How to be a Medic
During the Cooperative play, as a medic, you don't have the most powerful gun at start. But you do have an useful gun, the Phenoix. What you might not realize is that you can use the Phenoix offensively to go in a battle and stay alive even when being shot at. As long you keep a direct laser link from the Phenoix, it will restore your health. Even with the Phenoix's restoration effect, a hit from a Titan will kill you, or maybe critially wound you. But as long you keep moving and keep the laser on an enemy, you will be able to restore the lost health. Only exceptions that you shouldn't do this tactic is with (of course) a Titan, Overseers/Primarchs/etc, a Stalker. It might be possible to pull this off against Maruders. Anyways, the Phenoix also is capable of "stealing" health through the sheilds of the Chimerian Auger or the Ravager's sheild. This is an useful feature as it can distract the Chimera long enough for the soldiers to get around their shields and let her rip. Also, don't forget to heal the other hurt members of your group, you would get a bit of exp. ALSO: Do not, in any circumstances, try to go solo, you might be able to last one on one, or maybe against two or a ravager. But a group of chimeria would kill you easily.
