Medic! Medic! |

I played Call of Duty 3 last night and had to try entering several games before successfully connecting to one. And by “several” I mean seven. Seven games that I couldn’t connect to! 🙁 “Could not connect to other players.” Or something like that. Then I finally got into a game that somehow ended… somehow. In the middle. The server kicked me out. That’s really annoying. And I never have this problem playing Resistance.

Anyway, I finally got into a game that didn’t abort on me. And I had a lot of fun. I shotgunned a bunch of players. The shotgun is my reason for becoming a medic. I like the shotgun. The level was a castle with a courtyard in the middle, and I tried to circle around behind the enemy team and blast them from there. Sometimes it worked. Ah, good times. Good times.

But I have a question for all you CoD3 players out there: how the heck do I revive someone? As the medic, I could if I wanted to. But I haven’t figured out how to do it. I tried standing near the medic-needing person. Kneeling. Hitting all the buttons. Nothing.

So if anyone out there knows how to revive someone, please tell me!!!


In the first game I played there was a medic who kept killing me and reviving me. He eventually got voted off. Or left, or whatever. Annoying. I wish I could remember his name so I could put him on my ban list.

[Edit: Does anybody else find the shotgun in CoD3 a little weak compared to CoD2? In CoD2, one shotgun blast at 8 feet will kill someone. Not so in CoD3. I had to hit people two or even three times before they died. Only rarely did one shot procure a kill. ]

[Edit: Activision sucks! I contacted their support about this, and they say that they do not give out “hints” to the game! Basic game usage is a hint? Give me a break! ]

[Edit: Another person told me it was the R2 button to revive someone, so that’s two people now who have said that. I’ll give that a try. I just hope I don’t end up grenading myself! 🙂 ]

    It will be the right shoulder button that you dont use for firing, when you get close to him a little symbol will appear and you’ve got to hold down the button, it takes a second or two.

    I’m not entirely sure because i’ve only got the Xbox 360 version where the R trigger is shoot, and RB is revive (if you’re a medic anyway).

  • I didn’t see any symbol appear when I got close to the people in need of attention. I had that needle symbol in the right-bottom corner of the screen, but it’s always there. What’s this new symbol, and where on the screen is it?

  • Hmmm. It just occured to me that R1 is fire weapon and R2 is grenade. So I don’t think that’ll work!!

    i have CoD3 on the 360 and i cannot connect to a SINGLE game online.. i can host but i cant join. I asked support for help and they told me to watch for a patch.. absolute joke.

    ^ i was just going to say that. i had troubles for COD 2 and COD 3 as far as connecting on my 360. even with the COD 2 patch, it wasnt perfect.

    I might be picking this one up soon. I only have Resistance so far and was debating getting the 360 version or the PS3 version of this game. I think I’ll snag the PS3 just to have a 2nd game.

    Henning, you see the screenshot? Above the ammo counter in the bottom right is the secondary function, being either ammo, a different weapon or a needle. It’s the same button for both and is more than likely one of the shoulder buttons, try being a support or anti-tank class and pressing the buttons, one button will drop Ammo.

    It’s the same button to revive people, you will need to hold it.

  • Cool, thanks!

    You should try to connect to a ranked Gears of War server (from Canada). Its disconnect after disconnect!

    For PS3 it is the R2 button; L2 is the smoke grenade
