To promote the game, Valve released a ten-video advertisement series, "Meet the Team", starting in May One of the Medic's doves is named after Archimedesa Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. A mysterious woman presumably resembling Miss Pauling can be seen through the window at 0: The labels on the hearts at 1: The smallest heart appears to have no label on it. Despite the Medic believing otherwise, human ribs are actually capable of growing back when properly shortened.
In the opening, when the Demoman is fleeing from the BLU Soldiers in a wheelchair, he has a bandage over the top part of his head and an eyepatch worn on top of the bandage. Later, when the Demoman is healed by the Medic, he rips off the bandage with the eyepatch on it to reveal another eyepatch underneath the bandage.
Similarly, when he is fleeing from the Soldiers in the first battlefield scene, his Stickybomb Launcher rests on his lap and is his only visible weapon. In the second battlefield scene, the Grenade Launcher replaced the Stickybomb Launcher, but after an explosion sends him flying out of his wheelchair, the weapon that lands in front of him is, mysteriously, the Stickybomb Launcher instead of the Grenade Launcher he was just holding. In the up-close scene of the Demoman fleeing the Soldiers, the Engineer and Sniper are missing.
The Quick-Fix uses sounds from the Medi Gun. After the Heavy kills the Soldiers onscreen and continues to fire at unseen enemies, the Medic poses as in the Meet the Medic taunt.

It is also critical for Medics to heal all of their teammates rather than focusing only on their Heavy -buddy. This recovers all of your teammates after taking a point from the other team, charges your Medigun faster The Medigun charges faster when healing teammates than when over-healing teammatesand also allows you to over-heal multiple teammates simultaneously, giving them that much more health to take enemy hits.
This comes at a small disadvantage, however: The best use of this gun would be during the event where enemies thin out the number of Sentries and when Spies are few on the opposing team.

It also makes a good offensive maneuver when keeping the enemy at bay. The Bonesaw holds the greatest chance of offering critical hits out of all the classes' melee weapons. This allows for some surprisingly effective attacks against Spies after either the Medic or his heal-buddy. This can also unbalance the enemy, since many do not expect to be attacked by the Medic while engaging the Medic's heal-buddy. However, its attack rate is slower than the normal Bonesaw which may give the Medic a second of vunerability when he attacks.
The Medic has difficulty on his own offensively; it is crucial to defend and alert your heal-buddy to enemies he may not be aware of.
