The '''Hazardous Environment Combat Unit Medic''', commonly abbreviated as the '''HECU Medic''', is an HECU class formally introduced as an ally in ''Half-Life Opposing Force''. He is trained in first aid and emergency surgery and has the ability to heal wounded soldiers in the field.''Half-Life Opposing Force'' instruction manual 

==Overview==

Much like the Black Mesa Science Team|Black Mesa scientist, the player can use the Medic to be healed by standing in front of him and pressing the Use key. He will give 1 health point with his syringe when pressing the Use key once, and will recharge the player's health as long as the Use key is held or until the health is full, much like a Health Charger. While doing so, he will say sentences like ''"This might sting a bit"'' or ''"Keeping you in one piece's proving to be quite a challenge!"''. The Medic can also heal other squad members. 

During combat, other soldiers may call for a Medic and he will run to their aid if he can hear them. However, he will only heal them if he is not already following the player.''Half-Life Opposing Force'' readme file

The Medic carries limited supplies. If used repeatedly, he will no longer be able to heal the player or the rest of the squad.

The Medic is equipped with a Desert Eagle or a Glock 17 and is best kept safely behind the front lines.

The ''Opposing Force'' Medic is first introduced during the training chapter, ''Boot Camp'', during the "Squad Training" exercise.

He comes with two different skins Caucasian and Afro-American.

While no Medic is ever seen in the original ''Half-Life'', HECU soldiers will sometimes call for one when dying.

==Behind the scenes==

*The Medic healing other soldiers who call him only if he has not been commanded to follow the player was added in case the player did not want the Medic using his valuable supplies on NPCs or to interrupt his alert combat mode. This feature was added after the manual had been written, and had to be addressed in the game's readme file instead.
*In real life Marines would be treated by Navy Hospital Corpsmen.
