo

Perception FO76PERCEPTION

[7 POINTS]

Butcher's Bounty

80% chance to find extra meat when you "Search" an animal corpse

Green Thumb

Reap twice as much when harvesting flora

Picklock

Expert Picklock

Gain +1 lockpicking skill, and the lockpicking 'sweet spot' is 10% larger

Master Picklock

Gain +1 lockpicking skill, and the lockpicking 'sweet spot' is 10% larger

You can put some extra points in Perception and get level 3 Lockpicking skill. It is a very useful ability in every team. Other than that, Perception should be your last concern

Endurance FO76ENDURANCE

[9 POINTS]

Iron Clad

Gain 50 Damage and Energy Resistance while not wearing Power Armor.

RAD RESISTANT 4

+40 Radiation Resistance.

Endurance is necessary to grant you some extra personal defenses. Ironclad is very important if you aren't using a Power Armor, and Rad Resistant is also very useful

Charisma FO76CHARISMA

[15 POINTS]

Bodyguards

Gain 12 Damage & Energy Resist (max 36) for each teammate, excluding you

PHILANTHROPIST 3

Restore much more of your team's hunger and thirst when you eat or drink

RAD SPONGE 3

When affected by rads, you periodically heal 200 rads on nearby teammates

TEAM MEDIC 3

Your stimpaks now also heal nearby teammates for their full strength

ANTI-EPIDEMIC 2

Your disease cures always cure a disease from nearby teammates too

Charisma is the most important attribute of a team player. Your main role is to support your team, and this is what Charisma is all about. High Charisma also allows you to share one Perk with your teammates

Intelligence FO76INTELLIGENCE

[7 POINTS]

First Aid

Stimpaks restore 45% more lost health

Chemist

You get double the quantity when you craft Chems!

Hacker

Gain +1 hacking skill, and terminal lock-out time is reduced

Expert Hacker

Gain +1 hacking skill, and terminal lock-out time is reduced

Master Hacker

Gain +1 hacking skill, and terminal lock-out time is reduced

First Aid is obviously extremely useful for a Medic character. Rest of the Perks is optional, but just like Lockpicking Skill, Hacking can grant your team access to locked out areas and valuable loot

Agility FO76AGILITY

[3 POINTS]

THRU-HIKER 2

Food and drink weights are reduced by 90%

Agility is not very important in this build, but getting Thru-Hiker will certainly allow you to carry much more stuff with you

Luck FO76LUCK

[3 POINTS]

 GOOD WITH SALT 3

Food in your inventory will spoil 90% more slowly

Food in Fallout 76 can decay over time, and if you are carrying around a lot of it (at least you should be) without this Perk a lot of it may go to waste

Equipment

ARMOR: There are no strict requirements for armors in this build. You should aim to get as much Damage and Energy Resistance as possible since you aren't using a Power Armor in this build

WEAPON: You don't have any Perks that increase your damage directly, so the only thing you can benefit from is your Strenght attribute and melee weapons. You can use a Golf Club or some other light melee weapon that will help you out if your teammates let an enemy close to you

CHEMS: All you need as a Combat Medic are Stimpacks, Disease cure, and a lot of Food and Drinks. They all benefit both you and your teammates which is the core utility of a Medic character

Mutations

There is a bunch of useful mutations for a medic. Keep in mind that if you get any of them you should get the Starched Genes perk (will require an additional 2 points in Luck). It will allow you to keep the beneficial mutations forever. Below you will find the list of mutations that are extremely good for a Medic:

  1. Empath - reduces the damage taken by your teammates by 25%, but increases the damage you receive by 33%. Assuming that's not too much for you to handle, this is the best possible mutation for a Medic character
  2. Herd Mentality - the best mutation for any team player. It increases all your SPECIAL stats by 2 whenever you are in a team, and reduces them by the same amount if you play solo. Well, as a Medic it's highly unlikely you will wander alone
  3. Scaly Skin - increases your Damage and Energy Resistance but reduces your maximum AP by 25. The downside is negligible since you aren't using AP in combat except for Sprinting. In most cases, it should be manageable
  4. Grounded - increases your Energy Resistance and reduces your Energy Damage. Obviously, since you don't use any weapons, you can completely ignore the negative effect of this mutation and enjoy some "free" extra defenses
